This is one of the most creative things we’ve done here at KelbyOne â” the idea started as a class, then it morphed into a documentary and now it has grown into a feature film and we’re just so excited about it. Warbirds is the brainchild of renown aviation photographer Moose Peterson, and the aerial footage, and stories behind the men that flew these Warbirds is just amazing.
Please take just a moment to watch the movie trailer above, and then come and join us for the premiere this Friday. Best of all, it’s free, and Moose will be joining me live in the studio and taking your questions during the presentation. It’s going to be a really fun, “make some popcorn” dim the lights kinda night).
In this class we get a behind-the-scenes view as Jeremy creates unique and dynamic setups in the most unlikely locations, with Scott at his side asking him all the questions that you'd want answered.
Jet away to South Beach, Miami, Florida to meet up with Scott Kelby for the next segment of our On Location Photography with Jeremy Cowart series. Jeremy has an amazing ability to clear away clutter, eliminate distractions, and make his subject the primary focus in just about any setting you can throw his way. You'll be amazed at what can be accomplished with minimal gear and a creative mindset that will surely change the way you view new locations.
For those of you who have seen Jeremy’s two classes we shot a couple of years ago out in Venice Beach, California, you know what I’m talking about — Jeremy is just amazing at find portrait locations just about anywhere, and then he uses simple light (just one light), and directs his subject to come up with amazing on-location portraits.
As good as he previous classes were (and they were a HUGE hit), honestly I think this class is even better! If you’re a KelbyOne Online Subscriber, I’d definitely try and watch his class this weekend. If you’re not already a subscriber, you can Rent it, Buy it, or Subscribe (and watch as many classes as you’d like). Here’s the link.
I’ve got some fun stuff to share on Monday or Tuesday, so I hope to see you back here then. Hope you all have an awesome weekend.
It’s official! (Watch the short video above first, then I put together a short Q&A below to help answer any questions you might have). Thanks so much for all your support, and we’re looking forward to a really amazing year (and this is just the beginning). :)
Q. If I'm already a member of NAPP or Kelby Training, is there an extra charge for all this new stuff? A.Nope â” you just get it all now that we've become KelbyOne.
Q. I'm already a NAPP member, what does that mean for me? A.It means your membership just got a whole lot better (even though that's terribly bad grammar, which is probably why we employ so many editors, but clearly none of them were allowed to read this Q&A). You now get access to the entire library of Kelby Training's online classes. All of them. Literally thousand of videos, hundreds of full-length classes. You get it all!
Q. If I'm already a Kelby Training subscriber, what does that mean for me? A.Your world of learning just got a whole lot bigger and better. It means you now have also have all of the benefits of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals rolled into your membership, but at no extra cost to you. Lots more stuff at the same price. It's a mountain of training, and you get it all.
Q. So, if I'm already a NAPP member, how much will it cost when it's time to renew my membership? A.We're "grandfathering you in" at NAPP's original renewal price. Since back in the 1990s, NAPP membership has always been just $99, and so if you're a NAPP member, you can renew your KelbyOne membership for that same $99 (even though the full price is $249). Best of all, your renewal rate stays the same, as long as you don't leave KelbyOne. If you leave, and then decide to come back at some time in the future, you'd have to join from scratch at the new price of $249, so in shortâ¦don't leave.
Q. But what if I'm a Kelby Training Subscriber? A.You're grandfathered in, too! A Kelby Training membership and renewal has been $199 for years, and thankfully that's not going to change for you â” as long as you remain a KelbyOne member. If you leave, and then decide to come back at some later time, you'd have to join from scratch at the new price of $249, so stay up to date and you're locked in at the old price.
Q. What if I have both? A.You can renew at whichever membership you had first. So, if you were a NAPP member, and you later joined Kelby Training, you can renew at the NAPP price. If you joined Kelby Training first, then you'd renew at the Kelby Training price instead.
Q. You really want me to stay as a member, don't you? A. Are you kidding? Absolutely! So much so, that we just doubled all your member benefits without raising your cost. We really, really want you with us, and there's a lot more great stuff coming, starting as soon as Feb 1st.
Q. What can I expect from KelbyOne in 2014? A.Lots of amazing new classes, including more classes on shooting and editing DSLR video, lots more training for graphics programs like Illustrator, InDesign, Muse, Dreamweaver and more. Along with the most amazing photography classes we've ever produced. More classes from your favorite teachers (like Joe McNally, Jeremy Cowart, Moose Peterson, Joel Grimes, Lindsay Adler, and of course me and the "Photoshop Guys"), plus lots of amazing new classes from some instructors that will blow your mind!
Q. What does a brand new member pay? A.It's $25 per month, or they save $50 by choosing an Annual Subscription at just $249.
Q. So does the NAPP member site roll over into the KelbyOne site now? A.Absolutely! Right now, we're still maintaining the NAPP site for our members convenience, but it's all rolling over to KelbyOne. A lot of it is there already, but we've made lots of improvements.
Q. What else is new? A. For our online classes, we now have a completely new, vastly updated player which makes watching the videos even better. Now you can watch our classes at 1.5x speed or even 2x speed. Also, you can pop out the viewer into a separate floating window, and just overall it's a much better user experience than ever before.
Q. What about the App? When can we expect an update? A.Our newly redesigned iPad App is already at Apple awaiting their approval. As soon as they give it the thumbs up, we'll release it. It's much improved, and we're already working on the next update to the App which will include the ability to download a class for offline viewing, so you can watch classes while you're on a plane, or train, subway, etc. without a wifi connection. All good stuff.
Q. Will the magazine still be called "Photoshop User" magazine? A. Yup. It's still the same magazine, produced and written by the very same people.
Q. Will everybody now get all the NAPP member discounts? A. Yup, we're all in this together. KelbyOne will offer the same benefits offered previously from NAPP and KelbyTraining, but now it's just one product at one price from one source. Yay!
Q. You seem pretty excited about this! A. I really am, and this is just the beginning â” the first step, of what we have planned this year. For anyone who wants to learn Photoshop, Photography, Lightroom, Design, Video or Lighting, this is going to be an incredible journey for them. No matter how you like to learn, we've got you covered.

Sorry for the late post this morning — I’m behind on….well….pretty much everything. LOL!! :)
So, last week we started something new for us over at KelbyTraining.com — each week we’re broadcasting one of online classes from Kelby Training Online for free, all-day long, continuously for free. Last week we aired my Travel Photography Class (filmed on location in Paris, France), and this week, we’re airing PART TWO, which is where I do all the post-procesing of the shots taken in Part One using Lightroom and Photoshop, and I go through my entire workflow.
Each week, we’ll be continuously airing a different class, because we’re betting you're going to watch a couple of classes and you'll learn so much that you'll totally want access to the rest of our more than 300 online photography classes (it's only $199 a year for unlimited access or $24.95 a month). I hope you’ll jump over and check out Part Two of my class right here. Here’s the link.
OK, I’m off to Detroit & Dallas for my seminars this week. If you read this blog, I hope you’ll stop me and say “hi.” I always get a kick out of meeting my readers in person. Cheers everybody to a great Tuesday!
