Hey everyone, Brad here with the latest news:

Kelby TV is running a free photo contest from now until October 31, sponsored by Dell and Intel! The winner will receive a brand new Dell Precision M6500 laptop (the same laptop used in Photoshop Wars at Photoshop World)! Visit KelbyTV.com/photocontest for all the details. (Voting is open to everyone, submissions open to U.S. residents)

Tomorrow is the day, London! Hundreds of photographers have already signed up for Scott’s Photoshop for Digital Photographers seminar in Islington tomorrow, but you can still show up and register at the door.

If you can’t make it to the seminar in London, Matt Kloskowski will be bringing the same seminar to the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle on November 18! You can get all the details and sign up right here.

Remember Scott’s report from Moab where he photographed the mountain biker at Slickrock Trail? Tom Bol‘s Photographing Adventure Sports class over on Kelby Training Online was filmed at the same location! He covers everything from portraits to getting unique action shots, so go check it out!

Would you like to spend a week at one of the most beautiful resorts in the world, learning from Joe McNally and Scott Kelby? Here’s your chance! There are only two spots left for The Hot Shoe Lighting Workshop in St. Lucia. You can see Scott’s report from last year’s workshop here and email Lynn here if you want to take part in what could be one of the most memorable experiences of your life (and I’m speaking from experience :) ).

If you’re a digital photographer and haven’t been watching DTown TV (featuring Scott and Matt), you’ve been missing out! Each episode has tips for shooting, getting the most bang for your buck, guest photographers, giveaways, and more. The latest episode features…

  • Scott with some tips for beginners on choosing which camera and lenses to buy
  • Larry Becker with his Cheap Shots segment in which he discusses cleaning dust out of the camera
  • Wedding photographer Cliff Mautner shares advice on shooting wedding processionals and recessionals

Scott Bourne recently asked Scott Kelby to be a guest on his Photofocus podcast where they discussed Lightroom, shooting in harsh light, using bright backgrounds for portraits, photographing fall leaves, clam shell lighting, and a WHOLE bunch of other great topics. Click here to check out Episode 53 of Photofocus.
