I’m off to Boston and Photoshop World this week. I’ll be hooking up with Martin Evening there as well–we are actually doing a conference session together! Which should be fun because I’ll get to make fun of the way Martin pronounces common Photoshop tools’ names. Those Brits…they even misspell the word color!
Andrew Rodney and JP Caponigro and I are doing another mini-Print Academy for Epson. After PSW I’m off to hook up with Seth Resnick and Michael Reichmann in Miami Beach for some tutorial taping….more about that later!

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.

I’m off to Boston (well, ok, officially it’s Cambridge but that’s close, right?) to do the Epson Print Academy this 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!

2,200+ miles on board the ship and 13,000+ miles on planes and we’re finally back from Antarctica. I shot a little over 12K captures for just under 250 gigs of images. I set a new personal record of 70 gigs in one 24 hour period (which is pretty easy when you have 24 hours of sun!).
Aug 18, 2008
I’m off for a short visit with TK in Ann Arbor (I’m going to get to meet Eric Chan) and then off to Toronto to tape some stuff with Michael Reichmann. So, I’ll be off-line till the end of the week.

After 5,369 miles on the bike, I’m back…
13 states (although I was only in Montana for a few miles) and a whole bunch of mountain ranges and passes, I’m back with no speeding tickets! (I did see a lot of state troopers along the way but I guess they didn’t see me).
I left at dawn on June 3rd and returned about 8:00PM on June 20th although I didn’t ride the bike for the whole week of my workshop at Greg Gorman’s (good that I didn’t because of the amount of wine consumed).
I’ll have a trip and workshop report at a later date but I’ve got to go through about 5K images that I shot along the way.
Jun 15, 2008
Well, the workshop is over and I’m in San Francisco Sunday evening planning my route home. I rode down Highway 1 from Mendocino to San Francisco–that’s a heck of a ride. Monday I’m going to visit Peachpit and do a short ride with Lisa Brazieal, the production manager on my book. Then it’s all out riding East. I should be home Friday or maybe Saturday depending on photo ops. And the full story of the ride and workshop will come in a week or so.

Yep…I’m hooking up with Michael Reichmann of The Luminous Landscape to shoot material (shots and video) for our upcoming Lightroom 2.0 video tutorial.Now, don’t make too much about the timing of this…this is the only time Michael have to actually get together to shoot stuff photographically before we tape our video.
We wanted to shoot stuff together (something a bit North of Antarctica ya know) in order to have working photo samples to demo our respective workflows. The release of the video tutorial will come after Lightroom 2.0 ships (we really can’t say exactly that will be).
So, stayed tuned for an update, but I’ll be gone for the week starting, well, now! I’ll try to post something while we work. Michael it seems, has booked a suite (not the honeymoon suite I hope) so we can shoot night shots of the falls & the fireworks (assuming they do it in the rain). So, we’ll see what happens…(or doesn’t).

Last week at Photoshop World, Scott Kelby was limping along on crutches due to an unfortunate “incident” with what turns out to be a home treadmill. See his admission on his blog. But it seems Scott was able to move around pretty good because of his rented scooter.

I made it back from rainy old London (well, it was sunny for some of the time) and now I’m off to San Francisco for some top secret (tell no one) meetings with people from a large company whose name starts with the letter A (and no it ain’t Apple).
Here’s George Jardine (left) and Martin sitting around the living room on one of the sunny days.
Mar 4, 2008
I’m leaving, on a jet plane…don’t know when I’ll be back again.
Well, actually I do know. Friday the 14th of March. In the meantime I’ll be in London working with Martin Evening on some stuff. (top secret, tell no one) Well, ok, I’ll spill some of the beans…
I’m going over to London to shoot with Martin for an upcoming book we’ll be working on (can’t tell you the title because it’s yet to be decided) but I can say that it’ll be a pro level book on Photoshop techniques aimed at photographers.
I’ll also be there shooting Martin shooting for his upcoming Lightroom book (don’t read too much into the timing as it relates to an as yet, unannounced new version of Lightroom–other than the fact that the Lightroom engineers ARE working on a new version–DOH). But we’ll also have a special guest along, George Jardine, pro evangelist from Adobe who will be shooting video.
So, I’ll be off-line for about ten days, unless I can steal some bandwidth and make a couple of fun posts! See ya when I return.

