Dont know if anyone else saw it – but another of my Landscape photographs ‘Cloud Warp’ taken in the Yarra Valley in Victoria was featured on the ABC news in the weather segment both last night and this evening.
Those of you who follow my blog will know that I am a big fan of Nick Brandt’s African wildlife photography. I recently attended his current exhibition at Source Photographica in Melbourne; which was truly amazing and inspirational. If you have the opportunity to see any of Nick’s work I highly recommend taking the time to do so.
The cost of ownership of most of Nick’s limited edition prints unfortunately places them out of reach of many (myself included); which is a shame as the prints truly are beautiful. However, the next best thing has just been announced with his new Limited Edition signed Artists book coming this September. The book is now available for Pre-order from Source Photographica in Melbourne – I have of course immediately ordered a copy. There are 1000 copies available in Australia and 3000 worldwide and I would expect these to sell out very quickly.
I am on the road, so can’t verify by downloading (as I am on the iPhone) but it looks like Lightroom 3 is now available for download. Would love it if someone could download the trial and see if they have added in softproofing and leave me a comment.
Lightroom 3 Download
EDIT - I have just got back to the office and can now verify that unfortunately soft-proofing has not made it into Lightroom 3.0. This is very disappointing for me as it means continually having to round trip my photographs through Photoshop for soft-proofing before going back to Lightroom for Print. No doubt an Adobe conspiracy to get me to upgrade to CS5… Nevertheless there are some very welcome new features in Lightroom 3.0 and the upgrade is certainly worthwhile.
