Conference held at UMass Amherst. This was my first year attending and was an excellent conference. There were very many well-known photographers presenting on many interesting subjects. I picked up a few new ideas as usual. I also met old friends and make new acquaintances.
I was introduced to Ian Plant, whose e-books, I have, and that I am an affiliate of his dreamscapes store. It was nice talking to him, along with my friend Greg Bosco over a pitcher of beer. His presentation " Visual Flow: Mastering the Art of Composition" was excellent and you can learn about mastering the art of composition from his e-book with the same name and which is available from his site: Click here to view more details
