Adobe Photoshop Photography Program Offer

Back by popular demand, anyone can now take advantage of the Photoshop Photography Program (meaning that you don’t have to have a previous version of Adobe software to take advantage of it).

This offer includes access to Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5, plus feature updates and upgrades as they are available; 20GB of cloud storage for file sharing and collaboration; and Behance ProSite for your own fully customizable professional portfolio. Basically, you get all the benefits of a Creative Cloud single-app membership for Photoshop CC, but with Lightroom 5 included as well, for a terrific monthly price.

Fractured Moments – 2013 Year in Review

Last year I created a short slideshow (Moments Alone), from images taken over the year using my mobile phone. I found it to be a 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 paid attention to. So, I decided to do it again this year and here is the result  “Fractured Moments”. I would strongly encourage you to create a collection of your own images for the year -I have found both the process and the results to be very insightful.

See you after the Holidays! And don’t forget, every time a bell rings, a layer gets its mask… : )

Fun, 3 Minute Video of Adobe’s Create Now Event in Japan

Perhaps some of you have seen this video that Aaron Grimes made of Russell Brown and our crew in Japan, but if not, be sure to check it out – “Adobe Create Now – Japan 2013“. I think it sums up our Create Now event nicely! Thank you to everyone involved – including Rayce Bird for such awesome makeup and Etsuro Endso for your incredible translation skills!

That’s all for this week. For those of us in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving.

Photographs from Japan

I can’t believe that I will be leaving Japan tomorrow. I have had such an incredible trip and I thank all of the lovely people that I’ve met and that have helped me negotiate this wonderful culture. Here are a few images form my travels. I expect that many of them will end up in future demos that I do! Doumo arigatou gozaimasu.

My Aerial Project was Featured on Behance!

Yea! I just received and email that one of my aerial  projects was just featured on photographyserved.com and will appear on its front page today.

Check it out if you have time – it was my first time photographing from a helicopter without doors and, even though I’m terrified of flying, it was truly an incredible experience that I would highly recommend to everyone!
