Hey, dig this — the Photoshop World Conference & Expo is being held in Atlanta this year for the first time ever (whoo hoo!) on April 8-10, 2014, and of course we are super-psyched. We’re at the Cobb Galleria Conference Center, which is the ideal location and it should be an absolutely killer show!
If you're planning on going (and I hope that you are), here are the sessions I'm teaching (there are over 100+ sessions but I hope you'll check out a couple of mine if you’re coming to the conference — it’s open to everyone).
Hot Shoe Flash for Absolute Beginners
I know there are a lot of folks out there that want to start using flash, or have always been curious about it, and if either one of those sounds like you, man, you gotta come check out this new class. I’ve come up with a way to teach flash that I truly believe will have you out shooting confidently with your off camera flash right away. I’m going to take the complexity and fear out of it totally, and make the process amazingly simple to learn and quick to use. You’ll learn the whole process, from start to finish, in just this one hour class and you’ll leave knowing you can do it.
Creating Your Own Custom Photo Book in Lightroom
In this session you'll learn how to create beautiful photo books from right within Lightroom itself. You'll see the entire workflow, step-by-step and exactly how to create your own custom photo books the easy way. There are lots of little inside tips, tricks, and time-saving techniques that you'll learn that will make creating these photo books one of the most-fun, easy, and creative parts of your photographic journey.
The 10-Minute Portrait Retouch
In this class you’re going to learn a number of very quick, yet very effective portrait retouching techniques, and get those under your belt so when we open an image we need to retouch, we can do the entire-retouch in less than 10-minutes (in fact, using all 10-minutes would be our worst-case scenario). One thing we do that speeds things up pretty dramatically is to add automation whenever we can, so you'll learn exactly how to do that, too. Then, once we learn the techniques, we'll do a number of start-to-finish retouches so you'll see how to make this whole thing work really quickly and efficiently.
I hope to see you in one of my Photoshop World classes in Atlanta in just a couple of months. If you haven't signed up yet, Here's the link.
I think I’ll check out your flash class, Scott. I still have a few questions about them that I’m sure will be answered.
As a follow-up blog, maybe you can do what you’ve done in the past. Tell us the classes that you wouldn’t miss if you were just an attendee. There’s so many great instructors to choose from, and a few are speaking at the same time slot! Decisions, decisions!
All the best,
That’s a great idea, John. I’ll do just that shortly. Thanks. :)
Speaking of flashes, what’s become of Light It?
Not much. LOL!!!! We’re currently evaluating the future of Light It now that’s we’ve become “one.”
I’m sorry that I won’t be able to go to the Photoshop Conference this year but I sure do hope that you will consider offering the “Hot Shoe Flash for Absolute Beginners” class on KelbyOne Training. BTW, Love the “Photoshop for Lightroom Users”. I’ve already used several of the tips and have always love your intros! While we have never met, you have taught me so much. Some day I hope to shake your hand and buy you a brew.
Wonder if numbnuts will be in that class? :)
Scott, did u see the email I sent you?
Maybe u could just email him again, Kenny.
This is the 3rd time! :)
Ken, McNally is teaching his own lighting class at the same time, according to the PSW schedule. Guess you need to flip a coin. And Scott only answers smoke signals nowadays. :-)
I know, it’s tearing me apart, I might just go with Dave Black :)
This year would’ve been my 4th PSW but I’ll have to miss it and your classes, Scott. Even though I’ve been using off-camera flash for a while I think I would’ve enjoyed your beginner flash class.
When is PSW coming to philly?
How about recording the classes at Photoshop World and making them watchable later on on KelbyOne?
Thinking of signing up for the @adobe Creative Cloud? Some of these horror stories might change your mind. http://forums.adobe.com/community/creative_cloud
Remember to change your passwords and check your bank account for the next several month to make sure the hackers that got all that sensitive data from Adobe donâ€™t access your accounts……..
Scott, why don’t you launch a “ten most wanted Photoshop features” poll for the upcoming event? Adobe listens to you and it would just be great! (my request would be an option to have an advanced mode in the color channels section where you can have the saturation & luminosity channels as default besides the RGB channels)
Would love to see the 10 minute retouch (I want my life back)! Any chance this class will make its’ way to KelbyOne?