PSN posted a story earlier today noting that CNET has posted a poll about Poll: Which is better, Aperture or Lightroom?
Well, so far the poll results as of 5:45PM Central have Apple’s Aperture out ahead by a whopping 63.4% to Lightroom’s 36.6%. Could it be that people are really that more impressed with Aperture than Lightroom?
I suppose it could be…but since this is the season of politics and polls, I though I would look into this a little bit.

As with many milestones in history, people tend to remember them in the context of their own life. Since we now know (or at least believe) that Photoshop 1.0 shipped on February 19, 1990 (and Lightroom shipped on the same day of February 2007), Jeff Schewe asked a few friends “where were you”? Here are their answers…
Feb 19, 2008
In the grand scheme of human history, February 19th may not go down as a momentous occasion, but it’s recently come to light that at least in the world of digital imaging, today signifies a more important date than most anybody realized. And that folks, is the delicious irony.

I’ll be hitting the road to attend PMA in Las Vegas starting Wed (PMA starts Thurs.). But, I won’t be back to Chicago till Tues. of next week because Michael Reichmann and I are going to do a quick trip to Zion National Park on Sun. & Mon.

I’m off on a little trip out to Long Beach, CA home of Epson USA. Can’t tell ya why…just that I’m going (along with a few friends). The topper of the trip will be dinner at Greg Gorman’s house on Wednesday night. I won’t be back until Friday (although I’ll be coming off the downhill leg of the redeye from LA so don’t expect too much wisdom and wit on Friday).
Next week is also going to be rather busy…Michael Reichmann and his trusty videographer Chris Sanderson will be in town. We’ll be taping an upcoming video tutorial all about Camera Raw. Included in the video will be an interview with the Camera Raw engineering team as well as an appearance by Tom Fors talking about camera calibration and demoing his AcrCalibrator.

I’ll be on the road to Ann Arbor, MI for a short visit with Thomas Knoll (can’t tell ya what’s going on just yet) and will be back Friday of this week. See ya then…

Warning: zero Photoshop content in this story.
Final ending mileage was 88,114. The starting mileage was 84,843 so that makes a total of 3,271 miles in seven days. That works out to an average of 467 miles a day for a solid week! When you put it that way, that’s a lot of time on the bike!

Just a quick Sunday nite update from the road, yes, the aspens in Colorado are turning. The shot above was taken just after George Jardine and I crossed over Independance Pass coming out of Aspen (the town, not the tree).
Sep 20, 2007
I’m taking a few days off to ride to Colorado and see if the aspens are turning. Ok, I suppose I could just Google but this is more fun. I’m gong to hook up with George Jardine (he has a bike too) and take some snaps. Pictures upon my return (unless we stay at a place with high-speed and have some fun shots). See ya next week!
Sep 4, 2007
I’m off to Vegas baby…I may do some posts from there (or I may not-depends on the amount of frenzied activity). I’ll be doing another mini-Epson Print Academy with Andrew Rodney and JP Caponigro (sold out) as well as a Real World Camera Raw session on Friday and Making the Perfect B&W print on Saturday.
If you’re going, stop by and say hello! If you aren’t going, I’ll have photos upon my return–which won’t be until next week because I’m off to Adobe, San Jose to cause trouble!

As some of may know, with Bruce’s passing I’ve taken up the responsibility to update Real World Camera Raw in Adobe Photoshop CS3-Bruce’s best-selling book series all about Camera Raw.
As a result, I’m going to take a break from PhotoshopNews while I concentrate on finishing up the book. So, from now until the beginning of August, 2007, PhotoshopNews will get only weekly attention when there’s a big story about Photoshop, Lightroom or Adobe in general. Some of my PixelGenius partners have volunteered to pick up some of the slack but rather than trying to do a daily update, look for weekly postings.
The book is due to be released the beginning of September, 2007.

I’ll be leaving for Toronto (yes, on the bike) in time to attend Michael Reichmann’s Luminous Landscape Gallery Opening this Friday, 6-9PM.
While in Toronto, Michael and I will be taping a new video tutorial about Fine Art Digital Printing-which should be available some time in early summer (depending on your definition of “summer”). Since our Lightroom V1.0 video tutorial has been so popular, we decided to team up again for “everything you want to know about printing”. I’ll try to post some fun shots from Michael’s opening. See ya next week…

After 14,000+ total air miles and over 3,200 nautical miles, I’ve returned from Antarctica only to get back on a plane Friday, March 9th to go south again. This time however, I’m stopping in the Florida Keys for a week of vacation. Boy, do I need it – Antarctica was a lot of work!
