Easy as One, Two, Three with Scott Kelby

The gist of Scott Kelby’s common-sense style can be gleaned from a page randomly chosen from his Digital Photography Book Volume 3, titled “Controlling Softness with an Umbrella.” 

Scott Kelby: Teaching Photographers How to Make Pictures Perfect

Even Scott Kelby, author of more than 40 books about digital photography, thinks about the shot that got away. He was driving with his family along a back road in Hawaii on a dreary day.

Gifts for Photographers

Choosing the “best” or “right” gifts for the photographer(s) in your life can be daunting, to say the least. So to ease the burden of having to wade through a gazillion or two pages of our website in your quest to be on target, we took it upon ourselves to narrow the choices down.

Conquering Adobe Software via Kelby Training DVDs

If you’re a professional photographer, you probably spend as much or more time in front of a computer as behind a camera. And since such Adobe programs as Photoshop have proven the most popular, Kelby Training has created a series of DVDs to hone your Adobe software skills.

Taking Control of Exposure

Few things improved my photography more than learning when and how to set the exposure manually. That knowledge allows us to get good exposures in situations that automatic exposure can't handle. Setting the exposure manually also encourages us to make conscious, creative decisions about exposure.

I've heard some photographers say that they don't see any reason to use manual exposure. If that's your view, here's why I think you should reconsider.

Entry-Level Mirrorless Cameras

Ever since Olympus popped the cork on its first Digital Pen, the market has been bubbling over with an impressively large selection of high quality, mirror-free digital cameras.

Professional DSLR Roundup

Regardless of make and model, each of the following DSLRs is the best offering from the camera manufacturers represented in our Professional DSLR Roundup. Although many of these cameras seem similar in many respects to their mid- and entry-level counterparts—at least on paper—the narrative changes dramatically once you pick one up.
