We're getting ahead of ourselves
For a lot of folks, Photoshop World starts a day early — they come to take part in the pre-conference workshops — these are indepth, more intimate workshops with a limited number of participants and they run the day before the full conference officially kicks off. Let's take a look at a few of those;
This collection of instructors only happens here. Seriously.
OK, I have to brag for just a sentence or two, but there is nowhere on earth where group of instructors all come together like this. This is the magic behind Photoshop World. A hand-picked roster of the very best instructors anywhere, and we are so proud to have them teaching for us at Photoshop World. OK, stepping off my soapbox. ;-)
Natural Light Shoots
Each year we building shooting bays, both indoors sets fully lit with studio lights, and we do a natural light shoot, and this years we had everything from flowers to brides to Vikings, along with a food food, all lit with natural light, and instructors right there to help you get the shot.
Never Underestimate The Importance of Having Fun!
Canon Sensor Cleaning
Canon gets a lot of love at the conference because they invite ANY Canon photographer at the conference to have a completely free sensor cleaning while they're at the conference (and hundreds of cameras get cleaned during those few days). My hats off the Canon to for being so cool to offer this once again to our attendees. That is just so cool!
We have our own version of an Expo, with lots of exhibits from companies we partner with like Millers Imaging, Tamron, Platypod, Adobe Stock, Bay Photo Labs, B&H Photo, Tethertools, Corel, BenQ, DJI, Drobo, LaCie, Westcott, Skylum, Topaz and more who are all there showing off their latest gear. Plus, we set up shooting bay — complete sets with models for attendees to literally just walk up and shoot. It's great practice, especially for folks who aren't used to using studio lighting or getting the opportunity to work with models. A big high five to KelbyOne members Gilmar Smith, Mark Rodriguez, and Melanie Kern-Favilla for their incredibly awesome and creative set-ups this yet (they were a BIG hit!).
