OK, I’m Kinda Psyched
I mentioned earlier in the week that I had shot the Honda Grand Prix Indy Race on assignment for wire service Southcreek Global Media, but I was totally psyched when I saw that one of the Indy Car images I shot that day was featured on their Home Page in their “Recent Coverages” section (as seen above). Hey, it’s a start. :)

Neutral Day Reviews My Photo Recipes DVD/Book Combo
I just found this in-depth review of my Photo Recipes “Behind the Scenes” DVD, and while they say “it’s not for everybody” they do a really good job of explaining who it is for and why. Here’s the link. In semi-related news; I just heard from my publisher, and this combo has been such a success, it’s going into its second printing, so if it’s out-of-stock at your local or online bookstore, they’ll have new stock soon.

I learned of Brian’s work through a blog post on Seth Godin’s blog, and his stuff totally rocks. If you want to be inspired going into the weekend, click right here.
David Ziser captures “Big Electric Cat” stills & video with his Canon 7D
“Big Electric Cat” (featuring Kalebra, Felix Nelson, Tony Llanes, Scott Stahley, and yours truly) played a gig at the Photoshop World Attendee party at B.B. King’s Bar & Grill, and photographer and author David Ziser was there taking photos and video with his new 7D, and then he used Animoto to combine the two seamlessly into one video slidesshow, and it really came out pretty cool. Here’s the link to watch it online over at David’s “Digital Pro Talk” blog.
Seth’s new “Fire & Ice” Workshop in Iceland Sounds Amazing!
If you’re into shooting extreme nature, and want to do it with a fantastic photographer/instructor, check out Seth Resnick’s “Fire & Ice” Workshop coming up April 28th to May 4th in Iceland, as part of the Focus on Nature Int’l Photography workshops. Here’s how they describe it: “The majority of the workshop will be spent shooting the dramatic volcano eruption in the south of Iceland and the neighboring area. Also the icebergs on the glacier lagoon on the south-east coast. Finally ice caves if approachable.” Wow!!!! Here’s where to go for all the details.
The iPad’s Here on Monday and….
…..I’m waiting for the Wi-Fi + 3G model, which I already ordered, but I’m going to Best Buy this weekend just to check one out. From what I hear, the App’s are just amazing. Can’t wait (but I’ll have to—-until the end of the month. Ugh!).
Have a great weekend!
Hope you guys have a great one, and I hope to see you back here on Monday. :)
