    Enjoyed the episode. OnOne software videos with Brian are very informative. Thanks

  2. Gary says:

    Watched the first two shows…like the tips but the show seems a bit too fast paced you seem to be rushing each of the tips out. You don’t seem as relaxed as you are on most of your other Kelby TV shows… a couple of extra mins taken over the length of the whole show would not make it look as frantic… other than that It’s great.

  35. Iva says:

    Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

  36. Barrie Warriner says:

    Another great show!
    I loved the tip on bracketing.
    I shoot with a D7000 which only allows me to bracket 3 shots. Is it possible to do the canon technique on a D7000? If so can you explain how to set it up. Cheers.

  37. Jim Valencia says:

    Hey Matt, Scott, RC, et al.

    Nice job with the transition to the new program. The new format and theme are cool, and you continue to deliver concise, informative content. Well done. One observation:

    I think it’s time to give HDR a rest. Going back to the D-Town TV days, I think there are more episodes in which a tip either explicitly deals with HDR, or an application for a more general tip to HDR is mentioned, that episodes in which HDR is not referenced. Episode 2 of the new show is no exception. I will concede that there are some powerful HDR images out there, but the technique has become overused to the point of cliche, and a lot of people attempt to use HDR (not very well, in many cases) to compensate for mediocre photographs that otherwise lack creative distinction.

    How about mixing up shooting, lighting and post-production techniques a little more? I would be thrilled to see the show with regular segments on (1) innovative or not-well-known ways to use equipment – helpful menu settings, Larry’s Cheap Shots kind of stuff, etc.; (2) a shooting technique segment – lighting, panoramas, panning, macro, etc.; (3) short interviews on a range of topics with some of the talented people who teach Kelby Training courses and other talented photographers who you highlight at the end of the show.

    That said, I’m still watching. You have a great show!

  38. Great show as always. Everyone gone? Good thing you’re holding down the fort Matt.

  46. Ben Setzer says:

    Great show.

  47. Jozef Leferink says:

    Matt, is the life-view idea not good advertisment to move away from DSLR to a system camera?

    I am in doubt for my next camera if it should be DSLR again or not. Maybe it could be a topic for discussion on Kelby-TV.

  48. Claudio Ruiz says:

    Excellent !!!!
    I’ve learned a lot from you guys.
    Keep the good work…

  49. Nice show guys!

    Nice tip from Brian, unfortunately it only partially works on the 60D, since it has only one custom mode (C). Even though it was something I started to do not long ago, put my bracketing configuration (set as RC suggested) as custom mode.

  50. Andre says:

    I like the new show . I like the new speed … thanks for it.
    This time all hints are so much helpful to me.
    I’m so pleased

  54. W. Kirk Crawford says:

    The camera tip for Canon auto bracketing, Custom Functions C3, C2, C1, don’t work or doesn’t save the settings.

    Am I missing something?

  55. W. Kirk Crawford says:

    This isn’t working, is it?

  56. W. Kirk Crawford says:

    I’m trying to leave a comment about the camera tip, auto bracketing for Canon cameras.

    The camera tip for Canon auto bracketing, Custom Functions C3, C2, C1, don’t work or doesn’t save the settings.

    Am I missing something?

    But this keeps saying that I said this before.

    Where? It’s not showing up anywhere I look.

    Hi Folks , Seen your new show today for the first time which I enjoyed very much even if some tips were redundant but I guess that is necessary to reach all audience.
    Just a little critique though. In the old d town tv you placed the links to mentioned products,websites etc in the episode summary, I’d like to have that
    Back again here too.
    Would appreciate it.
    So continue the great work and have a great time!

    Why do you always have the 0 in the bracketing? Could you have one set to -4, -3, -2 the second at -1 0 1, and the third at 2,3,4?
