    There's a story behind the shot you see above of one of my all-time favorite actresses, Julia Roberts. Before I left for New York, I had applied for a permit for RC Concepcion and I to shoot with tripods (gasp!) at Grand Central Station. After doing a little digging on the Grand Central Station Website, I found instructions on where to apply for permission to shoot with a tripod (or other professional gear) inside the station (I found this in their FAQ section). They did want to know what the purpose of our shoot was, and I told them it was for images to be used in my upcoming book which deals with digital photography, and they approved my request. They wanted specific times, dates, etc. but they were very friendly and helpful, and let us shoot right around dawn on Sunday, which I…

    I'm off to Hartford, Connecticut today to teach my Photoshop CS3 Power Tour tomorrow, but until then, here's some tasty Monday News Nuggets (now with more antioxidants and fiber): I came up with a great idea for a t-shirt that's a play on the popular bumper stickers and shirts worn by skateboaders, which reads "Skateboading is not a crime." You can find these online all over, so I just had to mock-up one for us tripod-using photographers just for fun (UPDATE: I mentioned this morning that had thought of setting up a CafePress.com site where you could actually buy the real shirt, but then I thought....ya know, I should probably get back to writing my book. Luckily, one of my readers, Rob Jones, took the challenge and created the shirt design, and it's now available at CafePress.com [here's the direct link]. He priced it…

    Hi everybody. Here's what's going on: First, the photos above (taken by RC Concepcion) are from NAPP week at B&H Photo's store in New York City earlier this week (the class shot is during Matt's Lightroom class). During the lunch break between sessions the gang at B&H took me to the Katz Deli (made famous by the movie When Harry Met Sally), and I had the best Corned Beef Rubuen of my life. Thanks to everyone who came out to see my class, and to the folks at B&H for being such gracious hosts to Me, Matt, and RC during the week. You guys are the best. (P.S. Hi Mordy). Speaking of that class; the SelectedPixels blog did "live blog coverage" during my B&H Photo class on my Photoshop Seven-Point System; you can check it out, and their photos, right here. This is too…

    The most eagerly awaited (OK, even I couldn't do that one with a straight face, so let me start again). The most overdue online class of the year, my "Professional Portrait Retouching Online Class" for KelbyTraining.com finally goes live tomorrow. After incorporating your ideas and input for other techniques that should be added to the class, it turned out to be a retouching love-fest that was nearly four and half hours long, so I wound up breaking it into two separate classes; a part 1 and part 2, and both parts go live Friday. Check out the video below to learn more about the class, what it covers, and how it all works, then tomorrow afternoon check out the class itself on KelbyTraining.com.

    Last week I posted a field report review of Hoodman's RAW UDMA high-speed memory cards, and in my report I mentioned that while the cards performed flawlessly for me, and were fast as blazes, I couldn't find a reason to justify their higher cost vs. similar size and speed Lexar and SanDisk cards (the Hoodman RAW cards run $70 to $80 more per card). Yesterday, I heard from Lou Schmidt, VP of Marketing over at Hoodman Corporation, who sent this response to my review. I'm publishing his comments in their entirety below, but to cut to the chase, I called out in red why they're more expensive, which told me exactly why they're worth every extra penny. Here's what Lou had to say: "Thanks for the fine review of our Hoodman RAW CF cards… Thanks too for giving us the opportunity to explain why…
