Adobe’s Rick Miller, my personal Lightroom Guru, is doing an online seminar this Friday at 1pm PST. These are normally invitation-only events but they have opened it up to all Camera Dojo readers as well. If you want to see some really cool new features in Lightroom 2.0 then you should find a way to attend it.
Adobe has rolled out some cool new features into the online Photoshop Express product. Here are a few of the key items:
Photoshop Express is now officially hooked up with Flickr. Now you can pull photos from Flickr into Photoshop Express, amp them up, then upload them back into Flickr to show them off to your vast and adoring fan base.
CameraPorn.net is a great photography blog in it’s own right and they just put up a list of 60 photography sites that you should most certainly have bookmarked. Included at #8 is (our former name) L7Foto.com. Thanks guys for giving us a shout-out and keep up the great work on your own site.
L7Foto.com has been growing by leaps and bounds but the problem is that when you tell someone L7Foto.com they remember L7Photo.com which belongs to someone else. To make it easier to find and tell people the URL we have changed the name to CameraDojo.com. This new name is reflective of our style of providing news, information, tutorials, and tips in a central location. We have lots of new things planned for CameraDojo.com so stay tuned and thanks for coming!
If you want to progress in your art you should really consider taking a workshop once in a while. Since I haven’t been able to attend one in a while I was thrilled that Ed Piece’s Captivated by the Light workshop was coming to my town. Be sure and check it out if it is coming to your area. Ed is a master of light and technique. He shows you have to light a subject properly for the most flattering angles.

So here they are – a first glimpse of the P1 production units. Pictured are the v1.0 preproduction prototypes. These are functional units from the first short run batch. They were manufactured with micro sized internal antennas. These micro antennas, though highly and specially tuned for this application, failed to provide the even signal pattern they were looking for. The pictured units have been refitted with connectors for external antennas. The unit pictured displays the antenna to be used on final production units.
