What Happened To RC?
RC Concepcion and crew went to Gary, Indiana to record our highly anticipated Exposing HDR course.

Sounds great, right? Well, it was going great until something went terribly wrong (we think), but we lost the feed and this is the only footage we have.

What happened to RC and crew? Are they in danger? Will we ever see them again? Will we have to get another instructor for our Exposing HDR course? We don't know, but you can check in at KelbyTraining.com on Thursday, October 31st at 4pm EDT to find out! You have no idea what will be unveiled!

Aviation Photography Workshop with Jos© Ramos
As a photography enthusiast have you ever walked the flight line at an airshow and wondered what it would be like to capture vintage warbirds without the crowds?  Or have you asked yourself what would it take to plan a successful sunrise photo shoot with these amazing pieces of history?  Have you wanted to create images of warbirds with models and reenactors, giving the image that extra vintage feel, but you just did not know where to start?

Throughout the coming months, 3G Aviation Media is partnering up with several warbird facilities to host a series of unique learning opportunities that will allow you to expand your knowledge and skill of photography. Through a mixture of classroom presentation, hands-on instruction and group interaction, they strive to provide their attendees with a controlled environment where they can try new techniques with subjects they may not have readily available.

You can get more info on the upcoming workshop in Peachtree City, Georgia happening November 15-17 right here.
