Lightroom and Photoshop help me record the information and restore the photographs before I put them into my genealogy databases.
Just a quick couple of notes for today. Mark is out in California, with Sheldon, looking for a limited edition Green Lantern lantern, so I'll be doing this one. ;-) In March (23-26), it's time, once again, to wander down to Orlando for Photoshop World - an entire week of photography and post-processing fun. There are two conventions every year. The east coast is in the spring and usually rotates between Orlando and Boston. The west coast version happens in the fall in Las Vegas. The exhibition floor will be packed with great deals and new products. The classrooms will be filled with lots of photography-related education. There are several must-attend parties and discussions that occur throughout the week. Yup, a regular photo-geek fest. Here's the link, so you can register now.
On the 23rd, we will be spending the day in a pre-con session with Joe McNally and Moose Peterson. We've raved about Joe before. He is an incredible photographer. Moose is an extremely talented wildlife and landscape photographer. This will be the highlight of the week for me. Hope to see you in Orlando.
On a personal note, the post office delivered several of copies of The Guardian, newsletter for St. Mary's Home for Disabled Children. In October, I photographed their annual fund-raiser fun run in Virginia Beach and wrote a blog about it. They used two of the pictures in their newsletter and gave me the photo credit for the pictures. It's always nice to start the year with a new photo credit. You can support them by sending a donation here. It only takes a few minutes to help them with their work. If you haven't given to a deserving community group yet, this is a good one to recognize. I hope you can give them a hand. We've been talking about how to start the new year off properly, and this is just another good idea.
Here is one of the pictures from the run.
In Curacao, we again grabbed a cab for a few hours and took off to explore the city of Willemstad.
Travel can be complicated when you're dragging along camera gear and computer to some far-away place. Proper preparation will make your trip more relaxing.
