Blog for Photographers - SPI Photo Conference
Local Florida - SPI Photo Conference
This newsletter is going to focus on photo conferences and classes for continued learning and improving photography skills.
Here's a few photos of a Scentsy camera that I won when I attended the last SPI photo conference in Orlando, FL. The next one will be January 4-8, 2018. This is the third time I have attended the SPI conference and I look forward to next year's event.
Thank you Send Out Cards for the gift.
I meet Tiffany Cline, a great source for Scentsy refills at a local Florida farmer's market.
Local farmer's markets are a great place for photo ideas and to meet new people.
My cats even like the Scentsy candle's scent.
Photo Project Idea
Attend a photo conference to learn new ideas, network, and be inspired.
I was inspired to do a frisbee photoshoot with a free gift I received from one of the vendor booths at the Shutterfest conference in St. Louis that I just attended last week.
Travel Photography Tips:
Research sunrise and sunset times so you can be prepared for the best lighting times.
I got a new computer. YAY! It's faster and there are less computer issues.
Since purchasing software on CD's has become less common and now a lot of the companies just sell software downloads, it was more time consuming to find all the programs I use and I had to do a lot of digging in my emails and receipts to find the links and passwords to download to new computer. It has been suggested to create a folder of downloaded program files to save for next time I upgrade which I think is a great idea to keep my programs organized.
Working with Layer Masks
The shortcut to fill a layer or layer mask with the foreground color is Alt+ Backspace.
Create a selection from a layer mask by Ctrl or Cmd clicking on the layer mask.
