Kelby Digital Photography Tour

digital_photography_book

You probably already have this book (it’s the #1 bestselling book on digital photography ever), and if you like that book, you’ll love Scott’s brand new tour based on the book series! When I started to take my photography more seriously this was one of the 1st books I read from cover to cover. It certainly filled in a lot of gaps for me and I learned a ton.

If you don’t have the book, here’s the link (you’ll love it!).

He also wrote three bestselling follow-ups to the book, Volumes 2, 3, and 4 (all different content).

Well Scott is about to kick off a tour that is based on his Digital Photography Book series (and is taught by Scott himself).

Here’s the link for more info on the tour. Even if you can’t make the tour, you should definitely check out all four books. They also come packaged as a set here.

Once again I wanted to pause for a few moments and thank all of you who came out for the Adobe Create Now World Tour! I enjoyed seeing you all in New Jersey, Baltimore, Milwaukee and Chicago. The venues were packed to capacity with almost every seat taken in every city. The reception was overwhelming. Here are a few quick captures from this week on the road…

Even after adding more capacity twice, Milwaukee still sold out faster than any other city!

Here’s a 49 second look at the Milwaukee event

Great turnout and great venue in Baltimore. Some decided to make the trip to see me a second time after seeing me in DC. Thanks!

Trip Report: Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It with Scott Kelby

 

What do I do on my week off? I hop in my car  and drive 4 hours up to Toronto to see Scott Kelby do his "Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It Seminar".

It's not often that I get a chance to actually sit in on someone else's classes. I go to Photoshop World twice a year and I see a list of great glasses, taught by world class instructors and then I sigh because I know that either the class I want to take is happening at the exact same time as one of the classes I'm teaching or I have some other show duty that prevents me from attending.

 

This means that when I have an opportunity to take another instructor's class, I grab it! 

 

I would dare say that I've learned most of what I know about photo retouching through my buddy Scott over the years and although I'm quite comfortable doing portrait retouching I'm always eager to learn something new.

The Adobe CS5 Pharaohs Tour in Cairo – Photo Trip Report

I'm headed back from Cairo as I write this quick post to thank everyone who showed up and supported the CS5 Pharaohs Tour in Egypt! It was an amazing turnout with standing room only. I had a blast, took lots of pictures, met some great new friends and was photographed more in one day than I have been in 10 years 🙂 I'm totally wiped out and therefore I decided to wrap this trip up with more photos than words. Enjoy…

Yes I managed to work in a Fashion Shoot 🙂 – ok back to work!

 

The turn out was absolutely incredible with some traveling as far as South Africa to see this event!

 

They treated us like Rock Stars! I was floored by the number of fans that were on hand to have the photos taken with us and to take photos of us. I'm truly humbled by the response!

 

Yes we made it to Historic Old Islamic Cairo. This is a "must visit "if you're in the area.

 

Special thanks goes out to the Adobe User Group Managers in Cairo! You guys are awesome. Thanks for making me feel so welcomed.

 

That's all I have time for now, I'm about to board my next flight. See more of my photos here and once again THANK YOU CAIRO! I shall return 🙂

I’m headed to Cairo next week!

It's time to head to the Middle East/Africa for my CS5 Masters Tour! Of course I'm looking forward to seeing all the Adobe Creative Suite users in Cairo as well as the numerous photo ops. So I'll be blogging on location throughout the week with a hectic schedule. If you're in Cairo I look forward to seeing you there. It's my first time back to Egypt since 1990.
