Come join us out here in heaven on earth. I cannot wait for this to get here!
 
Can you feel the sea breeze?  This is one reason why Joe does a lighting workshop in St. Lucia, it's just that gorgeous.  If you want to experience this in person with Joe and +RC Concepcion , there are a few spots left.

Where the "Top Socially Influential Photographers" list starts getting weird

So my buddy +Corey S Barker  just came into my office and said 'dude.. check out this post I just made on my FB page.  "  

Yesterday Twitter was aflutter when +Eyefi  posted a list of their top 30 Socially Influential Photographers.  Much chatter went about who was added, who wasnt.. and who fared higher than the other.  There was also a top 100 list - which Corey made it on.  Congrats!

All well and good.. until you notice that Corey doesnt own a camera.  The most amazing @Photoshop artist? No doubt (and you should follow him immediately).  But if he thought it funny.. I thought it would make you chuckle.  :)

It's the ultimate achievement to be crowned 'influential photographer' without even owning a camera. Now that is special. These 'top 10' (or top 100) lists are always a bit funny, and about as serious as many statistics, especially considering that 76.4% are made up on the spot ;)

Early heads up: today at 4pm ET come join Matt and Me on "The Grid" (our live weekly talk show for photographers). We've got a bunch of different mini-topics today, and as always we're taking your comments and questions live on the air. Hope you'll join us (and if could help us spread the word, that would be awesome!). Many thanks and hope to see you then! http://kel.by/1r8ji3f

Packing the XT1 and Lenses in a Thinktank Bag
Sitting around the house getting ready for the day, and I thought it be neat to share a video of just how much #Fuji   #XT1   Camera stuff you can pack in a +Think Tank Photo  Retrospective 5 bag. We did one video before Sabine decided she wanted to be in the show.

RC, you are definitely going to have boy trouble at your house in a few years!  Trouble as in all of the boys are going to be calling.  Nice video, you have made me want a Fuji XT1.

Combatting the Clean
Took +* to a Best Buy and told her she needed to own cleaning the house. Not quite the response I had in mind.

This is a picture before she beat me with the +Dyson .

Submit Your Images NOW for Today's BLIND PHOTO CRITIQUES on "The Grid" (our weekly talk show for photographers)

If you'd like to have your work considered for today's blind photo critiques (we show your images but don't mention your name on the air), just leave us a link to three or four your images here: http://kelbyone.com/thegrid/critique/

No specific genre today -- just send in your best work and we'll pick 15 or so photographer's work to go over on the show (not based on who posted first --- we choose based on showing variety and images we think can help our viewers), and the live show is broadcast TODAY at 4:00 pm ET. (Here's a world time-zone calculator: http://bit.ly/JUuYUj -- use New York City as our time zone). See you then (and good luck).
WANT YOUR IMAGES TO BE PICKED? READ THIS BEFORE SUBMITTING: - Make your 4-5 images easy for us to download. Turn off right-click protection. Doing screen captures is time consuming. - Only submit 4-5 images, not a gallery of 10, 20, 50, or your entire website. - Watermark your images at your own risk. - …
