Thursday News Stuff
Atlanta Was Awesome!!!
I want to start by thanking all the photographers (over 600 of you), that came out to my Atlanta “Photoshop CS5 for Digital Photographers” Seminar last Friday (that’s blog regular Ken Toney posing with me above in an iPhone photo during one of the breaks between classes). We had such a great crowd that day—everybody was totally engaged, and into it and we really had just an awful lot of fun while we were learning, and I can’t thank you all enough for coming out to spend the day with me.
While I was there, on Thursday I got to shoot at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art, at their “The Allure of the Automobile” exhibit (these cars from the 40s and 50s were like works of art on wheels), and then that night, I got to shoot Maggie Smith in concert at the Hard Rock Cafe. Totally fun (and more on both of these shoots in the coming weeks).
Larry Rocked It (and I totally messed up)
I want to thank my buddy Larry Becker for a terrific, and very inspirational Guest Blog post yesterday, and at the same time, I want to apologize to Larry for doing two posts that walked on his Guest Blog. That day is pretty sacred around here, and reserved just for the Guest Blogger (it’s their day to do what they will), but I had completely lost track of the days, and thought that yesterday was going to be Tuesday, so I wrote two blog posts (thinking it was Tuesday). Totally my fault (apparently that being closed on Monday thing, really threw me for a loop), and I’m so sorry for getting in the way of great Guest Blog spot. Hope you’ll forgive me, Larry.
The New Episode of D-Town TV is Live
Although it went up crazy late, it did finally get posted this weekend, and this episode is packed with stuff, including a studio shoot, more location shooting with Matt, a great tip for shooting with fast glass from top wedding photographer Cliff Mauntner, plus Cheap Shots with Larry Becker, and a whole bunch more. Here’s the link.
Kick Butt iPhone App for Photographers: Plastic Bullet
A friend turned me on to this iPhone app for photographers called “Plastic Bullet” and I have to tell you—-I’m hooked. You take the shot, and it transforms your photo in a very creative and fun way. Here’s how they describe it: “Plastic Bullet puts the fun, spontaneity, and unpredictability of plastic-fantastic toy cameras right into your pocket. Just tap to turn your photos into gloriously unpredictable works of art, then tap again to change the look.” However, I have to say, it’s actually a lot more fun (and the photos look a lot better) than that description (check out their samples here). I kept tapping and coming up with more new looks. You’ll totally love it, and it’s only $2 bucks! (Here’s the link).
That’s it for today!
Hope you guys have a great Thursday, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow! :)
