About The Author


  1. Thanks to all my walkers, we had an awesome time!!

  2. I was at RC’s class in Arlington, just bought CS^, waiting for it to arrive, and am blessed that my photography has improved to the point where I can need PS. I give credit for some of that to Kelby Training. the classes there have been helpful. I know its Free Thursday, but I wanted to say thanks for all that the Kelby group and NAPP does. Hopefully I will get deep enough into PS that I will need to take in a Photoshop World event! Rock it, boys!

  3. I missed the photowalk, sounds like there was lots of fun to be had. Hope to see some photos soon.

  64. Hey Brad & Scott,
    This is off topic, but I can’t help myself. In the last few days I’ve watched the 3 Jay Maisel videos on Kelby Training. The way Jay explains his vision really opened my eyes to a new way of shooting. I appreciated the way Scott would ask questions for the viewer since we aren’t there to ask. However, I couldn’t help but notice the wheels turning inside Scott with the answers Jay gave. Scott you looked like a little kid learning from a master. In fact, it reminds me of me when I go out on Safari with Moose & Joe. I really atttempt to hear everything they say.
    I have a question though. One point Jay talked about ISO and what he keeps his at when shooting. Have you changed your settings to match what he does or have you stayed where you were? It seemed quite high for me, even though he is very correct that you could get the shot in bright light or deep shadows.
    Thanks for putting such excellent stuff on Kelby Training!

  65. I’ve got to stop buying these lottery tickets, they are SO expensive.

  66. I am in for any free stuff.
