My guest this week on “The Grid” was the most awesome dog photographer anywhere, Kaylee Greer (who, by the way, has the cover shot on the new National Geographic magazine “Nat Geo Wild“). On the episode (you can watch it above), she answers viewer’s questions; shares her techniques for dealing with hard to photograph dogs (and tougher to deal with dog owners), and well…she was just awesome. You will love it and learn a lot (she shares some great tricks, too!).

Kaylee is here at our studio filming another online course for KelbyOne that should be released in about four to six weeks. Her first class was such a huge hit, and she shared everything from lighting to post processing, but she’s got so much more to share, so we were out on location with her today filming her next class and we’re super psyched to be bringing more Kaylee your way.

Hope you all have a great weekend, and we’ll see you back here on Monday (well, I sure hope). :)

Best,

I shared this a few weeks ago over on my daily Lightroom tips blog (LightroomKillerTips.com) and I thought you guys over here might find them useful as well. It’s three of my favorite, quick little Lightroom shortcuts. Nothing really earth-shaking here, but just really useful bread-and-butter stuff worth knowing.

Here’s what they are, and why I think they’re so handy:

Hope you find that helpful.

Closing eyes

Very excited to have food photographer Steve Hanson as my guest this week on “The Grid” (my live weekly photography talk show), and we’re taking your submissions now to have your food photography critiqued on this week’s show with Steve.

If you’re not familiar with Steve, here’s a quick video he did for us (below), so watch that first (Steve’s got a great story, and this video has already been viewed more than 300,000 times on YouTube!):

Pretty awesome story, right?!  Here’s the link for submitting your images: (NOTE: submit only food photography images, and only submit 3 images total. Also, make sure your images are a reasonable size for viewing).

Once you’ve submitted, watch the show LIVE on Wednesday (details below):

Who: In-Studio Guest Steve Hanson
What: Blind Food Photography Critiques
Where: http://kelbytv.com/thegrid (we also stream live to my Facebook Page)
When: Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 at 4pm EDT (New York Time Zone)
Why: To learn new ways to improve your food photography

I hope you’ll submit some images, and we look forward to you joining us (we’ll be taking your comments and questions live on the air) on Wednesday. See you then!

Best,

-Scott

P.S. Are you joining us at Photoshop World in Vegas next month? Ya know, you oughta. :)

I’ve already seen comments online saying “…it’s our best episode ever,” and that sure wasn’t hurt by the fact that our in-studio guest was none other than renowned wildlife and aviation photographer Moose Peterson.

Our topic was “10 Things Photographers Should Stop Doing Now!” and man did we cover a lot of ground (including tackling some fairly controversial topics).

An interesting thread between commenters were from people who watched the show live (the Grid airs every Wednesday at 4pm EDT), but then went back and re-watched it a second or even a third time. I hope you find it helpful (and you can watch it right here above).

Tomorrow, on “The Grid, my guest is Adobe’s own Bryan O’Neil Hughes
A lot of you already know Bryan from his appearances during the Photoshop World opening keynote, or from his feature articles in Photoshop User magazine, and tomorrow we’re talking mobile editing apps. You are going to super-dig this episode tomorrow, and of course we’re taking your questions and comments live on the air. Come join us tomorrow at 4pm (you’re going to see some really cool stuff!)

Hope your Tuesday is even better than your Monday!

Best,

-Scott

P.S. We’re also doing a private “members-only” live Webcast tomorrow with Bryan, just for KelbyOne members, and he’s going to reveal some “secret apps” during this exclusive broadcast, including some that members will be able to download tomorrow. Keep an eye on your inbox for the invite. 

A few weeks ago we had super-mega popular concert and music photographer Adam Elmakias as our in-studio guest on “The Grid (and he was a great guest – lots of fun, and amazing images). Anyway, at one point in the show he mentions a particular URL he had registered, and it uses a term, or perhaps a phrase that he innocently is taking at face value, but some people (mostly adults) use that phrase to mean something…(ahem)…quite different. (I edited to just that clip above – pretty short, like 3 minutes total).

Well, as soon as Adam says it, Brad starts giggling and turning red like he’s in high school, and things pretty much go off the rails from there, but the best part is when someone from our staff (Jenn our producer) messages him with what the phrase is used to describe, and…well…it’s worth seeing “that moment” happen live on the air.

Anyway, I thought I’d share it here to start your week off on the right foot.

Peter Hurley is Our Guest This Week on The Grid!
Yup — Peter’s here, and it’s going to be a wild show, even if Peter doesn’t innocently use a naughty phrase like Adam did. Hope you can join us — Wednesday at 4pm (New York Time Zone). Here’s the link to use on Wednesday for the live broadcast (we’re taking your comments and questions, on the air, as always).

Hope you have an epic Monday!

Best,

-Scott
