For years I had been shooting with Canon DSLR systems. I was happy with the image quality from my 5D Mark II but always struggled to accept the large size, weight and cost of the components of this system.
I wanted a system that was small, light and portable because I travel frequently and carry my camera with me everywhere.
But for a long time, I couldn’t find a small system that offered the capabilities I needed, especially when it came to the quality of the captured images.
That has all changed with the latest offerings from Sony.
In the last few weeks I’ve had the great pleasure of attending and presenting at two superb photography events: Vermont Professional Photographers annual convention (http://vtprophoto.org/) and the Moab Photo Symposium (http://www.moabphotosym.com).
In Vermont I was on the jury panel of the PPA competition at the state level, and presented a full day workshop on workflow with Lightroom and Photoshop. In Moab, I did two small, hands-on digital printing workshops; one using Photoshop and on with Lightroom; plus a presentation to the full group about the overall digital photo workflows based on Lightroom with a bit of Photoshop.
While I was traveling between these trade shows I had little time to blog, tweet, chat etc but now that I’m back home in Colorado I wanted to thank the wonderful people who invited me to these important events promoting the art and craft of photography.
If you’re in the area (or OK with travel) I can recommend both of these events to any photographer serious about developing their skills and professional connections within the industry.
I’ve been very happy with my LaCie 321 for the past few years but now am lusting for a monitor with full Adobe RGB coverage. Here’s one from NEC that looks really nice and I think is very reasonably priced:
