Yesterday I went to a Photography trade show. Scott Kelby was the big draw. He seems like such an approachable down to earth guy.

I got to play with the new Cintiq. Which was really cool. While I was waiting in line for my turn I thought working without shortcuts would be problematic but it was a non-issue. It would be terrific to actually work on the image. It was very difficult to hand over the stylus to the next person in the queue.

The show was full of wedding...

there must be a better way

I've been watching tons of tutorials over the last week on how and why to retouch. I think the perfect teacher would have the following qualities;

Philosophy of Chris Orwig (most definitely a favorite)
breadth of knowledge of Deke McClelland (he's amazingly thorough)
and the voice of Colin Smith (I can listen to him endlessly)

Notes on changing to a Mac.
The magic mouse can be programmed to have a right click. Woot!

There's good...

Windows > Mac

I guess I should chronicle my switch from windows to Mac here.

Why a Mac? DH was behind on a 50th birthday present and a 30th wedding anniversary present and the local shop ran an amazing 3 day sale. So he told me it was now or never. They were clearing things out for an end January inventory count we suspect.

First of all the dinky keyboard, isn't. It's really slick. I type with all my fingers and it's a joy. I haven't really gotten the shortcuts for cut and paste...

I've read so many books lately I dont know where to start in altering my workflow. I do realize that the best tool for the job is the one you know.

I've been playing with Google Earth and SketchUp. And while it's really cool that I can type in my street address and get an eagle's eye view;

It's also rather creepy in a big-brother-is-watching-you...
