To me learning is so much fun I just can't stop. So I go to Seminars also.
When I finished Brooklyn College in June 2005 I decided I would go to school for web design. When I contacted the schools I that interested me to register for classes I found out they do not teach it anymore. They told me freelance designers in India will build you a site for 50 cents a page. Because of that there are no good paying jobs in web design in the USA anymore and hence no demand for the training so the courses have been eliminated. I had been participating in a web design club for a while, but I was mostly listening and trying to understand. So I started reading books and experimenting and here you have the results. The next part of the equation was the images. I started to read books to teach myself Adobe Photoshop and Digital Photography. I also went to Seminars. The one on the top left was for Photoshop Elements 3 by K&W. I took this in July 2005. The one on the top right was on Digital Photography with Kevin Ames of Blue Pixel. I took this one in October 2005. These events are one day only and very intense. So study before you go.
