    I’m officially nervous. Guest blog for Scott Kelby? Hmmmm. Okay, why be nervous? I’ll just go ahead and pretend I’m writing for my blog. No problem, just type away. But here’s the deal. Scott’s blog is Broadway, man; lights, limos, red carpet, strobes flashing, throngs of swells mingling by the thousands!

    My blog is community theater in Piscataway. (Apologies to theater goers in Piscataway… I probably couldn’t open there, either.)

    Scott’s is also a very forward looking blog. Thoughts, notions, products, gear, philosophy, approach… so much of it is about what is happening now, or about to happen, in our industry. It’s pretty cool, and it’s a must read way station for all those trying to stay afloat in the fast moving digital rapids. Scott, in short, is on top of it all.

    So this is quite an honor, to be sure. It got me to thinking, here in my cave, Mac firmly gripped in my paws, looking for the “on” button, about what got me here. The simple answer is that I’ve been a photographer for 30 years. Lots of jobs, peaks, valleys, nicks, cuts and bruises, bad pictures, some good ones, crazy jobs, lousy hotels, bumpy flights, missed connections, and, like a battered suitcase, I tumbled off the baggage belt, here.

    A career in photography is a journey without a destination. No idea where the road goes. But I have a notion about where it started, and from the panoramic future gazing promontory known as Photoshop Insider, I thought I’d look, like, backwards. (Threw the “like” in there. I’ve got a teenage daughter.)

    Back to the work that has gone before. Not that I’m disinterested in current work. There’s a ton of great work being done, from the battlefield shooters of Iraq to the Hollywood gang filling the glossy pages of Vanity Fair. But for now, I’m talking about work that…

    Friday's post about backing up your computer really struck a chord with a lot of readers, and I got a number of comments, and emails, asking if I would share my back-up strategy (which drives I use, how and when I back-up, etc.), so....here we go! 1. Backing Up My Photos On-Location You only have to have a memory card fail once to become a freak about backing up your photos on location, so I might sound a little overly cautious, but its only because I've been burned. Here's what I do: Once I fill a memory card (and by the way; I don't shoot until every last shot is used because of card-corruption horror stories I've heard, so I stop one or two short of how many how camera says I have left), I pop the card out of my camera into an…

    This morning, Epson announced the replacement for my all-time favorite 13″x19″ printer (the R2400, which still sits proudly on my desk, though probably not for long), with their new Epson Stylus Photo R2880 printer, which takes advantage of Epson’s UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta ink technology, and a high-performance print head. It’s anticipated street price is $799.

    You can read about all the new features in Epson’s Press Release, on the next page…

    Today is Memorial Day in the US, and our offices are closed as we honor and remember those who gave their lives in service to our country. This post is dedicated to the memory of David Leimbach, (brother of our own Jeff Leimbach), who I just learned this morning, had died yesterday in combat in Afghanistan. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jeff and his family. If you've got a moment, visit WeeklyPhotoTips.com who put together a special Memorial Day slideshow with photos submitted by their readers (here's the link). I'll be back tomorrow, and I look forward to seeing you all then. -Scott

    Our head of IT at Kelby Media Group is a guy named Paul Wilder. He's one of those guys who has that whole "super-giant uber brain" thing going on, but besides his immense IT skills, he's really a terrific guy all around (We love Paul!). In fact, he's so great that he allowed me to share a personal story and while it might be a bit embarrassing for an IT guy like Paul, he felt it was more important to share the story to help other folks avoid a similar nightmare. Paul's constantly hounding us all the time to make sure our computers are backed up, and he's got all sorts of sophisticated back-up systems in place at our headquarters for our servers and such, but like the plumber whose own pipes are leaky, he didn't have a backup for his home computer. You…

    I'm really excited to announce that we're just about 10 days away from the release of my brand new book, "The Mac OS X Leopard Book (Published by Peachpit Press). I took the same layout, feel, and writing style of my book, The Digital Photography Book, and applied that same concept to teaching people how to do the things they really want to do with their Macs. Like "The Digital Photography Book," I explain everything the same way I would to a friend, so there's no techno-geek-speak----it's just you and me, and I tell you, short and sweet how to do all those things you bought your Mac for in the first place. I really wrote for the book for all the new Mac users out there, who just want somebody to tell them, "Look, here's what ya do." So, the book's not aimed…
