Seeing as its Friday I thought I’d end up posting what can only best be described as “News and Stuff”
Big news this week was the release of Lightroom 4 which as expected contains yet more enhancements than expected:
With this latest release Adobe have lowered the pricing considerably:
Full Version £103
There are numerous places across the Internet to place your order but to find out what all the fuss is about be sure to check out the Lightroom 4 Launch Centre by the N.A.P.P. [Link]
Focus on Imaging
On Tuesday I headed on over to the Focus on Imaging Expo at the NEC, Birmingham along with Dave Clayton; a great opportunity to catch up with some old friends (not a reference to age I hasten to add) and some new ones…
Managed to get some quality time with some great folks/companies who were exhibiting namely:
Lots of exciting discussion went on over coffee so I’ll update you on that in the near future
Building on the incredibly successful previous 3 books in the series this latest release certainly takes things up a level; I’ll be posting a review next week.
If you own an iPad, or have ordered the new ‘New iPad’ (hint, hint) you can check out the full scoop and download it direct from the iTunes Store right now [Link] for the incredible price of FREE
Last but not least is just a booster that I had earlier in the week following the post about my recent compositing workshop [Link]
German Digital Artist and Photoshop Master Uli Steiger [Link] who’s work and teaching I’ve followed for some to now dropped by and sent a message over having read the post.
“Very cool BTS coverage! I can almost feel the creative atmosphere! Thanks for this very nice and informative view behind your scenes! I think that many people just don’t know what to expect in a workshop. They have problems to judge their own knowledge and the knowledge of the trainer. I heard of so many people that went into a workshop or training and were completely disapointed about the poor impact it had. Seeing that you have a professional model, that you take the time producing a picture of all the participants explains a lot about the way people can learn from you and what to expect when booking one of your workshops! It’s important that you love what you do and I can see that you know that“
You know it doesn’t matter who you are or how old because to get a supportive message from someone you look up to and admire is always a boost.
On that note, when was the last time you sent words of encouragement and support to someone? Costs nothing but you know it could well make someone’s day; the power of words huh
Right that’s all for now so whatever you’re up to, have a wonderful weekend and I’ll catch you back here in a few days,
