Lightroom 3.4 and Professional Imaging Update

Had a great time teaching here in the Netherlands at Professional Imaging 2011. You can see a behind the scenes video from Frank Doorhof here (link). I’ll post a bit more in depth next week and some shots from a live Compositing and Selections class that I did but overall I had a wonderful 3 days.

In other news, Adobe announced a release candidate of Lightroom 3.4 on the Adobe labs website. It basically includes support and profiles for new cameras and lenses and a few bug fixes. Since it’s a “release candidate” it’s not totally ready for prime time yet but they say it’s very well tested at this point so the full release isn’t far away. Simply put, if you have a camera or lens that you need support for right away (that’s included in the release candidate) then I’d probably download it. If not, I’d just wait for the full version.

That’s it from Amsterdam. Heading out to Paris for a quick vacation with the wife for a few days and then back home. If you have any shooting suggestions please leave a comment and let me know. Thanks!
