On the Road to Boston


I’m leaving, on a jet plane… don’t know when I’ll be back again.

Well, actually, I should get home Friday night as long as ORD (O’Hare Airport) doesn’t get closed due to weather…seems to happen a lot in the spring.

So, I’ll be at Photoshop World this week. If you haven’t already registered, it’s too late-it’s sold out. I’ll be pretty busy. I’ll be at the mini Epson Print Academy Tuesday afternoon as well as stopping in to the Photoshop Soup 2 Nuts precon events.

On Wednesday I’ll be speaking from the Peachpit booth in the Tech Expo-I’ve committed to carry on Bruce Fraser’s Real World Camera Raw book so Peachpit wants me to talk at the booth. I also have two general sessions; Thursday at 11:00a-12:00p Lightroom to Photoshop to Lightroom for Printing, and Friday at 10:45a-11:45a In Search of the Perfect B&W Print.

If I get the chance, I’ll try to post a story or two from the event. See ya in Boston!
