Happy Friday! Yesterday, some of the guys at NAPP and I sat down for a live chat about Photoshop World. Before you read any further, this video is really only useful for people that are either A) going to Photoshop World, or (even more so) B) thinking about going to Photoshop World. If you are, then you’re about to invest a decent amount of money in Photoshop and photography education. We know that and we’ve seen a lot of questions over the last few weeks from people wondering just what to expect from the conference.
It’s not a quick video. We said 15-20 minutes in the beginning but it turned out to be almost 30 minutes by the time we were done. If you have no desire to go to Photoshop World then you’ll be bored to death and you should definitely skip this one. But if you are going, or thinking of going, I think this could be one of the best things you could watch this weekend when you have a few extra minutes.
The early bird discount of $100 ends this weekend. While you can still sign up right until the day of the conference, you’ll save yourself $100 if you do it soon. Either way, I hope you’ll consider putting Photoshop World on your to do list soon. Thanks everyone and have a great weekend!
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a photo I took while in Boston. It got a lot of great feedback, but there was one thing that I didn’t like in the photo (and it was confirmed by some comments here on the blog). At first, I was kinda lazy and thought it would be a pain to get rid so I didn’t bother. But then I sat down to give it a go and it only ended up taking me a few minutes. So… first, the before and after photo. Just click the little right arrow button to see the difference (it’s a small change by the way).
The thing that bothered me (and some of you) is that the boat along the dock, and the bridge on the left look like they’re being held up by the pilings in the water. So I decided to fix it. And while I was at it, I figured rather than write about it here, I’d just do a quick video of what I did. Also, if you’re a NAPP member I posted the video there, along with the image to download and try out if you’d like. Enjoy!
Hey NAPP members, just wanted to let you know that my latest tutorial is live on the NAPP site (here’s the link). It’s another Before/After tutorial where I actually took a photo from my portfolio and showed everything I did to it from scratch. The idea behind these is that we start with the Raw file – no changes, right out of the camera. I’ve gotten a lot of requests to do Lightroom tutorials for NAPP, so we’re starting off in Lightroom’s Develop module (which is exactly the same as Camera Raw by the way) and then we’ll head in to Photoshop to finish things off. Enjoy!
