> Join me Wednesday Night for a FREE online Webinar called "A Walk in Rome"
I did one of these after my trip to Cuba (called "Connecting with Cuba") and after last year’s Paris Photo Walk with “A Walk in Paris” and they were really well received, so I thought we'd do one about my images and photo book from Paris last week. If you're into travel photography, I've got lots of practical photography and Photoshop tips for you, PLUS a review of the Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-f/6.3 lens for full frame cameras, and I'll be taking your questions and comments live on the air.

> A Different Perspective on This Past Week’s Photo Industry Scandals, PLUS How to Not Hate HDR (Well, not as much anyway)
This week’s episode of “The Grid” should be a wild one, as we’re talking about the recent scandals within the photography industry (but we have a different perspective on it), and although we’re not going to be able stop people from doing HDR (and we shouldn’t), maybe we can help them spot the telltale signs of “bad HDR” along with how to avoid it. It all starts with admitting you have a problem. LOL!! ;You do not want to miss this episode, which airs (as always) LIVE every Wednesday at 4:00 pm ET at this link.

  1. Sounds like some great classes coming up on Kelby Training.

    Unfortunately I can’t get them to load on my IPad any more, I get through to the site and get the dashboard etc but when I click to watch the lessons it wont load. I used to be able to watch via the IPad but now I get a meaase saying there is an incompatibility issue or the server is down.

    Has something changed now? I used to enjoy being able to watch material when out and about instead of sitting and watching it on my home computer.

  2. Would love to see Scott teach in DC. I have some free time and it would be a great use for it.

  3. As a federal worker who is being forced to continue working for “free”, I’d love to see Scott’s seminar. That way I can start working on gettting a second job to support my first job.

  4. Hi Scott,
    You mentioned the use of Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-f/6.3 lens for full frame cameras and also the 18-200mm for crop sensor cameras. I sort of get the reason, but couldn’t one use the 28-300 on a crop sensor as well? What would a shooter give up or gain?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    • Hey Mike, I think I can answer your question. I’ve used the Tamron 70-300 on a D300 with great results. However, the 1.5x crop factor on the Nikon crop sensor cameras changes that to 105-450. Great for zooming in on wildlife, but terrible for anything wide. The 28-300 would be around 46-450 on the crop sensor. The 18-200? 27-300! So that’s why Scott recommends that lens on a crop sensor camera, as it’s the same range as the 28-300. You absolutely can use that lens, but you’ll lose the wide angle, and gain on the zoom end. Hope that helps!

  18. Hi Scott-Thanks for your unending enthusiasm on the blog. Put me in the hat for the tickets to your DC class

  19. I’d love to chat with you about sport shooting–especially the D1X–and keeper/junk ratio.

  20. I’ve gone to many Kelby Training seminars, and would love to attend this one in DC, but funds are tight right now and I so I still haven’t signed up for it. I hope to attend as I always learn something new and enjoy the live training environment and seeing the photography community together. There’s also lots of goodies received in attending. These seminars are a good investment.

  21. Utilizing what I’ve learned from NAPP and Kelby Training on my shoot! Love to come to the seminar in DC!

  22. I’d love tickets to DC!

  23. Scott: I have three young children and two camera bodies plus two speedlights… need I say anymore? I NEEEEEED to come to your Shoot Like a Pro Tour. Pick me. I mean, “please, pick me.” (….manners).

  24. Starting a photography business is not easy… I have been shooting with my wife for a few years and we are taking that leap of faith and venturing out into the market. We have recruited our 17 year old who has become a natural, but needs a quality piece of equipment. If you could, if you would, we would be grateful!

  25. If it’s not too late- I would absolutely LOVE to go to the seminar! I just purchased your book on amazon and I’m hoping to improve my skills and become a better photographer. I feel a little lost and I think your seminar will help me find my way.
