News Quickies

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

Here’s some quick news bits:

Renown landscape photographer Stephen Johnson has a nice interview over at the DIMAcast Podcast. Check out it right here.

I mentioned this photography site earlier in the year, but I just went and visited to “A walk through Durham Township” again, and there’s lots of wonderful new images. Take a moment to soak in some of this beautiful photography. It’ll do ya good. :)

Designorati reviewed three Lightroom Books (Rob Sheppard’s, Martin Evening’s, and mine), and did a  comparison of how the three tackle the topic in different ways. You can read it here.

That’s it for today, folks. I’m off to Photoshop World next week, and I can’t wait to see everybody there! Have a safe, fun Holiday weekend! :)

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

I’m up in Chicago at the convention center setting up for my Lightroom Day (the photo above taken by my buddy Dave Moser), and it doesn’t look like I’ll be able to blog today, but I’ve got some cool stuff for tomorrow.

‘m doing some live shoots today during the class, and if I get the chance I’ll take a shot of the crowd on hand and post it here.

Have a wonderful “Unlikely Blogging” Thursday. :)

Wednesday News Stuff

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

How’s that for an official title? Wednesday news stuff. (You can tell when I’ve run out of ideas). Here’s what’s going on:

  • I’m on my way to Chicago for my Lightroom Live Tour on Thursday, and I’m really excited. I love teaching this seminar, because I get so much feedback during the day, and after the seminar, about how it’s changed so many photographers’ workflow for the better. As a teacher, that’s incredibly gratifying, (and besides; teaching Lightroom is just plain fun).

    Also, I’m very fortune to have two experts on hand to help me field questions between sessions; as Lightroom Alpha Tester Jeff Schewe (from PhotoshopNews.com), who was instrumental in the development of some of Lightroom’s features (in particular, the new sharpening features of version 1.1), will be helping me out, as well as Adobe’s own Terry White, an expert on Lightroom (as you might imagine), and Photoshop, and everything Adobe. I’m really looking forward to it. Can’t wait! :-)

  • My buddy Jeff Revell sent me a link last night a site with just some absolutely amazing landscape photography, from a photographer Uwe Eischens. His stuff is incredible, and if you’re looking for some mid-week inspiration–look no further (click here to see for yourself).
  • If you’re going to Photoshop World next week, I’m delighted to announce that John Loiacono (Senior VP of Adobe’s Creative Solutions Business Unit), will be the featured speaker at the opening keynote. If you haven’t had a chance to see “Johnny L” in action—he’s an absolutely captivating presenter, and totally not a “suit” in any way. He connects with creatives in a way few execs can, but besides his skills as a speaker, Adobe’s keynote at Photoshop World is often used as a platform for showcasing unreleased technology or giving a sneak peek at cool things that are in the Adobe pipeline. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Johnny L. let some new technology get “peeked” during his presentation, so if you’re coming to Photoshop World, don’t miss his keynote presentation on Thursday morning.
  • The latest issue of “David Ziser’s Digital Photography Newsletter” is now online, and it just keeps getting better and better (plus his new “Digital ProTalk” blog is already one of my daily stops). You can check out the August issue (which includes a very slick Photoshop video tutorial) right here.
  • Photoshop wizard Ben Willmore sent me this link yesterday, and I don’t want to explain what it’s about (after all-Ben didn’t explain it to me), because if I do; you won’t watch it–but you must (watch it, that is). This video isn’t about Ben, but it will tell you a lot about Ben. ;-) Here’s the link. You will forward this video link to other people. Blame Ben.
  • There are a couple more important posts today, so if you’d be so kind, scroll down and catch the next two posts.

That’s it from here. Looking forward to meeting lots of great people in Chicago. Have a kick butt Wednesday! :-)

I’m so excited I could burst; my buddy and world class photographer Joe McNally (who’s shot for everybody from National Geographic to Sport Illustrated), will be joining me as part of my Lightroom Live Tour in Honolulu, Hawaii this year, on December 3rd at the Hawaii Convention Center.

As you might guess, I’ll be handing the live shoots I do during the day over to Joe, so the students will get to see a true master at work. I hope you’ll get to join me for this incredible opportunity to see a living legend live with me on my Hawaii Tour stop. You can sign up at PhotoshopSeminars.com

I’m honored to announce that educator Rhona Shand, Undergraduate Coordinator and Associate Professor of Art at Pittsburg State University, is the first recipient of the “Bruce Fraser Photoshop World Memorial Scholarship,” which was created to honor the memory of beloved Photoshop author and instructor Bruce Fraser, who passed away late last year.

Rhona was chosen by Adobe’s own Photoshop team to receive the scholarship, which includes her airfare, hotel, and full Photoshop World conference pass (courtesy of NAPP: the National Association of Photoshop Professionals) as a way of honoring Bruce’s lifetime legacy of learning.

My personal congratulations to Rhona, who’ll be attending the Las Vegas Photoshop World Conference next week, for being chosen as the first recipient of the Bruce Fraser scholarship—one dedicated to a man who has meant so much to so many throughout this industry.
