Big Things Are Happening

While I can't talk too much about it yet because the deal is still being worked out, but last week I got a very interesting direct message on Twitter that led to a few emails and eventually a really cool conference call about a project...

Photoshopping and the Media – A Conversation with a High School Freshman

Back in early April, I was approached by a high school freshman who was working on a paper about the role of Photoshop and photo manipulation in the media – both news and otherwise – and how that affects self-image in young people. I was, of course, glad to help out and below is how I responded to her questions about my views on the subject and how I make my own decisions with regards to Photoshop and image retouching. It’s kind of a stream of consciousness and could certainly be expanded upon, so please bear with my jumping around.

Friday Photo News & Updates

I’d like to start off by thanking everyone who responded to Wednesday’s post about continuing to build our Photoshop & Photography Community. I truly appreciate you taking the time to share a little bit of your stories with everyone. If you haven’t shared yet, please do! I’d love to hear from as many of you as possible!

There is a lot going on over the next couple of weeks through the beginning of May – personally, here on the blog, and across the digital imaging industry.

Photoshop & Photography Community

First off, I’d like to wish my beautiful wife, Kim, a very Happy Engagement Anniversary! In the wee hours of April 7, 2007 after returning home from Photoshop World in Boston, Kim surprised me at my apartment to welcome me home. We spent the next several hours talking and when I presented her with my grandmother’s wedding ring, she and I decided to spend the rest of our lives together. Now, 3 years later, we have a very happy marriage, a house, an awesome puppy, and our first little one on his way at anytime.

Thank you Kim, for loving me the way you do and for sharing this adventure with me! I am truly blessed! I Love You!

(NOTE: This post was intended to be posted last week, but there was an error between the seat and the keyboard, later found to be an Id10-T problem, when scheduling. My apologies.)

Ever since I refocused my online presence towards Photoshop and digital photography back in 2006 with the Photoshop & Photography Blogroll, one of my main goals was to develop a community of creative people who would participate in projects and contests, offer tips and tutorials, and simply engage one another as we each develop our craft.
