  50. Nice offers today as every thursday, i can use that 1month KT subscription.

  51. Comment. Really need the kindle edition of your book on Ps4. I know I’m behind the times but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn last night! Ok no I didn’t, but my mom still goes on about the gift you gave her last year and said to say thank you again for an amazing Christmas!

  52. Hey Brad & Scott,
    I don’t want anything free today. I just want to comment on your new class. I totally dig the way you explain the difference between cheap and expensive flashes. You are right too. I never noticeed the “thing” on the girl that you fixed last until you pointed it out. Once you did, it’s all I saw.
    As for yesterday’s post with Brian. He mentioned that he takes lessons from you in his teachings. Ditto with me. I think the main think of “Yours” I have added to my lectures is humor and the ability to laugh at myself when I make mistakes in front of the class. And. I am always open to learn new things from my students. Too many instructors out there put the face out there that they are the ultimate resource. On the contrary, we can all learn from others. Some what to do, some what not to do.
    You rock guys,
    Mike

  57. I would love a 1-month subscription. That class sounds like what I need.

  58. I became a Napp member during your holiday special, but couldn’t pull off the Kelbytraining.com combo deal this year. A one month subscription would rock!

  63. Out of curiosity….shouldn’t the class that is being posted in a “Free Stuff Thursday” post actually be free for people to watch? I shared this with my Photography Club because I knew they would be interested, but people are asking if why they can’t watch the video for free if it is being featured on “Free Stuff Thursday”

  64. The class looks good. I would like to check it out with the 1 month sub.

  65. 1 free month is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

  66. Would love to win the 1 month subscription.

  67. Always interesting to see when people come to Sacramento, maybe someday I will actually know how to do more than simple stuff with Lightroom

  68. I would love to win the 1 Month KelbyTraining subscription.

  69. This class looks amazing!

  70. I would love to win the Photoshop CS6 Seattle with RC ticket. Loving the light it, shoot it, retouch it class, especially since I just bought the Joe McNally Ezybox. Perfect timing!

  71. The 1 Month Kelby Training subscription would really help me boost my confidence in retouching.

  72. I would love to learn from KelbyTraining.

  73. i’d love another month of kelby Training!!

Used to be a Medical Photographer in Scotland many years ago. Learned to read upside down from old 5×4 slide photography…feeling upside down digitally and need all the help I can get :)

  84. I NEED a free one month subscription. Thanks for giving one away even if it’s not me.

  85. Would love the free subscription so I can finish a course I was half way through.
