connectCuba Hey gang, Brad Moore here with some great news! If you missed the Connecting with Cuba live webcast with Scott Kelby on Tuesday, it's now available to watch at your convenience (as you can see, just above this). It was a great hour+ packed with beautiful photos, of a beautiful country, taken by a beautiful man ;-) Seriously though, Scott was joined by RC Concepcion, and they had an engaging conversation about Scott's recent trip to Cuba and what it was like to do street photography there. They also discussed the logistics of traveling to Cuba and interacting with everyone there, among other things. Give it a watch above and feel free to leave your feedback in the comments section!
