    The gang at Adorama Camera up in New York City (the Platinum sponsors of my official World Wide Photo Walk), heard I was in town today for my Lightroom 3 Live Tour at the Javits Center, so on Sunday they invited me to lead a local Photo Walk, where we'd go out shooting for a couple of hours, and then head back to Adorama HQ for some Photoshop techniques on how to post process the images from the day. I have to say, it was my most fun Photo Walk ever, because so many amazing things happened along the way. In case it rained, as a back-up plan Adorama hired a professional model we could shoot in the studio, but as it turned out, we had great weather so she came out on location with us, and I did a session a shooting with…

    My bestselling Book/DVD combo: Photo Recipes Live: Behind the Scenes Lighting Techniques, is now available as both an iPad and iPhone App from the iTunes Store. The cool thing is: the App is only $9.95, and includes all the same videos and content. One of the reviewers on iTunes wrote this about the App: "His technique of showing the shot, and then breaking it down how he did it, is very productive. The narrative is fun, not dry. $10 for pro instruction on lighting is a deal, the price of some digital photography magazines." Anyway, if you'd like to check it out, you can find it right here. Thanks to my Publisher, Peachpit Press who developed the App and got it out there. They really did a great job with it, and I'm super psyched to have it available both as a App, and…

    With Independence Day being celebrated here in the U.S. on the Fourth of July, I usually do a quick post on how to photograph Fireworks (which is a traditional part of the 4th of July celebration here). I’m posting the technique that I included on page 175 of my book, "The Digital Photography Book." Here we go: This is another one that throws a lot of people (one of my best friends, who didn’t get a single crisp fireworks shot on the Fourth of July, made me including this tip just for him, and the thousands of other digital shooters that share his pain). For starters, you’ll need to shoot fireworks with your camera on a tripod, because you’re going to need a slow enough shutter speed to capture the falling light trails, which is what you’re really after. Also, this is where using…

    I've had a number of requests this year to go beyond just sharing my camera settings, and share a little more of the "behind the scenes experience" of shooting a major sporting event. So, two weeks ago when I got an opportunity to shoot a Major League Baseball game (Tampa Bay Rays vs. the Toronto Blue Jays), I kept my iPhone's camera handy so I could chronicle some of the goings on for you, (though the image above, which I call "Steee-rike!" [notice the ball at his hip] was taken with my D3). Getting Credentials As anyone who has tried knows, getting credentials to shoot a major sporting event is hard, and getting harder every day. I shoot for a wire service, and thankfully they take care of the credentials for events I'm assigned to cover, but in other cases (like this one), it…

    I only do one landscape workshop a year, and I only do it with my good friend, and world famous landscape photographer Bill Fortney, and we only have 15 spots open, and I'm hoping you snag one of those, because I promise you----you are going to learn a ton, laugh a lot, and come away with some amazing photos and new techniques. This time we're headed out to the Moab, Utah area (Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park), and if you're comin' along, plan on gettin' up early for some amazing sunrise shooting, then later we're back in the classroom for Lightroom, Photoshop, and Photography, and afterward we're back out for a sunset shoot in some of the most scenic landscape locales in the country. Joining Bill and I are photographers Wayne Bennett (who was with us last year in Savannah) and Richard…

    I am just thrilled to announce that our online training class called "A Day With Jay Maisel" is now live at Kelby Training Online (link). This class chronicles my "Day with Jay" as this living legend of photography walks the streets of New York City, shooting as he goes, and sharing some of the most amazing, insightful, thought provoking, and just plain brilliant ideas for taking your photography to the next level, that you'll find anywhere. It truly is absolutely fascinating. In this video, I'm the student, and Jay does all the training. You're there as we start out at Jay's studio, then head out to the streets of Manhattan, shooting everywhere from the Subway to Times Square to a quaint Italian restaurant in Jay's neighborhood. It's an experience like no other, and the feedback we've been getting from Jay's class is literally just…
