Memorial Day Tribute

Thank you to all the men and women past and present for keeping our country safe. Thank you daddy (Vietnam) and grandaddy (WWII) for keeping our legacy going. I wish we could all just get along BUT until then I salute all the brave men and women that have put their lives on the line for our way of living.

Down and Dirty Tricks with Adobe Photoshop CS4 seminar

May 10, 2009 2 comments

Friday, May 8, 2009 I attended the Down & Dirty Tricks Photoshop CS4 seminar at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The initial cost for the seminar was $99 but I received a discount for being a member of National Association of Photoshop Professionals and early registration, which brough my total down to $69. The seminar was from 10 am – 5pm. The key presenter was Scott Kelby himself. This was my first time attending a Photoshop seminar by Scott Kelby.

I thought the price was really cheap and knew I would learn a few things BUT walked away with a wealth of knowledge. Far more than I could have ever imagined.

The seminar outline was as follows

* layers and compositing techiniques
* designing with type
* Photoshop down & dirty tricks
* Photoshop killer tips
* Tricks of the Trade

Any of the above would have been worth the $99 cover charge.

I highly recommend this seminar when it comes to a town near you.

Canon 5D Mark II

My Canon 5D Mark II arrived today.  I am charging the battery and perusing the owner’s manual.  Tomorrow is going to be a GREAT day of shooting.

So far, I am impressed with the way the camera feels in my hand.

Stay tuned for new photos.
