We Need Photo Walks in China!
Although we already have more than 800 walks around the world, and more than 15,000 people already signed up for walks, there’s a massive country that only has three Photo Walks—China. I really want to see Chinese photographers get the chance to be a part of this event, so if you’ve got a connection with any photographers in Mainland China, can you let them know about the Photo Walk, and see if we can get some walks going in Bejing and other major cities around the country. I would hate to see China left out. Here’s the link with all the details, and thanks for helping me spread the word over there.

This Friday, Let’s Meet Up in New York City
The free NAPP-produced, Adobe Sponsored, “Photoshop CS5 Summit” is this Friday at 4:30 pm, and if you haven’t reserved your seat, better do it quick. Here’s the link with details.

New Online Class from Photoshop Hall of Famer, Dan Margulis
I’m really psyched to announce that we just released the second part of a brand new online class at KelbyTraining.com from Photoshop legend, and the father of modern color correction, Dan Margulis, called “There are no bad originals, Part 2.” It’s an amazing class that will challenge you, and get you thinking in new ways. It’s not for “newbies,” by a long shot, but if you’re ready to take things up a big notch, catch Part 1, and this new Part 2. Here’s the link.

By the way; though I don’t always mention them here on the blog, we add at least one new class every week on Kelby Training Online, and we’ve got brand classes from Joe McNally, Wedding photographer Cliff Mauntner, and Moose Peterson all coming out in the next few weeks.

McNally Invades The UK July 23rd
I guess Joe McNally won’t be leading a Photo Walk on the 24th of July, because he’ll be in London, England on the 23rd teaching off camera lighting, as we take his tour to the UK for the first time ever. Here’s the link to reserve your seat (this one will be sold out in advance!).

It’s 1:26 am—I’m hitting the sack!
That’s it for tonight folks. Have a kick-butt Tuesday!
