This will go down as one of the, ahem, funner work weeks I’ve had in a while. Yesterday I rented a crappy rental car to drive down to have lunch with Chase Jarvis. Instead I got a brand new black Mustang GT, and giggled all the way down the I-5. Chase and I have corresponded but never met and we …

Shoot What You Love?

Pretentious author signing book and looking pensive. Marga Lopez shot captured my best Sears pose at this weekend’s Vancouver celebration of the launch of Within The Frame. Thanks to all who came to help us celebrate and to my long-suffering wife on whose shoulders I dumped this thing when I got too busy. Yesterday I spent the second of two …

Thursday Resource Roundup

In News & Stuff, Resources by David12 Comments

My friend, Mitchell Kanashkevich is an extraordinarily talented photographer, I’m a huge fan of his work. He’s just released an ebook (image above is from the cover) about his post-production methods and it rocks. It’s the real goods. No gimmicks, no fancy plug-ins. It’s somewhere between a book and an extended set of tutorials in length, but the cost on …

New 13" MacBook Pro, etc.

In GEAR, News & Stuff by David4 Comments

Yesterday my corner of the twittersphere was filled with talk about the “Gear is Good, Vision is Better” manifesto, including some entertaining satire from my friend GKB (he’s on Twitter as @gregkb ) who’s taken on the mantle of the Gear Guru, my arch-nemisis whose manifesto would more than likely be “Screw Vision, Give Me Something Shiny”. It’s exciting to …

Tuesday Roundup

In Giveaways, News & Stuff, Resources, Within The Frame by David10 Comments

Yesterday was a long day shooting in the sun, my brain’s barely up to more than a roundup of some things I’ve been intending to mention. First, last week I was down in Tampa with my friends at Kelby Media to flog the book (see the bald guy smiling suspiciously in image above). At some point I’ll pull back the …

So Here's The Thing…

In News & Stuff by David50 Comments

Yesterday I acknowledged that I know the blog has changed over the last month. I’ve been here most days but the consistent 2am PST publishing times have slipped, there are days I don’t write anything, and on those days that I do write, it’s not always the same depth of content it once was. So this is me begging for …

Good Morning

In Just For Fun, News & Stuff, Within The Frame by David4 Comments

Hello from sunny Tampa. It’s gorgeous here (and I can see pink flamingos from my window. And they aren’t plastic!) and as I’m heading into another day with Scott Kelby and the gang, I wanted to drop a line and say hi. Yesterday was a blast. I had a lot of hang time with my bud RC and a taping …
