Posting here at Photoshop is always a challenge – early morning wakeup calls and late evenings make it hard to post on a regular schedule. Anyway, I'll still give it my best shot.
I had a great crowd at my program last evening – thanks to all for the very nice remarks. My program centered around how Lightroom can be best used for Wedding and Portrait photographers. While not ALL Lightroom’s features are a good fit for weddings/portraits, some are absolutely wonderful.
If you haven’t heard, Bert Monroy completed his opus digital painting, “Times Square” this year. It is on display in the Tech Expo here in Orlando. His masterpiece is an astonishing accomplishment. Click on the image or right here for the complete background story.
This is the largest image Bert have ever created, pushing the boundaries of the software and hardware as far as they can go. It was unveiled at the Photo Plus Expo in New York on October 28, 2010 as a work in progress. A 25 foot light box was constructed to display the piece that has been printed on a new material being introduced by Epson.
• The image size is 60 inches by 300 inches.
• The flattened file weighs in at 6.52 Gigabytes.
• It took four years to create.
• The painting is comprised of almost three thousand individual Photoshop and Illustrator files.
• Taking a cumulative total of all the files, the overall image contains over 500,000 layers.
Burt has agreed to meet with me at noon to discuss the process and evolution of the finished work. It should be a fascinating visit. He has agreed to let me video the interview, too – I hope I can get it up on DPT tomorrow.
Hey gang, that’s it for me today. I've got to run – I hooking up with Bert in about an hour. Hope to see you tomorrow with the interview.
See ya’ then, David
