Happy Christmas Eve #TravelTuesday to you all! I’m Dave Williams and I’m here with another sparkly nugget of wisdom for you, as always, fresh from England but inspired by the North Pole!
Today, rather festively, I want to discuss something we can do as photographers to spread love and cheer. This Christmas I’ve given the gift of photography in two ways. To loved ones I’ve given prints of mine, and to friends and family with children I’ve given a letter from Santa along with two photos from him, one of Rudolph and the lads, and one of his house high
Matt Kloskowski, Serge Ramelli and me tackled ‘The Reality of Switching to Capture One” as our topic this week on The Grid and we had a really great discussion, with so many people thanking us for helping clear up a lot of confusion and clarifying a lot of the bad info out there. I’ve embedded the episode below — you can just let it run in the background while your’e editing photos, but I know a lot of folks found this really helpful — it might clear up a lot of things for you,
For the last few years, I have made a goal of mine to create the most amazing memories with my kids, both in real life and photography-wise. Of course, it is a mission of mine to make our Christmas Card an epic one every year. Who wants to receive another boring Christmas card anyways?
Our Christmas Cards and my Bad Santa series were personal projects I started doing for fun, and they turned out to be the greatest marketing tool for my business during the Holiday Season.
It’s #TravelTuesday with Dave (that’s me) right here on ScottKelby.com, and today is all about why we should have a crack at compositing!
I’m going to refer to the work of a good friend in this post, as well as touch on the reasons why compositing can enhance our work. What I’m going to refer to can be found here on Layers Magazine. It’s by JR Maddox, and it won him a Guru Award at Photoshop World in 2013, so it’s serious business!
Compositing, first of all, is what we’re doing when we combine elements from two or
I have some very sad news to share this morning. Our KelbyOne community lost one of our long-time members, a Guru Award-winning photographer, a father, husband, and an important part of the photography industry, JR Maddox who passed away unexpectedly, at an early age far, far too soon.
JR had so many friends in the KelbyOne community, and in the photography industry in general and his passing had been felt by so many.
The print version arrives next week and the Amazon Kindle and B&N Nook ebooks versions are already here, but in the meantime, please watch the little video below where I tell you who it’s for, how it’s written, and why it’s going to be the book that helps a lot of folks quickly move ahead in their natural light portraiture.
You can order it right now on Amazon and or Barnes & Noble it ships next week (in time for Christmas and Hanukkah). Plus, it’s stocking-stuffer priced at $28.83, so what the heck, get two (one for a friend?
I’ve always felt that capturing a well exposed picture was easy, but capturing a portrait that reveals the essence, character, and personality was hard. And that’s because the most successful portraits take us well beyond the surface of how someone looks and show
#TravelTuesday is happening, people! Right here at ScottKelby.com it’s me, Dave Williams, and this week I want to dispel a myth about the pros!
I’ve just returned from a trip to Norway and Finnish Lapland, and the weather was disgusting! That’s what prompted this post. I didn’t get nearly as many photos as I usually do because there was a lot of thick, sideways snow and I didn’t fancy the risk-to-life to get some of the shots I wanted. One of my plans was to climb a mountain overlooking a small cove in the Lofoten Islands, but that
What a way to wrap up the year — a gallery showing of images from my coffee table book project The Great Indoors, which celebrates classic interiors from around the world, from libraries to opera houses, amazing cathedrals, theaters and more.
Do you ever get questions like that? How do you answer, “What does a food shoot cost?” When I have a potential client ask me this, I jokingly tell them “It costs about the same amount as a car.”
You can see their wheels turning as they calculate their ideas of what a car might cost. We then engage in some conversation about if they want a $30,000 luxury car or a $1,200 beater like my 17-year-old drives. Maybe it’s somewhere in between.
Hey hey! It’s #TravelTuesday with me, Dave Williams, and every week I’m here with something for you from the category lineup of photography, Photoshop, travel, or life. This week: – life. Mine, to be more specific.
First on the agenda, Photoshop World. It was awesome! I had my first PSW class, my “Ten Tips to Help You Create Captivating Travel Images,” and I loved it! I had a great time up on the stage in front of the attendees and it looks as though I had around 200 people in there with me. So, to those who came and to
…it was just incredible (truly one of the best ever), and I’ve got a bunch of pictures and stories to share but I couldn’t get them ready in time to post them today. I’ll have ’em together pretty soon and post a link to them here, but for now…I’ve pretty much got nuthin.
I have to say, I was thrilled when I received a note from Brad inviting me to do a Guest Blog Post for Scott’s blog as a run-up to Photoshop World Las Vegas just a few days from now. It’s been a while and I’m happy to be back in the “blogging” saddle again.
As many of you know, my wife LaDawn and I have ramped
Photoshop World Vegas starts tomorrow and I’m so excited! I just can’t hide it! It’s me, Dave Williams, here for #TravelTuesday with Dave at ScottKelby.com and this week I’m writing from high above the Atlantic Ocean on my way from London to Vegas (baby) where PSW is about to kick off!
Photoshop World is a gathering of photographers, designers, and all manner of creatives involved in digital imagery from around our beautiful planet, coming together under one roof to share, learn and connect.
