Photoshop World Washington DC
Photoshop World Washington DC is just around the corner, and there’s still time to sign up for what’s gearing up to be one of our biggest Photoshop World conferences yet!

While you’re signing up, make sure you register for a pre-conference workshop! Might I suggest the Real World Concert Photography workshop with Alan Hess and Scott Diussa? I have it on good authority that the person who has the best image from the workshop will win a Nikon D7000 kit! There are still a few spots left, so sign up before it’s too late.
