    Thank you George and David! Would love to attend a "Part II" of this session or even a repeat of the same session. Learned a lot and appreciated David's patience and clear explanations.

    I didn't realize that you were having a tattoo'd Bruce Willis teaching the class or I might have taken off work! Sorry I missed this.

    This was a great workshop, I really enjoyed meeting all of the great people who came out and made some new friends. We covered A LOT of stuff!! We had some great prizes from Wacom that two lucky winners got to take home (congrats guys!!) and most of all learned some awesome new ways to non-destuctively retouch photos. Thanks to everyone who came out, I hope you had as much of a good time learning as I did teaching. Hope to see you all again soon!

    Unfortunately I need to cancel. Got a flat coming home tonight, called my shop and can't get it changed until Monday. Already drove 2 hours on my spare, no way I should drive up from Central Valley. Been looking forward to this class ever since it was announced, so I'm pretty disappointed.

    • George

      Sorry to hear you're having trouble. I'll do what I can to sell your spot: but, I very late notice!

      Thanks George! I know, and I apologize, but the flat occurred this afternoon; late notice for me too! ;)

    Many workshops and shoots fill up fast; so, it's best to sign up as soon as you can. That said, if the demand is there we almost always run more. This particular workshop is one I'm confident will be a repeat.

    Only the attendees to this PS workshop will be entered into the
    drawing for the Wacom - intuos5-touch tablet. This tablet receives
    great reviews and retails for over $320. So sign up early and don't
    risk missing this great opportunity to learn more about PS from
    Graphic Artist David Turner and be entered into the drawing.

    FYI, there is also the possibility of more items to be given away at
    this meet up.
    Thanks
