PSA Image Analysis Course Grad – Joe Kennedy

Written by Hockomock Joe on . Posted in Above and Beyond

I have been added to the list of graduates of PSA’s Image Analysis Course. I now join HDP members, Rich Reynolds and Phil Holt with this distinction.

The program, offered free to PSA members, is overseen by Jon Fishback, FP, ARPS. He published a short text (also, a free pdf) on how to review images with emphasis on using our personal voices. When the student has read over the text, a series of  twelve lessons will be emailed out. Each lesson presents two images for the us to review and add comments. Jon provides immediate comments on our viewing of the images.

 I would highly recommend this PSA course to all!
