Hey Folks,
Seeing as its Friday I thought I’d end up posting what can only best be described as “News and Stuff”

Lightroom 4
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
Upgrade £59

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:

Helen and Matt from SnapperStuff (UK ThinkTank Distributors and more…) [Link]
Bob and Andy from OnOne Software [Link]
Ivan from Topaz Labs [Link]
and Jessie from 3 Legged Thing [Link]

Lots of exciting discussion went on over coffee so I’ll update you on that in the near future 🙂

The Digital Photography Book Part 4
It’s been quite a week as also we’ve seen the release of a new book from Scott Kelby: The Digital Photography Book Part 4.

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.

Lighting Recipes iPad App
Also on the subject of Scott Kelby and Kelby Training, yesterday saw the release of his brand new App for the iPad: Lighting Recipes.

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 🙂

Uli Steiger
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,
Enjoy 🙂

    Another great post (Think I’ll be typing that a lot here) lots of great info and as for the encouragement, well lets just say I’ve been on the receiving end of much needed & appreciated encouragement from some of the best people in the business, it can make a huge difference & you might think it insignificant when you give it but trust me, it’s not. So look out for those opportunities to give someone a little boost in whatever they’re doing in their lives… And as Glyn says,
    “Costs nothing but you know it could well make someone’s day; the power of words huh”
    Golden words 😉

    Cheers. JT
