Here's some quick news bits: Renown landscape photographer Stephen Johnson has a nice interview over at the DIMAcast Podcast. Check out it right here. I mentioned this photography site earlier in the year, but I just went and visited to "A walk through Durham Township" again, and there's lots of wonderful new images. Take a moment to soak in some of this beautiful photography. It'll do ya good. :) Designorati reviewed three Lightroom Books (Rob Sheppard's, Martin Evening's, and mine), and did a  comparison of how the three tackle the topic in different ways. You can read it here. That's it for today, folks. I'm off to Photoshop World next week, and I can't wait to see everybody there! Have a safe, fun Holiday weekend! :)

I'm up in Chicago at the convention center setting up for my Lightroom Day (the photo above taken by my buddy Dave Moser), and it doesn't look like I'll be able to blog today, but I've got some cool stuff for tomorrow. 'm doing some live shoots today during the class, and if I get the chance I'll take a shot of the crowd on hand and post it here. Have a wonderful "Unlikely Blogging" Thursday. :) -Scott

How's that for an official title? Wednesday news stuff. (You can tell when I've run out of ideas). Here's what's going on: I'm on my way to Chicago for my Lightroom Live Tour on Thursday, and I'm really excited. I love teaching this seminar, because I get so much feedback during the day, and after the seminar, about how it's changed so many photographers' workflow for the better. As a teacher, that's incredibly gratifying, (and besides; teaching Lightroom is just plain fun). Also, I'm very fortune to have two experts on hand to help me field questions between sessions; as Lightroom Alpha Tester Jeff Schewe (from, who was instrumental in the development of some of Lightroom's features (in particular, the new sharpening features of version 1.1), will be helping me out, as well as Adobe's own Terry White, an expert on Lightroom (as…

I'm so excited I could burst; my buddy and world class photographer Joe McNally (who's shot for everybody from National Geographic to Sport Illustrated), will be joining me as part of my Lightroom Live Tour in Honolulu, Hawaii this year, on December 3rd at the Hawaii Convention Center. As you might guess, I'll be handing the live shoots I do during the day over to Joe, so the students will get to see a true master at work. I hope you'll get to join me for this incredible opportunity to see a living legend live with me on my Hawaii Tour stop. You can sign up at

I'm honored to announce that educator Rhona Shand, Undergraduate Coordinator and Associate Professor of Art at Pittsburg State University, is the first recipient of the "Bruce Fraser Photoshop World Memorial Scholarship," which was created to honor the memory of beloved Photoshop author and instructor Bruce Fraser, who passed away late last year. Rhona was chosen by Adobe's own Photoshop team to receive the scholarship, which includes her airfare, hotel, and full Photoshop World conference pass (courtesy of NAPP: the National Association of Photoshop Professionals) as a way of honoring Bruce's lifetime legacy of learning. My personal congratulations to Rhona, who'll be attending the Las Vegas Photoshop World Conference next week, for being chosen as the first recipient of the Bruce Fraser scholarship---one dedicated to a man who has meant so much to so many throughout this industry.

Next week, during the opening keynote for the Photoshop World Conference & Expo, our industry will honor two inductees into the Photoshop Hall of Fame: Color management guru, author, and instructor Andrew Rodney (AKA "The Digital Dog"), along with Adobe's Senior Director for Product Management, Professional Digital Imaging Group; Kevin Connor, whose countless contributions to the growth, success, and development of Photoshop have helped guide the application to become the amazing phenomenon it is today. The Photoshop Hall of Fame was founded in 2001 to honor those individuals whose contributions to the art, business, and development of Adobe Photoshop have enduring value. It's an honor to recognize Andrew and Kevin, and to add their names to the Photoshop World Hall of Fame trophy alongside some of our industry's most valued, respected, and bevolved individuals. My sincere congratulations to both Andrew and Kevin on your…
