Thomas Hawk gets schooled at Photoshop

The third Photowalking is now up on ScobleShow. Part II is here. This is actually not a “walking” one, but we sit down in my home office (Thomas says it’s my mansion, but it really isn’t) with Jan Kabili, who produces the excellent Photoshop Online TV and has written a ton of popular Photoshop books. She teaches Thomas a whole bunch of things about Adobe Photshop and how to use it to make your photography better (the techniques discussed will work with pretty much any photo editing tool). If you’re using a digital SLR, this is one hour that’ll make your photo workflow a lot better.

More on this Photowalking over on Thomas Hawk’s blog.

UPDATE: Congrats to Flickr on adding a new feature today where you can see what camera made the images you’re looking at. That’ll come in useful. But I wonder if it’ll properly track the camera that Flickr’s community manager was using today (Heather Champ was using a Polariod).

  1. being able to see what kind of camera took the shot isn’t a new feature… it’s been included in the ‘additional information’ for photos on Flickr for a while now (that’s how I tell when my friends get new cameras!)

    I haven’t seen the Camera Finder section before tho’. It looks pretty commercial, for Flickr, but it is really intersting to see all the information aggregated together in the graphs and which cameras the community prefers :)

  3. That new page on Flickr is quite impressive, I was hoping I’d see something like that turn up on Zooomr before long, hopefully still will – it’s really useful when buying a camera to see quickly how others are managing with it by the photos they’ve taken.

    Since seeing Thomas’s post on the new Photoshop ‘photowalk’ I’ve been looking forward to seeing these videos – so I’ll definitely be downloading them.

[...] Robert Scoble, producer of The Scoble Show, has posted Part 1 and Part II of the Photoshop lessons I recently gave photographer Thomas Hawk at Scoble’s house in Half Moon Bay.  These videos show how to apply some of the principles I’ve been teaching you here to Hawk’s photographs. We talk about shooting RAW, using Adobe Bridge with Photoshop, and some practical techniques for correcting photos in Photoshop.This is part of Scoble’s Photowalking series at Podtech. Other shows in this series feature Hawk shooting photographs on walks with Scoble in the Bay Area. There’s more on the Photoshop lesson adventure here and at Hawk’s blog. [...]
