The ‘Ultimate Workshop’ book shoot


This is a story about how Jeff Schewe and Martin Evening got together in Chicago last year to shoot a set of pictures especially for our new joint book ‘Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: The Ultimate Workshop‘.

The title is kind of self-explanatory. This is a brand new book in the Photoshop for Photographers series (published by Focal Press) and forms a masterclass type experience with two leading Photoshop experts. It’s a book aimed at intermediate to advanced-level users and assumes that the reader is already pretty familiar with the Photoshop interface and basic tools and there is therefore no need to have to explain the basics all over again plus color management etc. You can already find all that information in the main Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers book. This new title contains 400 pages of Photoshop techniques shown in step-by-step tutorial form.

On the Road to Boston

I’m off to Boston (well, ok, officially it’s Cambridge but that’s close, right?) to do the Epson Print Academy┬áthis Saturday. I’m going in a day early to go for a visit to the MIT Digital Imaging labs and meet some geeks :~) If you are in the Boston area, you really should come to the Academy…you could even win a printer!
