Quick Hit Monday: Model Shoot-Out Coming!; Cool Photography; & Photoshop Goodies, Tutorials, and Freebies

Good Morning Everybody,

Ever have one of those days where you just can't see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I hate to say it, but my entire weekend felt that way ;~) The BIG project for me is to push out the marketing for our upcoming PhotoPro Expo 2012 by the end of this week. 

Let me share with you one of our convention highlights.  It is like way cool.  If you've attended Photoshop World over the last few years, you've experienced the model shoot-out.  It is really fun.  Four bays completely propped and jammed packed with Westcott lighting and great looking exotic models.  Check out the video below to see what I mean - like I said, WAY COOL!. 

Anyway, my good friends at Westcott have agreed to do the same thing for our PhotoPro Expo 2012 convention!  I can't wait.  And, hey gang, that's just for starters.  I'll keep you posted as all the plans to come together. Remember, use promo code PPEDAZ12 to save $100 off registration.
