This year's Photoshop World East was a BLAST! I've been to Photoshop World more time than I can count. However, this particular conference seemed much more "upbeat". I didn't run into a single "cranky" person the whole time. Everyone was all smiles and having a great time. As an instructor, I feed off the energy of my audience. So when my audience is having a good time and learning, it gets me excited and drives me to show more and teach more. So I not only had a great crowd in each of my sessions, they were really into what I had to say and show. That makes all the difference in the world!
Here are some highlights and I've included the Keynote video too! Enjoy 🙂
I finally got a chance to meet Erik Bernskiold
As you may remember Erik is the web designer of this Tech Blog and my BestAppSite.com. However, believe it or not we've never met face to face. We've worked together all this time over the internet. Erik is from Sweden and this was his first Photoshop World. Erik is an extremely talented and a genius!
Westcott showing the Love!
I'm not only in the 2010 Westcott Pro Lighting Catalog, but they also featured one of my images on their Booth. I stopped by to say hello and couldn't resist the opportunity to do a quick shoot with their model. It's just the way I am 🙂
My Live Shoot at the Bogen Manfrotto Booth
Once again I did a live shoot and lighting class right on the show floor. This time it was at the Bogen Manfrotto booth. Of course one my favorite models, "Steve" couldn't resist the opportunity to have a little fun. This class was one of my favorites to teach because I got a chance to show off many of the lighting products that I use all the time.
Stevie, there is no fly on your forehead. Honest!
