The Live event at the Javits Center in New York City is already sold out, but if you didn’t get a ticket, or you don’t live near New York City, you can still watch the event as it’s being streamed LIVE on Monday as it happens.

Here’s the link to sign up for the free live streaming. Hope to see you in person on Monday at the Javits, or online!

Have a great weekend everybody, and we’ll see you back here on Monday.

P.S. I’m doing a few sessions in the morning, but then I’m doing a live-shoot (fashion styling by the awesome Sophia Batson) in my session after lunch (starting around 1:15 pm New York Time), and then I’m handing the images off to Katrin and Julieanne to edit, retouch, and finish. Hope you can catch it.

Our own Photoshop Guys, Corey Barker and Pete Collins, share some cool tips on using a Wacom Intuos5 Tablet (and why it’s their go-to tool for photo retouching and editing). At the end of the video they announce an exclusive $50 off discount on the Wacom Intuos5 Medium-size Tablet exclusively for KelbyTraining.com and NAPP Members (this $50 off makes it the best price Ive seen anywhere on this tablet).

The offer (only valid at the official Wacom online store in the USA only) expires June 23rd, 2013. Members can find the Discount Code either on the Kelby Training site (http://kelbytraining.com/) or on the NAPP Member Site:

My thanks to Wacom for making this deal available to our members and subscribers.

Lightroom 5 is now shipping — and to celebrate; one week from today you’re invited to come join me, Julieanne Kost and Katrin Eismann for B&H Photo’s “Lightroom Digital Photography Summit”

It’s a FREE, all-day learning event at the Javits Center, coming up on Monday, June 17th and if you’re in the New York area, you gotta come down (you’ll have loads of fun and you’ll learn a bunch).

I’ll be showing some of my favorite Lightroom tips; I’m doing a live shoot (then handing off the images to Julieanne and Katrin to retouch and finish), plus a lot more.

Seating is limited (and it’s almost already sold out in advance), so grab your seat at “The Summit” right here.

Hope you can join us. See you in New York next week!

(1) Photoshop World Vegas registration is Now Open!
What’s Photoshop Vegas like? Watch that video, and then come join us in September. LOTs of cool new classes, new instructors and new stuff to learn. Here’s the link with details.

(2) Cool new class on Lifestyle photography from Erik Valind
This new class  is getting lots of great feedback (Erik is a really great teacher, and he’s handling a really tough, but really common program and of course, he makes it easy and understandable). Erik explains the class in the video above.

Here’s the link with details on the class. (you can rent the online class for three days for just $9.99, but if you’re already a Kelby Training Online subscriber, of course it’s free).

(3) Thanks to everybody at Henry’s “Exposure Show” in Toronto
Man, what a great show! A big thanks and shoutout to everybody who came out to my Keynote Presentation at the Exposure Show in Toronto last Sunday. Just had such a great time! Really great event from top to bottom. Super diggin’ it!

(4) The New issue of Lightroom Magazine is now available
Issue #5 of our fastest-growing magazine, Lightroom Magazine, is now available on the App Store. There’s a very cool tutorial on portrait retouching in Lightroom, Matt has a great article (and video) on combining images; Rob Sylvan shows you how to use Target Collections (and why they’re so handy), plus a whole lot more. Hope you check it out.

(5) Into Flipboard? Into Photography? Check out my Flipboard magazine “Cool Photography Stuff”
I curate a Flipboard 2.0 magazine called “Cool Photography Stuff” and each day I update it with exactly that. I search a bunch of different online photography resources and when I see something cool, interesting, helpful, or just a really beautiful image, I ‘flip” it into the mag so it’s always very up-to-date (I often update it numerous times a day). Anyway, it’s free, it’s fun, so just search it on Flipboard App (for IOS and Android) When you search, look for a mag from “skelby” — that’s me!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheers,

-Scott

P.S. Don’t forget to join me Thursday at 7:00 pm for our “Beginners Start Here” free Webcast with a ton of photography tips, giveaways and fun stuff to launch our biggest online initiative yet! See you then. 

 

Over the weekend I posted this photo of me holding up a poster I made for the owner of the Audi R8 I shot a few weeks ago. I mentioned I made the poster using Lightroom (and a tiny bit of Photoshop â” just for the type at the bottom), and a lot of folks asked how I put it together so I did the quick tutorial you see below.

The image was printed on our Epson Stylus Pro 7900 printer on Epson Exhibition Fiber paper.

Hanging Prints In My Office
After I ran this video on my Facebook page and on Twitter, I got a new set of questions: “How are you hanging those prints on the wall of your office” so here’s the scoop on that: Those are actually thin shelves that screw into the wall from IKEA called RIBBA that are perfect for clipping prints to. They’re about $10 a section (cheap!). Another option from IKEA is the DIGNITET wire — very hip looking, easier to install (slightly more expensive), but there’s one downside to both: you can’t order them online — you have to go an actual IKEA store to get them.

UPDATE: Hanging clips
Since I released this post this morning, had a few questions about which type of clips I used to hang these. I wish I had some cool thing to turn you on to, they are just metal clips from Office Dept (link). See below. 

One More Thing:
If you missed my behind-the-scenes video of the actual R8 Shoot I ran here on the blog a few weeks back (using the cool new Priolites that are getting a lot of buzz), I embedded it right below so you can check it out (just click play).

Anyway, hope that helps, and here’s wishing you a “kick-butt Monday” (even though you know and I know, that’s an oxymoron). Cheers everybody!
