Whoo Hoo!  Here’s the quick video that describes the latest version (which has LOTS of new stuff â” not just the new features):

It’s available right now at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Direct from us, and wherever cool Lightroom books are sold. NOTE: The book is exactly the same, and works the same whether you have Lightroom CC or Lightroom 6 (just skip the chapter on Lightroom mobile if you have Lightroom 6).

Hope you all have a super-awesome Monday (well, it something to shoot for, anyway), and we’ll see ya here tomorrow! :)

Best,

-Scott

P.S. In case you missed it on my Facebook and Twitter accounts â” I did a post on Exposure.co with my favorite images from my trip to France and Italy last week (here’s the link). I think they look way better over there than they did here on the blog in the book layouts. Sheer size makes a big impact. See if you agree. 

 

 

7 Beautiful Places to Celebrate Planet Earth
I did a post over at CocaCola’s Journey’s website for Earth Day last week on some beautiful places to visit (and shoot, of course), but I didn’t do your average places â” I tried to do some places most folks might not consider at first (like Lookout Mountain and Rock City, shown above). If you have a moment, here’s the link. 

My Advice for New Photographers
I did a short interview over at WPPI’s excellent Rangefinder magazine, and while we talked about a few different topics, one thing we did touch on was some advice for new photographers. You can find the interview online at this link. 

Episode #11 of “The Lightroom Show” Went up late on Friday. Really late
We had a little technical problem on our end (fixed now thankfully), so if you missed it (it was our Lightroom CC launch episode), here’s the link.   By the way, shouldn’t the caption above be “Where the heck is that new episode?” 

That’s it for now. Have a great Tuesday everybody!

More big news for photographers who are KelbyOne subscribers
Lightroom has become such an important part of so many photographer's daily workflow that we really wanted to expand the ways we deliver our Lightroom training even further. Adobe’s launch of Lightroom CC this week gave us a perfect opportunity to take what we learned from having produced an app-based version of the magazine last year, and make the jump to print by including it in Photoshop User magazine.

KelbyOne annual members get the print edition of Photoshop User, and international members receive the digital version [note: U.S. members can choose the digital or print version]. Photoshop User is published 10-times a year, and each issue is 100+ pages, so an annual member would get more than 1,000 pages of Photoshop and Lightroom training a year)

It's a magazine within a magazine
Our first issue will include tutorials from the Lightroom Crew at KelbyOne (RC Concepcion, Mia McCormick, Pete Collins and of course Scott Kelby), along with guest writers and feature articles from some of the best- known names in Lightroom education. You guys know – we take this Lightroom stuff really seriously â” we can't imagine our photography life with it, so we’re pretty psyched about expanding our training in print.

In other news:

(1) Today we’re releasing our new episode of “The Lightroom Show” (our weekly show with Lightroom tips and tricks, hosted by me and RC). We’ll post it at this link. 

(2) If you haven’t checked out our Lightroom Learning Center (with 20 short video clips taking you through all the new features, plus free replays of our four live Lightroom Launch Webcasts), here’s the link. 

OK, gotta run — another busy day ahead. :)

Have an awesome weekend, and we’ll see ya back here on Monday!

Best,

-Scott

P.S. There are a few folks who were having Lightroom CC install problems, and I posted a fix over at our daily Lightroom blog (here’s the link) that helped a lot of folks. 

It has been an awesomely exciting day here at KelbyOne, as for us, news doesn’t get much bigger than this!!!

Adobe launched Lightroom CC today, and we had it covered big time!

1. We launched a FREE Lightroom Learning Center, with 20 videos on all the new features, along with Q&As, details and more. Here’s the link.. 

2. We did THREE live Lightroom CC Webcasts (the fourth is coming up in 15 minutes) at this link (7pm EDT)

3.  GET THIS: B&H Photo made a special deal, just for our viewers, for today and tomorrow. A FULL-YEAR subscription to the Adobe Photography Bundle (Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC), for just $99.99. That is the lowest price I’ve ever seen. Here’s the link (only good thru tomorrow). Thanks B&H – you guys so rock!!!

4. We released FIFTEEN new Lightroom CC full-length online classes covering a ton of Lightroom learning. It’s all on KelbyOne.com right now.

5. There’s a whole bunch more, but I’ve got a run (we’ve live in just a few minutes). I’ll have lots more to share tomorrow on The Grid at 4pm at kelbytv.com/thegrid

See you then!

P.S. If you would help us spread the word about all this stuff, it would be much appreciated! :)

Hi Gang: Happy Monday. It's President's Day here in the US, which is a holiday we love because a lot of folks have the day off and that's pretty much all we know about this holiday (but don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, right?). Anyway, here's what's up:

> I'm back, baby!
My wife and I snuck off Thursday for a Valentine's Weekend Getaway to Portland, Oregon with our friends Moose and Sharon Peterson. Had a total blast, and even had some pretty good weather the whole time (the shot above is from this weekend, but I shot the same lighthouse 5-years ago but on a really gray overcast day). Lots more about this trip later, but I've gotta hit the sack, so hit me up on social for more photos and stories.

