WOW! I always have to recover after Photoshop World. The lack of sleep and too much photoshop knowledge in my brain wears me out! It was great this year to get to go with two other friends. This year I became a 4+ Alumni with Benefits! I got a free Pro Pass, which allowed you upfront seating. I recommend buying it to guarantee front row seats! The PSW Keynote this year was based on the TV show Project Runway, except it was called Project Photoshop. The role of Heidi Klum was portrayed by Julieanne Kost as Heidi Clone. It was great as always of course Scott Kelby had to win the challenge! The rest of the conference was superb and the ending Keynote had us all in tears from the great Dave Black. He was so proud that his Photography teacher saw his potential and pushed him. He remembers it like it was yesterday and got all choked up during his speech, which had thousands of people in tears!
Here are a few shots from the conference, some taken with my iPhone and Canon Point and Shoot.

Whoopie! My photos are going to be run in a Diagnostic Detectives article in Mustang Magazine. It's about the case of the Blacked Out Tail Lights on Vintage Mustangs. The article is on pages 86-89, in an upcoming issue. If you have a Vintage Mustang you really need to subscribe to this great magazine. You can't find it on the store shelves. It is a subscription only magazine! Once, the magazine is published I'll let you all know! :-)
Can't afford Photoshop World? Well at least you can attend the Expo if you are in the Central Florida area. Visit the link here to get your FREE Expo pass for Thurs & Fri (the only days it is open to the public). There you can purchase new equipment, bags, software and more! Also, check out the mini classes going around at all the booths! You never know you may run into the Photoshop Guys!!!!!!!!!
You can also still register for Photoshop World! It's not too late! Click here!
I love that the National Association of Photoshop Professionals has decided to keep Photoshop World in Orlando for the East Coast!! Even though I would love to visit Boston again, but just can't afford it! Though, I can afford Orlando, drive back and forth, wake up early, get to bed late. I can't wait! Hopefully, this year I will have a small group of people to hang out with!
