If you genuinely want to become a better photographer in this coming year...

...I really think we can help with our topic today on "The Grid." We're going to give you a step-by-step approach to guaranteeing you'll get better shots, you'll develop as a photographer (no pun intended), and you'll take a big step closer to a where you really want to be. 

It's starts in 30-MINUTES FROM NOW. Join Matt and me at http://www.kelbytv.com/thegrid

P.S. Can you please share this and help us spread the word about today's show. I really think this could be valuable to a lot of people.

Here we can have all of the walkers from all over the workld participate in real time, thanks to +Google+  The official walk date is Saturday October 13, 2012, but to accomodate different times happening around the world, the event here is spanning a few days. 

As of right now we have over a THOUSOND cities and close to 20,0000 walkers signed up for this free event.  This is a great place to make friends, explore #photography  , and see your city.  If you would like to sign up for one of the walks in your city, or lead a walk of your own, make sure you go to www.worldwidephotowalk.com  - We cant wait to see what you share!

Homework for #ColbyPhotoClub

I made this photograph with my desktop scanner. I built a simple topless and bottomless box, to set on top of the scanner. I painted the inside black and  covered it with black matte paper and then scanned. Adjusted levels, exposure, etc and removed dust spots in PSCS5. Has anyone else tried making photographs with a scanner?
