Back from Vegas

Stellar's Sea Eagle over Lake Fuhren, Japan

It has been a whirlwind few weeks as I finally returned from Japan just in time to teach a weekend canvas workshop. The following day we left for the PMA convention in Vegas and finally returned to Los Osos to prepare for Jack Davis this weekend.
Not sure how many eagles are in this frame.
The Japan trip was incredible. Internet acccess was limited as we travelled further north and east on Hokkaido. Fortunately, as the internet decreased the eagle density skyrocketed. There were Stellar's Sea Eagles and White Tailed Sea Eagles everywhere. We spent time at Lake Fuhren as well as in a small town called Rausu. Good stuff. I cannot wait to get back there next February. If you have any interest in joining us give me a call or email.

After returning to the Institute, we ran a very successful Canvas Printing and Finishing course over the weekend. The two day canvas intensive is the best way to learn how to create a professional, archival gallery wrap. Course participants left with a 16 x 24 image of their own wrapped and ready to hang.

Most recently, we attended the PMA conference in Las Vegas to catch up with a few of our sponsors and instructors. It was a quick trip but good to see everyone and discover any new gear or software. Spent a little time with the new Canon 17mm tilt shift lens. I think I need one.

A motley crue of photographers!
Jack Davis is here starting tomorrow and is giving a full week of his impressive knowledge, tips, and tricks. Should be some outstanding shooting and digital darkroom work.
