Links and General LR/Photography Coolness

Welcome back Thursday blog visitors. I’ve rounded up a few of my interesting picks for the week so here goes: Direct Daniella – This is a really clever little site. Basically, you go to this website and do a live photo shoot of a model (Daniella). It’s something done in conjunction with a contest for Taco Bell but I think it’s a really clever idea. You’d think we’re all above this but I found myself...

Lightroom (and other) Book News Update

Hi everyone. I just wanted to give a quick update on a Lightroom book that I’ve had a number of people ask me about over the last 6 months and a few other things. 1. The Layers book is still tearing up the charts and it’s been hanging in the top 500 of ALL books on Amazon (wow!). Jason D Moore has written a pretty thorough review of the book over on his site. FYI… Jason’s got a great site overall so make sure...

Yep, it’s been a whole year. Actually, it’s been longer then that since LR was out for about a year in beta before that. But most people didn’t really start using it until the launch last February. So happy birthday to...

Friday Stuff

Here’s some quick Lightroom news, websites, inspiration, and yes… one of Matt’s blatant plugs (I know, we haven’t seen one of those in a while). Let’s get started. First up, let’s start off with my blatant plug. I’m ecstatic to report that I held a copy of my newly printed Photoshop Layers book yesterday. See, I wrote this book back in June of 2007. Because of some publishing schedules and a...

It's "Suggest a Preset" Day

Does October 15, 2007 ring a bell? That was the day I started releasing my presets out to all of the visitors to this site each week. That was almost 4 months ago and something occurred to me the other day. I’m only giving away the presets I use. What about you guys? I’m sure there’s lots of presets that you wish you had. So let me know what they are? Is there any effect, technique, template, Identity Plate or...
