Default Future seminar topics

I think it's safe to say that the first PhotoCamel online seminar was a resounding success, thanks in great part to Jason Hermann, the presenter.

Please use this thread to suggest additional topics you'd like to see covered in an online seminar.

Ideas so far include


Photoshop:
  • masking
  • sharpening
  • bw conversions
Lightroom:
  • the basics of Lightroom 2.0
  • Lightroom 2.0 - essential knowlege
Photography:
  • understanding exposure
  • shutter speed tips/ tricks to get cool effects ect..
  • concepts of capturing light
  • the art of composition
  • the rule of thirds
  • why shoot raw??
  • intro to flash
Business:
  • how to start?
  • marketing advice
  • does equipment matter?
  • stay at home or open a studio?
Also, if you liked the first seminar, please consider donating so that the presenters can be paid for their fine work.

I have two topics to suggest. Lightroom basics (including tricks and tips), and Black and White basics (ranging from composition of a B&W image to conversion and processing).

How about posting a video of the seminar(s) for those that couldn't/can't attend because they have to work or sleep when it's live?
