Photoshop World is Here!!!!!

by Scott Kelby  |  16 Comments

Greetings from fabulous Las Vegas where we are kicking off some of the pre-conference fun today at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino (I’ve been here a few days already as my wife and I snuck out early to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary, which was yesterday, and we have just been having a blast!). :-)

GET YOUR FREE EXPO PASS
If you can’t come to the full conference but still want to check out the exhibits, watch some demos, catch some of the free Expo-floor classes and take advantage of some of the show specials, you can get a FREE expo-only pass — here’s the link. 

THE TWEET UP IS BACK!!!!
Except now it’s called “THE MEET UP” and it’s tonight at the “Eye Candy” bar in the center of the Mandalay Bay Casino (you can’t miss it) and it starts around 9:00-ish. It’s a great place to meet some of the folks you’ll be spending the rest of the week with (I’ll be there, along with all “The Photoshop Guys” from NAPP.

LIVE STREAMING THE OPENING KEYNOTE
Now, I haven’t 100% fully confirmed this yet (because all of my staff is out partying in Vegas tonight), but I believe we are going to be streaming the opening keynote, including Adobe’s full presentation, tomorrow morning (Wednesday) at 9:00 AM PT (pacific time) and if we do, it will probably be broadcast at kelbytv.com/onair (well, that’s my best guess anyway). Hope you can catch it (of course, if we actually do stream it, which I think we are, but hey ya never know. I missed a few meetings).

HOWEVER, I expect there to be some cool stuff and surprises at the keynote (there always is), so make sure you check it out. :)

OK, I’D BETTER HIT THE SACK
Big day today —- our Pre-Conference workshops kick off today, and the final rehearsals for the keynote and all that stuff is happening, so it’ll be a busy day so I’m going to hit the sack. Hope I get to meet you in person today, and here’s wishing you a totally Vegas kinda day! :)

Sometimes, it all just comes together…

by Scott Kelby  |  46 Comments

Anytime I shoot a game, I try to share little tidbits of what I’ve learned in order to help my fellow shooters, so I made this demotivational poster (with a shot from my Patriots/Bucs game last week) to remind us all that Focus is more than just a word — it’s a five-letter word. I have no idea what that means. Enjoy.

Probably The Best Post I’ve Read About Photography This Year!

by Scott Kelby  |  23 Comments

If you’ve followed me for any time at all you’ve heard me rave about the photography of Bill Fortney. He’s been kind of a mentor to me over the years and has taught me an awful lot (and I’ve been blessed to have taught some landscape workshops alongside him over the years as well).

A couple of day’s ago Bill wrote what I think it probably the best article I’ve read about photogaphy this year, and definitely one of my top picks ever. I shared his post earlier this week on Google+ and here are some of the comments from readers:

> “I think this may be one of the best photoblog posts I have ever read. It simply speaks volumes.”

> “Wonderful & inspiring article. Gets me back on track as to why I love photography.”

> “You’re right it did made me think about my own photography..  truly wonderful article.”

> “An insightful treatise! Thank you for sharing it with us. I have tried to adhere to the principles mentioned and am inspired by the well written reminder.”

> “Incredibly profound post!!”

> “Thank you to Bill Fortney (re his “Why Bother?” blog post) for this authentic share. ”

> “I happened upon this post by Bill Fortney today and thought I need to share this with all of my fellow photographers out there who may be in the same situation.  …”

> “An excellent post by Bill, now he has a new fan I had not seen his work before”

> “I’m so glad I stopped to read it.”

Bill’s post is called “Why Bother” and I promise you, if you read it you’ll be glad you did  —- it really has the power to change the way you feel about your own photography and why “Why we bother” at all.

Here’s the link. 

