Hi Gang: Happy Monday (I know, that’s a bit of a stretch this early in the day, right?).
If you’re planning on going to the Photoshop World Conference in Las Vegas this summer (and I hope that you are — it’s open to everyone), I wanted to list the sessions I’m teaching (there are nearly 100 sessions but I hope you’ll check out a couple of mine).
Now, if you’re wondering, “What’s Photoshop World?” take a look at this highlight clip from last year’s conference (below). We played a longer version of this at the conference wrap up (this is just a two-minute clip), but it gives you a really good idea of what it’s like being there.
Anyway, here’s what I’m teaching this year:
Essentials of Designing With Type
Bad type can ruin a really great photo and in this session, I’m going to show you how to create poster layouts, photo book covers, web graphics and more so your type complements your work, rather than destroying it. You’ll learn everything from the basics of typography including which fonts to use, when, and why, and how to create simple, beautiful-looking designs (it’s easier than you’d think). This class will change the way you think about and use type and photos together from this point on.
Unlocking The Power of Lightroom Mobile
If you’re ready to take your Lightroom CC workflow beyond the desktop, you’ve got to check out this session that expands and extends the way you use Lightroom in a very cool way. I think you’ll be surprised at some of the things you can do with Lightroom on your mobile device, including some really interesting stuff you can do Web-wise that if you haven’t learned yet, you’re totally going to love (and so will your clients).
Creating Beautiful Photo Books 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, plus I’m going to share a few tricks on creating your own custom layouts that I think you’ll really find helpful. Lots of little tips, tricks, and time-saving techniques.
Lightroom Killer Tips
This is an updated version of one of my most popular classes at Photoshop World, with lots of cool new tips, workarounds, shortcuts, and things to make you faster, more effective, and just have more fun using Lightroom. You’re going to learn real, practical techniques you can put to work the very next day.
Anyway, if you’re going, I’d love to see you in one of my sessions, so I hope you’ll drop by. If you haven’t planned on going, why not? Here’s the link — come and spend a few days taking your career, and your skills, up a big notch (warning: if you go even once, you’ll want to go every year. Ask anyone that’s been to one). See you in Vegas this summer!
