Welll, can you make ( and sell) a DVD of that? I can't come but it
sounds EXACTLY what potters-who-don't-really-want-to-be-photographers
want and need. I 'd pay bucks for it. I bet lotsa folks would.

Hello everyone,

I've got two great workshops back to back at Dale's set for
September. I
will have a video teaser trailer up in the next few days showing some
of the
things I cover during the workshop from past workshops. Basically, its
everything you wanted to know about digital photography, how to
your work professionally on the cheap (my first setups I built when
out to what I am using now) as well as how to professionally edit the
photos, file formatting, Zapp & JAS apps, marketing, etc. I will also be
showing how to photography with $150 camera all the way up to a
digital slr.

Youtube and Flikr as you say are very good resources to check cameras out--=
refer to them with customers to show a variety of people's images or
footage. Let me know how that Nikon pans out as you know what you are doin=
with cameras and will be able to maximize that cameras functions. All to
often I have customers who bring back a camera because it "doesn't work" or
"its a piece of @#$@" and I change one setting or two and they are like "Oh=
I should have read the manual." And I smile and send them on their way.
Hey Arnold, how far are you from Dale Neese? Have fun this weekend.
