I can’t believe that I will be leaving Japan tomorrow. I have had such an incredible trip and I thank all of the lovely people that I’ve met and that have helped me negotiate this wonderful culture. Here are a few images form my travels. I expect that many of them will end up in future demos that I do! Doumo arigatou gozaimasu.

Here’s the course description:
Ready to drastically reduce your post-production workflow? In this 2-day workshop, Julieanne Kost, the Principal Digital Imaging Evangelist for Photoshop and Lightroom at Adobe Systems, will show you how to save time every step of the way, from importing raw images to exporting expertly enhanced photographs — and everything in between.
Julieanne will teach you how to streamline the import process, create a simple organizational structure, and edit a shoot efficiently and seamlessly. You will learn the key tools to enhance your photographs, correct color and tonal values, customize your color to black and white conversion, and even add special effects such as selective coloring, split toning, and vintage looks.
Julieanne will also demonstrate how and when to move images from Lightroom into Photoshop for further enhancements, and outline how to easily create slideshows, photo books, and templates for printing. By the end of this class, you’ll understand key tools and strategies for streamlining your workflow while creating stunning images.
