First things first - A great big "Thank You" for all the very kind comments on the articles and the images these past couple of weeks. Thanks again.
Here is what is in the works for upcoming posts. Next week I will be doing an entire review of that little known Canon camera feature called "Highlight Tone Priority" available on Canon's three new cameras. We will take an in-depth look at just how it works, why it works, and why you want to shoot with it "Enabled" regardless of whether you shoot JPEG's or RAW. Also, in development is an article on "Specularity" - when you want it, and when you don't, and how it can be controlled. Other topics include; high ISO shooting and noise reduction, more "flash" techniques, and more Photoshop tutorials. Stay tuned - a lot of "good stuff" is on the way.
We wrapped the first day of my Digital Master Class yesterday and are off to a good start. More on-location shooting today. The only downside is the weather - 95+ degrees here in Cincy, again. August proved to be record setting and it looks like September may also break all high temperature records. Another "hot" 95+ degrees scheduled for today. But heck, no problem - we are starting today's class with a hypnosis session where the suggestion will be that every time we are outside, we are to think Alaska - "...you are getting sleepy..."
How about a little news and then a little technique - "off to the races."
