Just had a conversation with my buddy Bill today. Both of us noted with wry satisfaction and a collective sigh of relief that we seemed to have dodged the current economic bullet by both continuing to endeavor in that relentlessly upbeat, growth area of the American marketplace, print media. Whew! And, as Bill reminded me, I needn’t fret over the future of McNally Photography, or, as he has been wont to call it, McNallyCo International. In his words, “Don’t worry about your company, Joe. Its just too big to let fail.”
Dang, I feel better already!
Speaking of print media, I shot the October cover of the Geographic. Story on Neanderthals. As I mentioned to my editor, they got the right man for that job. More tk on the mysterious land inside the yellow border.
In Prague right now, one of my favorite places. Rolling through NY this weekend and will see the inside of Kennedy Airport only on my hop to Santa Fe, where I start teaching for the Geographic this Sunday. Always look forward to the Expeditions Workshop–lots of nice folks hanging about for a week, talking and shooting pix.
Teaching with my bud Jerry Courvoisier, who just came out with a new book, Lessons in DSLR Workflow with Lightroom and Photoshop.
Check out his podcast here.
Ya know, I tried to get Jer to jazz up the title a little. LESSONS FROM THE EDGE: SCREAMS IN THE PHOTOSHOP NIGHT! Or, DIE, DIE, LITTLE PIXEL! Or, even better, become the Russ Meyer of post with, FASTER PUSSYPIXEL, KILL, KILL!
But no. Anyway, its a corker, and definitely listen to the podcast. He knows his stuff.
My buddy Jay Mann, who shoots great stuff while he labors in midst of the geology and the oil of the Middle East, wrote in, curious about the highlight on Tom’s face in our backyard studio.
Can’t say with absolute certainty, but methinks its a bit of flash blowback from the MRI on the lower left, the lighter scan without alot of black area. seems logical, given the orientation of it on Tom’s face. Liked it, so let it stay. One of those happy accidents you tell your editor you planned:-)
The red and green tape on my SB800 units….used to make sense. We had some running on rechargeables, and others on straight up batteries. The tape told ‘em apart. Now they’re all on recharge type bats, and the tape lingers. For, oh, about a year now. I’m on top of it, I tell ya…..more tk.
