In many professions, staying up to date on the latest techniques, technology and best practices is a necessity and commercial photography is no different. Recently, tonic photo studios was involved in two events which helped both Patrick Darby and other valley photographers maintain their leading-edge skills.
In August, we hosted a seminar created by the American Society of Media Photographer’s Phoenix chapter. The seminar was part of the chapter’s Third Thursday monthly series and the August event focused on architectural photography. Since architectural photography work is one of our specialties, we were pleased to host the meeting. Not only was it a great way to show off our phoenix commercial studio space to other valley photographers, we were proud to support a great organization which helps local photographers of all skill levels.
The other event Tonic was involved with focused more on helping to maintain Patrick’s skill set. Photoshop World Las Vegas 2011 was held earlier this month and we sent Patrick to learn the latest in Photoshop techniques. Photo retouching in Photoshop is a large part of the work involved in delivering the highest quality images and Patrick is committed to providing the highest level of Photoshop creativity to the clients who entrust their photography work to him.
In addition to enjoying the conference, Patrick took a little time to experience the energy of Las Vegas. He took a few shots of the incredible sights on The Strip.
