    Happy Thursday everyone! Brad here with the latest pimpy... Have you seen the latest Kelby Training Online classes? Some of the newest ones include... Scott Kelby's 10 Essential Studio Techniques Every Photographer Needs To Know - Scott covers the basics of studio lighting, including both strobes and constant lights with a variety of softboxes, how to position them for certain looks, and other basic studio equipment. Moose Peterson's Romancing the Landscape, Part 1 - Moose is out in Monument Valley talking about camera gear, predicting the weather, how to create time lapse videos, and more! Dave Cross' Photoshop CS5 Automation Basics - Dave covers everything you need to know to get started with automating tasks in Photoshop CS5, including the built-in automations, creating your own actions, discovering some hidden techniques, and using automated commands in Bridge. Scott (aka Scott "Claymore" Kelby) and Matt Kloskowski…

    First off, I would like to say that it is an absolute honor to be asked on as a guest blogger on Scott Kelby’s  site.  A very important thing for me is expressing gratitude for opportunities that have come my way, and understanding how the good things in my life have come to pass.  Scott has been on the giving side for me on more than one occasion, both directly and from happenings through the ripple effect caused by the NAPP, and I just can’t say it enough.  Thank You.

    For my few seconds up here on the soapbox, I would like to share with you a quick story and a few ideas that I THINK I know.  I say think with emphasis because I realize that life hasn’t given me all of the pieces yet. I’m here with the rest of you just trying to figure things out while everything around me, as well as myself, continue to change on a day to day basis.  One big thing I know for sure though is that I don’t know everything, and I never will.

    Opportunities

    Of all of the images that I have had the pleasure of dreaming up, or seeing happen before me, one of my favorite that comes to mind was more than ten years ago.  I wasn’t a professional photographer at the time, much less a professional anything. I was working a 9-5, collecting a paycheck, and living a pretty happy simple life.  That is an “uninspired” simple life. A few months prior I had picked up my first SLR from a pawnshop, a Minolta x-700, with a few lenses, pretty sweet deal. (That’s right all you purists, I was a film guy too back in the day. Let go.  It’s okay. I liked the little red light too, and if you miss the smell of fixer and stop bath that much you can always keep a tray of it next to your monitor. It’ll be ok.  8tracks were a great idea too at the time.  I digress…)   I carried that thing with me everywhere because you just never know right?  There I was, driving down Highway 270 in St. Louis, minding my own business when it hit me.  Nope. Not the car next to me, the image.

    Since people have seen me use them on D-Town TV, and in my Kelby Training Classes, I get a lot of questions about where to buy studio V-flats (4'x8' tall reflectors boards, that are white on one side and black on the other---like the ones shown above), so last week I asked my followers on Twitter and Facebook some help in finding a single resource for buying V-Flats (to create the "V" you take two of these boards--and put a thick piece of gaffer's tape between them top to bottom so they form a "V." Then you can use them as reflectors, or fire strobes into them for a large fill, or use them as flags---the list goes on and on. Incredibly handy. We have two sets that we use in the studio, and most rental studios have them as well, but finding them…

    Hi gang, and welcome to the online version of my 5th Annual Holiday Gear Guide (the printed version appears in Photoshop User magazine, which is just hitting NAPP members' mailboxes this week). If you’ve been a faithful reader of this gear guide for the past four years, you’ve probably noticed a subtle change in the title. That’s right, this is the first year that it’s not my “Gonzo Holiday Gear Guide.” When I put the first one of these together five years ago, I honestly didn’t give the name much thought because it was originally supposed to be just a post here on my blog. But it got so popular, the following year we published both an online and printed version. Eventually, it became the cover story, and well—gonzo just sounds kinda lame at this point. In fact, I really have no idea what…

    Hi gang: I had really hoped to have something really meaty for today, but instead we have some shots from a college football sideline shoot I did last week: USF Bulls vs. Rutgers (the mid-air shuttle pass shot above is one of my favorites from the game). Here's Why: OK, it may be partially my fault (OK, more than partially), but Matt, Brad Moore, and RC must share the blame because we all started playing the just-released Call of Duty: Black Ops (on XBox LIVE) at around 9:00 pm, and it is now 1:42 am, and we just this minute signed off, and I haven't written one word yet of today's blog post (well, except for the few sentences you just read, of course), and I'm pretty beat, so this is mostly going to be just shots from the game. The Good News The…

    I know it's Pimpy Thursday, but today is Veterans Day in the US, and I wanted to take a moment to honor and thank the men and women who have served in our country's military, and who fought to defend the very freedoms we enjoy today. America owes you a debt of gratitude for your service and sacrifice, and I just wanted to join in with a heartfelt thanks..
