The Zen of Photowalking
When Scott first started the Guest Blog segment he told me that I was going to be on the hook for one in the future. I figured it was no big deal, I mean hey, I blog every day, right? What could be so hard?

Then he started rolling out the parade of superstar personalities that reads like a Who’s Who of the Photography world. I wasn’t really sure how I was going to contribute anything of value after the likes of Vincent Versace, Joe McNally, Moose Peterson, and so on.

Then the other day Scott and I were talking about the plans for his World Wide Photowalk and I knew I finally had my in. Having hosted several photowalks I can say with some confidence that I know my way around these events. With that being said, I thought I would share some of my thoughts on what makes a photowalk so special and how you can maximize your experience when participating in one.

Most photographers have walked, camera in hand, through unfamiliar spaces, shooting their way along their route. So what makes this any different from a photowalk? It’s the social aspect of sharing the experience that makes photowalking so unique. Many of the photowalks that I have hosted were attended by complete strangers but they all had two things in common, a love of photography and a desire to share their passion with like-minded people. I was reminded of this fact during my last photowalk in Georgetown.

Tomorrow’s Special Guest Blogger is…

by   |  0 Comments

…my good friend and the guy who inspired my whole “World Wide Photo Walk” project, Jeff Revell of PhotoWalkPro.com

You’ve heard me talk about Jeff here on the blog numerous times (he came along on my trip to Dubai, and then I tagged along on his trip to Arizona last year, and we’ve been shooting and hanging out for years now). He’s a terrific photographer, a great teacher, and I think with the World Wide photo walk announced this week, it’s a perfect opportunity to have him as my Special Guest Blogger.

Check in tomorrow to see what Jeff has in store for us. :)

Lightroom 2 Vs. My Lightroom 2 “Wish List”

by   |  4 Comments

OK, now that Lightroom 2, the real final version is now shipping, I can really take a look at how the new version stacks up against my dream “wish list” of features from a blog post I did well before the public beta was released.

Did I get everything on my wish list? No, but of course, I never expected to (that’s why it’s called a “wish list” rather than “a list of demands”). ;-)

Now, I was pretty psyched to see a lot of the things on my list did make it into the final shipping version, and of course I was disappointed at the ones I thought for sure would be there but didn’t make the cut.

So, here I’m going to look at what’s hot about about the new Lightroom 2 (and there’s plenty of stuff to be excited about), and what’s not (You knew there was going to be a “what’s not,” right?) Here we go:

On the heels of Adobe’s release of the shipping version of Lightroom 2, we here at NAPP (the National Assn. of Photoshop Professionals) have launched an all new Lighroom 2 Learning Center, with all new videos hosted by me (Scott Kelby) and Lightroom Killer Tips producer Matt Kloskowski.

Matt and I do an overview of what’s new in Lightroom 2, and we also have created separate video segments for each of the major new features (and a special feature on little improvements and cool little tweaks).

Plus, we did a special bonus video there for people who still say “Isn’t Lighroom just a replacement for the Bridge?” or “I already have the Bridge and Camera Raw, why do I need Lightroom?”

You can check out our all new learning center right here!

Well, it is as long as you live in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, or another major U.S. city, as we ramp up for my totally new “Lightroom 2 Live Tour” full-day workshop.

We’ll be releasing the exact dates and cities soon, but just wanted to let you know now, that we’ll be “taking the show on the road” again this year, because we are so excited about all you can do now in Lightroom 2. (I’ve got to admit; with the new features just introduced, this tour sure will be a lot easier on me, and everyone that attends, too!).

Keep an eye here on the blog for a list of cities and dates.

The Lightroom 2 Live Tour is sponsored by: Adobe Systems, CDW, Westcott, OnOne Software, MPIX, Peachpit Press, Layers Magazine, Wacom, NAPP, Canon, iStockPhoto.com, Dell, Corel GraphicAuthority.com, and B&H Photo.
