Audi R8 Detail Shoot with some interesting new lights
When I found out one of my friend’s had a brand new red Audi R8, I was begging them to let me shoot it, and this week I got about an hour to shoot some detail shots (here’s a few above), and the car was, just insane! I’m hoping to get another chance soon to shoot the full car in an airplane hanger, so I’m pretty psyched. But for this shoot I tried out some groundbreaking new lights, and I don’t want to spill the beans because I did a behind-the-scenes video (hopefully I can share it here next week), but they were pretty darn slick, and I can’t wait to share it with you as soon as the video is ready.

Location shoot for Empower Boxing
Yesterday I snuck out of the office with Brad to do a quick portrait with James, the owner of the literally just-opened Empower Boxing gym in Tampa, Florida. Very cool guy and a very cool set-up, with heavy bags hanging…well…everywhere. Some behind-the-scenes shots coming next week as well.

Wednesday’s Episode of “The Grid”
If you missed this week’s “Scott Responds to the Creative Cloud Feedback” episode of “The Grid,” the rebroadcast is above. The first half of the show is about Adobe’s subscription-only announcement, and the 2nd half is about an idea I had for Adobe for photographers, and it got lots of love from the community. If you’re going to comment here, make sure you watch the Grid first, before you comment, ’cause if I can tell you didn’t watch it, I’m pulling it. Just so ya know.

That’s it for now. Hope you all have a great Friday, and a kick-butt weekend.

Cheers,

-Scott

P.S. I’m in Seattle with my new tour on May 23rd, and then LA on the 24th. Hope you can join me

Hi gang — other short video above explains how the Photoshop World Conference and Expo has evolved over the past few years.  It’s exciting to see how it’s grown and morphed into basically seven conferences in one. Check out the video and you’ll see what I mean.

Also, If you missed Wednesday night’s “Photoshop World-a-thon” here’s the free Rebroadcast

http://youtu.be/nspMtxVDwhQ

We all showed techniques from some of the classes we’re teaching at the Photoshop World conference (I did a retouching technique, a showed how to create book covers in Lightroom’s Book Module, and I did a live demo of how to set up a remote camera from scratch from my Shooting Sports class).

Everybody had really cool demos (Matt had an awesome one for post processing long exposures), plus we have some special deals (that are good until March 2nd), and the whole thing gives you a great idea of what its like actually being at a Photoshop (the next one’s in Orlando, April 17-19th). You can check out last night’s rebroadcast above.

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Cheers,
– Scott

 

I am excited beyond excited!!! When I got the call from Rob Jones last night that the profits from our t-shirt sales from my Worldwide Photo Walk broke our all-time record and that we had raised $12,000 for the Springs of Hope Orphanage, I about fell out of my chair!

But there’s a little more to the story than just that. While it’s true that we broke our record, (the t-shirt sales by themselves raised $9607.48), Rob wanted to make sure we hit $12,000 so his company “Towner Jones Photography” kicked in an $2392.52 on their own. I am truly touched (but not surprised — this isn’t the first time Rob’s done something like this).

Rob has run the entire t-shirt sale part of the Photo Walk from the very beginning simply out of wanting to help others less fortunate and we are blessed that he saw a need and pitched-in in a big way. Please join me in thanking Rob for the tens of thousands of dollars his efforts have raised for the Springs of Hope Orphanage by leaving him a note here on the blog.

Also, if you didn’t get a chance to get one of the shirts, but want to help the Orphanage, you can make a donation right here. 

My heartfelt thanks to Rob Jones for just being awesome; to my good friend and our Creative Director Felix Nelson for the cool logo he designed for the shirts, and to everyone who bought a shirt to help out the Orphanage. After the past few weeks, I think we all need to celebrate a win of any size, so please join me in thanking Rob, and here’s to small victories that mean a lot. :)

Hi Gang: The keynote will be streamed lived via YouTube.com and our plan is to embed the stream right here on the blog, LIVE today at 9:00 am Pacific Time (Noon East Coast Time US), so check back then and see if we actually got it to work!

Also, you can watch from our Google+ page, so I hope you’ll tune in, just 2-1/2 hours from now (well, from when this was posted anyway).

See you then! :)
