by Albert Solan 8 years ago
Hi, I'd like to know what people are using to protect the LCD screen of their Canon 60D. I've read about good Glass Protectors that unfortunately won't let you close the screen. Are there any good gla

zoom on hotshoe

by Roy Schneider 9 years ago

Are Software Certifications Worth It?
by Jim Biffle 9 years ago
To all, Earlier this year I earned my ACE (Adobe Certified Expert) certificate in Photoshop CS4 and I'm currently studying for the After Effects CS4 exam. Then I plan to study for the Premiere Pro CS4

I think I'm done
by Nick Griffin 9 years ago
I have now officially become disgusted with twenty-somethings and think I'm done giving them any consideration ever again. 1) Very talented art director wannabee whose work I was introduced to while j
