Earlier, in March this year, George Jardine from Adobe and Jeff Schewe came over to London to help document a fashion photo shoot that I shot specifically for the next revision of my Lightroom book. The background to this is that the publisher, Peachpit and myself thought it would be a good idea to carry out a studio photo shoot in which I could use the photographs that were taken on the day to illustrate a complete Lightroom workflow, using the latest version of the program. As well as capturing some great looking images, I also hoped to find a new cover image for the book, and in addition to this, Adobe have also requested to use some of these pictures as demo assets for Lightroom and other Adobe product presentations. Incidentally, the finished book will now be ready to go on sale as soon as Lightroom 2 officially ships.
You can find out more about the shoot itself by checking out the video George Jardine made while he was in London, which shows the progress of the shoot from concept, through to model casting and creating the finished looks. There is also a separate video podcast that George produced which shows me going through the pictures at the editing stage and discussing which shots worked best and why.
