A Day With Jay Maisel DVD – Win It Before You Can Buy It!
Legendary photographer Jay Maisel has a new DVD entitled A Day With Jay Maisel – Two Part Series that’s due out on February 20th, but we’re friends with Jay so we have the early hook up. In this DVD, you’ll join Jay Maisel and Scott Kelby on a walking tour of Jay’s favorite places to shoot in New York City. They walk the bustling streets of the Big Apple – talking about theory, technique, and the art of finding photographs among the faces and architecture they find along the way.

All Access: Your Backstage Pass to Concert Photography
Alan Hess just released a book that’s been years in the making, All Access: Your Backstage Pass to Concert Photography! If you’ve been to Alan’s classes at Photoshop World or watched his (and Scott Diussa’s) class on Kelby Training, you know he’s the go-to guy for all things concert related. Not only does he cover concert photography from A-Z in this book, he also includes Pro Tips from other concert photographers, lighting directors, musicians, and photo editors.
I (Brad Moore) am honored to be included in Alan’s book, along with my buddies Scott Diussa, Drew Gurian, Hali McGrath and others. You can see the full table of contents over at Alan’s website, and leave a comment for your chance to win one of two copies of this book!
Blind Critiques on The Grid
Yesterday Scott and Matt tried something new on The Grid. Viewers were invited to submit photos to be considered for blind critiqued on the show! I went through all of the submissions and chose people at random, grabbed their images, and put them in numbered folders so that Scott and Matt wouldn’t know whose images they were. From that pool, they chose the ones they thought would be the most helpful to critique, then gave their feedback on the show.
According to our live viewers, this was one of the most helpful and appreciated episodes we’ve done! There’s a good chance the guys will be doing another one of these in the future, so keep an eye out on Scott’s Google+ and Facebook pages for news on that.
That’s it for this Thursday. Leave a comment for your chance to win one of these great prizes!
