    Hi gang: We had an absolutely fantastic seminar in Cologne, Germany on Wednesday. We had nearly 300 photographers there with me for the day, and I met some of the nicest, most gracious folks anywhere. What a warm welcome for my first tour in Europe---thanks to everyone who came out!!! Here’s a few shots from the day, including one of my special guest retoucher, the amazing Calvin Hollywood (if you haven’t caught his classes on Kelby Training Online yet, this guy is insane!!!). Of course, the crowd loved Calvin, and I loved having him there (that's Calvin above hanging out in the back before his retouching session---photos by Brad Moore). (That's Calvin above during his session where he shared his latest high contrast "freaky stuff." Very cool techniques--I took notes the whole time he was on stage). By the time you read this, I’m…

    At my seminar in Orlando on Friday, we were talking about adding high contrast effects to portraits, and how sometimes the effect is too harsh to apply to your subject's skin (it almost makes their skin look bruised) so when I apply the effect to men, I do some masking so reduce the effect where it doesn't work, and I pretty much avoid it on women's skin altogether. So, someone asked if I ever use it on a portrait of woman, and I said---absolutely---I used it on the cover shot for my "Portrait Retouching" book (the shot is shown above), but not on her skin-----I used it to make her necklace and ring really stand out. I also used a little on her eyes and hair (I lowered the opacity of the brush). When it comes to accessories, I really want them to stand…

    While I was on vacation in Maine a few weeks back, I spent a day shooting with my buddies Scott Eccleston of WeeklyPhotoTips.com, and Mark Hensley and while we were out shooting near Portland, Maine I recorded this short tutorial for their site on shooting long exposure black & white. Besides this tip, WeeklyPhotoTips.com has lots of great tips on there all the time, so make sure you head over and check out their site. Definitely worth it! Thanks to Scott and Mark for putting up with me, and for letting me share this with you guys. :)

    Scott Kelby Workshop - BTS from Dave Cross on Vimeo. Last week, I had the opportunity to do something I rarely get to do; an intimate hands-on class where my students and I get to shoot and retouch alongside each other all day long. Dave Cross (Canadian Photoshop Ninja) invited me to teach this one-day workshop at his new studios just outside Tampa, Florida, and I have to say, it was a really wonderful experience. I was following Joel Grimes, who had just had his workshop at Dave's place the week before (if I hadn't been in Canada, I would have paid to be in Joel's class myself), and I have to say---Dave's studios is really set up perfectly for this type of intimate workshop; with a good-sized fully-equiped studio, a really comfortable set-up for both the students and instructors, and he even brought…

    I'm very excited, and totally honored, to announce that at my "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" tour dates in: > Cologne, Germany (10, August), and.... > Amsterdam, Netherlands (12, August)... I have a very special guest on stage with me in each city. Cologne I have a very special guest retoucher---none other than the amazing Calvin Hollywood. Those of you who have seen him on Kelby Training Online know he's one of the most talented retouchers and special effects artists on the planet, and he'll be doing a guest retouch in one of my sessions. How cool is that!!! Amsterdam Joining me in Amsterdam is the hottest rising star of the studio lighting world, and one of the best lighting educators anywhere---Frank Doorhof (ask anyone who has seen his one of his classes---this guy is insane!!!! I've learned a lot of Frank, and…

    When I first heard about Google+ (Google's new social media site), I thought, "Great, just what I need----I can barely keep up with my Facebook and Twitter accounts...." but now that I've been using it for a week or so...I'm kind of digging it. One of my favorite features of it, versus Facebook/Twitter, is how it displays photos you post to Google+. It puts them at a decent enough size, that in most cases you don't really have to click on them to see a larger size. To me, the whole thing just feels a lot more "photo friendly" than the other social media sites, including flickr, and I've been posting some photos there I haven't posted elsewhere (so, not really my portfolio images, but instead images that have a story attached to them. Sometimes it's the post processing, or something that happened during…
