There is a short list of places in the USA that I enjoy visiting as much as Ketchum, Idaho. The governor of California, along with a long list of celebrities who own houses there, are definitely onto something. It’s a small, close knit community full of great people. In March I had the good fortune of teaching my Photoshop CS4 Basics and Beyond workshop in Ketchum at the studio of Sun Valley wedding photographer Thia Konig. The participants of the workshop gelled into a cohesive group almost instantly thanks to the many laughs provided by maestro Paul Liebhardt. Participants attending from as far away as Maryland and southern California. Below are a few shots from the week.
Last fall Software-Cinema approached me about putting together an instructional DVD on Photoshop CS4. As I write this, the DVD is going to press and should be released within the month.
I am making my annual pilgrimage to Ketchum, Idaho at the end of February and will be offering a photography workshop titled “Photoshop CS4 Fundamental Workflow” based on the DVD. Dates are March 9-13th. Its going to be a great one! I hope you can make it.
A successful week in Ketchum/Sun Valley Idaho and the “Masala of Digital Imaging Techniques” workshop. The above image was produced by Marcia Duff after a introduction to digital montages in Photoshop CS3. Photoshop is such a complex behemoth of a program that it is very refreshing for me to see my participants artistic vision emerge like it did during the workshop. Great job Marcia and all the other participants who produced fantastic images during the two day event!
