Usually I will put some stuff together while at work for posting when I get home, but today was rather busy, so this is going to be off the cuff. I just sat down and hit my blog list (see the “Top 7 of ’07”) and busted a gut at Scott Kelby’s blog. He posted a clip of Dan Margulis doing his kelby Training tutorial, where Dan really gets his dander up acting out a Shakespearean scene. The final segue into the LAB color space is where I just lost it. This guy is wicked smart and making me realize I still have years to go before I know even half as much as he does in LAB. Anyway, check out Photoshop Insider for a very “heady” intro to the LAB color space – if you’re into color, you’ll get a kick out of this.
The other web gem for today is the iTunes listing. Canon Blogger is now on iTunes! I know I mentioned this yesterday, but a link has been set up in the sidebar with a very “Web 2.0” style graphic that links there. Stop in and download/review some episodes today. (You might be one of the first ever to review Cannon Blogger! 🙂 )
The poll for software preferences was closed yesterday. The winner was LR, followed by CS3, and CS2, taking 35%, 30%, and 17% respectively of the total of 215 votes. Here’s the vote totals:
Having looked at the software, the new poll now looks at the hardware (or gear) selections. Clearly there are other options out there besides Canon, and we often will choose multiple vendors for our choices. We’ll go with this one for a month too, so make sure you vote on the sidebar.
Last but not least, I need some help! I’ve been perusing some Flash tutorials and unfortunately, Flash animation is just not something I can dedicate the amount of time needed to get a good handle on things and create a dynamite intro for the vidcasts. So…any Flash gurus out there? Throw a link up to your flash movie proposals into the comments section, and the winning flash suggestion…well, wins! (I’ll think of something cool to throw to the winner…)
That’s it for Wednesday – off to watch the Apple Expo! Until tomorrow – happy shooting and watch your apertures!
