John McMurtrie is in an enviable place for any rock music photographer. As well as being regular shooter for Metal Hammer and Total Guitar, he’s also the official tour photographer for Iron Maiden. John has been kind enough to take a few questions about his work and the role of Lightroom in his work.

Hi John, thanks for joining us on Lightroom News. Did you get home for Christmas this year?
Absolutely! It is important to keep a balance between work and home life.
You’ve had quite a busy 2008, what would have been the highlights for you?
The Highlight of the year has to be the Iron Maiden tour on their private Boeing 757. 50,000 miles all around the world. Breathtaking locations and getting to listen to the greatest heavy metal band on the planet. On the first leg we went to Australia, south and central america, the US, Japan and India in 45 days. I shot over 35,000 pictures on this part of the tour.

Many moons ago, an Adobe knowledge base article that solved an issue for older video cards, introduced the concept of the config.lua file. The config.lua file is file Lightroom will look for on startup and apply settings from within to change behaviour within Lightroom. There is no list of commands for what you can put in there available to the public, but occasionally a Lightroom Team member will suggest something that might help with a problem, or that can help debug a problem.

A few weeks ago, Matthew Campagna from The Turning Gate, sent me a gallery link to look at, specifically via my iPod Touch. It looked wonderful and was very elegant, of course it elicited lots of questions and comments from me. In truth I was very impressed with it. This was a preview of the TTG iPhone Portfolio 1.0 gallery, and is now available to download.
The purpose of this web engine is to create an iPhone compatible gallery, which has all the bells and whistles of a normal web gallery.