[DISCLAIMER: Within his article Bill lists his five favorite photographers, and I about fell over when I saw my name on that list. That is absolutely not why I'm sharing this article (though that would have been enough reason alone for me -- wink), but the rest of his article is what really struck a chord with me and I imagine many of you share the same struggles as I do with my photography, and Bill's article helped me a lot. I absolutely know I don't deserve to be included with the other four people on his list, but I am humbled, grateful, and at a total loss for words, outside of just saying "Thanks, Bill."]

Last Minute Photoshop World Stuff (if you’re going, or thinking of going, be sure to read this!)

by Scott Kelby  |  13 Comments

Hey gang: I’m getting ready to head out to Vegas for next week’s Photoshop World Conference & Expo, and I wanted to share a few quick things before you (us, we) get there. Here goes:

(1) It’s true — they’re giving away a new D800!!!!
Nikon Professional Services (NPS) sponsors a pre-conference workshop at Photoshop World on shooting concert photography like a pro, and the class actually gets to a shoot a live band on stage — then the best shot (as chosen by applause) wins the new D800. Here’s the cool thing —- the workshop is limited to just 40 participants, so each person has a great shot at winning! There are just a few spots left — and if you’re going to Photoshop World, you can snag one of the last spots. You will totally  love this workshop! Here’s the link (http://bit.ly/cwrX0x) and good luck!

(2) Bring Your Camera
You will kick yourself if you don’t because there’s all sorts of shooting opportunities, including the incredibly popular Westcott Shooting Bays, where they’ve put together a series of very creative sets, all perfectly lit with their TD-6 Spiderlites, with live models in full costume for you to shoot. It’s a HUGE hit with the attendees so make sure you don’t miss it (it’s on the Expo floor).

(3) Canon is there in a big way this year!
The folks at Canon have a large booth with their own demo stage and they’ll be doing live demos throughout the expo, so add them to your must-visit list.

(4) You can get a FREE Expo-only pass!
If you can’t go to the full conference, you can still come and check out the Expo floor, see all the vendors, checkout all the new gear, take advantage of show specials, and even catch bonus expo-floor classes at a number of different theaters, and a kick-butt line up of classes at the Peachpit Press theater. Here’s the link to register for your free pass.

(5) I hope you’ll consider catching one or more of my classes
I invite you to check out some of my classes on the conference track, and my Wacom-sponosed retouching session. Here’s the link to what I’m teaching in Vegas

(6) Dave Black’s class will blow your mind
Dave is just flat out brilliant and can make any topic brilliant but he’s doing a Sports Action live shoot of a world champion gymnast in class, on the balance beam, and what he pulls off is insane!!! He did it earlier this year at the DC Photoshop World and people are still talking about it.

(7) Here’s some other trainers you don’t want to miss!
These are such inspiring, passionate and just amazing instructors that I would recommend you catch at least one of their classes even if the topic isn’t one that’s right up your alley. Try sitting in on a class from Jay Maisel, Joel GrimesFrank Doorhof, Jeremy Cowart, and Cliff Mautner. You are guaranteed to learn and be inspired.

(8) Don’t forget to catch some of the new trainers, too!
I get the job of choosing who gets to speak at Photoshop World so when we bring on somebody new, you know they have to be really special, and these trainers are: Erik Valind, Lindsay Adler, and Tamara Lackey.

Wait, we’re not done — look at the graphic below, then read under it.

(9) The “Tweet-up” is back
OK, it’s called “The Meetup” now (see the graphic above, designed by Corey), and here’s the deal: Come join me and the rest of the Photoshop Guys at the EyeCandy bar in the middle of the Mandalay Bay casino from 9:00 pm to 11pm(ish) Tuesday, September 4 for The MEET UP, (formally the Tweet Up.).

(10) It’s not too late if you want to come!
Although you can’t register online at this point, if you call our toll-free number, 1-800-738-8513 they will get you set-up with a full conference pass and anything else you need.

OK gang, that’s my tips. Hope I’ll get to see you in person in Vegas next week!!! Whoo Hooo!!!! :)
