Last year I created a short slideshow (The Red Thread) of the images that I took with my mobile phone. I found it to be an enjoyable way to look back at the year and reflect upon the places that I’ve gone, the people I’ve met and the things that I was paying attention to. So, I decided to do it again this year and here it is – Moments Alone. I’m sure that the images will mean more to me than they do to you, but I would encourage you to create a collection of your own images and look at them as a complete body of work for the year to see what you can discover about yourself.

B&H Photo and Video was kind enough to let me do a live presentation on Photoshop CS6 for their customers when I was in New York last month. Not only that, they recorded it and posted it to their site! Now I know that a 2 hour presentation is going to take a lot of effort to watch if you have a short attention span, but I think it’s worth it if you want to know what’s new in Photoshop CS6 for Photographers! Click here to view the seminar.
Thank you for making this happen Deborah and the B&H team!

If you or someone you know is in the early stages of exploring Photoshop, there’s a new learning destination that’s worth a visit. Photoshop for Beginners is a sub-forum on Adobe.com that is tailor-made for newcomers to the powerful but complex software.
Ask any question in Photoshop for Beginners and you’ll receive an answer that emphasizes visuals — including video how-tos — and steers clear of unnecessary jargon.
Now until November 15th, explain how you complete a task using two or more Adobe products and you could win prizes including Amazon.com gift cards and a membership to the Creative Cloud. For more information, and to enter, click here.
