Don’t Miss it!

There’s less than a week left to register for The Art of Photography. It’s built for beginners and intermediate levels, and I know you’ll have a great time!

One of the MOST common questions is: “If I’m registered and I miss the live part, can I still download?” Yes, of course! πŸ™‚

Thanks again to our sponsors HDRsoft (makers of Photomatix), SmugMug, Nik, and Adorama! We’ll have many great prizes as well – more info on the page above.

Daily Photo – What the Ancient Seamariners Saw

Imagine seeing this if you were one of the great sea explorers of yore!

This is the entrance to Milford Sound from the Tasman Sea. It would have been so amazing to come across this and wonder what it was like up inside the fjord. And then, the captain could just decide to sail up inside and land some boats on the shore. Maybe if they were a little hungry, they could even grab a few Moas and cook ’em up. After a long sea voyage, nothing goes down smoother than a Moa.

    Really wish i had a camera so I could attend your upcoming class — perhaps by the next class (please say you’ll do another) I’ll have all the equipment and software in place. admittedly, studying without a camera is a challenge to my imagination. sometimes i just pickup the cat and click (his winter’s vet bill substituted for a camera).

    Beautiful photo, Trey…and looking forward to your class, too. I consider myself an advanced intermediate but I know I’ll be able to pick up tips here and there. Hey and if I’m lucky, maybe even a camera for me and my friend that I talked into taking it with me!
