I wrote a long piece about Pinterest, sharing and the future of Photography on the Internet. It sparked a lively discussion! Read it and join the dialogue.

Along that same idea, I also wrote a post titled Go Ahead Steal This Photo and Make Prints about the different ways I make photos available for use and how to get beautiful, officially licensed, prints.

On Talent & Curiosity

Here's a blog post I wrote reflecting on my lovely dinner with Vic Gundotra, Senior Vice President of Engineering for Google.

New eBook: 321 Stop

Here's a new kind of eBook for you over at Most ebooks there, like my recent one about Photoshop, are photography-centric. This one is a bit different and more of a life-centric book. It has gotten great reviews, I hope you enjoy it!

3-2-1 Stop was written by Lorilee Lippincott and it's filled with over 80 pages of advice, experiences, and application from someone who has experienced the freedom and power of being a minimalist in a consumerist world.


HDR Video Tutorial now available on a USB Drive

My HDR Video Tutorial is hugely popular ... and it's also just huge! (Over 6 Gigabytes) I know that some of you lack the Internet speeds required to download something so big. And some have asked about a physical option that they could buy as a gift or have as a backup.

Well it's finally here! We now have a sleek 8GB USB drive that contains the entire tutorial. Order yours today!


Reminder: The Text HDR Tutorial is Always Free!

I keep a completely FREE HDR Tutorial on my website. It is a living document that continues to evolve over the years. It goes over everything you need to get started and is a great introduction to the basics of HDR photography and post processing.
