When David Ziser told me about his upcoming seminar during our recent podcast conversation I knew this was one seminar this year that I couldn’t pass up going to. I have been counting the days waiting for the announcement so I could get it on my calendar. From the description, I think everyone should attend this as well, David has put together an amazing program and the price is just unreal as well.
If you have ever re-sized an image you know that you always lose a lot of image quality whenever you do that, especially when having to blow things up really large. The solution may just be with OnOne Software’s Genuine Fractals 6. This tool is designed purely to handle your image resizing needs. For myself, I often have to scale things like screenshots for use in the books that I have been writing so that the images look good in the books.
Kerry and David talk with Vui Bui on the effective use of video in marketing and promoting your photography business and where video fits (or doesnt fit) into the photographer’s business.

You may be seeing some weirdness in the lists of articles on and off today. We are making some changes to the architecture under the hood so it will be compatible with an upcoming theme change. Please bear with us, all the content is here and all the links work, its just some of the descriptions are a little funky while we are making these coding changes. Thank you.
Oh Canon 5D Mk II, how doest I love thee, let me count the ways. That could pretty much sum up my impressions of the newest camera from the folks at Canon but it probably doesn’t tell you what you really need to know. I certainly don’t have the testing lab that DPReview or Popular Photography has to tell you all the little specs and test results, but as someone who is shooting all the time, I figured I would get my hands on one and see if it really is all that it is hyped up to be.
We have seen every imaginable type of light diffuser product you can imagine and have even built different ones yourself for specific purposes all in the name of finding just the right combination of bounce and diffusion. Every device we have seen will work great in some specific situations but will not be ideal in every situation. When we saw the VerteX for the first time, while it may have looked more like a gimmick at first glance, I soon realized the potential and just had to try one out.
With the release of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.2, camera profiles are now built in by default. What are camera profiles? Well, let’s look start at the beginning and explain what happens to your images within Lightroom so we have a basis of reference when we get back to figuring out how to use these profiles.

Focal Point is OneOne Software’s newest Photoshop plug-in that allows you to create images with selective focus and edge vignette effects. Using these techniques you can guide the viewer’s eye to the spot in the image that you want them to look at. Using an easy to use “focus bug” you can control the sweet spot, the amount and kind of blur. These types of effects have only been possible with expensive specialty lenses before. Does Focal Point deliver on the goods? We decided to try it out for ourselves and see what we thought about it.
While many of us have been waiting for the originally announced products from last year, we were a little surprised that what we were expecting was killed off, however, Kevin and the guys have created a completely new ground-up redesign that now creates the most scalable feature-rich wireless remote system ever designed.
This week we have a special guest, the vivacious Scarlett Lillian who has gained tons of notoriety recently with her upbeat and punchy style. We talk with Scarlett about her transition from video to photography, how she found inspiration, her gear, her workflow, business, and much more.
We think there is a little something for everyone in this interview and hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it. Please stop by her site and let her know if you enjoyed listening to her.

Let’s face it, Adobe seriously dropped the ball on watermarking within Lightroom. Many of us got hints about potential new watermarking features for Lightroom 2.0 but were disappointed when there was nothing added. For many of us, Lightroom is the tool that we use for 90%+ of our workflow including prepping images for use on the web so the last thing we want to do is run some action in Photoshop or have to run an additional application to apply watermarks which reduces the image quality because the jpeg image has to be saved a second time.
In this video Kerry shows you a demo of the new Pixel Bender Gallery plugin. This is used to add special Pixel Bender effects to your images from Adobe Photoshop CS4. You will need to download the Pixel Bender plugin and any filters you want to add.
