It is a wrap on another Photoshop World for me. After an event filled week, I had an uneventful flight home. As with all the Photoshop Worlds I have done in the past, this was a great week of sharing, learning and community. I am often time asked why someone would attend Photoshop World and why do I keep coming back. For me it is the community of people that attend the conference that makes it worth the trip. After a few times down, it is more like a family reunion than a conference. Old friends getting together and catch up on life, work and photography. It is a chance to meet new people to add to the family.

IMG_0348At the core of all this is a passions for photography. I don’t think it matters who you are, you need to recharge your batteries sometimes. You need to find new ways to be inspired. You need support to keep you going. You need to be around people who are as excited about the next photograph as you are. If your passion is lost, you need to be around people who can nudge you back on path. So to those of you I did get to spend time with in Vegas this year, thank you. To all of those who showed me images one phones, tablets, laptops, screens and prints. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. Your willingness to share your work will inspire me for days, months and years to come. To those of you I didn’t get a chance to meet, make sure to say hi next time. Looking forward to next time, can’t wait to do it all again. Images in the post are from Fremont Street (the best place to people watch) and the closing session with my Olloclip Fisheye.
