Just a few news nuggets today of some things that have been going on and simmering on the proverbial stove for the past few weeks. Many of these are now starting to bubble up to the surface, so here’s a little hint as to what I’ve been up to, and what is ahead for the blog and podcast…
Podcast news: I had an opportunity to sit down with none other than David Duchemin this last Monday and we had a blast – talking about how to create compelling images, his background, his thoughts on gear, and the future of photography. It’s a great session and I can’t wait to get this together…look for it early next week. Also coming up in forthcoming podcasts include none other than AJ Wood, Becky Thomas, and many others. Like the names? Wanna see more? Let me know who you want to hear from and we’ll book ’em!
Review news: There has been so much pouring in recently, I’ve literally been swamped with gear sitting around me. The good news is that a lot of reviews are coming out…you’ve seen the Sigma 50mm and the Ray Flash, but coming up is a literal cornucopia of review material including the Drobo, the Expodisc, Lightroom 3 Beta (on both Mac and Windows, now that I’ve upgraded to Snow Leopard), and much more.
Blog news: The impending format change to the blog is getting closer and closer – with lots of exciting additions hopefully before the end of the year including links to newsletters, photo galleries, and all other sorts of stuff.
Contest news: The last contest winner took home a copy of Noise Ninja from the folks at Picture Code! This month, the winner of the Winter themed contest will take home a book from Matthew Bamberg, a $25 gift card fro B&H, and a DVD from NAPP’s famous Photoshop User TV, The Best of Season 11! And if you think that’s not enough – ho boy, wait until you get a glimpse of what’s on deck for the Year End Giveaway…more stuff than you can shake a stick at!
So, stay tuned, let me know what else you want to see, hear, and win – and we’ll start gearing up for 2010! Happy shooting all, and don’t forget to stop in tomorrow for a surprise to take us into the weekend!
