Here’s the Free rebroadcast of Wednesday’s “Blind Photo Critiques” from “The Grid”

by Scott Kelby  |  19 Comments

Wow — we are getting just wonderful feedback from this episode, and we’re now going to be making these blind critiques a regular feature each month. It’s only our second one, and we’ll continue to tweak the process and hopefully improve in our delivery and advice each time.

I saw a comment yesterday from a viewer on Google+ (+Amy Johnson) and she so gets it. She wrote:

“Thanks so much for another great episode this week! Never new that watching critiques of other peoples’ photos could be so educational!”

Matt and I do these blind critiques with our class at our hands-on workshops, and invariably we read in our workshop evaluations that it was one of the most valuable learning experiences of the entire week.

I posted the full episode here, and I’ll do a post here next month before we do the next one so you guys will have a chance to submit some images for consideration. Thanks to everyone who participated in our show this week. :)

Pano from my Tampa Seminar on Tuesday

by Scott Kelby  |  1 Comments

 

My buddy Larry Becker took this pano with his iPhone of the scene at the historic Tampa Theater during the final US stop of my “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it” tour this past Tuesday.

Really had a fun day (and the theater was an amazing venue for a class like this). I have one tour date left, Saturday April 28th in London, England (I already have two hundred+ photographers signed up for the event).

Hope you can join me there (link).
