edit: holy **** it looks soft. uhh, maybe i'll upload it to flickr.

I really like the picture, I just think she is too dark. Awesome background! She blends in too dark with the background. Cool shot!

Ummmm......yeah....sor​ry. I just got so excited that night and didn't think about it.

YES my order was just confirmed!!!! I went with the boxed set so I wouldnt have to worry about finding the files or downloading 22gb's worth of programs. Itll probably be a while before it arrives.

My wife works in a school and its been 6 days since I ordered. :) Ive been using Photoshop CS which is to old to upgrade to CS5 or the new CS6. And lately ive really noticed the limitations of my version, mostly due to the ram caps.

I went for the production one since it comes with everything I could possibly want and then some. With all our baby movies my wife is really going to enjoy premiere. :) The only problem will be learning to use all this, im sure theres been more than a few changes in photoshop in the last 8 years. :D

That would have been nice to share Tiff. Some of us are married to teachers. ;)

There was a long thread regarding this deal/mistake in the Market Watch forum. I missed it by a couple of hours - got to keep your eyes open!


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

I visit slickdeals.net once or twice a day. The hottest deals are on the front page. You can find deals by going through the forum but that takes time, but your odds of getting in on the hottest deals before they are sold out are drastically increased. :)

Some people were able to get lightroom 3 for something like $14 with that 80% off the edu version. It would be sweet if photoshop releases the newest version soon enough for us to get in on the free upgrade guarantee they have. but im not counting on that one. :)

Great work CT!...nice studio!....a few questions: Can you shed some "light" on your backdrop systems, brand, where you bought it, how they're setup...and do the vertical support in the center use poles going from floor to ceiling. Is the support system on the left side use the staggered brackets?...where 'd you get them? Thanks!

Manfrotto 032SET Auto Pole Background Support Set, Two Chrome Upright Poles below:

IMAGE: http://i43.tinypic.com/2zsu4au.jpg


Manfrotto 0456 Background Holder Hooks, holds 6 Backgrounds $58.90 these are the ones on the wall.. attached to the wall and won't allow you to back light very well because your on the wall..

http://www.adorama.com …m_campaign=1poi​nt0product (external link)


Manfrotto 046 Expan Background Paper Drive Set with Red Plastic Drive Chain $57.00 this helps drive the drops up and down.. a requirement with this manfrotto system

http://www.adorama.com …m_campaign=1poi​nt0product (external link)

Manfrotto 032SET Auto Pole Background Support Set, Two Chrome Upright Poles (#2950) $174.90 this allows me to be flexible and can move this around anywhere in my studio. i got this because i wanted the flexibility to put lights behind the backdrop or side back light a subject with a snoot or grid..

http://www.adorama.com …_campaign=2poin​t0Product7 (external link)

Manfrotto 0472 9' Alu-Core, Aluminum Core for Uncored 107" Seamless Paper (#2922) $44.90 used to hold the backdrops up, and is light weight and works seemlessly into the manfrotto system..

http://www.adorama.com …_campaign=2poin​t0Product7 (external link)


here is the long side view of big wall in the studio.. i used 4 brackets to hold up 3 total back drops that are 9 feet wide each.. this allowed me to maximize my step.

and finally an image from all of this..

My mind fights back and forth over the same thing. Sometimes I wish subject's faces were lighter. On the other hand, if it's the evening, more light on the face, like flash, seems like it might take away from the the way the evening felt.

Maybe double versions is the way to go.

:cool:

Hey Everyone

Thought you might enjoy this. New stuff thats gonna be in Photoshop CS6. Take a look at sneak peek 4:eek:. There is also some tutorials from Laura Shoe on how to use some of the lightroom features. Looks like lightroom 4 is going to be a great upgrade for those using lightroom. Your going to be able to do amazing things with the control panels and the adjustment brushes....you can now brush in White balance affects where ever you might need it.....gonna be pretty cool stuff

Sneak Peek #4 is amazing
