Hi Gang: I’m excited to announce that Joel Grimes has joined our instructor ranks for the upcoming Photoshop World Conference & Expo in Las Vegas (coming Sept. 7-9, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino). He’s a specialist on lighting and Photoshop compositing techniques, and here’s a quick tutorial that Joel did (shown above) on Wacom’s site (link), and if you’ve got a minute, check it out.

Joel joins some of our new instructors that made a big hit at the previous Photoshop World, including Jeremy Cowart, Frank Doorhof, and Dave Black. Here’s a link to reserve your spot now.

  7. Joel is an excellent addition to the PSW team! I’ve been following his work for years. I haven’t been to a PSW in a few years (5 time alumni though) and now with PSW going back to Vegas and Joel teaching, I’ll really have to try to get out there again.

    What will Joel be teaching?
