Win a Free Ticket to the Lightroom 4 Live Seminar!

This month, I’m kicking off my Lightroom 4 Live seminar tour from Kelby Training. First I head to Minneapolis, then on to Los Angeles, Chicago, and Lansing, Michigan. If you’ve been wanting to finally figure out how to work Lightroom into your photography this is a fantastic chance to come out and learn it from the ground up. I actually just got done (today as a matter of fact) updating the workbook for the event (yes, you get a workbook with everything so you don’t have to scribble notes the whole day). It gave me the chance to go through and tweak/add all those little things that I found gave people trouble the last time I taught the seminar. Plus I added all of the new stuff for Lightroom 4 (like the new Books module and all the new Develop module sliders).

Okay, now that I’ve got all the promotional tour pimping out of the way, I wanted to give you a chance to win a free ticket to the seminar. So here’s the deal. Leave a comment with the city you’d like to attend the seminar in (here’s the dates of all the seminar stops) and I’ll pick 1 winner for each city later today.

• Minneapolis: Monday April 23rd
• Los Angeles: Thursday April 26th
• Chicago: Monday April 30th
• Lansing, MI: Monday May 21st

Here’s the link to find out more about the entire day and sign up. Good luck and I hope to see you there! Oh and as always… if you are attending make sure you come up and say hi. I always love to hear from friends of the blog 🙂

    thе Hani people have developed ɑ complesx ѕystem of channels to
    bring water from tһе forested mountaintops tο thе terraces.

    Tһey hаνe alsߋ ϲreated an integrated farming ѕystem that invvolves buffalos, cattle,
    ducks, fish ɑnd eel and supports the production of red rice, the area’s primary crop.

    Тhe inhabitants worship tҺe sun, moon, mountains, rivers, forests
    аnd othner nagural phenomena including fіrᥱ.
    They live in 82 villages situated Ьetween tҺе mountaintop forests аnd the terraces.
    Тhe villages feature traditional thatched “mushroom” houses.

  42. I have just gotten LR 4 after many years with PS- I really could use a soup to nuts on how to use it! I get something and it creates more questions…and I find you so easy to follow in all your tutorials. Luck would have it that I am spending the weekend in St. Louis (I live outside of Philly) so CHICAGO would be a great stop for a day…. maybe it’s a sign.

  44. Yippee!! Lansing – YES! Thank you for coming to Lansing, it’s so much better a venue than Livonia.

    Maybe the Lansing Convention Center can provide a listing of area eateries for lunch this time – for the out of town guests. I’m local, but I know some were not able to get their food quickly at the ‘in-house’ grill during Scot Kelby’s last visit.

    And yes, I’d love a free ticket.
