Happy New Year

General News Uncategorized

It’s been a interesting year on Lightroom Blog, not to mention for me personally in regards to Lightroom. I’ve published a commercial set of presets, along with a Lightroom Web Engine. I’ve tech edited a Lightroom 2 How-Tos for Chris Orwig (happy new year Chris!), and his Photoshop CS4 book! My own book is in the hands of the publisher (a commissioned book). I have ideas for a book I want to write, actually the first idea for a book I had all along. We’ll see if 2009 can make that happen!

I’ve spent a lot of time being a Moderator for Adobe Lightroom Help, and for Lightroom Forums (where I lend a hand when I can).

I’ve also been working on various aspects of brushing up my coding, to create more web engines. I’m currently studying Javascript, with a PHP book sitting in the wings on my tech reading list. I do have a rather large pile of ‘to read’ books! Currently it’s Real World Color Management by Fraser, Murphy and Bunting. I have a good understanding of colour management, but I felt the need to read this, to flesh out what I know, and be able to say I read it! On that list are Seth Resnick and Jamie Spritzer ‘The Photoshop Lightroom Workbook‘, and ‘Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2‘ by David Huss.

The credit crunch is affording me more time off as venues are only running weekends gigs, so I’ve more reading and shooting time.
For 2009 I’ll continue to do videos and tips here, and on Lightroom News. Relating to video, it’s funny that when I’m recording, I’m running very close to clipping the audio input, yet I get a complaint that I’m too quiet. I guess there is no winning. Maybe it’s time for a hard limiter so my voice is louder than your CD ;). As always suggestions for topics are welcome via the Skribit bar on the right. Yes I do look at them and I do plan on using them for future tips.
I plan on continuing the interviews for Lightroom News, I’ve enjoyed them, and would love to do a few more (I’m putting together another one soon).
Anyhow, thanks for dropping by in 2008, and I look forward to seeing you again throughout 2009!

  1. It’s been a very productive year for Lightroom, and you’ve definitely been hard at it, keeping busy. I might be the only one commenting so far, but I’m sure I’m not the only one that appreciates the time you’ve put into the community. Happy new year, Sean, and best wishes for 2009.
