  1. OK, so I renewed my Kelby Training last night during the Day with Joe McNally broadcast taking advantage of that coupon for a $30 saving only to learn today that had I waited till cyber Monday I could have saved $50 on my renewal. Rats! Guess I’ll just extend my NAPP membership instead.

    Even though my kids kept interrupting me, I thought the Day with Joe McNally was every bit as wonderful as the days with Jay Maisel. It’s refreshing how open these top pros are to sharing their approach and their thought processes as they take you through a day in their life. I’ll definitely be watching this one again, several time!

  2. Scott:
    Your new video Crush the Composition is a winner. I think it may be the best one you have done. My camera club is already working on a field trip based on your key points on how to get the shot.
