"Are you Shooting With a Lens In That "No Man's Land" Range?" -- that's the topic on my blog today and something to think about if you're frustrated with the images you're getting. It's not a law. It's not a rule. It's just a tip, but one that might make a big difference in the impact of your photography. http://kel.by/1x0aei5

Anyone else see the irony in quoting Bresson in a piece about avoiding the middle ground of focal lengths? 😄

This special, personal message from me is just for the photographers in California. If you're not a photographer in California, watching this will freak you out. Just sayin'

In case you missed this last night...my wife did a blog post about something her mom told her, and it's the best advice I've gotten all year (and the feedback on her post has been incredible from people all over the world who are acting on that advice). You should take a moment and read this. http://kel.by/1DUhpO3

Mornin' everybody. If you're out here in Vegas at WPPI, here's what's going on: Fashion Photog Lou Freeman is doing a session on creative Speedlighting at 11:30am at the KelbyOne theater (the entire theater is sponsored by our friends at Canon). Then at 2pm we're honored to feature George Lepp on stage. I'm over at Canon's booth at 10:45am with my "Photo recipes." Come on by  :)

One of our best "The Grid" shows ever, with Ed Greenberg (Attorney who represents photographers who've been ripped off) and Jack Resnicki (photographer's copyright advocate) as our in-studio guests. We talked about everything from model releases to copyright law to how to negotiate in business — just awesome info all the way around! http://youtu.be/MTHaw21XlOA

The new episode of "The Lightroom Show" is now online -- we cover lots of cool new stuff, we take a viewer-submitted image from start to finish, and we share some cool, little known keyboard shortcuts as well, but our first tip on Lightroom Mobile (a new weekly segment now). Hope you can check it out (it's short and sweet! Well, short anyway). http://kel.by/1zMzSYU
Our third episode is here (yay!) and we've added four new things to the show based directly on your comments. Well, probably not yours personally, but you know what I mean.

Congrats to "Trailblazer" Deanne Fitzmaurice for nailing the cover of SI this week. Her interview (with our own Mia McCormick) is now up on KelbyOne (part of our Trailblazers: Powerful Women of Photography series). kel.by/1B7rEyv

Wow, what a lovely lady. I wonder if we are related. I suppose we must be in some way with the same name! I too am a photographer and live in Devon, UK but do a very different type of photography. Thanks for sharing the video +Scott Kelby​

Want to read something really brilliant? Kevin Mullins guest post on my blog today is one of the best guest blogs ever! Really wonderful images, but his story is something every photographer should read (especially if you don't shoot weddings). Very well written with a powerful message. You'll love it! http://scottkelby.com

I read a lot of blog posts, but this one written by my wife, about something her mother said, will probably have the biggest effect on me, for the better, than any I've read so far this year. Her mom has a lot of wisdom, and so does her daughter for listening, applying it, and sharing it. Now, it's spread to her son-in-law. You should read this. http://www.shotwithmytrustyiphone.com
And that time should be anytime someone is talking to me in real life. I can't say that I have always done this but after a conversation with my mom this morning I am going to, positively, make sure I do it from now on. As we were talking and sharing this morning, she told me about her recent ...

I would also like to add that we have limited moments in this life. Those around us have limited moments. We will never know when a moment or opportunity is lost if it will be the last time we interact with the person in front of us. Life is uncertain and short. We need to make the most of it. People will not remember what you did as much as they will remember how you made them feel.

Greetings from Las Vegas everybody! Hey, today over at LightroomKillerTips.com I did a step-by-step post on how to set up a proof page, using the Print Module's brightness slider, to finally get your images to match what you're seeing on your monitor. If you get a sec, here's the link: http://kel.by/1FNWyLM 
Here's one way to set up a proof print to test the Brightness slider in the Print Module against how your own monitor looks. That way, you'll know the right percentage of brightness to add to make your print match the brightness of your screen.

Check out this custom guitar design that our own Corey Barker created for the stage in our new office expansion. The guitar came from Tyler Breidenbach at Bach Promotional Products (http://www.bachpromos.com) and they did an AWESOME job. They sent us a PSD template and Corey did the rest. Super diggin' it! :)
