I’ll be presenting my Photoshop for Photographers seminar in Phoenix today. I’ll then get tempted by other bus possibilities at a place called Desert West Coach before spending tomorrow shooting an abandoned mine with my buddy Jim.
I’m thinking about heading up the East coast in a few weeks… possibly making it all the way to Maine. Let me know if you can think of any essential stops on my way. Especially unusual subject matter to shoot.
The image above was created my Regina in my office as a promo for this web site. I’ll be using it when I speak at events like the one I’m teaching today.
I live in Phoenix. Which abandoned mine did you visit?
I attended your seminar yesterday – you, Senor Willmore, are a Rock Star. Do Photoshop gurus get roadies? If so, I’d be first on the list!
Seriously…I had about 30 “A-HA!” moments yesterday when concepts that have been evading me for two years finally became clear! At the risk of sounding like your next infomercial, your teaching style is so easy and clear…your ability to explain complex concepts with every-day analogies is BRILLIANT!
As an instructor of adults myself (mixed media art) I applaud you. Not every skilled artist or geek can teach…but you’ve got it all! 🙂
(Can’t wait unitl you come back to our little corner of the desert…I’m waitign for “Shooting for Photoshop!”)
I was there Thursday as well. Kim is right…YOU ROCK!!
Yeah, stop in Connecticut and have a seminar in East Windsor or Windsor Locks Connecticut at a Ramada Inn or someplace that I can attend!
You should definitely try to make it to the Syracuse, NY area! It’s been on the decline for a long time so there’s a lot of run-down areas that might have some shooting opportunities. It’s cold up here, but we like it!
I know a trip up the eastern side has to include a stop in DC, but on the way, check out the exit from 95 to Charleston, SC. Route 17, there is a lot of old building, boats, shacks. Also Jeckyll Island has a beach on the north of the island that is covered with old trees from storms, I used some Raw’s from there to make my first HDR images, see the 2nd shot, http://www.mpalmerphotography.com/HDR/index.html . I believe there is a RV camp also on the Island. If you make it to DC, dinner in Georgetown will be on me.
Jeckyll Island is near Brunswick, GA BTW
I was at the seminar in Phoenix and WOW! Thanks for all the tips, tricks and fabulous things you talked about. I came away reenergized and inspired.. THANKS!!!
p.s. I LOVE your HDR stuff…simply awesome.
