I was in Bangkok in December when I received an email from Adobe asking if I wanted to be in promotional video for the new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 premiere. Of course! Lightroom has helped my digital workflow in so many ways: editing, cataloging, RAW processing, web pages, and now creating books and maps.

Adobe had also featured me in 2008 on the Adobe website for another Lightroom launch; and it was so much fun to work with them. Naturally, I was extremely honored that they considered me for the latest promo. I am one of Lightroom’s biggest fans and teach Lightroom weekend seminars, when possible, for Jerry Courvoiser’s weekend Lightroom workshops www.lightroomworkshops.com

I returned to Santa Fe a week before the fabulous crew from eMotion Studios arrived in January to film in my “cozy” 2-storey Santa Fe pyramid. Winter is not the loveliest time of the year in Santa Fe but at least it didn’t storm and howl, too much, for the two days they were filming. They interviewed me in my house, and my “Grayroom” (where I do all my digital work… yes the walls are 18% gray), and also on location at Tesuque Glassworks.

I am honored to be on the Adobe website and I hope all of you visit it and, natch, upgrade or begin using LIGHTROOM 4. Remember, Lightroom is only in its adolescence, so it behooves you to stay up to date. You may moan that it doesn’t have “this” or why did they do “that”, however it is a GREAT program. Have patience Grasshopper, it is evolving. LR4 is still cheaper than Photoshop and it is designed for you.. the photographer. Embrace the wonderful evolving world of digital photography! It is so exciting!

Lightroom 3 is finally out! I am proud to be one of the four experts for Lightroom Workshops 2-day Intensive Workshops that are being offered nation-wide — perhaps in your hometown (or nearby).

Adobe Lightroom allows users to download, organize, manage, develop, and present digital photography using their own laptops. It is considered essential for today’s digital photography workflow.

Lightroom Workshops are led by Jerry Courvoisier, digital maven extraordinaire; George Jardine, one of the original Adobe Lightroom team members; Michael Clark, internationally published extreme sports and outdoor photographer; and Nevada Wier, award-winning photographer specializing in documenting the remote corners and cultures of the globe.

You can see a full list of the cities at www.lightroomworkshops.com (see the jump for a Summer Special)

I will be teaching the weekend workshops (more may be added):

Aug. 7 – 8         Santa Barbara, CA

Sept 18 – 19     Boulder, CO

Founder Jerry Courvoisier, “My colleagues and I offer the best value and most information in this field: a serious 2-day hands-on workshop for just $395. Our workshops offer an experiential, personalized, interactive approach to learning. Participants bring their laptops with the current version of Lightroom 3 installed and we dig in straight away with practical applications for the software and workflow time-saving tips. We like to say, ‘You’ll learn by doing, then walk away knowing.’ This approach is essential to personalizing your own digital workflow.”
