It would be silly to have done this and not share it myself so…

June 19, 2017

Today I’m sharing the announcement of my very first class on iPhone photography. Had to step out of my comfort zone to do it but I’m glad I did and (now that it’s over and I can breathe again) I’m excited! Hahaha! I owe a huge thank you to Larry Becker for all of his help on set and for making it fun in the process. To our producer Jen Coffin for sitting with me (just a few times) over the outline and for not tearing her phone out of the wall over having to reschedule this thing. 😂  To Meredith Duffin for her patient direction, editing, control room genius, hand holding and encouragement (her smile is a comfort). To Juan Alfonso and Leighton Silvestro for their awesome camera work.  To Steve Nicolai for his subtle but just right and thoughtful input that made the whole thing that much better. And last, but certainly not least, to Scott Kelby, for your encouragement, and for your help — thank goodness you’ve done this before! Hahahaha! 😉

And for all those in the building that encouraged me with a comment or a question like Sally, Dianne and Margie…thank you. I heard you, I felt you, and you all helped me get this done. 🙂

Have a great week everybody!

    Well it’s about time, Kalebra, and congratulations on your first KelbyOne class! Can’t wait to watch it myself as soon as I get a chance.

    Sure am glad you finally did this. Now I have to find some extra time. Maybe 3 am. 😂🤠

      I hope it doesn’t have to be 3:00 a.m. Lynnie—unless you want it to be. 😉

        Seems like that’s the only time I have free time Kalebra.

    Looking forward to digging into this. I have long thought you would be the one and only person uniquely qualified to teach this course and now, here it is! From the class contents listing it seems that this is far from a how-to course, but, instead, goes far deeper into art and emotion, just the sort of things that make your imagery grab at the heart.

      Thank you for the kind comments, Carolyn. You’ll have to let me know what you think once you’ve had a chance to look at it. 😘

    Great class Kalebra! (yes, and about time, of course!). I thought I knew all my settings to use but I picked up some new tips. Thanks!
