  • Greetings, once again from the Frankfurt Airport----I'm between flights again, but now I'm on my way back home. This was an eye-opening trip for me in so many ways (which I kind of expected), but what I didn't expect was how it would change my mind about how I shoot going forward. In a post earlier this week, I made a joke how this was the trip where I always had the wrong lens at the wrong time, but it wasn't a joke---it was the one thing that marred an otherwise amazing experience. The shot above (taken moments ago by Jeff Revell ) shows the inside of the LowePro Backpack camera bag I took with me (It's an older model---I'm not even sure which one, but Jeff Revell had a newer LowePro backpack I like better). Here's a quick tour of the bag (From…

    Here's a shot I took from the beach at dusk last night, right when the Burj Al Arab hotel's beautiful exterior lighting came on (the hotel itself is the world's tallest, at just over 1,050 feet tall). For the first few minutes, they did a little light show (complete with white sweeping search lights on the heli-pad ), where it displayed a number of different solid colors on the front of the hotel (as shown below), but then for just a few moments it showed this multi-color look and I kept firing until it went away and returned to solid red for the next 15 to 20 minutes. By then it was getting so dark, I had to pack it in. To me, the photos almost look like an illustration----more like a 3D rendering rather than a photo, which is kind of weird, but…

    Hi gang. Here's a quick "howdy" from amazing Dubai. The shots above are from my Photoshop session at the Adobe Design Conference Dubai, earlier today (photos by Serge). I have to say; it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The people here in Dubai are incredibly gracious, fun, and kind, and they were a terrific crowd to present to. I was surprised, and totally tickled, to see how many people brought in their books for me to sign, and I was jazzed to meet both NAPP members from Dubai, and people who watch Photoshop User TV. They really made me feel at a home here, and Adobe put on just an outstanding conference for the attendees, and everybody I talked with was just loving the conference. Thanks to Adobe for having me speak, and thanks to the warm people of Dubai for their wonderful hospitality.…

    My buddy Jeff Revell brought a Nikon D-70 which had been converted to Infrared, and we had a lot of fun shooting with it today as we went around for 8 hours and got acqainted with the city. We have a dawn shoot scheduled for about 3 1/2 hours from now, then I've got my class to teach this afternoon, so I'd better hit the hay. The shot above, with the world's tallest hotel in the background---(the iconic 7-star Burj Al Arab hotel) was taken with Jeff's Infrared D-70, using a Nikon 24-70mm lens (click on it for a larger view). Jeff got a killer infrared shot of these cool horse sculptures which were just a few feet behind where I took this shot (here's the link to Jeff's site). I've gotta run, but I did want to let you know that Dubai is…

    Greetings from Frankfurt, Germany (well, greetings from the Frankfurt airport anyway, where I'm in between flights). I'm here with my brother Jeff, and my buddy Jeff Revell (of PhotoWalkPro fame), in route to Dubai, and I saw a number of comments about my post yesterday, so today I thought I'd answer a few, and post the photo above from the shoot. When I started this series of shots, I did have a silver 30" reflector just off camera to the left, but I thought it brightened the shadows too much (I could see really clearly because I was shooting tethered into Lightroom), so after just a few shots, we put down the reflector and just let the shadows add a little drama on the left side of her face. Her hair is nicely backlit from the natural light coming in from the windows you…

    Here's a shot (top) taken after a location shoot set up by my buddy Dave Cuerdon this past Monday (that's me on the left, then our wonderful model Marliese, that's David in the middle, and our award-winning Make Up Artist and Stylist Lisa, who also happens to be Dave's wife. The shoot was in an old abandoned Ice Factory, and in the shot of Marliese shown directly above, I used just a single Nikon SB-800 off-camera flash on a lightstand shooting through an umbrella to diffuse the light, set to the right of my camera and positioned close to her, but about a foot or so above her head, aiming down at her (as I said during my Lighting Gear week; if I'm going to use an umbrella, I want to be shooting through it---otherwise it acts more like a light grenade). The advantage…
