Photographer Joe McNally Comes To Phoenix For Kelby Traning

Professional photography Joe McNally is coming to Phoenix for the Kelby Training seminar Location Lighting Techniques on Tuesday December 7th.  This full day workshop includes Off Camera Flash Essentials, Multiple Flash Steps, Great Portraits with Multiple Flash, Unleashing Power of Flash, and Bringing out the Big Guns. 

I’ve been to several Kelby Training workshops as they visit the desert (mostly in the Winter – hey they’re clever!) and have enjoyed every one.  As a NAPP member these are so worth the 79 bucks.  Not only do you get great training, the speakers are available for questions inbetween sessions, NAPP and on-site vendors provide discounts to their great products, and there are thousands of dollars in giveaways. 

I have Joe McNally’s book “The Moment It Clicks” and watched his many training videos on the Kelby Training website.  I am really looking forward to this seminar and expect to learn a lot.

OnOne DSLR Camera Remote For The iPad Coming in December

OnOne is also planning on expanding their popular DSLR Camera Remote application for the iPad.  Currently available for the iPod Touch and iPhone, this application allows the remote triggering of select Nikon and Canon DSLRs from these mobile devices.  Adjust settings, capture images and view them on the iPad.  The size of the iPad display will make this one helluva cool thing to utilize.

A new, separate version of DSLR Camera Remote specifically designed just for the iPad takes full advantage of the larger screen on the iPad. With DSLR Camera Remote HD for iPad, the ability to start, stop and monitor video from your DSLR camera is included at no additional charge.

DSLR Camera Remote HD is expected to be available in the iTunes App Store in December 2010.

OnOne Release New Perfect Photo Suite

If you own a copy of Plug-In Suite 5 from OnOne you are entitled to a free upgrade to their new product Perfect Photo Suite 5.5.  OnOne has updated the popular plug-in package with a reworking of the Genuine Fractals application called Perfect Resize 7.  This new application allows for better enlargements with little or no loss of image quality.  One new feature I like is the ability to crop to specific sizes during the enlargement process such as 16x20 or larger.  You can also adjust a variety of effects within Perfect Resize 7PhotoTools has been updated to 2.6 and create album layouts with PhotoFrame 4.6.  This is a feature I can’t wait to start using.  Many of these updates can be utilized as stand-alone products and not just plug-ins.

OnOne also announced that in early 2011 they will release Perfect Layers which will add layers capabilities to Lightroom and Aperture.  I’ve been using these products for a while now and not even to their fullest potential.  There is a lot of power in this suite and it's worth every penny. 
OnOne also offers hundreds of free add-ins and presets.  Get more information using the link below.
