With the big Photoshop World Conference just 6-days away…
…we are all psyched/crazy-busy/excited/exhausted but having a ball doing it all. Can’t wait to see everybody next week – it’s going to be an amazing conference (and if you’re wondering…is it too late to go? Nope — you can still come join us — people are still signing up every day). Hit us up at photoshopworld.com for details/info/tickets. OK, here’s some stuff:
Today at 1:00 PM I’m the guest on the Photofocus Podcast with Vanelli
It’s coming out today – the interview with host, Mr. V himself, Vanelli. :) We’re talking about education (formal vs. informal) and all sorts of stuff. Check http://photofocus.com to check it out, or subscribe to their podcast at bit.ly/pfPodCast
Getting great feedback from my “Where to shoot in New York Travel Photography Course.”
Here’s a comment I saw yesterday from Kevin Scott:
“Loving this course! I have NEVER had a desire to go to NYC, but this is making me rethink that. Regardless, I love all the “Photographer’s Guide to…” courses. Even if it is somewhere I don’t have on my travel radar, I always take away nuggets, from post-processing tips/tricks to just seeing some of the shots that I keep in the back of my mind to inspire me in my everyday shooting. Thanks so much, @ScottKelby for doing these!”
If you’re coming to PSW next week, don’t forget your camera!
We’ve got lots of cool sets, models, and fun stuff to shoot. PLUS, if you’re a Canon shooter, Canon will be there doing FREE sensor cleanings right on the spot. Did I mention it’s free for Canon shooter? Yup. It is.
My band will be rockin’ next Thursday night…
…and after our first set at the Photoshop World Party, we’re doing an ‘Instructor Jam Session” where we’ll be inviting some the many KelbyOne instructors that are musicians to come up and jam with us on a song or two. It will be a night to remember.
I’m doing a book signing…or two!
One at the Peachpit Press booth in the official bookstore, and one at the Rocky Nook bookstore. Both of my latest books (The Flash Book and my just-released Lightroom Classic book for Digital Photographers will both be there in stock).
If you’ll be at Photoshop World next week…
Two things you definitely want to do:
(1) Go to the free Orientation class
If this is your first time at Photoshop World, we have a special crash course just for you. Hosted by Larry Becker, this orientation is designed to make sure you get the most out of your experience. Free and open to all attendees on Wednesday (the day before the full conference kicks off).
(2) Download the App
We have an awesome conference app (for IOS and Android) that you will find invaluable during the conference. The full schedule is in there; directions; events times and locations, and a whole bunch more. Find it on the App Store for iPhones, or on Google Play for Android.
If you can’t go this year…
Then make sure you tune in Thursday morning at 10:00 AM ET (I’ll put a link here on the blog on Thursday morning and on all our social media) so you can watch the opening keynote LIVE. It’s going to be (wait for it…wait for it…) epic!
Also, Brad will be posting shots from the conference next week, so if you want to see what’s happening, make sure you check back here then.
Gotta run — got a lot of work this weekend to get ready for the conference (and I’ve got practice-up on some of my songs, so I remember the chords, the words, ya know, stuff like that.
Have a great weekend, and I hope I’ll see you in Orlando next week!
