Greetings from Photoshop World

My apologies for the lack of articles once again this week, but after a three day photo shoot outside Los Angeles this past weekend I immediately took a flight to Las Vegas for Photoshop World.

This has been my first Photoshop World, but there’s been so much great content that I wonder why it took me so long to haul my butt down to one of these shows.

I don’t have much time before I need to get some rest before the next day of events, so here’s a quick inline slideshow of some of my personal highlights from the show…

Welcome to Photoshop World

Rain for part the first evening made me not feel so bad about being indoors

Frank Doorhoof was doing things with speedlites that would impress Joe McNally at the Rogue Booth

Night Views from Local Clubs in Vegas are so spectacular they are worth the flight out here alone!

Eddie Tapp was on hand at the Canon booth

Russell Brown was showing off some Photoshop basic tricks

Joe McNally was as great as ever during his sessions at the show

Matt Kloskowski had a big crowd on hand to hear him speak

Bill Fortney was a pleasure to listen to

Westcott was providing some exciting subjects to show off new LED lighting solutions

Getting a shot in the crowd was less than easy

Westcott Spiderlights were also on hand with models throughout the show

And once again, good luck trying to get in and get a shot!

Quote of the day

Jay Maisel was offering lots of great lessons during his exhaustive slideshow on Thursday night, but this had to be my favorite:

Move your ass - better shots might be in just a slightly different spot from where you are standing.


If you missed Photoshop World Las Vegas this year, you really missed out. In addition to the great presentations, excellent handout materials and special offers exclusive to the show, Adobe gave away a FREE year subscription to the FULL Creative Cloud (that’s all Adobe products) and Google gave away a FREE copy of the Nik Collection. As a photographer, with deals like that it was a no brainer investment!
