First, watch that 60-second (or so) video above from Tim about his online class on shooting close-up detail shots of cars. I’ll wait right here.

[insert mental shot of me waiting].

…see that didn’t take long. Awesome, right? I know!

After I posted some car shots I did a couple of weeks ago here on blog, and on my Facebook, Twitter and G+ pages, I had a lot of questions about the lighting and camera techniques and I wish I could take a lick of credit for any of it, but I learned it ALL from Tim’s online classes. He’s really an amazing teacher and he tells you EVERYTHING — he doesn’t hold anything back, which I totally love about him! (He’s the real deal!)

Anyway, if you’d like to watch Tim’s class, we’ve set it up so that TODAY ONLY you can go and watch Tim’s class on shooting close-up detail shots of cars for free (when you go to the link below, you’ll see a button for Rental. It’s usually $9.99 for a three-day rental (our regular price for any 72-hour rental), but today-only the price is $0.00 — free!). I explain how our online class rentals work below, but basically today you just watch for free. Free, free, free! Whee!!!!!

How This Usually Works
Normally, if you rent one of our online courses, you can watch it as often as you like for three full days (72 hours), from the time of purchase. To access rented courses (like this free one), if you don’t have an account, go ahead and create one (it’s free) and go to your “Account Settings” page and your rental course(s) will be listed. Just click the link to watch it. By the way, I know this goes without saying but to watch an “online” course, you need an Internet connection (and it should be a broadband connection unless you are a very, very, very patient person).

One more thing
Tim has five other online classes on shooting cars on Kelby Training already, so if you’re interested in seeing more of Tim’s training, you can sign up for a month and watch them all (along with hundreds of other classes)! or sign up for a year (you save money — it’s around .54¢ a day — crazy cheap!) and watch his classes to death! LOL!!!  OK, while you’re there check out some of mine, will ya?

OK, I get it…..
Hey, isn’t this all just a fancy way to get me to join Kelby Training Online? Yes. Absolutely. But I promise you this, you’ll love it (and if for any crazy reason you don’t, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee, so there’s really no risk, except that you might watch these classes and want to buy a large stripbank softbox. But that’s a given). ;-)

Have fun and enjoy Tim’s classes.

P.S. This is the first time we’ve tried this particular thing, this particular way. If for some reason the link doesn’t work right at the crack of midnight, or the rental thing is grayed out, or if anything isn’t working perfectly and you can’t get to that class right this very minute…don’t freak out. It’s a one-day deal. You’ve got a whole day to get it. We’ll get the link, button [insert a random problem] here, fixed shortly. Thanks — signed, the Voice of Prior Experience. LOL! ;-)

  1. Wait, someone doesn’t have Kelby Training!!? What!?

  2. Kelby Training…..the best photography training out there! My brother just joined a couple of weeks ago during the webinar for new photographers. Well worth the money, and NAPP members get an additional discount, too!

    Scott, we missed you yesterday. Glad those days with no blog posts are few and far between. :-)

  3. Love Tim Wallace. Serious man crush. Yes I will admit it. This is really awesome. Like a cornucopia of Wallace. Know what would make the meal (figure of speech), another Tim Wallace class being released today, on the “day of the Wallace!”

  4. very generous Scott and team. P.S., I don’t think I’ve seen you miss a day of blogging in a long time. Celebrating Canada day?

  5. Thank you Scoot Kelby and folks at KelbyTraining for this opportunity. Learned a lot with this tutorial :) I hope one day to be able to have Kelby training and NAPP memberships to keep on learnig like I learned today :)

  6. I’ve watched all of Tim’s videos and can’t say enough about what incredible tools they are if you want to get started shooting cars. Everything he suggests and covers is so informative and easy to understand it’s just amazing. I’ve tried to replicate his techniques with hot shoe strobes and the same light modifiers and was stunned to see the results. Tim’s tutorials are well worth the investment in Kelby Training, not to mention the tutorials by Joel Grimes, Moose Peterson, and so many others from whom I’ve learned more than I can say.

  7. Thank you Scott for offering this. You’re like the photographic equivalent of a corner drug dealer… giving out a freebie to create an addiction. You’re a somewhat-evil genius.

    Once again… thanks.

  8. Scott and Tim, your training series and photos of automotive photography is excellent (and enjoyable!). Thanks for inspiring me to try. Here’s my first try (using my daughter’s bicycle instead of a car): http://ivanboden.com/2013/06/bike-details/

  9. Before I watch this, I want to know if Tim Wallace subscribes to the Creative Cloud. If so, I’m not watching!

    ….For the humor impaired, that was a joke.

  10. These videos are, I’m sure, great. I have not seen these yet, but every series I’ve watched on Kelby Training are second-to-none. I will make an attempt to watch sometime this week or next since my subscription doesn’t expire for a while yet.
    I, for one, will always have a subscription to KT and NAPP!
