If you’re looking for some help processing the images you capture this weekend, Kelby Training is the place to go! For under $5, you can get a class on taking your photos to the next level, from some of the best instructors out there!
Making Great Photos in Bad Weather Coming very soon to KelbyTraining.com is the latest class from Joe McNally, Making Great Photos in Bad Weather! How often do you plan on doing a location shoot, only to look outside and realize how crappy the weather is? Luckily, Joe’s here to share his years of experience and wisdom with us so we can keep shooting and make great images anyway!
When I first started working with Joe, he created a picture that, to anyone who wasn’t there, looked like it was lit by the sun pouring in through a window just out of frame. Only thing was, it was pouring cats and dogs outside. That was the first time I realized how easy it really is to get the picture you want, despite the fact that mother nature isn’t cooperating.
So, keep an eye on KelbyTraining.com early next week to catch this class as soon as it goes up!

Hey everyone, Brad Moore here with a couple of quick updates on the contest and social aspects of the Worldwide Photo Walk. A lot of people have asked about submitting photos to the contest and sharing them online. If you just want the deadline dates, you can see the full schedule here. If you want a bit more info on how everything is happening, here’s the rundown of how we’re doing everything this year…
Walker Photo Contest Each walker will be able to submit their one best photo taken during the Photo Walk to the contest. After your walk on October 13, you’ll go to the Photo Walk website and log in, then go to your Walk Page. There you’ll see where you can upload your image to the contest. We recommend the photos be no larger than 1MB in size.
You’ll have until October 22 to submit your image to the contest. You are not required to submit anything to the contest if you don’t want to. But, if you do, you’ll have a shot at winning some pretty awesome prizes!
Leaders will then have until October 29 to pick the best photo from their walk. From all of those photos, Scott Kelby will choose the Top Ten Finalists and one Grand Prize winner to be announced on November 9 . Those photos will also be voted on from November 9 – November 16 for the People’s Choice Award!
If you have questions about copyright and usage rights, you can get the full skinny on all that right here. The short version is, you agree to let us use your image to help promote next year’s Photo Walk. We don’t sell the images or claim any ownership of them.
If you want info on using Google+ for the social aspect of the Photo Walk, keep reading on the next post!
Google+ for Social Sharing In previous years, we’ve promoted Flickr as the social sharing channel for the Photo Walk. This year we’re going with Google+ instead! This is where you can share lots of your photos and experiences from the Photo Walk. It is not where you submit photos to the contest. Just want to make that clear distinction…
If you’re new to Google+, watch the video from RC Concepcion above. Below are a couple more videos from RC that he put together showing just how you can use Google+ to your advantage for the Worldwide Photo Walk.
Hey Kelby Crew!! Thanks for tuning in to this video post that we put together for you! This clip is all about the business side of photography and is an excerpt taken from our business DVD that we recently put out called “Harvest, The 3 Step To Growing a Thriving Photography Business.”
While it is extremely important to work on your craft and be great at the technical side of photography, we can’t, as small business owners, neglect the management and entrepreneurial side of things.
Michael Gerber, writer of the E-Myth, says that we need to have all three of these areas (the technical side of shooting pics, the management side and the entrepreneurial side) all functioning together if we want our businesses to truly succeed. We hope that you enjoy this excerpt and don’t forget to focus running a great business!
We’re just four days away, and it’s not too late for any photographers you know to join their local city walks as part of my Worldwide Photo Walk this Saturday.
So….I was hoping you might help me spread the word, so as many people as possible have to opportunity to participate in walks. If you could put the word out on your Facebook pages, Twitter, Google+, your blogs, photo club bulletin boards, and anywhere else you think it might help. You can even grab some graphics to use right here.
