  1. Matt –

    Not you, too.

    You wouldn’t say “where me will be teaching.” Why, oh, why, would you write “where me and a bunch of other Lightroom pros will be teaching”?

    I realize that language changes over time and this construction appears to be one of those changes. But for this old fart the “me and …” construction hurts my head whenever I read it or hear it. It jars. It grates. It’s just plain painful.

    I beg of you: “where a bunch of other Lightroom pros and I will be teaching” next time.

    This is, by the way, a fan letter (he hastens to add). I’m amazed at your photographic sensibility. I marvel at your accessible, friendly, knowledgeable writing. I’m entertained –and I learn something– every time I encounter your work.

    Please, please, though: don’t do the “me and” nasty any more.

    – Chris

  4. I checked Saurabh’s work and you’re absolutely correct: “Wow!” He lives right across the Bay from me and shoots all the places I love. Thanks, Matt.

  5. Dear Matt, I was wondering all day today what was going on with so many hits to my website, which otherwise is a tranquil and quiet place. Now I know you started it all :)

    Thank you so much for the mention. I am very honored and glad that you found my work worthy of mentioning on your blog.

    Love your tips on LR. Over the years I have learned so many things from you and LR is what I primarily use for post processing. Thank you so much for all the cool tips.

    Regards,
    Saurabh

  7. Hey Matt,

    So, I installed the Lr3-2 RC on my computer and noticed that it has installed like a whole new application, as opposed to just an update. Does that make a difference?

    Meaning, should I wait until the full releases comes out to make any changes in my catalogs? I just noticed that it sets next to the Lr3 app instead of integrating with it.
    I’m very excited about the filter lock option!

    • Yep, as long as it’s a release candidate it’ll install a whole new app vs. updating. I’d just use it as a test catalog so you don’t run into issues when the real 3.2 comes out.
