Vegas Baby – Let’s Roll!

Photoshop World is less than a week away and we (the entire Peterson Herd will be at PSW) can’t wait! There are SO many GREAT folks at PSW, there is simply nothin like it! Well…where can you find me during PSW? The PreCon will be a ton of fun, it was sold out the day it was posted but you’ll find me in the hall in front of the room at least an hour early. There is the Art of Digital presentation where eight of us share nothing but our photographic passion with you. There are my classes, information about them is below (they are completely updated from April!). And you’ll find me on the Expo Floor at either the Epson Booth (ya baby, got prints there!), Wacom booth or the Image Wizards booth (got prints there as well! And you’ll want to find me! Why? First, I want to meet you and put a face to the name. Also, I have some give aways! For example, I have DOZEN Copperhill Cleaning kits to give away to folks. Watch for my Twitters for when and where I’ll ne giving stuff away. Can’t wait for the fun! We all look forward to seeing you all in Vegas Baby!

Dang, I want to Get Started in Wildlife Photography!
If you read my book, Captured, you probably got disappointed when you read my statement, “If you want to play with the big boys, you gotta have 600mm!” But I started with a 400mm and that was my longest lens for my first 5 years. That focal length taught me all the main lessons I depend upon today to be successful. You have a basic DSLR and a 70-300 or a 100-400. I’m going to share with you all that my 400mm taught me, permitting me to get where I am today. These are all techniques, tricks and tips you can apply to your photography to get you way beyond “started in wildlife photography.”

The Art of Aviation
There is an art of flying metal. These speed machines that defy gravity bend light just as gracefully. But how do you take these gas fueled machines and make them a piece of art? This is basic photography of light, exposure, focal length, moving the viewer’s eye around the image, manipulating it while you tell the story. The subject might be “just” a plane, but the techniques, tricks and final results must make the heart fly. Don’t let the title fool you. There is a lot more to this than just airplanes, we are talking romance!
