That’s it for today. If you’re one of the winners, we’ll be in touch soon!

  1. I’d love to know how to shoot a Wedding as I’ve agreed to do one this fall, any help would be greatly appreciated. Like a DVD on how to!


  2. The wedding DVD from f-stoppers would be great to win. I always wanted the Peter Hurley DVD from f-stoppers but would rather spend my money on my NAPP membership. Man, that sounded great, and best of all, I don’t have anything brown on my nose…lol

  3. I have done a couple of weddings and I really want to get into doing them more. Having the Wedding DVD would be great and would really help to jump start my wedding photography business!

  4. Not wishing to denigrate Mr. Chavez’s 35 page eBook at Peachpit, perhaps Adobe should have taken the lead in providing a consolidated write-up on the CC on a dedicated webpage. This could have possibly forestalled the backlash from the photographer community. It could have explained the use, plan cost, and possible future of the CC and provide a user community feedback directly to Adobe instead of bits and pieces researched all over the web by many others. While Adobe has been allowing others to document their products such as Kelby Media, I propose that their direct involvement in giving us details into the CC would have prevented much of the negative response.

    With the upcoming release of LR5, the upgrade to Photoshop CC, and the possible bundling plan of both, I hope Adobe chooses the proper sequence in order to give the photographer community to best of options.

  5. It would be great to win the FStopers DVD on How to Become a Professional Wedding Photographer. After 20 years of being an amateur, I was asked to be the wedding photographer for some friends of mine. Boy there’s a lot I do not know about all the things wedding photographers have do to. I would thoroughly enjoy getting a copy of this DVD.

  6. Any chance Kelby Training will be coming to San Diego soon?!! I don’t know if I can make it to LA on the 24th but would love to attend on of your seminars! Keep up the great work!

  7. I am today a member of kelbytraining, but I see that napp members also can login? I also see that the price for napp members are lower?? Is it true that I can instead become a napp member and get even more for less ?

  8. Would love to win the FStoppers dvd. I shot one wedding with a low grade camera years ago. Now I have a DSLR camera now. Nikon D300. Thanks for the opportunity.

  9. Looking forward to seeing RC and Pete at On the road tomorrow. While I’m at it, will throw my name in the hat for the Wedding DVD. Thanks!!
