Tuesday News Nuggets

Happy Tuesday everybody! Here’s what’s goin’ on:

cep3_mainhead.jpgIf you’re thinking of buying any Nik Software stuff this Holiday Season, here’s a way to save some money. Moose Peterson (over at Moose’s News Blog), got Nik to give his readers a 10% discount of any Nik software purchases (like Dfine 2.0, Nik Color Efex 3.0, Nik Sharper Pro 2.0), by enter a special “Moose and friends” discount code (which Moose reveals on his blog). Anyway, here’s the link to Moose’s blog, with a link, and the discount code. Thanks to Moose for letting my readers get in on your deal. You’re not a bad egg. ;-)

  • You all have heard me talk (rave, exclaim, carry on, etc.) about Really Right Stuff’s L-brackets (which let you switch from shooting portrait to landscape in just seconds. Well, they finally put together a video demo to show how it works. Here’s the link.
  • This has nothing to do with Photoshop or photography, just an observation—but I was in the Apple Store last week, and it was (as always) just absolutely packed with shoppers. But what really struck me was how many employees were there assisting people. It seemed like there was one employee for every two people (and there were like 70 or 80 people in the store at the time). I’m not complaining; it’s a good thing, but it’s just kind of wild to see that many employees in a store that size. Keep an eye out next time you’re in the Apple store. It’s like the deck of a Starship.
  • Last week I mentioned that Sean Duggan is doing a black and white workshop at the Lepp Institute, but I forget to mention that NAPP members get a discount on any classes they take from the Lepp Institute. Not bad, eh?
  • I found this recent review of my Photoshop Seven-Point-System book, complete with Pros and Cons about the book. Here’s the link.
  • If you’re into Food Photography, I found a pretty cool flickr group dedicated to just that. You’ll find it right here.

That’s it for today. I’m in the studio shooting and working on stuff today. I’ve got some Big News for tomorrow, so I hope you’ll check back in then.
