Such an awesome post today over at my wife Kalebra's blog — it's about a conversation she had with our daughter about something she and her friends do that is very clever and so inspiring. If you've got a sec, here's the link - it will put a smile on your Saturday. smile emoticon http://kel.by/1FamwsG

Check out the new weekly show! :) 
We just announced a weekly new show just for Lightroom users. It's called (wait for it…wait for it…) "The Lightroom Show!" (Yay!). It's from RC & me, and we're launching it later this month (we're in the production phase with sets and such now). Lots of great ideas for topics and things to cover today over at http://lightroomkillertips.com - would love to get your input. :)

If you want to see an amazing photographer and her work then you must check out my good friend +Kalebra Kelby's  new blog. Not to mention her writing of these captured moments will enlighten your day and something I promise you will look forward to seeing on a regular basis. :) 
She is proof of what many of the masters and legends will tell you... A camera is merely a tool and a small part of the process to producing and creating beautiful images. 
Her tool of choice is an iPhone camera and once you see her photography you will see why I am and have always been a huge fan...
Kalebra's work inspired me to start using my own cell phone camera and can now honestly say I use it more than my DSLR for my personnel captures. Thanks Kalebra! 
Watch out Scott Kelby as you could be right... she just might put you out of a job! Better yet you both can rock the photographic world with opposite ends of the gear world. From the big gun DSLR's of yours to the simplistic use of the camera that's always with you a simple cell phone camera! 
While you are at it photog peeps if not already a follower check out http://kelbyone.com/ as its hands down the best place on the planet to learn anything photography. Maybe soon we shall see Kalebra on there with some cell phone classes... Hint, hint! +Scott Kelby ;)

 
Well, I've gone and done it now—I've started a blog—dang it! I named it...wait for it... “Shot with my trusty iPhone.”  Sorry but I just can't be bothered to think of something else. Hahaha! ;)

For those of you that don't know, I'm a bit of a late bloomer when it comes to social media—I've only been engaged with it for about four years. When my husband first tried to set up a Facebook account for me I, literally, freaked out when he said other people (friends of friends, etc.) could read my posts and I had him take it down five minutes after he put it up. After a few months I tried again but I never could quite get into it—I just never connected. Then he mentioned G+! Oooo, me likey. Hahaha! The engagement here is different and because you're here you know exactly what I mean.

Since joining G+ I have branched out to other sites (Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram) but none of the interaction (at least so far) has been like here on G+ and well, dang it, apparently, I have become quite attached to you guys. ;)

Having said all that and in an attempt to keep in touch with you (come what may on any social site) I have started a blog. Ack! LOL! Actually, I'm quite excited about it and the prospect of learning something new. I had A LOT of help from my friend +RC Concepcion and I'm so very grateful for his willingness to teach (imagine that) and also for his patience. Hahaha! —Thank you RC, I couldn't have done it without you! :-)

Now through my own (always present) curiosity, RC's (always present) willingness to help and the mad encouragement I've received from my husband +Scott Kelby and friends like +Karen Hutton , +Barb Cochran, +Kathy Porupski, +Jean Cappello, +lynn hughes and others, I think I'm ready to launch. I have no idea how it fits into everything else right now but I'm game.

A very special and sincere thank you to everyone here on G+ because without you, being so darned charming and fun and all, this next step into a new adventure would have never happened in the first place. 😘

Here's the link. http://www.shotwithmytrustyiphone.com/ now, let's have some (more) fun! ;)
