I’ll be speaking at Calumet Photo today and would love to see you there! I’m talking wildlife, aviation, sports, flash, video, fun, inspiration and how YOU can do it! We’re at 22 West 22nd Street,New York starting at 6pm and over at 8pm. I want to thank Lexar and Calumet for bringing me in and providing me the opportunity to meet you! Come by and say hi!
Hey guys! Brent here, filling in for dad while he’s on the road. Even on the road, we got some great new content for ya that Moose thought you would like to know about!
Today we are releasing a minor updates to Taking Flight which includes videos on Hand Holding, Panning, Sensor Cleaning, and Wrist Bands. It’s just a taste of some of the things we have planned to add to the book in time to come.
Simply open up your copy of Taking Flight while connected to the internet, and it will ask if you would like to update now or later.
Kinda stuck in Boston so went for a walk this evening with the D600. It’s been a rainy, drizzly day so finally just before beer time we went for a stroll. I took the D600 with a 24f1.4 attached just for fun and to get use to it. There was no light but I shot anyways. The first thing I noticed was it’s a great feeling camera! And when you shoot with it, it has the old time, F3 clunk when it fires. I like that. What you see here is a HDR, 3 image HDR. Ya, while Nikon gave the D600 the ability to disconnect the camera and flash exposure comp, they only gave it a 3 image bracketing system. That aside, my initial, (repeat initial) feeling is a really like the D600 files. The 14bit Nef is 31MB of gorgeous info. So it’s like all photography, the ying and the yang and so far, the pros out definitely out weighing the cons.
Heyya…A little good news…to all you have pinged saying my Facebook page was maxed out on friends, well my team (Brent’s better half) is updating the page so everyone can now “Like” the page and become a friend with no limits. The bad news, the page won’t be the same with some info, photos and other stuff missing. So bare with us, we’ll get ‘er back up and working so we can continue on talkin socially. Thanks for the continued support! And thanks Katt!

I’ve been flooded with emails and phone calls asking what I think about the D600. Folks should know, if I had any thoughts, I’d put them here. The D600 arrived as I was heading out the door on the last trip so all I’ve gotten to do is charge the battery and put in my initial settings. I like the feel of it, that’s about all I can report so far. I also just, just received the J2 (I had forgotten I had request that camera as well). Now that’s one funky feeling camera! I’ve charged its battery and set initial settings and that’s about it. I’ll be on the road for the next 3 weeks straight and they will be along for the ride. As I shoot with them and have any conclusion thoughts, I’ll post them here. In the meantime, all I can really report is that I do have them.
I CAN’T wait for this! It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be great photography, it’s going to be fall and it’s going to be with models! Unique University has us coming back for a Friday night presentation (all new) and Saturday shoot. My dear friend and Olympic shoot Jeff Cable will be joining me so come and have fun. And you just might learn a trick or two
It would seem this book was written just for me because Power, Speed & Automation fits my workflow like a glove! This book is more than Okey Dokey, my good friend and long time technical advisor Geoff Scott has done a marvelous, marvelous job helping us put the power of Photoshop into our workflow. Along with author Jeffrey Tranberry and edited by the marvelous Katrina Eismann, this is just a jewel of book. Clearly written, logically approached and full of help, the team has produced a must have book. Geoff…you’re okey dokey in my book!
WOW..it’s out and in its first day of release, sales nearly hit 200! Thank you!! Totally taking me by surprise, my latest book Taking Flight is now available…on the iPad! You’ll not find this at Amazon or you neighborhood bookstore, only on iTunes. That’s because this is a book like none other I’ve written. Ya, there is over 120pgs, over 200 photographs, but there is also a chapter of video Photoshop lessons and there are slideshows and user interactive charts and graphs. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what Brent has programmed into the book. And the best part is, this is the first book you’ll ever own that will be updated and you won’t have to buy another copy! Yeap, we’ll be adding to and updating the content with time and it will all be free to you!
We’re on our way to Photoshop World (where we’ll be giving away copies of the book) so didn’t get a video shot to illustrate some of the features of the book. We’ll get that done. In the meantime when you get it, just click everywhere you can, Brent has giant captions and information like Briefing Notes tucked all over the place. The only thing we’ve not worked out is, how we honor any requests for autographs. Enjoy!
