Photoshop World Las Vegas
You may be thinking that you still have plenty of time to register for Photoshop World since it isn’t until September. That’s true, but if you’re planning on signing up for one of the in-depth workshops that happen the day before the conference starts, you could be running out of time! Two of these workshops are already sold out, and I know of at least one other that only has a few openings left. If this is something you’re hoping to make part of your Photoshop World experience, sign up now before it’s too late! Or, you know, if you just want to save money by registering early, you can do that too ;-)

Once you’ve registered, make sure you book a room at the official Photoshop World hotel, Mandalay Bay, so you can stay where the instructors stay!

The Grid – The Effects of Unsolicited Criticism
The topic of yesterday’s episode of The Grid was The Effects of Unsolicited Criticism, which has grown recently thanks to the anonymity of the internet. Scott and Matt spoke about one photographer’s experience with such feedback (though it was via email, not anonymous), and how it brought her to the point of almost quitting photography completely. This is a photographer whose work is admired by many of us here at Kelby Media Group, as well as KelbyOne instructors. The episode will be posted sometime today, and it’s one you won’t want to miss. Keep an eye out for it on KelbyOne.com and YouTube.
