OK, dekeOlytes. I’m unlocking the Channels & Masks cage, and getting ready to escape to NYC to attend that photo-palooza known as PhotoPlus Expo at the Javitz Center. Just wanted you to know that I’ll be suffering through handling all the new camera toys, talking to all the cool photographers, and drinking all the Officially-Made-in-Manhattan Manhattans, just for you—those dekeOpolitans who like to occaissionally take pictures as well as manipulate them into aliens, monsters, and other expressions of psychological disturbance. I’ll report back on anything super-groovy.
If you’re going to the show, please come by the O’Reilly booth (especially on Saturday when I am on official duty) and say hi. I’m hearing that there will be some new books making their debut there this week, including a special preview of the only-other-Photoshop-book-you-could-possibly-need-besides-Deke’s, the Photoshop CS4 Companion for Photographers by our good friend Derrick Story, which covers both more (the photographer’s workflow with Bridge/ACR) and less (just the Photoshop tools photographers need) than our beloved One-on-One. It fits in your camera bag too.
