Red Bull in My Airport Security! What Do I Do!?!

So there I was wrapping up my first class at Photoshop World in Vegas.  I was excited for the next few days.. and jittery over the amount of Red Bull i was drinking.  I was carrying all of my gear (pictured here) PLUS my Macbook Pro and a Wacom Intuos5 Medium tablet wrapped in a Thinktank Airport Security V2 Bag.   As I hurried to close my bag to get to the next class, I placed my closed can of Red Bull inside the compartment and quickly shut the zipper.…

Working with the Nikon D800

Back when I was in Photoshop World DC, I got a chance to hang out with Richard Harrington of Rhed Pixel.  As we were getting ready to do some videos on the release of Photoshop CS6 Beta, a package showed up at the door.  Richard grabbed the box and brought it into the office beaming.  Inside it is the new Nikon D800.  I was really excited to finally be able to see it and put it through its paces.

After spending some time shooting with the camer, both at Photoshop World and back here in Tampa, There were a couple of thoughts mulling about in the head that I wanted to get down on  paper.

Oh, I’ll Just Get the D800.

Right up until the run up to the D4 and D800, I had a flurry of D300/D700 people excited about the step up to the full frame set of cameras.  Before the D800  the conversation was easy – if you dont have the money to plunk down, get yourself a D700.  D3 sensor – not the D3 price.  This gave you great ISO, and a good all around started Full Frame sensor package (obviously a lot more coin than being on the DX side of things)
