Photoshop 3D Lighting for Photographers AND HDR Tip

Hi Folks

Hope you had a great weekend.

The past few days I’ve been a little quieter than normal on social media as I’ve been buried into the writing.

Deadlines are getting closer and I’m just finishing up the last couple of chapters and having seen the interior design of the book last week I can’t help feeling incredibly excited.

I’ll keep you updated as everything progresses but for today I wanted to share a video with you which is  a recent episode of Photoshop User TV with Corey Barker and RC Concepcion.

In this episode Corey goes through a great way to add 3D lighting into a 2D scene which is something I’m particularly interested in and RC goes through a workflow for organising and processing 32 bit HDR images.

A great episode and definitely worth a watch and a subscribe!

Enjoy and I’ll catch you back here next time.

Thank You for the Birthday Wishes :)

Hi Everyone

How’s it going?

Today I’d normally have a new episode of my weekly podcast / show online but seeing as my wife treated me to a trip away for a couple of days to celebrate my Birthday, I’ll have it online for you on Thursday.


So for now I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all the Birthday wishes yesterday on Social Media, email etc… overwhelming to say the least:)

You folks well and truly ROCK!!!
Catch you tomorrow,

Photoshop User Magazine: Hot 100 Tips Edition

Hey Everyone,

How’s it going?

Hope you had a good weekend, but geez did it go quick or what?!?

So, time to kick off the new week and today I’ve a magazine article to let you know about…

The latest issue of Photoshop User Magazine produced by KelbyOne is now available and this issue is the Hot 100 Tips Edition!


This years tips see contributions from Corey Barker, Pete Collins, RC Concepcion, Dave Cross, Yours Truly, Bryan O’Neil Hughes, Scott Kelby, Matt Kloskowski, Kristina Sherk and Colin Smith.


Photoshop User Magazine is available in stores (mainly US) but is also the magazine that goes out internationally in either hard or digital copy to members of KelbyOne.

I say it often but for good reason…when I first started using Photoshop I searched on Yahoo as it was at the time for Photoshop tutorials as I didn’t have a clue what to do and where to start. Anyway, long story short on the very first page of results the N.A.P.P. (now KelbyOne) showed up and on blind faith I became a member and have been one ever since.

So again from me a HUGE thanks to the folks at KelbyOne to whom I owe so many thanks; always an honour to contribute to the magazine that I first started learning from and continue to do so to this day.

Ok folks…much to do so have a good one and I’ll catch you back here next time.

Moose Peterson: Warbirds and The Men Who Flew Them

Hey Everyone,

Hope you’ve had a great week:)

Today before the weekend is upon us I wanted to let you know about an upcoming webinar with KelbyOne hosted by Moose Peterson and Scott Kelby.

Tonight (Friday) at 7pm EST (Midnight UK) will see the worldwide release of Warbirds and The Men Who Flew Them; a film that has been a long time project in the making by Moose Peterson and in partnership with KelbyOne.

Whilst out at Photoshop World Las Vegas we all got to see a sneak peek at what’s in store when Moose showed the trailer when he took to the stage at the closing ceremony and if that minute and half or so preview was anything to go by it’s going to be quite a ride.

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know and become friends with Moose over the past few years; great to hang out with, ever supportive and one heck of a photographer but on top of that a gift for telling stories through photography and his choice of accompanying music.

At each Photoshop World I’ve been at, seeing Moose on stage at the closing ceremony is always a powerful moment; never before had I felt emotional looking at landscape imagery but each time it just gets me!

I was chatting with Moose before he went on stage about this new film and even then I could see he was having to control his emotion; such is the power of the message and the story behind the film.

So in short I urge you to tune in and watch this webinar; it’s going to be something really special.

Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll catch you back here in a few days.
