Monday News Blast-a-Roonie
Hi everybody. Lots of stuff’s been piling up during the past week or so, so here we go:
New Podcast from Rick Sammon
I just learned that our buddy Rick Sammon has launched a new radio Podcast called “The Digital Photo Experience” which he co-hosts with Juan Pons. The first episode was just released on iTunes (the Podcast is free), and it’s already playing to rave reviews (his average rating is five-stars), so if you’ve got a second, check it out (here’s the link—you can listen right within iTunes, and subscribe for free so you don’t miss another episode).
Shuttle Shots from Scott Diussa
Friend of the blog (and Photoshop World instructor) Scott Diussa, posted some very cool images from the recent Space Shuttle launch taken by remote. They’re pretty sweet, so if you’ve got a minute, check them out right here on his blog. (Also don’t miss his shots of how the remote cameras looked after the launch).
David Ziser’s “Wedding Photography: Rapid Fire Tips & Tricks”
Master wedding photographer and brilliant instructor David Ziser is back with a brand new rapid-fire collection of some the must useful tips he’s picked-up during his 25-year career shooting weddings around the world. The class just went “live” last week at Kelby Training Online, and people are already talking about it. Here’s the link with more details (or to watch it online).
Thanks to the Geeks!
Just a quick word of thanks to UK-based RegHardware—the folks behind the “Geeks Guide2 Christmas Guide, Part I,” who included my new book, “The Digital Photography Book, Volume 3” in their guide this year. Here’s the link.
Photoshop User TV—-Tweaked for Episode II
Tomorrow the 2nd episode from the new season of Photoshop User TV goes live (I’ll try to run it here on the blog tomorrow if possible), and we did tweak the show a bit. After watching it, we felt pretty much the same way you guys did—-shorter and more content is better, but we lost some of what made the show what it was, so it’s still short and sweet, but not so rushed and with a little more “us” in it than the first episode. Hope you guys like the tweaks (and look for it here tomorrow, with any luck).
Volumes 1, 2, and 3 reviewed at “Learning to See the Light”
I just ran across this in-depth review of my three-volume set of, “The Digital Photography Books, Volumes 1, 2, & 3” over at the “Learning to See The Light” blog. Here’s the link to check it out.
Where are The Deals You Talked About on Friday?
OK, apparently I was one of the last people on earth to realize that today is Cyber Monday (by the way—the term “Cyber” as in “Cyberspace” is just about as dated as “Super Information Highway”), but although I’m one of the last to learn about that, apparently I am absolutely the last one to know exactly which deals my company is planning on running today as part of “Cyber Monday,” so….maybe at some point today they’ll let me know. Hey—the good news is—we may have some job openings very soon at NAPP. ;-)
That’s it for “Cyber Monday”
Have a great day as you “Surf The Web” (Sorry, that’s the only other related phrase I could think of that is as dated as “Cyber”).
