Get out your mouse ears, slap on some sunscreen and get ready to learn about digital photography, Photoshop, Lightroom and a whole host of stuff. That’s right; I am getting ready to return to one of my favorite places to teach—Photoshop World.

This year Photoshop World is going to be in Orlando in April. I am so honored and thrilled to be returning to get to hang out with the Kelby One team and all the amazing instructors that are going to be teaching there this spring. I know that I am excited to see classes by Stacey Pearsall, Moose Peterson, SharkPixel, Dave Clayton, Glyn Dewis and a host of others. So much to pack into such a short time and I am sure my head will be filled with visions of pixels dancing when I leave.

As for me, other than learning tons in amazing classes, I am going to be teaching two classes and doing portfolio reviews. My first class is on sharpening in Lightroom.  In this session, we are going to talk about everything in the Details Panel in Lightroom and then how to properly apply creative sharpening, and finally focus in on output sharpening to get the best from your prints.

My next class is on fine-art printing in Photoshop. In this session, we are going to be covering all/most/nearly everything you need to think about when creating amazing prints. Starting with selecting the right paper, color management and preferences to signing and matting your photographs. We will cover the A-Zs of the fine art print all in just under an hour. To be honest, we won’t cover it all, but I am taking a speed speaking class to pack in as much as possible in that hour.

Finally, one of my favorite things to do is to sit down with photographers and talk about their work. I am excited to be able to participate in the portfolio reviews. It is a chance to look at some amazing work and give some feedback that can hopefully really make a difference in someone photography.

I hope you can make it down to the conference and if you are going, don’t hesitate to come up and say hi. After all, we are all there to get to meet new and exciting people so don’t be shy. See you there!

Can you answer the question Why do you care?

Can you answer the question Why do you care?

I had a conversation with a friend a while back about photography and at one point, relating to photo editing, I asked him, Why do you care what someone else does so much? There was a long, almost uncomfortably long pause. The answer that he gave didn’t really matter much to me, but that pause really got me thinking about the idea of why do we care about things the way we do.

So this week’s podcast dives into the notion of caring about your work and how it impacts you and the viewers of your work.

This isn’t personal. It’s just business

This isn’t personal. It’s just business

When I was younger, I worked for a high-tech startup that had to lay most of the company off in order to survive. They didn’t do anything but prolong their demise, but the language used during the layoffs has stuck with me. I hadn’t thought about it in a long time but recently heard someone say it when talking about photographs. The phrase used when I was laid off and in the review was This isn’t personal. It’s just business. The thing that stuck with me all these years is that it is business to the sender of the message, but nothing but personal to the receiver.  This week’s podcast examine the impact of that phrase when talking photography.

A mile in someone else’s shoes

A mile in someone else’s shoes

Sometimes when we look at a photograph, we just don’t get it. We move on and don’t give it another thought. However, assuming the photographer was attempting to make something meaningful with there work, the photograph does have something to say. I have grown to think that it is our job to try and understand our reactions to photographs so that we can better understand the photographer. While we may not fully appreciate the images, if we can walk a mile in their shoes we might gain some deeper understanding into who they are and how they move through the world. In turn, maybe someone will offer us the same kindness. In this week’s podcast, I talk about how spending the time to think about the experiences of someone that led to the making the image can tell us a lot about who we are and how we see the world even in someone else’s image.
