5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Photoshop

Today, I’m presenting “5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Photoshop” at the Utah chapter of the American Society for Training and Development. Rather than focus strictly on Photoshop, or geek out about esoteric features, the presentation includes a high-level discussion on best practices for visual communication along with a series of short, essential Photoshop […]

Awesome! Eddie Obeng: Smart Failure For A Fast-Changing World

This 10 minute video is awesome! It’s well worth your time to watch. “We spend our time responding rationally to a world we understand and recognize, but no longer exists.”

Google Plus Hangout with David H. Wells

Fellow Olympus Visionary photographer David H. Wells joined me for a Google + hangout to discuss the transition from still to multimedia photography.

dSLR Video Stabilization/Captain Stubling Review

Recently I shot the legendary Wastach 100, a footrace held on rugged terrain in Utah’s backcountry.

While I’ve always found it immensely rewarding to be able to remove the technical […]

Apple Going Semi-Pro?

It’s been a tough couple of weeks for die-hard Final Cut users. They feel betrayed and abandoned. And rightfully so. FCP was a tool they’d spent hundreds, if not thousands, of hours working with and now Apple effectively shut them out of moving forward without any warning. I won’t go through the gory details as […]

PEN E-P3: A Whole New PEN

In preparation for the launch of the new Olympus PEN cameras, I got to test the PEN E-P3. What I found was that this new PEN is much more than a new model in the PEN series. Rather, it’s a new generation of PEN camera that, to me, marks the maturity of the PEN system […]

Adobe Premiere Pro Blue Render Bug

After pulling my hair out for the better part of a month, I think I’ve finally identified the steps to trigger a bug affecting After Effects, Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder and, steps to work around it. The Problem: When exporting videos from Adobe Premiere Pro that contain a rendered clip (like a title […]
