Here we go. The time has come to kick off Photoshop World Las Vegas. Yesterday was pre-con day and it was a huge success. I peeked in Russell Brown’s 3D Lenticular class and it was quite fascinating. However I didn’t really have eight hours to sit through the whole thing but what I did see was quite amazing.

So I ran into John Paul Caponigro in the casino yesterday and he told me he wanted to try and do a massive Photoshop coblogging thing. Where each of the instructors that has a blog would post something of their experience here at Photoshop World each day of the event. I thought this was a great idea. Here is the link to JP’s blog which has links to other instructors blogs as well.

The other day Matt Kloskowski and I went out to Nellis Air Force base here in Las Vegas to check out the famous Thunderbirds. It was really something. We got to go in the hangar and meet some of the crew and then out to the tarmac to get some really close up shots. Click these links to see some of the shots I got. Image 1. Image 2. Image 3.

    Helping out:
    Image 1) 1/200, f22, ISO 200, 18mm
    Image 2) 1/1250, f6.3, ISO 200, 170mm
    Image 3) 1/1600, f5, ISO 200, 48mm

    All is revealed in the EXIF data 🙂

    Pretty sure the sun is as it was (small aperture = star effect). I’d hope any PS would clean up that dirty sensor first 😉

    Corey, congrats on the tour of the T-Birds (I was just a few rows down, wish I knew you guys were there!) hope to meet you and the rest of the Photoshop Guys this weekend.

    Glad you’re having a great time at PS World. Since I’m unable to attend I must get vicarious thrills through you. I’m guessing that a ride on one of those T-Birds would require some industrial strength underwear! Keep shooting and posting, Corey. Best of luck in your presentations out there. Wish I could see them!

    Awesome photos! Jet against mountains – VERY nice. An exciting place, isn’t it? Been there too –
    Enjoy the rest of the conf. – I’m here in Florida waiting on some more hurricanes. Enjoy the weather there in Vegas.
    Hope to get to the next NAPP conf. here in the Southeast!
