I am posting the Topaz Labs Webinar I did earlier last month just in case you may have missed the live recording.  It was a pleasure working with Topaz Labs on this Webinar.  I have to be honest, I was very nervous at first, I mean wouldn’t you be?  A live Webinar in front of 847 people across the world.  It was a bit nerve-racking the first couple of minutes.

Usually when I record tutorials they go something like this, “Hello everyone welcome to EverydayHDR (Awkward pause, my name is Blaaaaaaaa…. UGH!” and then I re-record it.  This usually happens for about the first 5 or six recordings, and then I make weird noises, like the time Jim Carey made Steve Carell look like an ass on camera in Bruce Almighty.  Then I re-record it after my mouth muscles have been stretched a bit.

I couldn’t really do that with the Webinar for Topaz Labs.  If I messed up I couldn’t really get away with calling myself obscenities and then re-record it.  It was a one time good deal!  I had plenty of time to prep though, as you can see by the crazy amount of note cards taped to my monitor!

In the end I think it went very well and I am looking forward to doing it again.  Next time, I won’t be so nervous at the start!  I am going to work with Topaz about the sound, not sure if it is my equipment or something with the recording software, or maybe it was the tin can I was speaking into… hmm?!?

Most people think I am passionate about Photography, but in reality I am not.


Wait, before you freak out, you are on a photo site, I am addicted to post processing. To be more specific, I am addicted to workflow efficiency and cracking the codes to complex systems. That's what I do here, crack the code to photo post processing and present it in a concise way, for you :)
