We are now just 11-days away from my 8th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk™. We're getting close to 950 photo walks already organized in cities all over the world, which is awesome. We’ll have a lot of fun, we’ll make lots of great pictures, and we’ll make a lot of new friends in the process. This is all great, but we're also trying to do something much more meaningful. You've heard of talking about “Walking with a Purpose” and we say that because we're using this worldwide event to raise money for the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya. They need our help in a big way each year, and we can really make a difference by helping us all hit our goal of raising $50,000. Here’s how: (1) We are encouraging each walker to find it in their heart to donate just $1 to the Orphanage. You can do…


I am so excited to tell you about my brand-new book — it's kind of my 'greatest hits" book, because I took just the very best tips and most useful techniques from ALL FIVE parts of my "Digital Photography Book Series" (all five books are different), and put them into this one single new book called "The Best of the Digital Photography Book Series."    It's due to ship around October 2nd (13 days from now), but you can pre-order it right now (Amazon has it for only $16.73 and Barnes & Noble for $16.49) and be the first to get it. If you're a KelbyOne member, you can order it direct from us at a full 40% off! [IMPORTANT: the cover at Amazon isn't the same as the one you see above - they're showing the first mock-up cover, not the actual final cover above, but you'll get the…


That’s right! It’s Friday and you know what that means – It’s “Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks” Friday!

The collage you see above is only one part of today’s trick, which has a whole bunch of steps, but every single one of them is easy, and you’ll learn all sorts of cool things along the way, so don’t let the amount of steps dissuade you. By the way — the US Military makes loads and loads of images available for download for free — just do a Google search and you’ll find about a bazillion to use to practice along. OK, here we go:


Scott, are you serious? After all the heat you took over: (a) Buying your first Apple watch, and (b) Then returning it for a full refund, you're going to buy another one? Really? Yes, really. Here's a quick Q&A on why: Q. So, I thought your big problem with it was that you didn't want to take your watch off each night to charge it? Isn't the battery life still the same? A. Yes, that was absolutely my main gripe — I like to wear my watch at night, but apparently that's when it should be charging. Q. So what changed your mind? A. Apple releasing Watch OS2 (supposed to be tomorrow I believe). It has a new nightstand mode that lets you lay it on its side while charging on your nightstand - it flips the watch face sideways, and if you need to see the time in…


Hi Gang: Sorry for the late post today (I’m still up in NYC – supposed to have gone home last night but the weather didn’t cooperate), but better late than never (at least, I hope that’s what you’re thinking). Anyway, today’s is a ad I was in a Web banner for a test-drive of some Olympus cameras, but of course as a Canon shooter I don’t have any photos of Olympus cameras, so I used a shot of a 5D Mark III (photo by Brad Moore) and it’ll do the trick.

NOTE: If you want to follow along using the same image I used here: here’s the link (right click on it to download).

There are actually three cool techniques in this tutorial
So it’s definitely worth giving it a try. Here goes:
