Good Morning! I have some time to kill this morning. I am in the process of organizing my photos and creating separate Lightroom catalogs for each year of photographs that I have on my photos hard drive. Huh! Who knew? Apparently, the more experienced photographers knew…that a large catalog slows Lightroom’s performance down considerably. Where did I learn this? Well, that brings me to my next obsession.
I’ve been addicted to CreativeLIVE. It’s called a live, worldwide creative classroom. These people are brilliant! They’ve created a forum for photographers at any level (experience and income-wise) to learn from the pros. They broadcast the classes for FREE on a set day and time, and then offer the broadcast as downloadable for a fee. The fee is not exorbitant, usually around $149, and it’s discounted during the live broadcast to $99. I have learned so much! And not just about the technical aspects of photography, but about the business side of photography. Today, I will be tuning in to the first of a three day workshop with Sandy Puc’ called The Business of Tots to Teens. And, next week, I’m excited to watch Joe Buissink for Wedding Photography. I’m not sure I want to do wedding photography, but I love his imagery. If you’re interested, check them out at http://www.creativelive.com.
