Another day, another great Photoshop learning experience. I tried to catch as many classes as possible yesterday but as usual there was always something that I couldn’t get to. That’s both the beauty and the frustration of Photoshop World. You can tailor your class schedule to suit your exact needs but there are so many different classes to choose from that you always feel like you are missing out on something just because you can’t be in two places at the same time. Yesterday I caught classes from Joe McNally (Big Light from Small Flashes), Jack Reznicki (Seeing the Light), Scott Kelby (Designing with Type), Matt Kloskowski (Photoshop Restoration Rescue), and Rod Harlan (Using Media in Social Media Marketing). The last class was interesting because Rod, who is a long-time friend, used my blog, Twitter, and Facebook experience for his class to demonstrate how social media can be used for spreading your brand across multiple social media outlets. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed sharing my experience with the class.
I also spent a lot of time on the Expo floor, checking out all of the vendors and catching some classes on the show floor. It’s amazing how much teaching goes on here at PSW. A couple of the classes that I sat in on featured Laurie Excell, Lisa Snider, RC Concepcion, and Dave Cuerdon.
Of course I capped of my night with the every entertaining Midnight Madness. It was incredibly fun and, holding true to their motto, no one there learned anything about Photoshop.
Now it’s on to the final day to catch a few more classes, check out the closing ceremonies, and then hop a plane back home. I have had such a great time here in Orlando and feel even more empowered to harness the power of Photoshop and Lightroom in my daily photography workflow.
Here’s a few shots from the show floor for you to check out. Have a great weekend!
