For the past few months, we’ve been quietly testing a new membership tier for aspiring photographers who have wanted to join KelbyOne’s Pro Plan but the $19.95 a month was just a little out of their reach. Well, this new lower-priced tier has been such a hit, that now we’ve made it official and we’re starting to spread the word. Here’s how it works:

This new tier is called the KelbyOne Plus Plan, and this new plan gives users on-demand 24/7 access to stream more than 300 of our most popular online courses on Photoshop, Lightroom, and photography for just $9.99 a month. There are no long-term contracts and subscribers can cancel anytime.

At just $10 a month, that averages around just .40¢ a course annually. That’s a seriously incredible value, especially when you see individual classes being sold out there for $49, $99, even $299 for just one class. Also, this new Plus Plan has a world-class instructor roster, including Peter Hurley, Joe McNally, Lindsay Adler, Moose Peterson, Jeremy Cowart, Joel Grimes, Kristina Sherk, Jay Maisel, Matt Kloskowski, Terry White, Dave Black, and Kaylee Greer, among others (of course, I have a bunch of courses in there, too).

This new plan, at just $10 a month, with no long-term contracts, and the fact you can cancel anytime, it’s going to open the doors to a lot of folks who wanted to join KelbyOne but just weren’t ready for our Pro Plan yet. We’re really excited about where this going, and to be able to welcome so many new members to this level of education. I do hope you’ll check it out.

Here’s the link with more details, and you can sign up right there, too. Hope you do, and we’ll see you in class. :)

Have a great Monday everybody, and we’ll catch you back here tomorrow for Travel Tuesday with Dave.

Best,

Hi, gang and greetings from the Homewood Suites here in Lansing, Michigan (here for my seminar tomorrow). First, a big shout-out to the 250+ photographers who spent the day with me yesterday in Raleigh, North Carolina — we had such a great time. Can’t wait to go back next year with my tour — thanks to all the awesome folks who came out. Incredibly friendly, fun crowd.

OK, I’m tired as heck (it’s 12:46 am here) — been working all day on two big projects, and I’m beat, but I wanted to quickly share with you a few places that I’ve been fortunate enough to visit, and I want to share some stories and photos from there, hoping to inspire you to pack your camera bag and your luggage and get out there and capture the world. Here are some places I think you’d love to visit and photograph:

Iceland
I know, everybody’s going there now. There’s a reason. So much beauty, and so easily accessible by car.
Here’s the link to the story and the images.

Lisbon
Beautiful. Clean. Safe. Inexpensive. Awesome. It will be the next big place to visit. Go before everybody does.
Here’s a link to the story and the images.

Australia and New Zealand
It’s not exactly right around the corner, but it’s so worth the effort to get there. You will love it, and its people.
Here’s the link to the story and the images.

Venice, Italy
There’s just no place like it. A photographer’s paradise, and amazing food to boot!
Here’s the link to the story and images.

Paris, France
It’s Paris! That’s all that needs to be said.
Here’s the link to the story and the images.

Valencia, Spain
There is so much to see here, old and new, classic and ultra-modern.
Here’s the link to the stories and images.

Italy’s Amalfi Coast and the French Riveria
It’s a bit more French Riveria, but they are so close, why not see both?
Here’s the link to the story and images.

Dubai
Never a better time to visit. It’s like jumping into the future.
Here’s the link to the story and images.

London
I could so live there. So much to this vibrant city.
Here’s a link to the story and the images.

Prague & Budapest
A river cruise of a lifetime. To get to see these two great cities…totally loved them both!
Here’s the link to the story and the images.

Rome, Italy
Rome is….well….it’s like the Paris of Italy. So much to see and do (and eat).
Here’s the link to the story and images.

Venice (again?)
Yup. I went twice. Plus, this trip had the Dolomites of Northern Italy. Worth a trip by themselves
Here’s a link to the story and images.

 

Marrakech, Morocco
One of the most fascinating places I’ve been to. I so want to go back.
Here’s a link to the story and images.

 

Lofoten, Norway
It feels like I was just there a couple of weeks ago. Hey…wait! ;-)
Here’s a link to the story and images

OK, now it’s 1:23 AM
I’ve got a seminar tomorrow – I’d better hit the sack.

Thanks for letting me share these wonderful places with you. I sincerely hope you get to see them all, and many more! I wish you great adventures, lots of great photos, and memories that last a lifetime.

Have a great weekend!

I’m very excited to announce that a limited number of my prints are now available through Photographic Fine Art Gallery YellowKorner, both in their 75+ galleries around the world (including galleries here in the US in California, New York, Chicago and up in Canada in Toronto, too), and from their online print gallery as well.

The images are part of my “The Great Indoors” series, and you can view them and purchase them online right there.

Thanks to the folks at YellowKorner — I’m delighted to be in their gallery (I wish I had realized they had a gallery in Bergen — I would have stopped by for sure when I was there a couple of weeks ago).

Hope you all have a great week and don’t forget to catch Dave William’s travel photography column here tomorrow. :)

All my best,

-Scott

P.S. On Wednesday I’m in Raleigh and Friday in Lansing. Hope I’ll run into there. 

Tip of the hat to UK-blogger/photographer/awesome guy Brian Worley who shared this tip at some point, and darn it’s a good one — it’s how to use a feature in Lightroom to find out which lens (or lenses) you use the most. Deceptively simple.

STEP ONE: In Lightroom’s Library module; in the Catalog panel on the left, click on ‘All Photos.’

STEP TWO: Press the backslash key [ \ ] to bring up the Library Filter across the top of your thumbnail preview area. Click on the Metadata tab up top (shown circled below in red).

STEP THREE: If it’s not already selected, in one of the columns choose “Lens” as the column header (also shown circled in red above), and it will instantly display the number of images you took with each lens you own (as shown above, where not surprisingly my 70-200mm f/2.8 is my most-used lens). My 14mm isn’t far behind. Click on any listing, it will display just those photos taken with just that lens. The stuff that Lightroom does behind the scenes for us is really impressive.

Thanks, Brian! Also, please check out Brian’s Guest Blog post from April of this year. Great stuff (as always).

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Best,

-Scott

P.S. Next week I’m teaching my Lightroom seminar in Raleigh (Wed) and Lansing (Friday). Come out on (it’s 100% money-back guaranteed if it doesn’t totally rock). Here’s the link for details or tickets. 

Yesterday we did a special Holiday episode of The Grid all about how to take great fireworks shots. Erik (the real Rocket Man) Kuna and I cover everything from The Gear to the techniques to the post-processing in Photoshop and Lightroom and lots of helpful tips along the way.

We get right to it from the start (we have a lot to cover), and if you’re looking to make great fireworks shots tonight, we give the exact time-tested recipe of settings that can’t miss!

Here’s wishing and your family a happy, safe, and fun 4th of July. Hope you get some great shots! :)

Best,

-Scott

Well, the images are mostly from Norway’s Lofoten islands, but if you’ve never been, I hope this makes you add them to your travel list. It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen without a doubt.

Here’s the link to my Adobe Spark photo story (with behind-the-scenes stuff, too) if you’ve got a sec: https://spark.adobe.com/page/UfdOthc5pG4MS/

Thanks for giving them a quick look. :)

Have a great Monday everybody — it’s going to be an awesome week!

Best,

-Scott
