Around the Web Jan. 12

Time is truly fleeting these days! Planned to do the blog yesterday afternoon, then a local student was having issues with Lightroom on her new laptop and a camera club seminar last night … so, blog not done on time again!


From PictureCorrect: “5 Tips to Improve Your Photography”, “Photography Basics”, “Timing in Photography Composition”, “Which Lens Should I Buy for my DSLR Camera?”, “How to Use a Diffuser to Enhance Your Food Photography”, “Wide-Angle Photography: Broaden Your Horizons”, “Aperture Priority vs Shutter Priority”.


From VideoTutorials411: “Don’t Overlook the Tone Curve”

From PSDVault: “Create Unique Snow & Frost Text Effect in PS”


From TheDesignest: “35+ Pirate Fonts to Sail Your Design”

From SpoonGraphics: “Download My New Set of 10 Dirty Surface Textures for Free”


Since Covid-19 forced us to postpone last year’s in-person Creative Photography Conference to Oct. 2021, we are holding a VIRTUAL version of our event on Feb. 27-28, 2021. We will have 13 hours of creative seminars including topics such as: Texture Basics; Topaz; Compositing; 360 Photography; Creative iPhoneography; Creative Landscapes, and more! I am finalizing speakers and topics and will have details by next week.
