Don’t worry — if you’re not a KelbyOne member, you can take the 10-day Free Trial and join us tomorrow live for this groundbreaking Webcast. Kristi is awesome (KelbyOne members LOVE her current class on high-end skin retouching), and she’s here taping some new online classes. Tomorrow, I’m excited to be joining her as we talk about the “Unspoken Rules of Retouching” and I think you’ll find this really helpful.

This isn’t one big tutorial — this is a discussion where we talk about the stuff we don’t get to talk about during a tutorial. Of course, we’re taking your questions live, and looking at some real world retouching scenarios and we can’t wait to share all of this with you tomorrow. Here’s the details:

Who: Kristina Sherk and yours truly
What: Live Webcast on the “Unspoken Rules of Retouching” and the state of the retouching industry
Where: http://kelbyone.com/webcast
When: 1:00 pm EDT
Why: We love giving our members a creative advantage

Hope you can join us tomorrow (if you can’t be there for the Live Webcast, we’ll rebroadcast it in its entirety exclusively for KelbyOne members).

Look forward to seeing you then!

Best,

Check this out! The one and only Peter Hurley has organized the first ever “Headshot Crew Cruise” this month (on Norwegian Cruise Lines no less), where you cruise with Peter and his guest instructors from NYC down to Bermuda and back, and you learn and laugh and chill from port to port.

The cool thing is — the training part is free — just get your cabin, and you’re “in” to all the live classes.

Here’s a link with the details: https://headshotcrew.com/crewz/

Really cool opportunity to learn and lounge on your way to Bermuda.

Best,

P.S. Tomorrow I’m teaching this seminar in St. Louis and on Thursday in Kansas City. If you want to come out and spend the day with me, it’s not too late: http://kel.by/SM_SLAPtour 

 

I absolutely LOVE to learn new stuff, and if I get a chance to sit in another photographer’s class, or spend a day in their workshop, I jump at the chance. Here are five (in no particular order) that are coming up that I would really love to attend (and I’m hoping to get to at least a few of these as a student myself).

(1) Frank Doorhof’s Ultimate Workshop Weekend
I remember the first time I saw Frank teach in person. I caught his first class, and then went back three more times, taking notes every time. Frank is one of the people I’ve learned the most from about fashion lightning, and I continue to learn from him every time I get in front of him (that’s me with Frank above). He’s coming to NYC (he lives in the Netherlands) for a three-day intensive Fashion/model photography workshop with a small group of very lucky students. I’m hoping to be one of them. Here’s the link with all the details.

 

(2) Peter Read Miller’s Sports Photography Workshop
Peter is one of the all-time greats of sports photography (he has over 100 covers of Sports Illustrated magazine, just for starters), and he’s doing a hands-on workshop in Atlanta on Oct. 6-11th. I got to attend part of his workshop last time they were in Atlanta, and it was absolutely phenomenal!!! Highly recommended! By the way, the class is mostly about action sports, but working sports photographers wind up doing a lot of portraits of athletes, and he covers that as well, as seen above. (Sign up while he’s still got seats): http://kel.by/1qqC5tv

(3) Lindsay Adler’s Beauty & Fashion Workshop
Every time we have Lindsay on “The Grid” as our guest, or she comes down to tape an online class for KelbyOne, I learn something new. Yes, she does teach lighting, and posing, and all the stuff you’d expect, but her insights in the business of being a beauty/fashion photographer are worth their weight in gold, too! She’s got a seminar, and a hands-on weekend workshop coming up in Vancouver, Canada starting Friday, October 17th, 2014 (the hands-on portion goes through the weekend). I’ve been in Lindsay’s audience at a talk she did for our conference and she was absolutely fantastic, but I’ve never had a chance to take her full workshop. If only they would let me into Canada (long story). Here’s the link — it’ll be amazing.

 

(4) Rick Sammon’s Provence, France photography workshop
Provence has been at the top of my list of places to go for years â” almost got the chance this year but then I had a scheduling conflict and couldn’t go. Broke my heart. Also, I’ve always wanted to take one of Rick’s workshops, because he’s not only a great teacher, but a really great person, and I imagine a workshop filled with fun, laughter, and lots of pictures. So although I’ve missed the opportunity to visit Prevance, and I’ve missed Rick’s workshops, this might be my chance. Plenty of time to plan â” it’s next June. Here’s just in the planning stages, but if you’re thinking (like I am) that Provence in June with Rick might be just amazing, here’s the link. 

 

(5) Joe McNally’s “On Assignment: St. Lucia!” Workshop
If you can imagine how incredible a week with Joe McNally might be, shooting and learning from literally one of the world’s best, in an exotic island location, in literally one of the world’s top-rated resorts (ANSE CHASTANET and JADE MOUNTAIN) then this can be that bucket-list workshop you’ve always dreamed of. I was fortunate enough to be Joe’s guest instructor twice down in St. Lucia, and it is truly an experience you’ll never forget. The resort is just beyond words. The locations where you’ll shoot? Amazing. And the shoots Joe sets up for the class are just astounding. And if all that weren’t enough, our own RC Concepcion is the guest instructor teaching you his Lightroom workflow and his Photoshop techniques. It’s this September 14 – 19, 2014 — you’ll learn small flash, how to use it like a pro, and work fast with the minimum of gear. You will lose your mind!!! It’s a very small group, and once it’s full, it’s full so save your spot right now. Here’s the link with more details.

Well, that’s my dreaming for this Monday. Hope to have some cool news to share with here tomorrow (and a short video), so I’ll hope you’ll stop by then.

Best,

-Scott

â¦we’re streaming the Webcast continuously at this link: bit.ly/1rMUkWR 

Above: That’s Matt and me, right before airtime. 

Above: Our crew in the control room getting ready 15-minutes before air.

Thanks to everybody who tuned in last night â” we had lots of great questions and discussions, plus RC did an amazing job handling the biggest number of giveaways we’ve never done (including two Wacom tablets, four $100 B&H Gift Cards, loads of books from Peachpit Press, A Canon Pixma Pro 1 printer, and a Canon point-and-shoot, and more). Really a great night and we got loads of great feedback from people who are now ready to make the jump to Lightroom.

Here’s the link to the free streaming rebroadcast: bit.ly/1rMUkWR 

Hope you all have an awesome Tuesday (and don’t forget, “The Grid” tomorrow at 4:00 pm LIVE).

Best,

-Scott