> I posted #9 of "What I'd Tell a New Lightroom User"
If you've been following my series, I posted the latest one over at LightroomKillerTips.comhere's the link if you have a sec.

> Thanks for the feedback on "The Lightroom Show"
Just a shout out to everybody who posted such kind comments here on Friday after the debut of our new weekly show. Thanks so much for all the  support and kind words. The next episode comes out this Friday. If you missed the premiere episode last week, here’s the link.

> Sacramento, here I come!
The final tour stop of my "Shoot Like a Pro" seminar is coming up next month (Monday, March 9th) in Sacarmento (come join me for the day â” here's the link).

Then in April I'm launching a totally new from the ground up full-day seminar called "Shoot Like a Pro: Reloaded" and I'll have tour dates shortly, but my first two stops are Salt Lake City and Los Angeles (both in April).

> Rick Sammon and my "Guitar Wall"
Last week Rick and his wife Susan stopped by our new offices, and Susan got this shot of me and Rick posing in front of the left wall of my office, which is a bunch of guitars (I'm holding a Parker Maxx Fly in the photo you see here, but I just got in a Paul Reed Smith SE Custom 24 right before I left for Portland. Hardly even had a time to play it. Anyway, thought I'd share this shot to wrap up this quick look at what's going on this sunny warm Monday here in Florida.

Hope you all have a great day. We'll catch you here tomorrow. :)

Best,

-Scott

P.S. In case you missed it, the incredible Joel Grimes is launching a new full-day seminar tour with us, called “The Photographers Creative Revolution” tour. His first stop is Indianapolis on Feb 23rd, then he’s on to Washington DC on March 25th. Here’s the link with details. 

Happy Friday, everybody!. Here’s what’s up:

One minute and 41-seconds of brilliant advice for photographers
We do an “Inspire Me Monday” piece each week on our KelbyOne Facebook page and this week it’s a short 1-minute and 41-second clip taken from our business interview with Dave Black, and his advice to someone who asked him how to handle a portrait shoot with an athlete is just brilliant. Simple, yet so smart. You’ve got it watch it. It’ll be the best minute forty-one you spend today on your photography.

If you’re a Wedding or Portrait photographerâ¦
We’re doing a giveaway for TWO Full Platform passes to WPPI (the big Wedding and Portrait photographers conference & Expo in Vegas, coming end of Feb/Early March), plus a 1-year KelbyOne Membership (the prize package is valued at $598). Not too shabby. Details to enter are here. (by the way, I spoke at WPPI last year — one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. Absolutely first rate!).

If you’re into Lightroomâ¦
I posted #3 of my “10 Things I would Tell New Lightroom Users” series over at LightroomKillerTips.com – hope you’ll check it out if you get a minute. While you’re there, check out Pete Collins post yesterday about applying presets on import. Really good stuff.

Secrets of Professional Photographersâ¦
Yesterday, on “The Grid” RC hosted sports photographer Dave Black and lifestyle photographer Erik Valind, and the reviews have been fantastic! You can watch it above (I haven’t had a chance to see it yet myself, but I’ve heard rave reviews. Figures, they crush it when I’m not there). ;-)

Shooting Tethered & Lightroom Mobile Studio Workflow
Next Thursday we’re releasing another of my new Lightroom online classes (we release new full-length online classes each Thursday on KelbyOne), and this one is on setting up Lightroom to shoot tethered and then how to incorporate Lightroom Mobile into your own workflow. Keep an eye out for it next week on KelbyOne.

A Big Shoutout and Thanks!
What an amazing week! I had over 1,000 photographers come out to my “Shoot Like a Pro” seminar this week in Columbus, Richmond, and Raleigh and I met some of the most gracious, kind, and just downright fun people during those three days! I’m very grateful to everyone who came out and spent the day with me, and I hope to see you all again next year. NOTE: I made it through the entire trip without buying a guitar, despite visiting three music stores along the way. I think that’s a record for me. ;-)

Catch me LIVE on Monday at ImagingUSA
I’ll be teaching a session on stage at the Canon booth at PPA’s ImagingUSA show in Nashville on Monday, so if you’re at the show, I hope you’ll stop on by and say Howdy.

One more thing:
If you see me in Nashville on Monday, my wife would probably appreciate it if you would please stop me from sneaking off to Gruhen Guitars shop. Last time I was there I wound up shipping back this candy apple red Fender telecaster). ;-)

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! (I’ll be home on the couch recuperating) and I hope to see you back here on Monday!

Best,

-Scott
