Spent some time shooting in the Morgan Library before it was open to public. What an amazing place.

Oh, there is no book opening. They don't really want anyone thumbing through their Gutenberg bibles

My sign-up page for this year's Worldwide Photowalk is officially live and ready to accept walkers. I am a little behind this year because Photoshop World happened right about how the same time that the walk went live but now it's time to get things moving. My walk will return to the sight of my first Worldwide Photowalk location, the beautiful waterfront of Old Town Alexandria, Va. I hope I see you there. Click the link to sign up for my photowalk or go to kelbyone.com/photowalk to find a different photowalk near you.

So far I would have to say that the Amazon Prime Day is pretty underwhelming. A bunch of deals that are either already sold out or don't interest me. Kind of disappointing for all the build up leading up to it.

What would a holiday be without a few sales. If you are looking for some photography book bargains I got word that my publisher, Peachpit Press is having a pretty good run on photo books this weekend, including my latest on the 7D Mark II and the +Scott Kelby  Lightroom CC book. Hit the link for more info -http://ow.ly/P5qRM

With my new unfinished swamp ash tele body due to arrive on Monday from +Warmoth Guitar Products I wanted to try out some different grain filling options. I am going to stain the guitar blue but I want the grain to really pop so I decided to go with a dark grain filler. I'm using ebony colored Timber Mate that is watered down to a nice slurry. I am testing it on a piece of Oak because the stores around me don't carry any decent woods like ash. All you get are the usual suspects like Maple, Pine, and of course, Oak. Since I needed something comparable to the open grain of the Ash I went with the Oak, which is a pretty thirsty woody.

I have watched a lot of videos on YouTube and the consensus is that if you want the grain to pop under your stain you need to first use a dark stain to fill the grain and then sand back and add the color on top. I thought the ebony would be pretty dark but not quite as dark as I wanted so the other half of the board got the Timber Mate slurry with some ColorTone black stain added. I haven't sanded back yet but I can already tell that adding the stain to the Timber Mate is the way to go. I'll be sanding and staining the oak next to see some color results and will add those once I'm done.  This is my first time doing a transparent finish and I'm going to take my time and get it right the first time, hopefully. If anyone out there has tackled similar projects, I would be happy to hear your words of wisdom.

I've done three of these, each one turned out great. Keep posting your progress so I can live vicariously through you.

I just placed my first custom guitar order with +Warmoth Guitar Products this afternoon. The body is Swamp Ash and the neck is sold Indian Rosewood. The body will be arriving unfinished but I am going to do a blue stain on it so it should look something like the photo. The pickups will be a Seymour Duncan SH-1N '59 Humbucker. For the middle I'm leaning towards a Seymour Duncan SSL-4 Quarter Pound RWRP Strat pickup. The bridge will be a Seymour Duncan Little 59 Tele. I'll run a 5-way switch and possible coil taps for the bridge and neck. Of course all this might change except for the body and neck, which I ordered today. Should be a fun project when all is said and done.

Good choice with Warmoth. Their quality is second to none. Sounds like you are going to have a ton of useful tones with your pup choices. Solid rosewood neck is an interesting choice. I have played a fender rosewood tele reissue a number of years back. Is that where you got the idea from?
