    Two or three weeks ago, I started getting emails and reading articles about a new photo-sharing site for pro photographers called 500px.com, and after a dozen or so people sent me emails asking if I was on there, I finally signed up to see what all the fuss is about, and now that I'm on there, I'm really glad I did. (Above is how your personal photo page looks on an iPhone, and when you click on a thumbnail, you see the larger view shown on the iPad). A free online portfoli0? I'm listening.... For those of you that follow this blog, you know I've been struggling for the past year in getting an online portfolio that looks decent on the Web and on mobile devices like the iPad and iPhone, and with RC's help, I finally got one in place. The only downside…

    W0w----what a day!!!! We had a crowd of over 520 photographers at my seminar on Wednesday in Toronto, and at that we still had to turn away more than 100 photographers because we were sold out in advance. As I write this, it's my birthday, so I'm going to keep this kinda short, so I can get back to birthdaying. ;-) I Love Canada! I have to say, I knew Canadians were friendly people, but this was just over-the-top! Everybody I met could not have been more gracious, helpful, and just downright nice. It started at the airport when I got to the Air Canada ticket counter and realized I had forgotten my passport. As my wife raced from the office, back to our house, and then to the airport in record time, everyone at Air Canada could not have been more friendly or…

    Thanks so much to Scott and Brad for inviting me to share my thoughts here! I’m a longtime fan of all things Kelby so this is a real treat. I was told I could write about anything which is great but also a little overwhelming. So many topics! How do I choose? I decided to write about how I approach environmental portraits and the role location plays. Location, location, location! The old real estate saying about the importance of the right location definitely applies when it comes to creating compelling environmental portraits. The way I think about it, the locations I choose for portraits are like stages for my subjects to act on... How should I decorate that stage? What kind of set design is the right one for the person I’m photographing today? What defines the person I’m photographing? What do I want…

    .....back in the original post (it shows the percentage that voted for each). It doesn't matter which one you voted for, because since this is art it's all personal opinion and there is no wrong answer. What I did want to do is tell you how each one was processed as a post-processing learning exercise: #1) If you chose the first image (shown above) it was created using 5-bracketed images and then all 5 were compiled into a single HDR image using Photoshop CS5's built-in HDR Pro feature. After it was compiled (using the "Scott 5" setting from my Photoshop CS5 Book for Digital Photographers), I applied the Glamor Glow filter from Nik Software's Color Efex Pro 3 (using the default settings) to a duplicate of the background layer, then I lowered the Opacity of that layer to 50%. I probably should have gone…
