In Tampa for Imaging USA


Lots of interesting stuff going on today at Imaging USA. I'm going to sit in on a Seth Resnick talk, "Organizing: Asset Management in Lightroom." I haven't had a chance to listen to Seth since he's moved from his management system to Lightroom, so this should be fun to hear how one of the DAM masters leverages Adobe's latest photo software.

I'm also looking forward to Katrin Eismann's talk on "The Power of Camera Raw." Katrin has a new book out, The Creative Digital Darkroom that looks just great. I have a copy at home that I can't wait to dig in to.

And of course, the Expo opens today with lots of high profile exhibitors. I want to get my hands on the new Nikon D3. It looks terrific on paper.

I took this photo last night while walking home from dinner. There's plenty of water in Tampa, and it makes for good night shooting, especially when you get some interesting skies to boot. I used the Canon G9 resting on the railing of a bridge (yes, I held on to the strap). With the self-timer on, I manually set the exposure to 15 seconds at f-2.8 keeping the ISO to 80 to control the image noise. I then processed the picture in Adobe Lightroom.

Great looking shot!
Do you dare share the unprocessed image so we can get a sense of how you used Lightroom to finish this?

Great overview Derrick, and it's great to hear how you are using the G9 (beautiful sky and reflections). I have learned so much over the years from Seth and Katrin and look forward to hearing what goodies you find on the show floor! If you see anything particularly interesting in the world of inkjet printing (especially papers that really have an impact on you), it would be great to hear your thoughts. New papers are constantly being released and trade shows are such a great place to check them out.

All the best,
