Some training opportunities

Hey all,

Karyn Spencer passed along this list of training available in the area this spring. I was planning to have you attend the Nebraska Press Photographers seminars, but I thought I’d pass along the others as well.

There is some excellent, inexpensive training in our region this spring. Here’s a list in case you haven’t heard.
