  • Every once in a while you come across a workshop you'd just love to attend, and for me, one of these is Jim Divitale and Helene Glassman's 3-day hands-on digital imaging workshop coming up July 28-30th, 2008 at Jim's studio in Atlanta. If you've ever been to Photoshop World (where Jim and Helene are featured instructors), you already know what amazing teachers they are (Jim has been one of our featured photographers for the past 15 or more Photoshop World's in a row!). If you've read my book, The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers, then you know already know Jim, because he's referenced throughout the book, and in the acknowledgments, as one of the people who help me come up with the initial outlines, concepts, and even some of the techniques themselves. If you've read my book, The Digital Photography Book, Vol. 1 or…

    I recently did a location shoot at a recording studio for a project being developed by the Korg Keyboard company, for a very cool new accessory for keyboard players that lets you apply a "skin" to your keyboards. (You can see the blue image "skin" on the Korg M3 Music Workstation/Sampler above---the keyboard is normally just solid white--click on it for a larger view. The model is musician Justin Finley). This is bigger than it might first sound. Although guitar players and bass players have always had a wide choice of finishes and patterns for their guitar bodies, and drummers have had everything from sparkle finishes to wood grains to even clear shells; keyboard players have pretty much had one look; solid black. More recently, white. That's about it. The idea of skinning keyboards is the brainchild of John Chase over at Korg, and…

    Yesterday was Jeff Revell's (of PhotoWalkPro.com fame) GeorgeTown Photo Walk and over 50 photographers showed up to spend a couple of hours shooting the tony streets, shops, and cafes of this DC suburb. The photo above (by Jeff) shows some of the "walkers" during the day, reflected in a round overhead mirror. Make sure you check out PhotoWalkPro for more photos from the day. Congratulations to Jeff for another great "walk," and "Good on ya" to everybody who showed up on a beautiful day in DC to share some fun and photography for a few hours (and of course, some yummy Philly cheesesteaks right after the walk).

    So, Terry White and I on the phone talking about yesterday's post, and more specifically about how software is really developed today---all software, whether it comes from Apple or Microsoft or whomever. Terry had the perfect analogy to describe how it is from our, the end users, perspective: So you've been waiting for this new restaurant to open for 12 to 18 months, and when it finally opens you head right down there. They seat you and hand you a menu with all these great dishes on it, but after a few minutes, they come and take the menu out of your hands and set down your food. You ask the waiter, "What's this?" He says, "This is your dinner." And you say, "But I didn't order this," and he says "We decided this is what you want." So, you go ahead and taste…

    Here's a few nuggets to take us into the weekend: Don't forget: This Sunday (June 1st) is Jeff Revell's Georgetown Photo Walk (held in the Georgetown area of Washington DC), and everyone's invited to join Jeff and company for this social shooting event. The walk lasts two hours (starting at 10:00 am), and afterward (in a fine PhotoWalk tradition), everyone meets up a local restaurant to hang out, do some chimping, and catch a yummy lunch. Check out PhotoWalkPro.com for all the details (don't be one of those folks who on Monday say, "Aw man---I shudda gone!") My buddy, and Photoshop User TV co-host Matt Kloskowski is teaching a free class in Philly next Tuesday, June 3rd at the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott, as part of the Creative Suite Symposium, (Sponsored by CDW and Adobe Systems). There are morning, lunch, and afternoon sessions (Matt's teaching…

    Every time a new version of Photoshop or Lightroom comes out, we (the community of users) get a number of features that make our lives more fun, or make us more productive, or sometimes both. But, of course, every time a new version of either one comes out, there are always those cries of "Why didn't Adobe add [fill in the blank]" or, "I can't believe we still don't have [fill in the blank]." Unfortunately (for me anyway), I'm usually one of the ones whining the loudest about a feature that didn't make it, or a feature that was changed (which is why Adobe often cringes when I call). But my buddy Terry White and I were talking recently, and Terry floated an idea that I honestly believe would change all this, and finally give us exactly what we want in the next versions…
