Come spend the day with Scott Kelby, the photographer who wrote the bestselling book on digital photography, as he brings the concepts, images and ideas from his best-selling book series to life in this one-day live training seminar.
Imagine how much you can learn, and how much farther along you’ll be after spending a full-day immersed in just the most important, the most impactful, and the most fun photography techniques. The entire workshop is designed to have you leaving from that day with a new set of skills, a clear set of goals, and just what you need to start taking the type of photos you’ve always dreamed you could.
10:00 to 11:00 A.M.
We start the day by going through the most important, most helpful settings on your camera so you get tack-sharp, in-focus, crisp quality images every single time. We’ll go through the pro’s techniques for shooting in low light and tricky lighting situations, plus important things you need to know about your lenses (including which ones to use when), and how to sidestep some mistakes that sink a lot of photographers. If you’ve ever struggled to get it “right” in the camera—that ends here.
11:15 to 12:15 P.M.
If you’ve got a camera, and you go on vacation—boom—you’re shooting travel photography. We all do it, yet there’s nothing more frustrating than coming back with shots that don’t capture the color and excitement of your trip. But in this class you’re going to learn exactly what to shoot, when to shoot it, what you can skip and what you can’t miss. We’ll cover everything from how to shoot HDR that looks great to shooting panos that work every time, to getting great shots of people in foreign lands. Also, if you’ve been wanting to really nail those landscape shots, you’ll learn what gear you need, which settings to use and the real secrets to capturing everything from sweeping mountain ranges to luscious waterfalls and everything in-between.
1:15 to 2:30 P.M.
Getting great portraits isn’t just luck. In this session you’ll learn the techniques you need to know to make people look their very best, from shooting angles to focus tips, from how to frame your shots to getting great light indoors and out. Plus, you’ll learn exactly how, from scratch, to set up and use a hot-shoe flash so you have total control of the light in any situation. You will finally “get” hot-shoe flash and you’ll be absolutely amazed at how simple it can be. This class is packed with info you can really use.
2:45 to 3:45 P.M.
What is the one thing we all really want to do? We just want to take better pictures, right? We want to move to the next level where we really enjoy the process, sidestep the frustration and start taking the kind of photos we know are inside us—we just need to know the techniques that let us focus on the images, and stop getting bogged down in all the technical stuff, and that’s exactly what you’re going to learn in this session. This class is filled with those “ah-ha!” moments that make the light-bulb come on for you so you can start taking better photos. Not in a few months, not in a year—starting tonight!
4:00 to 5:00 P.M.
This class is based on the most popular chapter in all four parts of Scott’s “Digital Photography Book” series—the Photo Recipes chapter. In this session Scott will break down some of his most popular images and show you exactly how to pull off the exact same look and feel, step-by-step. He’ll cover everything from lenses to camera settings, composition to subject manner, portraits to landscapes. This is an amazing, inspiriting and info-packed way to wrap up the day. And, you’ll have a complete, fully-detailed class workbook that follows right along with Scott’s live training so you don’t have to spend the day scribbling notes—instead you can relax, focus and take it all in.

We'll make sure that your training, the classroom, and seminar materials are the very best they can possibly be. This we can control, and we work hard to make sure we exceed your expectations. However, there are several things that are simply out of our control. A little preparation can really help ensure that your travel to and from the convention center and day with us is enjoyable.
Make sure you have directions and driving instructions in hand, and know our location within the convention center. Many centers are very large and difficult to navigate. Knowing exactly where you're going can save a large amount of time and frustration.
