  • Last week Apple released a major update to Aperture, their image workflow application, and the new update includes more than 100 new features, tweaks, and enhancements, including support for the latest cameras from Nikon, Canon, and Sony. The update includes major user-requested improvements to the interface, and to the overall speed of the program, especially in viewing thumbnail images. I haven't had a chance to play with the new version yet, (I hope to this week), but the improvements look pretty substantial and the initial feedback I've seen from existing Aperture users has been very positive. You can see a list of all the new features in version 2, by clicking this link.

    I've got a bunch of book news, so I thought I'd put it all in one quick post, so here goes: Joe McNally's landmark book, "The Moment it Clicks" is already sold out just about everywhere, and the publisher has already gone back to press for a 2nd printing to print another 25,000 copies, so if you want to get yours as soon as they're available, preorder yours now at Amazon.com or Barnes&Noble.com. Congrats to Joe for creating the most highly acclaimed photography book in years! Note: Here's a recent review on Joe's book from Michael Clark Photography [link], and an in-depth review from David duChemin at the PixelatedImage blog. On Saturday I saw one of the first copies off press of Matt Kloskowski's new book, "Layers: The Complete Guide to Photoshop's Most Powerful Feature" and it came out just beautifully (some of the…

    Hi everybody. I've been in Vegas all this week, first for some business, then I took a few days off with my wife and some friends to just hang out and see some shows (saw Cirque du Soleil's "Love" show Wed. night, featuring the music of The Beatles and it was just unbelievable!!! My favorite Cirque show ever!). Now, I'm back, and here's whaz up: I've been working with Nik Software's brand new Viveza plug-in for Photoshop, which brings the U-point technology used in Nikon's popular Capture NX to Photoshop, and I have to say; it's freakin' incredible! In fact, so much so, that it's getting my "Scott Thinks It's Hot" award, given only to absolutely kick-butt products! The plug-in has a great user interface, pretty snappy performance, and it's so fast and easy to use, that it's going to become a part of…

    When you've been writing news every Thursday since 2005, sometimes you just have to call it something other than just the "Thursday News," so since it's Valentine's Day I came up with this name, which includes just a hint of French (the international language of love. Hey, my first thought was to call it "Thursday News Pellets," which makes "Industry Communiqué" sound totally palatable now, doesn't it)? Here goes (remember, this is for just for Lover's----backwards skating only!): On February 28th I'll be over in Dallas, Texas teaching (on behalf of Nikon), at the annual International Symposium for Aerial Photography (ISAP). This is my 2nd time speaking for this group, and it is just a blast. Beside being just a great group to present to; their photography (which was on display at the event) is simply breathtaking. For more info on the International Society…

    OK, I just found out why the show didn't air last night, but I actually have good news. Here's how it was explained to me: "A 24 hour period of 5am to 5am is a day of programming for them.  So when they said 1:30am on Wednesday it actually falls on Thursday at 1:30am which is still in the Wednesday block of time for their scheduling. Which means our show airs on Thursday at 1:30am." So..........we'll all be keeping our fingers crossed to see if it actually airs tonight. If it doesn't air, be sure to stop back by tomorrow to see what level of humiliation I've actually achieved. ;-)   See you then!

    Jeff Revell over at PhotoWalkPro had a post last week that left me speechless. It was a series of ads for the Cape Times newspaper (in Cape Town, South Africa) that showed photos taken the day before tragic losses of human life. The one above, from that series, has the caption, September 10, 2001 (I'm showing it here in US date format). The series had a number of different images, and it's worth taking a moment to see these powerful images and what they represent. Kudos to Jeff for uncovering this (here's the direct link).
