CAPA Photo Expo

There is only one week left before the early bird registration deadline (March 31) for the CAPA photo conference happening in Vancouver this August 1-3, 2015 at the UBC campus. CAPA Photo Expo will feature interactive workshops, photo tours, print displays, presentations, competitions, a trade show and most of all photographic exploration. Some of the photo tours are filling up fast.

You do not have to be a member of CAPA to attend, but CAPA individual members receive a $50 discount on registration to attend the conference. In fact, joining CAPA as an individual member for a year is only $15 more ($65 membership) and you receive many benefits like discounts at national and regional photo stores across Canada as well as subscription to Canadian Camera magazine. People with an individual membership in PSA are also eligible for the reduced conference rate. There are also one day passes to attend the conference.

More information on the conference, its speakers and how to register can be found here.

Hopefully some of you will be able to make the trip out West and make some new photography friends!

Photoshop Overlay Blend Mode

I have just added a short tutorial about Photoshop’s overlay blend mode to the members only Tips, Tricks and Tutorials section. If you have never used the overlay blend mode to add contrast and depth to your images you might find this tutorial useful. Move your mouse over the image to see a preview.
