Update: The webcast is full. If we’re able to add more people I’ll make sure to post it here. Sorry… I’ll be doing another one with them soon though and I’ll keep you posted.
The folks over at onOne Software have asked me to host another webcast on using Lightroom 5 with the Perfect Photo Suite. During the webcast, I’ll cover the Lightroom workflow, as well as what I do to my photos afterward in Photoshop and the Perfect Photo Suite. The webcast starts at 12pm ET. Space is limited and they’ve filled up before so make sure sign up and get in early. Here’s the link. Hope to see you later today!
I just went by onOne Software’s website and noticed that they have a summer special going on right now where you get 50% off of any plug-in. With all of the plug-in craze and changes lately, I’ve really come to stand by the plug-ins from onOne. For me, as a Lightroom user, they’re doing it right. They’re taking all of the things that photographers want to do outside of Lightroom, and putting them together in one place so you can get the job done without jumping in to a bunch of different programs and windows. Plus, the interface is so similar to Lightroom that you feel like you’re in the same program. The two I find I use the most are Perfect Effects and Perfect Black & White (which for me has become the new standard for black and white). You can get each of them for about $49 (it’s actually less if you just need the upgrade) which is a killer deal. The offer ends on June 28th so jump on it now if you want to take advantage of it. Have a good one!
Absolutely nothing! Other than that’s the kind of stuff we talked about in my interview on Tamara Lackey’s show reDefine. The show is about 15 minutes long and Tamara asks questions about how I got into the Photoshop/Photography business, what I do in my personal time and what it’s like working full time over at Kelby Media Group. She’s an absolutely phenomenal interviewer so if you have a few minutes to spare today stop over and check out the show (or just watch it below). Many thanks to Tamara and the folks over at Adorama for making it happen. Have a good one!
Hey everyone. I wanted to give you a quick run down of where/what/when I’ll be teaching in the coming months.
The International Society of Aviation Photographers is having their annual symposium this week and I’ll be heading out to Seattle to teach there. I’ve heard amazing things about this conference so I’m really excited to be there. I’ll be teaching some Lightroom classes there on Thursday, but they’ve got a great few days planned so if you’re going make sure you stop in and say hi.
Norway Photoshop Conference
If you live in, near or around the Norway area I wanted to let you know I’ll be teaching at a conference there later this month (May 30th). Here’s a link to the conference website. I’ll be teaching Photoshop along side 3 other gurus (Kenneth Sortland Myklebust, Tommy Luhtanen, and Guy M Huste). I personally can’t read the website but I do know that I’ll be teaching my Photoshop compositing classes there.
Landscape Workshop In The Palouse
In early-mid June I’ll be teaching a full week landscape photography workshop in the Palouse (Washington state) and Olympic National Park (with a quick one-day stop at Mt. Rainier) with my good buddy Bill Fortney. I wrote about it on the blog here. It looks like there was one more last minute cancellation, so if you think you want to join us then make sure contact Bill ASAP to grab that last spot and get details.
Seminars and other workshops always get added but this is all I know for sure at this point. I’ll keep you posted. Have a good one!
I’ll be going live with Adobe and Scott Kelby on our weekly talk show, The Grid, to talk about their plans for photographers in the Adobe Creative Cloud.
If you’re a photographer (pro or not, that uses Lightroom and Photoshop) and been wondering if the creative cloud makes sense for you then you’re not alone. I hear it in just about every seminar I teach. Well, Adobe is sending one of their guys here so we can grill him live about what they have in store for photographers in the cloud. Plus, he’s going to give a few sneak peaks about some technology to come. I hope you can join us live and jump in with your questions.
When: 4pm ET Today
A couple of weeks ago I posted about a new online training class (for Kelby Training) that I’m doing on Landscape Photography. Your responses were so helpful, and it really helped fuel me for this trip that I’m leaving on today. The Kelby Training crew and I are heading out to Moab, Utah to Canyonlands National Park for the first class. I’ve got a lot of great stuff planned and I’m really excited to dive in. Again, I owe every one of you who left a message that day because your feedback will definitely help make the class better.
Next up, for all of you Lightroom fans, I wrote an article for SmugMug called 5 Ways to Kickstart Your Lightroom Workflow. It’s free and you can check it out over on Smugmug’s website right here.
I’m sure things will be pretty crazy shooting and filming this week but I’ll do my best to keep you posted from Moab and post some photos along the way. Thanks and have a good one!
