Before anything else, I’d like to extend a big “thank you!” to Scott for having me back. I really enjoyed my last visit here and was very appreciative of all of your comments. Fresh from leading the Adobe Headquarters Photo Walk in San Jose, I’d also like to call out what Scott and everyone at the NAPP do; not just for education on a wide array of Adobe products, but their celebration for the passion of photography. My favorite part of my job is seeing what people do with our software and the excitement and creativity it brings to them; Saturday’s Photo Walk offered a really nice perspective on what that looks like early on, from behind-the-person-behind-the-lens. Here in San Jose, we enjoyed a full house; had a special guest participant, and I finished with Lightroom 2.0 and Photoshop CS4 demos from our own Park conference room – a great way to spend a Saturday. Thanks to Scott & friends for putting me in touch with some great people and talented shooters!
Although I’ve collaborated with Scott and the staff of the NAPP for many years, last year was my first trip out to NAPP headquarters. My experience there prompted what I’m going to share today.
