Photoshop World Registration Opens Next Week
I can’t wait to tell you what we have in store this year for the Photoshop World Conference (including some awesome new instructors we’ve added to the roster, some fun new events, cool new classes, and lots more). Registration opens next week for this year’s conference in Las Vegas. Awwwwyeah!

I’ll post a link here when registration goes live next week, but you can start planning now because the official dates are July 19-21, 2016 (at the beautiful Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino). It’s going to be (wait for it…wait for it…) epic!  :-)


Rebroadcast of our Canon Total Gear Head Live Q&A
On Wednesday afternoon we did a special live Q&A exclusively for KelbyOne members featuring two of the super genius tech guys at Canon (Rudy Winston – DSLR tech guru seen above right, and Brent Ramsey -DSLR Video guru seen above left).  They were there to answer questions about the newly announced Canon EOS 1D X Mark II, and we have the rebroadcast now available and the questions were just pouring in.

The feedback we have received has just been phenomenal, if you’re a KelbyOne member, you can watch the rebroadcast right now at this link. (if you’re not a member, you can take the free 10-day trial and watch it that way, along with all the rest of our classes). Thanks to our friends at Canon for lending us Rudy and Brent – they totally rocked it!



New Online Classes
Yesterday, we mentioned my new KelbyOne online class on Designing Beautiful Wedding Albums in Lightroom, but I thought it was important to let you know about what makes this class different than my existing online class on creating Photo Books in Lightroom.

This class is really about the design of the book – the layout, and creating beautiful looking photo books – that’s the focus of the book — not learning all the Lightroom photo book features (even through you wind up learning those, too). Check out the preview here. 

Also, here’s a peek at some of our other upcoming online classes already taped and in post production:

> Get Up To Speed Fast on the Sony a7R II
> Photo Recipes: Dramatic Lighting
> Using the Canon 600EX RT Hot Shoe Flash
> Design Basics for Adobe InDesign
> Adobe InDesign for Photographers
> Light Painting & Photographing The Stars
> DIY Photography Gear Solutions

Next month we’re taping new KelbyOne online classes with Moose Peterson, along with new classes from Photoshop Retouching Shark Kristina Sherk, and Adobe’s own Bryan O’Neal Hughes on using Adobe’s latest mobile apps, PLUS I have a few new classes I’m taping as well — one on my own simple system for organizing your images, and 10 Things Every DSLR User Should Know. 

Just a quick look at what’s coming your way — hope you all have an awesome weekend (hate to see that football season has ended), and we’ll see ya here next week.



P.S. Houston, Texas — I’ll be there a week from today. Come on out!

  1. Wish I could make the seminar in Houston next week. When are you going to come shoot an NFL game in Houston? I seem to remember you saying at one point that you wanted to shoot a game at every stadium, and that you had never shot one in Houston. The Titans play here every year, so you should have the connections to make it happen. :)

  2. Got my ticket to the Boston seminar a while back when the date popped up on the K1 site. Really looking forward to seeing this, Scott! I’ll be sure to come up to say hi.

    Any news on your TED talk and when it might be available to view?


      1. Scott, I’d be happy to. I promise I won’t wear any Pats gear if you don’t wear any Broncos’ gear. Just shoot me an email with the “deets”, if you want. ????

  3. Wrong place maybe – but wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the SB photographers session on The Grid. Good stuff. I dreamed of being there myself as a college photographer 35 years ago, nice to see who actually got there :) So interesting to hear the concept of how little the guys mess with the tech details of the camera and keep things simple, re: focus mode (I think that’s the Canon term) – SO easy to get lost in the gear options when the image is the object…

  4. So glad you are coming back to Columbis, your Part One class changed much of what I do today vs that snowy day…for the better. Excited to attend the next iteration!

  5. Hi Scott (Again). Your book idea is AWESOME. I made a book of my automotive photography… and while going to my god-son’s wedding in Tennessee, I took a little time to go to Bowling Green, Kentucky and showed my book to the National Corvette Museum. And it got me in! They let me photograph one of the cars they were moving around… so I could shoot it with no barriers! Your’e the man. Thanks for all the tips you provide. (
