  • Since I mentioned the Elinchrom Octabank in my New York Studio Post two weeks ago (and in my shots of Photoshop User News anchor Stephanie Cross), I've had a steady stream of emails and posts asking questions about it, so I thought I'd go into a little detail on a rig I use. The Octa Light Bank (which is it's more formal name), that I use is actually three parts: An Elinchrom Ranger Battery Pack (it's important to get this battery pack, so your Octa isn't stuck in your studio, so you can use it for on location lighting gigs). An Elinchrom Free Light S Flash Head (which comes as part of the "Ranger Kit" so you get the battery pack and flash head together) A Free Light S Flash Head, which mounts inside the very large 74" (diameter) Elinchrom Octabank softbox, and it…

    On Saturday I flew down to Miami to shoot the Ford 300 (Part of the NASCAR Busch Series) with my buddy (and fellow Photoshop World instructor) Joe Glyda, and race photographer Mark Allias (the photo of Joe and I above was taken by Mark). It was just a beautiful day, with absolutely gorgeous weather, we had "All Access" media passes, so we could pretty much shoot from anywhere (and we did), and we just had a ball. The track shots shown above were taken with my Nikon D2Xs using a Nikon 200-400m f/4 VR lens (from LensProToGo), supported with a Gitzo GM-3550 Mountainer 6X Carbon Fiber monopod (which is marvelous, by the way), and the shots in the Pits were taken with a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR lens. NOTE: most of the shots with the 200-400mm were taken in the D2Xs' High Speed Crop…

    Adobe today announced a bunch of great updates to all kinds of software including Photoshop CS3, Photoshop Lightroom, Camera Raw, Bridge, and the DNG Converter. Here’s what the NAPP members home page says: In a recent rush of activity by Adobe engineers, there are several major updates to software from our friends at Adobe. Photoshop Lightroom has been updated to version 1.3 to improve Mac OS 10.5 Leopard compatibility, Camera Raw now supports some of the latest cutting edge cameras, and Photoshop CS3 Sports the new version number 10.0.1 to knock out quite a few small but annoying compatibility issues for both Mac and PC users. Oh yeah, and remember our old friend Bridge CS3? Well it’s up to v2.1.1 and sports a cool new HQ preview in the Advanced panel as well as some important little maintenance issues. If you’re a NAPP member…

    Wednesday night I was a guest on Shawn King's excellent "Your Mac Life" radio show, and of course, we talked about my Photoshop 7-point-system (Shawn had lots of in-depth questions about it), but I think it was some of the other things Shawn asked that made it one of my most revealing interviews yet. Shawn touched on everything from whether I do paid endorsements for products, to questions about Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen stepping down and Adobe's future, to questions about my start in this business (and my film-shooting days), including the real reason I decided to publish a magazine 10 years ago, to how people react to my quirky sense of humor (or lack thereof), to a talk about Adobe making a version of Photoshop available online. You can listen to the interview right on their web site by clicking right here.
