Wednesday we will be in Atlanta to start off the first stop of the tour. We REALLY want this to be something that people will leave with real things to work on. It's not a "studio in a can" talk. Our commitment is to be totally transparent about our successes and failures, so hopefully you can avoid some of the mistakes we have made over the years. I want the attendees to feel apart of the talk. I will be using twitter to interact with the crowd while my better half will be doing most of the talking. She is quite good at the talky thing. I will chime in when I feel I can add something to the topic. There will also be a guest speaker at each stop who will talk about practical lighting /shooting techniques (see below).
We will be rolling out a new premium side to our lbobi (Little Blog of Big Ideas) next week so stay tuned for details. Don't worry, we're not taking away anything from lbobi, just adding on.
Here is the official PPA release about the tour. Lots of great links and info about it.
