Here are the six video submissions from the students Matthew Jordan Smith has selected to join him in Seattle. We can't wait to meet you! Thank you to everyone who submitted a video. This is going to be a fun weekend.
Yesterday on the blog my long-time co-host Susan Roderick announced her new exciting project – a show called the Unknown Photographer. Congratulations Susan, I’m so thrilled for the adventures that you are about to embark upon! You are an inspiration and I will miss you dearly.
Today I’d like to update everyone on how I’m stepping up my own role at creativeLIVE. In addition to chat hosting, blogging and social media, consider me now your creativeLIVE community shepherd of sorts. I’ll be seeking out guest bloggers and looking for cL groupies to be more engaged with our new cL Forum. Each of you is a cL ambassador and I want to build a platform for us all to learn from and be inspired by each other. How do you want to help grow the creativeLIVE community? Leave me your ideas in the Forum!

Tune in LIVE this Thursday, October 20th at 10am PDT for a special pre-workshop interview with Rick Sammon on creativeLIVE! Rick is arriving today in Seattle for this weekend’s free 3-day online Exploring the Light Workshop on creativeLIVE. In the past we’ve shown you a sneak peek while getting new sets ready with a live cam overhead the day before workshops begin. This time we have a special treat for you—Rick has so much energy we just can’t wait to get him in front of our live cameras!
A couple weeks ago we asked you to share your favorite business books with us on Facebook. We were impressed by the number of responses and decided to share the resulting reading list with all of you! On the list you'll find old school classics like Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends & Influence People to newer best sellers such as Poke the Box by Seth Godin. Please note that this list is a compilation of suggestions by YOU, our creativeLIVE community, and hasn't been curated by us - we're just the messenger.
If you haven’t already noticed, today there is a new website to enhance your creativeLIVE experience. We’ve made a number of layout and design upgrades and added several new features. Browse through the new features and please let us know what you think. Here’s a brief overview of some of the changes we’ve made:
The videos are coming in from people who want to join Matthew Jordan Smith in Seattle November 11-13. This is going to be an in-depth weekend focused on fashion and beauty photography. You still have time to create and submit YOUR video for a chance to learn from Matthew in person. The deadline is Monday, October 25th!
Want to join Matthew in person in Seattle? Here's how to submit your video to be chosen as one of the creativeLIVE studio participants:
1. Record a short video saying why you want to join Matthew in Seattle.
2. Post the video to your Blog, Facebook, etc.
3. Tweet the URL to @creativelive with the hashtag #mjsLIVE
If there is a fitting obituary for Steve, he helped craft it himself.
This unaired video hits me harder than anything else I've heard today. Before Richard Dreyfuss recorded the final version, Steve narrated the words for early drafts of the Think Different ad campaign himself. When the spot was first created, Steve spoke of how deeply it moved him.
This Friday October 7th David Nightingale kicks off his free live online 3-day Dramatic Post-Production Workshop on creativeLIVE. David is combining two of his most popular workshops for you. He’ll explore his process of Creating Dramatic Images from before he even picks up a camera to step-by-step examples of his post-production workflow. On day three David will teach us all about his HDR shooting & post-production techniques that range from subtle to edgy. Get ready to think about HDR in an entirely new way!
I asked David to share the before & afters of a few images that he’ll be referencing in the workshop. I thought it would be fun for all of YOU to try to deconstruct his processes before the workshop begins. So for each of the following sets of images I challenge you to post your answers to David’s questions in the comments below. Then you’ll have to wait to find out how David actually created these images during the workshop! How many can you get right?
