Alert - Join me Thursday night for a Live Video Chat!

On Thursday, November 19th, at 7 PM CST (5 PM PST), we will be having a book pre-release video chat! I'll be up there in video along with Sara Jane Todd from Peachpit (the company publishing the book). All of you can participate in the chat beneath, and I'll do my best to answer all the questions that pop up!

I will also be announcing the dates for the three big launch parties in New York, Chicago, and Austin, so be sure to have your calendar ready!

If you hang out after the chat, I'll open it up so anyone can be on video. I think TinyChat allows up to 12 video streams at the same time... so it should be a good way for everyone to get to know one another!

A new free tutorial for you!

Well, I am not sure "tutorial" is the right word, but I did explain how I did everything with that "Stuck In Motion" video. I think it's a really fun technique and I hope you have a great time with it! Everything including hardware and the necessary steps are laid out on the page for you. Enjoy!

Facebook Fan Club

Come join the Facebook Fan page and you can stay apprised of the latest. A very nice community is growing there too, and I would like to add to it even more! I don't always have time to send out a newsletter, so for quick bits that you will find interesting, that's a great place.

HDR Workshop - Sold out, but a DVD coming soon!

Thanks again for your interest in the HDR Workshop. We set the pricing at $999 and every seat sold out in just 11 minutes! That is very exciting, and I know we will have a great time learning some amazing things together.

There will be an HDR DVD made of the Workshop. It'll be great! I know most of you won't be able to make it to the closed-door session, so just stay tuned for that... it should be out some time after the event.

New Yellowstone behind-the-scenes video up.

I recently put up a new video of how I shot three HDRs in Yellowstone. I have another, slightly longer video coming uo when I release the book about how I took another shot at Grand Prismatic. If you like these videos, let me know, and I'll do more!

New York Times article

There was a recent article in the New York Times about HDR Photography and Stuck In Customs. Go give it a read and be sure to give them your opinion! They have an open commenting system, and I am sure they would like to hear your opinion as much as I would!
