Eggnog for the mind...

I once heard it said that those who can read but don't are no better off than those who cannot read at all.

The same can be said for those who have a camera and only know what came to them by flipping a few of the camera control switches or never read anything beyond the "Quick Start" guide. Sure on occasion you will get an outstanding image, but be honest, most of the time your images will fall into the "hey, these don't suck" category.

Or you have Photoshop but never read a book or took a course and when you see others peoples Photoshop work your wonder "how did they do that"? You are missing out on so much!

I know, I know, technical books have been used to put insomniacs to sleep, or worse, attempting to read them can be more painful than a stick in the eye. If you live outside of the "big city" training courses are few and far between. So what do you do?

Well, do I have some news for you! Kelby Training is now offering online training of the highest quality and at an obscenely low price. Here are just some of the instructors:

The Photoshop Studs (Scott Kelby, Dave Cross, Matt Kloskowski)
Bert Monroy
Joe McNally
Terry White
Moose Peterson
Vincent Versace
Dan Margulis

And the subjects that are covered go far beyond Photoshop, they cover on camera flash, lighting, Lightroom, marketing, workflow, landscape photography, black and white artistry, and so much more.

I was truly impressed with the quality of the video and you can too because they are offering everyone a a free test ride, check it out here.

But something this good will surely cost an arm and a leg, right? Nope! You can have access to every single course they offer for a mere $19.99 a month or $199 a year ($17.99 a month/$179 a year for NAPP members).

Instead of just taking a picture, master your camera and your software, make the best darn picture possible, now that is a great new years resolution!
