PSW Rocks Orlando

Its been an unbelievably busy three days here at the Photoshop World Conference in Orlando. I've met so many new friends and many fantastic photographers that I aspire to be more like. I've learned so much it will take the rest of the spring and probably summer to absorb it all. The conference opened up with a rock show followed by many talented speakers including Dr. Russell Brown, one of the early pioneers of Photoshop and an Adobe employee for 25 years and of course Mr. Scott Kelby himself. Many cool gags and videos followed.

It's after 1:00 AM on morning and I've just gotten out of the legendary Midnight Madness. What fun. Thanks Matt Kloskowski for sneaking me in. I had the priveledge of meetng Matt at one of Jeff Revell's photowalks two years ago and he's been a good friend, looking out for me at every turn while I'm here. I have many pics to post and share over the next few weeks. Here are just a few.
In class with the highly successful Zack Arias.

We went on an urban safari in Y'bor City, Tampa

You can almost smell the cigars!

Treated to flamenco dancers.

On a walkabout with National Geographic Photographer, author, instructor, comedian, and all around nice guy Joe McNally. You probably have seen many of his fabulous images in NG, Sports Illustrated, Life magazine and many other publications. THIS was a good day and one I won't forget. Joe is a master at his craft. I love this pic.

Whatever your level of photography you should seriously consider attending at least one conference. These people know how to have fun.....and you learn a bunch of cool stuff too.
