There’s no such thing as the status quo when it comes to a photographer and his skills. There will always be room for improvement and it will always pay to work on improving your skills. I mean, you won’t find award-winning photographers like Samuel Aranda sitting back all day if they don’t have any shoots scheduled, will you?
A good way to learn new things which might help improve your craft is by attending seminars. Thanks to technology, you can attend these classes right in the comfort of your own home (provided you have a good Internet connection, that is) through webinars.
You might be aware that Adobe just released the latest edition of Lightroom a few weeks back, so it’s only fitting that one of the two webinars X-Rite will be hosting this month features both basic and advanced editing techniques that can be achieved using this software.
Mark your calendars for these webinars that feature programs hosted by Joe Brady and photographer-author Katrin Eismann :
