Check out the latest PDN/National Geographic World in Focus Competition to see my winning image and some great photography!
I am excited to announce the winner of my second reader-gift giveaway, an Apple Pro Training Series book that covers the ins and outs of Apple’s flagship photo editing application, Aperture 3. It was easy to enter the drawing–I asked readers simply to leave a comment sharing what camera they use. Responses ranged the gamut from Nikon D700 to Canon 40D–there was even an iPhone thrown into the mix! I think everybody had a good time connecting with one another and learning what cameras their peers are using. Thank you to everybody who joined in the fun. Are you the winner? In the following two-minute video, my Studio Manager announces who was selected for this reader gift.
I will be offering more reader gifts in the coming months, so there’s further opportunity to connect with other photographers for the chance to win some goodies. Have a great week!
Aperture 3 is a powerful, indispensable tool for photographers who want to take their body of work to the next level. From its hyper-precision retouching to its advanced face-recognition archiving system, Aperture 3 is Apple’s flagship photo editing application. While Aperture might be for everybody from fashion to sports photographers, its use isn’t exactly intuitive. That’s where this Apple Pro Training Series book comes in handy. I am excited to announce that next Monday, August 23 I’m giving away this fantastic publication to–well–you!It’s a cinch. Just leave a comment below, telling me what make and model of camera you use. Can’t get enough of your Canon? Think your Nikon is nifty? Let me know! I’m curious to learn what makes you tick…and even more excited to share this Apple Pro Training Series: Aperture 3 gift with you!
This photo was taken at Burning Man in 2008. I have attended for five years now, and throughout the week-long arts-and-culture festival in the Black Rock Desert, I wade among the 50,000+ people in attendance, searching for interesting faces. I stumbled upon this girl by chance, compelled by the sense of kinetic energy in her body position. I felt as if she were about to dash off into the vast expanse of the desert. The early morning light only energized the visual moment–the light provided a sense of both time and place, resulting in psychological motion.
