  • If my childhood exposure to Star Trek taught me anything it's that you can't mess with the time/space continuum without seriously screwing things up for everyone. Still, the reckless part of me would love to go back and have a heart-to-heart with the fourteen year-old version of myself as I fell in love with photography and began what has been a 23-year passion. Last weekend thousands of photographers converged around the world to walk and shoot, most of them hobbyists still aflame with an enthusiasm for their craft that would humble many professionals. It reminded me of those early days, made me a little nostalgic. Still, if I could go back, give the young me some encouragement and direction, these are the things that I suspect would be foremost in our conversation. We'd probably also have an awkward chat about dating, but that's between…

    My original goal was to try and sell 100 books, which would have meant $4,499 would go directly to the building of the orphanage, but I just got the final tally from yesterday sales and you guys bought 236 books, which raised $10,617.64 to help build the orphanage. Amazing!!!! I'm humbled by your generosity and compassion, and I was so touched by some of the comments you guys posted yesterday, like: I am getting it shipped to Scotland, which took the price up to $65.99 - but it is worth it (and that is before I have even read the book!!) I already have the book on order with Kelby Training so I’ve mailed a check directly to CMCC today. I don’t use Lightroom (yet!) but I’ve ordered a copy anyway. Well, I just bought the book and I don’t even have Lightroom. I…

    Yesterday, when my book publisher Peachpit Press, heard about what we were doing to help build the orphanage in Kenya, and that my goal was to sell 100 of my Lightroom 2 books, they immediately called to donate (you guessed it), One Hundred Books! I've written over 50 books with Peachpit Press and their New Riders imprint, and I've never worked with anyone else all these years. Today you just saw another reason why. My heartfelt thanks to Peachpit Publisher Nancy Aldrich-Ruenzel, my Editor Ted Waitt, Scott Cowlin, Glenn Bisignani, and the entire Peachpit/New Riders team. I've never been prouder to be one of your authors than I am today. :)

    ...none other than the brilliant photographer and author behind the popular "Pixelated Image" photography blog (link), my friend David duChemin. Before I ever met David, I fell in love with his photography; his use of color, texture, and the way he captures the human spirit, just really captivated me, and tomorrow I'm honored to have him as my special guest blogger. If you've got a few moments, jump over to his site and check out some of his photography. It's a great way to celebrate the wonderful things that have happened these past few days. Then be sure to check back tomorrow for his post.
