How to Shoot One Handed

I wanted to share this picture with you guys. Its from one of my students who only has one arm, and I couldnt figure out how in the heck she was focusing and shooting with only one hand, so I asked her to send me a picture of her in action. And we thought we had a rough time learning to shoot? Just goes to show if you want something bad enough, you will find a way, and once that way is found, its not as bad as we thought .:)

This is quite impressive if you ask me.

I look forward to hearing from you! | The Video Learning Marketplace

Yesterday at 8pm Eastern, went live. It is hosting the online version of my Photoshop Crash Course DVD, and will allow me to make all of my training videos available to my customers, by single lessons or entire DVD sets. One benefit of this I can shoot, edit and post a lesson all in the same day, and still be able to be reimbursed for my work.

Dont worry, we have over 70 more free lessons coming to the Photography School, this has just given me an extra tool to better serve those who are interested in my training videos.

So much more to come, but I wont say anything until we are live with these new options. I think you guys will be impressed.

A huge thank you to everyone who Pre-Ordered the DVD. It IS still available, now at a higher price of $65, until the DVDs actually ship when it will go up to a final price of $79 for 7 hours of training. Its the best course I could think of and so far I have been hearing some very positive things from those who have started using it.

If you are in the mood for the online lessons only, feel free to take a look:


Pre-Order Discount for PS DVD Ends today at 8pm Eastern

The clock is ticking….at 8pm Eastern tonight, the pre-order discount will no longer be available for the Photoshop Crash Course DVD. By pre-ordering, you will receive a coupon code to save 30% on Michael Andrew Lollipops (this works out to be about $40), which means, yes, you are essentially getting a free PS Crash Course set and the Lollipops for the cost of the Lollipops only. I will be sending the codes out by email, along with your login information for the new viewing site, which means, all those who pre-ordered can be watching the videos tonight!

After 8pm tonight, the price will go up to $65 plus shipping, and once the DVDs are in stock and being delivered (we are looking at a few more weeks) they will be $79 + s/h per set.

Also, the discount on the Lollipops will not be offered after this evening at 8pm.

Nearly all of those who have pre-ordered are already signed up on the site, which we have been testing over the weekend.

Im both excited and nervous. 🙂
