Well, had an amazing opportunity a few weeks ago. Scott Kelby of KelbyOne and a photography and Photoshop god held a seminar in Hartford, CT called: “Scott Kelby’s Shoot Like a Pro: Reloaded!” and I was lucky enough to win a ticket. The seminar was amazing. Not only did I learn a lot from Scott himself but met a great bunch of amateur and professional photographers. The side bar discussions were great and I am reenergized to keep on this journey of learning to be a better photographer.
Take a look at his photo of Scott and I. Scott’s team selected one of my (many) tweets and I won a Photography book and was able to take a picture with Scott. A great day made even better!
I’ve spent the days and week since this great seminar taking more and more photos. I also created my own website over on SmugMug. Here’s the link: jskurkis.smugmug.com. I still need to do a lot of work to it – adding more photos and update the “about me” section, just to name a few. I’m excited about posting my photographs. I have been fortunate to do a lot of traveling and I’m excited to share my experiences there and here.
I’ve also made the switch from Apple’s Aperture to Adobe’s Lightroom. The learning curve hasn’t been as steep as I thought it was. I do find myself getting a little frustrated when I can’t find what I’m looking for but those moments are happening less and less.
More to come…
