It’s “I forgot to post any news until just now” Tuesday

by Scott Kelby  |  17 Comments

Chicago, here I come!
I’ll be there this coming Tuesday with my “Shoot Like a Pro Tour” and if you’re anywhere in the Chicagoland area you’re invited to come out and spend the day with me (the short video below explains the tour). There’s already over 450 photographers signed up for the day, so if you want to come, reserve your seat right now (it’s $99 for the full day of training; just $79 if you’re a NAPP member). Here’s the link with more info or to sign up. See you on Tuesday the 30th! 

P.S. My next tour stops are Seattle on May 23rd and Los Angeles on May 24th.

Review of Photoshop World
It was my buddy Mike Olivella’s first time to Photoshop World, and every time I saw Mike he was like a kid at Christmas. Mike sent me an email yesterday with a link to a review he wrote on his BaseLineShots blog with his full review, lots of photos, and stories. Here’s the link if you’ve got a sec.

If you’re into aviation photography, this is for you!
The International Society of Aviation Photography (ISAP) is holding their annual conference next month (May 16-18) in Seattle and I’ve got to tell you, they put one of the best photography conference anywhere! The shooting access they get, and the quality of instructors (Matt Kloskowski is teaching there this year), and the camaraderie between the attendees makes it really a blast (I’ve been to three of their conferences so far, and I’m an ISAP member as well). Can’t recommend their event enough — absolutely a steal at $275 (if you sign-up before the 26th. Afterward it’s still just $300). Here’s the link with more info.

A big thanks to everybody who follows me on Twitter!
Last week I was psyched to hit 100,000 followers on Twitter, and I wanted to thank everybody there for the follows. I answer a LOT of questions there because the answers can be so short and sweet, so if you’re not following over on Twitter, come on over (here’s the link). Many thanks for the follows everybody!

This weekend? It’s Hockey Workshop Time!
Oh yeah! Hockey baby!!! Our professional hockey photography workshop is on again this weekend! Looking forward to hanging with Scott, Mike, and photographers from all over the world. Can’t wait! #kickice!

My Portfolio Update Continues
I’m still working with portfolio consultant Stella Kramer (link) on my portfolio — will be for a while now (by the way, people like Dave Black and Jack Reznicki had nothing but great things to say about Stella when I saw them at Photoshop World  — they had worked with her when she was a magazine photo editor). Tweaked the Sports portfolio some more and I updated my regular portfolio so the background color is white (seen above); then I consolidated Football and Sports into just one category; I consolidated Travel & Landscape into one category (yes, I greatly lowered the number of images in each); and I got rid of the personal category (it lives over on the Sports site). Still lots of work to do, but it’s progressing.

Taping an online class with Peter Read Miller
Late next week (after I get back from my Chicago seminar), I’m spending a day taping an online class for Kelby Training Online with a legend of Sports Photography, long-time Sports Illustrated shooter Peter Read Miller.

I asked Peter to do a very specific class which I think it going to help a lot of shooters out there. He’s going to go sport-by-sport and show exactly “what makes a great sports photo!” For example, if you’re shooting tennis, where should the ball be in the frame (and does it need to be in the frame). If so, what makes the best position; which angles are best, what should your shooting position be, and exactly what are you aiming for during the shoot? (and so on). I took his workshop up in Atlanta and he had some amazing insights into exactly this type of stuff — so much so I thought it would make a brilliant online class, and I can’t wait to hear what he has to share.

I’m pretty much heads down right now on a book project
I know, like always, right? When I write a book I really have to kind of shut everything off and just focus, so if I don’t respond to emails in a timely fashion (or later than usual. LOL!), or I’m about impossible to reach by phone, or if my blog posts go up late for a few weeks (ahem), well, at least you’ll know why.

Thanks everybody, and here’s wishing you a fantastic Tuesday!

A Quick Look-Back at Photoshop World Orlando

by Scott Kelby  |  11 Comments

(Above: Here’s a peek at “Pre-Conference Workshop” day, the day before Photoshop World begins).

Wow — What an incredible week! I’m gonna skip the 1,000 words and just let these short videos tell the story. Our video crew (led by Erik Kuna) produces these each day during the conference, and then at the Wrap Up Rally at the end we show them as part of our closing ceremonies and it really gives you a wonderful day-by-day insight into what happens during the Photoshop World Conference & Expo.

(Above: Here’s a look at “Day One,” including the opening Keynote [Top-Gun Theme] and our party at B.B. Kings).

My personal thanks to everyone who was a part of our East Coast Photoshop World Conference & Expo — can’t wait to see you all again in Vegas in the fall. Hope you enjoy the videos till then. Cheers, —Scott

(Above: Here’s our look at the final day, ”Day Three,” and the wrap up of an incredible week!)

Lastly, here’s a few of my favorite photos from the week, (Photos by Brad Moore and Anthony Newman):

Scenes from Pre-Conference Day at Photoshop World Orlando

by Brad Moore  |  2 Comments

Hey gang, Brad here with a few shots from our day of pre-conference workshops at Photoshop World Orlando. I’ll be sharing photos from Photoshop World here throughout the week every chance I get. No guest blogger or Free Stuff Thursday this week since we’ll be sharing news and events from the conference!

Of course, there was plenty of fun to be had at the Real World Concert Photography workshop with Alan Hess and Scott Diussa (and Big Electric Cat, who performed for the class and will be performing at tonight’s After Hours Party!)

Corey Barker talked about all things Channels, Selections, and Masks.

RC Concepcion helped people prep for the ACE Exam

Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch talked self-publishing in their APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur workshop

Dave Black tackled Lightpainting 101 with live models and various sets

And we ended the day with the Poolside Meetup, where attendees and instructors had a chance to mingle and get to know each other before the start of the conference!

Check back here after the opening Keynote for more image from Photoshop World Orlando!
