While a lot of my colleagues will be getting ready to attend Macromedia Max in San Francisco next week, I will be in the Twin Cities attending a workshop given by Katrin Eismann. I was able to meet Katrin in person for the first time last month at Photoshop World in Boston. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend any of her sessions, so attending this session will be a treat.
Katrin is both a talented and passionate user of Photoshop as well as a gifted teacher. Her session is going to focus on retouching for portraits and creating masks and selections.
I enjoy attending events like these to see how people work with Photoshop, learn new workflows, and try to determine what could be done to improve those workflows.
The local chapter of the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) is sponsoring the event.
The Twin Cities is home to companies like Target, Best Buy and host of advertising agencies, which helps fuel the local commercial photography community. Many of these dedicated local photographers are ASMP members.
Attending ASMP meetings is a great way to meet other photographers in your community, share ideas on photography, and exchange tips on digital imaging.
