Hi everybody – I’m back from a whirlwind trip out West – three seminars in one week (LA [seen above], San Francisco & Seattle), plus a talk at the Canon Experience Center in Costa Mesa. Had a really fun time, and met some really cool people along the way. Thanks to everybody who came out. OK, onto what’s up this week:
The Eclipse is here
Hope you caught Erik Kuna’s excellent post on Friday called ‘7-tips for shooting the Eclipse’ and if you didn’t, here’s the link. Erik and Kalebra hosted ‘The Grid’ this week and their topic was photographing today’s eclipse and there’s lots of great info that episode as well, so I’m embedding it here below. Hope you get some great shots!
I’m back at HQ now, so I’ll be on this week’s show, broadcast live, this Wednesday at 4PM ET. Hope you can join us this week.
2017 Worldwide Photo Walk Update

New Photo Walk Prize Category for Kids
More and more parents are bringing their kids along on our Photo Walks, and getting them involved in this social photography event, and so this year, with Canon’s gracious help, we launched a new prize category for the competition for kid’s under 16-years-old, and the winner in this Youth category gets all this stuff:
How cool is that!!!! A big high-five to Canon, and all our sponsors who stepped up big time to support this new category for our youngest walkers. :)
My September Seminar
I’ve only have one Lightroom seminar date coming up in September (I had to reschedule Houston and Dallas due to a scheduling conflict), but it’s in an awesome place — Denver, Colorado. Hope you can join me for the day.
Good luck tonight at the eclipse. Here’s to staying safe, and getting some once in a lifetime shots! :)
Would really love to see the return of a one year KelbyOne subscription. A lot of us already have the Photoshop for Digital Photographers book
This eclipse picture is making rounds on Facebook:
Would love for him to be one your guest bloggers. I’d be interested in the planning that went into this.
Ok, nothing against kids..(I have 5 kids and 9 little grandkids.) I love kids and I love photography, but if I was to partake in a photowalk, I would not be happy if people brought their kids. Seeing strollers and listening to kids (which is the stuff I deal with everyday when doing daycare) would not be my idea of fun…it is what I want to get away from for a few minutes. Why do kids have to be included in absolutely everything? Having prize categories for kids will encourage people to drag all their kids along. This is just my opinion, and I realize probably everybody will think it is great to include kids.
