It's Been Awhile

A little bit too long again. My excuse for not keeping up my blog - I've been too busy of course. Well, what's been happening since my last blog. As usual a few family events, parties, dining out with friends, a few photographty events, working on photos, slide shows, a wedding DVD, and business plans and goals. Today, the minister at church asked about my progress with the photography business and we spoke a bit about his interests in photography. I'll get back with him about some courses, workshops, and photography clubs. Another soul to be saved - mine.

Week before last, I attended an all day seminar with Eddie Tapp on Photoshop sponsored by the Maryland Professional Photographers Association. He was extremely informative and presents well. I recommend listening to Eddie if ever you get a chance. I learned a lot about some neat Photoshop Actions for enhacing images. The same evening, listened to Andy Stanicek, a local PPA photographer, speak more about Photoshop and photography. The next day, I woke up early and took a bus trip to the Jacob Javitts Convention Center in New York City with fStop International for the Annual PDN (Photography District News) Photoplus International Conference and Expo. It was fantastic - all the latest photo equipment from the major vendors, demos, talks, album displays, and fantastic photo print galleries. Another don't miss event.

Last week, fStop International had an evening with Pete Wright (2007 PPA Photographer of the Year) and his wife Liliana, speak about a few of their techniques for marketing their wedding photography and supplying the wedding couple and party with better services, better photography and better products. Another great presentation not to miss if you get a chance to see them.
