Your Visual Library: Why You Need it, How To Get It, and How To Make It Work for You

Today at 4pm Eastern: http://kelbytv.com/thegrid

Photography is a very exciting art form, once you get past the mechanics. When you do, you are off exploring all sorts of creativity. That said, there are times where we get stuck running in circles and not breaking past that.  

+RC Concepcion +Pete Collins and I will be talking about how everyone can benefit from looking at building their visual library. One part art history, one part inspiration - we'll show you how to take the inspiration around you and use it to get your shots to that next level. Tune in Today at 4PM Eastern at http://kelbytv.com/thegrid

+Brad Moore Today I met you at the shoot Like a Pro Tour seminar in Phoenix. It was a pleasure. Looking at your Google + Page, it seems as if you have been too busy for this.  I always enjoy your contributions when you are on The Grid.

Any issues with the live feed today?  Just wondering, this is the first time I have not been able to view the grid.

Fascinating article on the economics of ticket scalping...

It never occurred to me that "fan-considerate" artists who charge reasonable ticket prices to their concerts may be 1) deliberately optimizing their ultimate revenue (by allowing fans to use redirect cash to high margin merchandise), and 2) inadvertently creating a somewhat sketchy aftermarket (the story leads with a tale of a fan who lost $375 on counterfeit tickets.)  Ouch.

That was a very interesting article. Last year a public radio show did a story on the 'dynamic pricing' of baseball tickets which I found equally interesting. If you have time you should take a listen here: http://www.marketplace.org/topics/business/moneyball-baseball-ticket-pricing

thanks for the tip Brad. How soon can we find out if the Grid is a critique? I never get to know until a few hours before the show and I'm busy getting ready for work. It comes on at 10 am here, just after I open my store. When DST ends it will start at 11am since we don't use DST here. thanks Jock

Promo Shoot with SPZRKT

Last week a friend of mine who is starting a record label told me he'd just signed his first two artists and wondered if I would have time soon to do some publicity photos for him. One of them is in Tampa (where we live), and the other lives in San Antonio.

As luck would have it, I happened to be going to San Antonio for a seminar with +Scott Kelby just a few days later (which is where we are now)! Let's just say my friend was very happy to hear this ;-)

After dinner last night, SPZRKT (pronounced Spazzy Rocket) met me at our hotel for the shoot. Took a little while to get warmed up, but once I did, I got some shots I was pretty happy with (and even more importantly, HE was happy with).

The profile shot was done with one speedlight and an Impact 24" Quickbox positioned slightly behind him, and the other was available light on a bench between the elevators outside my room.

If you want to check out his music, here's a link where you can get his album The Loner - http://spzrkt.bandcamp.com/

Hey Brad!

I had been doing some research on Nikons versus Canons used in concert photography and I had not come across many concert photographers who use Nikons so far. (hence I had been doubting my Nikon choice!!) So, great to find you today through 500px 's post!!

Do you find a trend in within concert photographers for a preference of one versus the other? Even though, all the answers I get are that there isn't one better than the other... !
