This Week's Tip
Updates From BetterPhoto

"This was by far the most unique and artistic course I have taken in years. ... Jim Zuckerman's examples and step-by-step lessons helped me understand how to achieve the 'Photoshop creations.' The course really does makes you think 'outside the box' and gets your creative juices flowing. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is comfortable experimenting in Photoshop." -Sue Brown-Moseman, student in Photoshop: Thinking Outside the Box

Feeling uninspired? Go somewhere new!
Yes, familiar places do offer visual rewards, but at times you just need to get away to get inspired. This doesn’t have to be a major undertaking. Take a short side trip to a garden or park. If you haven’t been to the zoo or the nearest tourist attraction in a while, do it now. Check for colorful holiday festivals. A fresh location can "force" you to be inspired and motivated. Everyone likes to experience new places — especially photographers! -by Jim Miotke and Kerry Drager, from their new book, The BetterPhoto Guide to Creative Digital Photography
