Our topic: Busting Camera and Photography Myths (based on something that happened at my San Francisco seminar on Monday). This is going to be a really fascinating show, with both +Trey Ratcliff and +Joe McNally joining +Matt Kloskowski and me, and we've cool giveaways, and our special "Ask us really personal questions" segments, and well, ya just gotta be there.

I haven't had a chance to really go through my shots from the 49ers/Giants game on Sunday quite yet, so instead, I thought I'd turn this into a teaching moment and share some tips on shooting football---the kind of tips  you're not likely to find anywhere else. ;-) TIP #1: What this shot needs is....more goal post (see photo above right). Without the goal post clearly visible in the shot, how does the viewer really even know what sport they're seeing? Is it ice hockey? The 100mm Men's Freestyle? Doubles Tennis? Who knows without a strong visual cue like that icon of football, the venerable Goal Post. Seeing it lets you know in an instant that this is football, and a four-point touchback is just moments away. "I've got a fever. And the only More Goal Post." --- Legendary football photographer Bruce Dickinson "If…

Andy Spliethof, the Leader of the Medford, Oregon Photo Walk. There were so many good photos, it was really hard to choose one winner, but I found myself coming back to this image again and again. Its composition, color and energy really come together to make a fun, captivating image. I posted the other Leader photos in an Album over at my Google+ page that were in the running right up to the end and I thought they deserved some recognition, too. Here's the link.  Congratulations to Andy, and to all the leaders who submitted such great images for our first Leaders Competition.


Hi Gang: I have really good news, and even better news. First, the good news: (1) Through sales of the official Worldwide Photo Walk t-shirts, this year once again we raised just over $7,000 for the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya. How cool is that!!!! Now, the even better news: (2) We're not done. Rob Jones, of Towner Jones Photography (the wonderful, big-hearted guy who coordinates our whole t-shirt store) really wants us to hit our goal of raising $10,000 for the children this year, and here's his plan: For every Official Worldwide Photo Walk t-shirt you buy before the end of November, Rob (and Towner Jones Photography) will kick in an ADDITIONAL $5 per shirt to the Orphanage. You have to love a guy with that kind of heart and compassion (Rob, you SO rock!!!!!). Here's the link to the Official t-shirt store. If…
