In this video I talk about developing your creative vision by taking some time to connect with your subject. To do that I share some insights as well as a few ‘behind the image’ stories to illustrate the principles I’m highlighting.
In this video I define what I mean by a master photo. Then I go on to explain how I organize, archive and backup my library of master photo files both locally in my studio as well as offsite.

I’m excited to share a review of a company’s product that I’ve been using for quite some time as my main photo & video storage and backup solution. I have a brand new Drobo 5D3 that I’ll go over and show you how I use it and ON1 Photo RAW 2018 together in my professional workflow.
I’ve had a lot of questions lately about what tools to use when removing distractions in Photo RAW 2018. In this video I show you how and when to effectively use the Perfect Eraser, Clone and Healing brushes to remove distractions from your raw images. I’ll also talk a bit about using these tools with a Wacom tablet and how to maximize your system’s performance when using these tools.
If you haven’t used the new Import engine in Photo RAW 2018 you really should check it out. It automates and streamlines a lot of great digital asset management tools in one place. In this video I show how I use Import to automatically rename, back-up, organize and add metadata to my files quickly and easily.

Let’s see your absolute best image of this past summer! — Wait a second, no we haven’t forgotten our friends in the Southern Hemisphere. Just put “your summer is our winter” in the submission description. My friends at Blackrapid have offered to provide the overall winner with a Sport Breathe strap as well as Cross Shot Breathe straps for the second and third place winners.

Below are the rules, how to enter and some tips on what we are looking for from both of us.
We asked you in the Plus community to choose a reverse photo challenge mission for Blake and I this month and we were blown away by how many great suggestions you came back with. Again and again we heard a couple of themes pop up. Lots of you wanted to see us work with a limited number of frames. Still another group wanted us to focus on street or city photography. Blake and I got together and decided to combine these two great ideas into the City & Street in 24 Frames Reverse Photo Challenge.
Happy August everyone! Blake is our guest coach this month and he has graciously agreed to take on a reverse photo challenge with me. What is a reverse photo challenge? Well, most months we coaches set a photographic challenge for you guys to submit images on a specific theme.

That’s right, you as a community can challenge us to accomplish some photographic mission and we will each go out and tackle it while creating videos about the process and results. This is the call for you to submit those ideas for the challenge. Anything goes within the realm of the reasonable. Below are a few simple ground rules:
