    Mornin' everybody. I wanted to wrap up the week with a quick trick for creating realistic backgrounds for compositing, so here goes: When I was in Seattle for my "Shoot Like a Pro" Tour, before the seminar kicked off in the morning, Brad and I went just outside the convention center so I could create some real shallow depth-of-field backgrounds I could use in Compositing. I did this mostly because I hate how it looks when you take an in-focus background and try and "fake it" by adding a massive Gaussian Blur or Lens Blur filter in Photoshop. Above: I had Brad stand in the street, and I zoomed-in fairly tight on him with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, at f/2.8 so the background would be way out of focus (as seen here). Once I was focused on Brad, I would hold the shutter button…

    Cowboy Stadium has been at the top of my list for stadiums to shoot for a few years now, and yesterday I finally got the chance. I had only seen it from the outside, a few years ago when I was doing my "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" tour in Arlington --- it's within walking distance of the convention center where we hold my classes, and it's just an amazing feat of architecture and design, and when I found out I I'd be here a day early, I reached out over Twitter to find a contact with the Cowboys, and before you know it I was talking with Shannon Gross, Social Media powerful overlord for the Cowboys (and as luck would have it, a photographer). Our shoot was set for 2:00 pm yesterday, and I was planning out my shoot in the morning when…

    Sorry for the late post this morning --- I'm behind on....well....pretty much everything. LOL!! :) So, last week we started something new for us over at KelbyTraining.com --- each week we're broadcasting one of online classes from Kelby Training Online for free, all-day long, continuously for free. Last week we aired my Travel Photography Class (filmed on location in Paris, France), and this week, we're airing PART TWO, which is where I do all the post-procesing of the shots taken in Part One using Lightroom and Photoshop, and I go through my entire workflow. Each week, we'll be continuously airing a different class, because we're betting you’re going to watch a couple of classes and you’ll learn so much that you’ll totally want access to the rest of our more than 300 online photography classes (it’s only $199 a year for unlimited access or $24.95 a…

    Above: One of my favorites from the game. Shot at 6,400 ISO. No noise reduction. OK, it wasn't a pretty game, and it didn't end the way I was hoping, and we had a long rain delay (well, Lightning delay), and I got home hours later than I expected, and I'm still pretty damp from the rain, plus I forgot some important stuff, and just overall....I loved it! :) Above: Here's an iPhone shot of my "Office" for game day. Ahhh, the glamour of sports photography. They really spoil us with perks like free power outlets and fold-up metal chairs in the workroom. There's almost enough for everybody. ;-) I actually have lots to share about the game, the gear, my new fancy-dancy multiple card reader, and my long list of mistakes off the field and in my post-processing, but unfortunately, it's pretty darn…

    While we were teaching at Photoshop World last week, we launched a brand new way for people to experience the awesome online training we're producing over at Kelby Training Online --- now you can join us each week for a new, completely free, online training course, taught by a who's who of the world's top pro photographers. Come and go as much as you like and watch whenever it's convenient, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. We kicked things off this week by airing my class "Shooting Travel Photos Like a Pro" filmed on-location in Paris, France and you can jump over and watch it right this very minute (it's a continuous free broadcast all week long, until Wednesday and then a new class will start airing). I hope you'll check it out, because I'm betting you're going to watch a couple of classes…

    Since Adobe announced their Creative Cloud subscription-only business model, I've been saying the same thing again and again --- "... the deal just isn’t there for photographers yet." Well, that all changed during the opening keynote at Photoshop World last week in Vegas when Winston Hendrickson (Adobe's Vice President of Engineering for Digital Imaging, and a serious sports photographer himself), announced a better deal than I was ever expecting: if you have any previous version of Photoshop (all the way back to CS3), you can get the combo of both Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 for just $9.99 a month (as long as you take them up on the offer by Dec 31, 2013). Much better than I was expecting I had been talking with Adobe about a deal like this for photographers since they first announced the subscription-only plan, and the number I had been…
