Quick Hit Monday: Quick In and Quick Out Today

Good morning everybody,
I'm in and out pretty quick today because things are really ramping up around the studio. It's a week before Photoshop World and my book deadline is due this afternoon. I've got the last five chapters uploaded to Kelby Media over the weekend and things are sure to start shaping up really quickly. I'm pretty fired up about the whole project! I just need the screen grabs for the last two chapters and we are good to go. I can't wait for all of you to see it. Anyway, lets get on with a quick quick hits for Quick at Monday.

Quick hit Monday
Pro Photography Show Podcast
I mentioned last week that I was a guest on the Pro Photography Show last Thursday. I just received an e-mail from my buddy and fellow blogger Gavin Seim who said that the podcast is live. He's got it setup that you can download it to your iTunes and listen to it at your convenience -- pretty cool. As I said last week it was quite a lively conversation and a very enjoyable experience.
One thing I've noticed that Gavin has done is also to include the favorite links from all of us participating in the discussion along with the links to all the things we discussed. I think you'll find a good set of resources available. Fellow blogger, Kerry Garrison, liked the Lens Pen which is a new device for cleaning your lenses and also cleaning your CMOS sensors. I checked out their site [link] and it looked like a nice product.

Anyway, cruise on over to the Pro Photography Show [link ] and give it a listen and give it a read. I think you'll enjoy the trip – lots of good stuff.

Heading To Detroit - Day Long Program
I also want to give a quick mention about my upcoming program at the Detroit PPA. I'm presenting an entire day in Detroit on April 6, 2009 9am - 5pm. This program is quite a bit different program for my Digital WakeUp Call tour which starts two weeks from today! In Detroit I’m talking about composition, lenses, and cameras. What is really sweet about this program is that they have lined up models and a church. We’re all going on location where I'll be shooting and then projecting the images as I'm shooting them – very cool!

I've been doing the same kind of thing at Photoshop World for the last couple of years and the attendees just love it. We’ll head back to the hotel review the images and discuss the images. I’ve got a few more surprises in store too so I hope to see you Michigan guys and gals at the program. You can check out the program PDF right here just scroll down a bit to read all about it.-- or contact Scott Green at 248-388-6947 to register.

Look at Florida here we come.
That's right in just two weeks from today will be landing in Jacksonville, Florida to kick off the Digital WakeUp Call tour. LaDawn and I are pretty fired up about starting. It's always great fun to meet the photographers that we meet on the road and share stories. Our first four cities from March 30 through April 3 include Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, and Fort Lauderdale. Hope to see you Florida guys and girls at one of the four cities. Check out all the info right here. Don’t forget to use PROMO CODE DWCDPT09 to save $20 on registration. Did I mention we are giving away $250,000 in door prizes!!

Photoshop world is right around the corner
That's right were heading to "Photoshop World 17 - Game On" in Boston next Monday. I love Boston because of the great people in that part of the world and also the great food which is probably why they're such great people. I've got my Pre-Con kicking off on Tuesday and then I'll be presenting again twice on Thursday.

What's exciting for me this time around is that I'm presenting a brand-new program on Lightroom 2. I'm targeting the program to those people who want to see how we use Lightroom with regards to a wedding/portrait studio. I'll be showing you all the tips and tricks I picked up in the last year working with the program. I'm pretty excited about the program so please come up and say HI if you're in Boston next week. LaDawn and I will also be available Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in our booth at the Tech Expo. See 'ya at the Game!

Hey gang that's it for me today. I've got to get back to pulling prints for the book. I promised I have things totally wrapped today. I hope to see everybody tomorrow for another episode of Technique Tuesday. I'm not sure when its going up but it will be up sometime tomorrow. On that note everybody I'm saying Adios, -- David


  1. Thanks David. It was great having you on. I realized later in editing that I should of plugged you up a bit more, but you just slid so easily in the the panel that it was like you'd been there before.

    We'll have to do it again. Look forward to your workshop... Gav

  2. Just too bad your tour won't come to Europe!
    Anyway, I'm looking forward for your book, keep us informed! Is there any place where pre-orders can be made?
    Just for the record, just started watch your latest training @ Kelby Training. Great stuff you have there! Thanks once again! Bruno
