Novem… uh… DECEMBER’s give away!

Due to life being OBE (overtaken by events, not, as some of you think out of bodice experience), I managed to miss the drawing for November’s prize: The Filmmaker’s Eye: Learning (and Breaking) the Rules of Cinematic Composition.

Details on entering after the jump.

The Filmmaker’s Eye

I recently received an advance copy of The Filmmaker’s Eye (Gustavo Mercado, Focal Press 2010), and posted a general review up on Amazon.com. You can get an overview there, so I wanted to expand on something I mentioned there: how this book impacts me as a photographer.

Shooting Horses

I thought that might get your attention. If you follow my online ramblings, you are sure to know that I am trying to get into equine photography. I recently completely shooting my 4th event for the local AERC club, and my gear lineup is getting fairly solid. I figured I’d log it here for anyone else who may be interested in such things.

Photoshop World 2010

Photoshop World 2010

Well, I didn’t get to go this year, but I hope to hit the Spring show. If you are there this year, take advantage of some key opportunities to meet the movers and shakers of the awesomeness that is Photoshop. Among them will be John Nack talking up tablets (both Wacom and iPad flavors), which should be a very cool way to glimpse the future of tablet/pad work flows.
