Web-based version of Photoshop coming!

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

Yesterday, CNET reported that Adobe’s CEO Bruce Chizen noted that a free Web-based version of Photoshop would be released this later this year, and that Adobe would make money off it by selling Web advertising (ala Google). Apparently, this version won’t have the full feature set of either Photoshop CS3 or Elements 5, but will be a special version created just for the Web. Either way; I gotta tell ya—I didn’t see this one coming.

Images from the Industry: Dan “Dano” Steinhardt interviewed in Double Exposure

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments


Double Exposure is running a great interview with Dan Steinhardt (we all know him as “Dano”), who is Epson’s Marketing Manager for their pro products, but beyond the interview are his images. I’ve been a fan of Dan’s photography ever since he showed me some of his recent shots on the screen of an Epson P-4000 over dinner. He shoots a particular style that I just love (I’ve always called it Urban photography or City Life, but I’m sure there’s an official name for it), but anyway, his stuff just really speaks to me. I love his sense of color, his treatment of architecture, and how he blends people and their stories into these surroundings.

So, first I’m going to send you to his online gallery, and then to the interview, because although there’s a link to a sample of his work at the top of the interview page, but I think his own gallery gives you a much better feel for what Dano shoots.

His Web site is at Digital Railroad
and the interview is at Double Exposure.com

Make sure you check out both (hopefully in that order). :)

Cool Stuff: The Japanese version of Apple’s Mac vs. PC TV ads

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments


This doesn’t have a stinkin’ thing to do with Photoshop, but you’ve just got to go and watch this: http://www.apple.com/jp/getamac/

It’s the Japanese version of Apple’s popular “I’m a Mac/I’m a PC” TV ad campaign, and although you might not be able to understand a word of Japanese, you’ll still get a kick out of the ads. In fact, you might laugh more than you do at the US versions. :)

From Last Night’s Shoot

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

I took this shot last night (click for the larger version) using 2 Nikon SB-800 flash units: The first was mounted on a Bogen light stand, with a Justin Clamp on top to hold the flash. This SB-800 was fired thru a Lastolite 33″ 1-stop tri-grip diffusion panel to soften and spread the light. The second flash was placed on the floor to the right of the subject using the tiny stand that comes with the SB-800, (the subject is John Graden, one of the best known names in the martial arts industry. He needed the shot for an upcoming article about him in a British martial arts magazine). It was taken with a Nikon D-200, with the SB-800 set to wireless remote, so I could control the power of each individual flash from the camera itself.

How Does He Do It? In Camera or In Photoshop?

by Scott Kelby  |  1 Comments

I ran across Patrick Hoelck’s brilliant photography portfolio after I saw it discussed (OK, debated) in an online forum (I wish I could remember which one). I really, really like his style, but beyond his cool photography, what peaked my interest was how the forum participants were arguing back and forth about whether his “look” comes from his technique in camera, or after the fact in Photshop. Now, as a guy who really loves Photoshop, I have great respect for him either way (because digital photography in the 21st century is two things; the photography and the processing in Photoshop), so if he’s getting this look in Photoshop, all I can say is “Please teach it to me!” If he’s doing it all with lighting (as apparently he is quoted in a magazine article), then all I can say is “Please teach it to me!” Either way; take a look at his cool images and see what you think (and post your comments as to whether you think it’s mostly done: “In the Lighting” or “Later In Photoshop”).
