Tuesday Tidbits


– TravelMuse is sponsoring a new photo contest for the month of March.  This month’s contest is entitled Urban Endeavor.  The winner of the contest will receive an Eye-Fi Explore SD card that lets you send wirelessly upload your images directly from the SD card (very cool).  The TOC for this contest is pretty cut and dry and very photographer friendly.  The winners keep all rights to their photos, just giving TravelMuse the right to use them for their site.  By the way, if you are going to Photoshop World, you need to check out their site this month which features the city of Boston.  To find out how to enter your images and to read all the rules, click here.

– Speaking of Boston, I was reading the Photoshop World Blog and saw that there is another photowalk being held the week of Photoshop World in Boston.  This event is being sponsored by the folks in the NAPP Forums and takes place on Thursday night starting at 7:30 at the entrance to the Hynes Convention Center.  They have a lot of great sites staked out for their walk including the very cool Stata Center over at MIT.  I photographed it last year when I was in Boston and it truly has to be seen to be believed.  The photowalk is open to everyone so grab your coat and your tripod and then click here to get all the necessary info.

– Also today, the second episode of Nikon DTown is up and ready for viewing.  This week’s episode has some really cool camera tips including a live HDR shoot with Matt Kloskowski.  Here’s a little tip for you, Matt has added a bonus video on the DTown site that shows you how to combine the images in Photomatix.  This isn’t in the regular episode so you are going to want to check in to the show page.  Also, there is a nice video from Moose Peterson that runs through some of the processing capabilities of the Nikon Capture NX software. It’s definitely worth a look.

– Finally, I was checking out some of my blog stats (it’s just something we blog writers like to do) and I saw where visitors to my site had been referred by The College of Southern Nevada.  Well you know I just had to check it out.  When I followed the link I ended up on the Digital Photographic Imaging 2 course page.  This is where all of the assignments for the class.  There in week 9, I found a link to my Processing HDR images in Photoshop tutorial listed under the reference materials.  How cool is that.  So if you happened to find your way here from the CSN page, welcome and please feel free to drop a comment or ask a question.

That’s all for today.  Hasta Luego.
