Last night to celebrate the launch of my latest book, ‘The Travel Photography Book’ I did a live Webcast packed with travel photography tips, along with a deal from my publisher that is truly mind-blowing – 50% off on the print edition of the book (that makes it only $15 for a brand new book, which is just crazy – and they are honoring that deal until Midnight tonight Pacific time. Here’s the link to order your copy).

Anyway, the live Webcast was a ton of fun, and I shared lots of travel photography tips; you can watch it right here (below).

Hope you find those tips helpful (and I would love it if you would spread the word about this incredible 1-day only deal from Rockynook (my book’s publisher). Here’s that link again, ya know…just in case. :)

Have a great weekend, everybody! :)

P.S. A big thank you to everyone here who attended our Lightroom Conference. We had a STELLAR turnout, and we had such a great group of photographers with us all three days – there was a great vibe throughout; lots of new stuff to learn, and it went incredibly smoothly – a tip of the hat for all the hard work of our production team behind the scenes – they are the best

Amazon fulfilled all the pre-orders, and then they were out of stock for a while, but now thankfully the print edition is back in stock. All the new Masking stuff is in the edition, and lots of other important new stuff, updates, and improvements (it’s my biggest update for the book in years). 

Check out the trailer below for more details on the new edition: 

Here’s the link to pick up a copy (perfect to get with that Amazon gift card you got for Christmas) or for a friend (idea gift), or just because you’re loose with money. You can also pick it up at Barnes & Noble (love B&H), right here. 

Here’s wishing you an absolutely kick-butt week, full of Lightroom learnin’.

P.S. Excited that the Bucs won their playoff game yesterday – we play the winner of tonight’s Cardinals/Rams game next week (GoCards!). 

We actually launched the book last night with a live “Book Chat” (now kind of a tradition) where I talked about the book, how it works, and revealed the basis of “The System” through a series of tutorials, and I’m embedded the whole book chat below, in case you’ve got a chance to check it out.

These Book Chats are fun and very informal, but there’s a lot of cool Lightroom stuff, too. My publisher literally gave 50% deals on the book (in print or ebook or both), and the deals are good all week (here’s the link).

You can also order it direct from Barnes & Noble, or Amazon.com

Thanks for giving that a look — hope you found it helpful. Have a great weekend everybody, and we’ll catch ya next week. :)

PROGRAMMING ALERT: The iPhone Photography Conference starts tomorrow and runs for two full days and if you want to join the 1,000+ photographers from all over the world who will be spending the next two days learn how to take seriously great photos with your iPhone, it’s not to late to join in. Here’s the link to get your tickets (it’s two full days, two separate training tracks, and it’s all online —  plus you get a full year’s access to the archives of the conference to catch any sessions you missed or want to rewatch). Today we’re doing an orientation class and then I’m doing a class on “What makes a great photograph” — again — not too late to join us even today! :)

OK, I’m back from vacation, refreshed and ready to hit the ground running!

This new book on Macro photography is special

As a guy who writes books on photography, this is one I wish I had written — it’s an incredible new book on Macro photography from Canadian photographer and Macro shooting guru, Don Komarechka.

During my week off I got to spend some time with this book and he did a really incredible job from top to bottom. It’s an educational book that almost feels like a coffee table book, because it has so many big beautiful macro images, including some really unique stuff that you’re probably not going to learn about anywhere else. It’s like the book has one foot in the classroom and the other in an art gallery.

Sharing just a few pages here does nearly do the book justice (and it’s so detailed, I just cannot imagine how long it must have taken to put this together. You can tell Don really put his heart and soul into it.

You can pick up a copy of Don’s wonderful book (it would make a great gift) right here. My congrats to Don for a job well done — from one author to another, Don you knocked this one out of the park!

Glad to be back with you – thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to catch “Travel Tuesday’s with Dave” tomorrow right here. :)
