Sunday—Photoshop World 2013 in Orlando

Orange County Convention Center from the 25th floor
of the Peabody Hotel  (shhh, I'm already here!)

I'm traveling to Orlando this week for the Photoshop World 2013 conference!

The theme for this week is ADVENTURE!  This week, I'll be blogging from the Peabody Hotel in Orlando, Florida, where I'll be attending the 3-day Photoshop World 2013 conference at the beautiful Orange County Convention Center.

I'll be taking classes in Business, Photoshop, Graphic Design, Lighting, Lightroom, Photography Techniques.  And, I'll be shooting pix with my iPhone, my iPad, my trusty Sony point & shoot, and my new Panasonic Lumix micro four-thirds.

The theme of the Peabody Hotel is ducks, based on the 1930's story of Frank Schutt, General Manager of the Peabody, who with his friend, Chip Barwick, returned after a hunting trip to Arkansas and decided to let their live decoy ducks spend the night in the hotel fountain.  They've been a hit ever since, and for 76 years, they've been a ducky fixture in the fountain at the Peabody.

So, that's it!  The blog may be a little choppy this week as I knit together classes and pretend to be a photographer.  At least, I'll have a cool lanyard and a Photoshop World "Top Gun" badge.

I'll post pix from my flight and from the conference!
