He’s an amazing teacher, and you’re going to have a career changing day with him—guaranteed”, said Scott Kelby, editor-in-chief of Photoshop User and Layers magazines, and president of KelbyTraining LIVE.

McNally will take you through a variety of lighting set ups with live demonstrations and you'll see first-hand how improving your lighting techniques takes your photography to a new level.
A full day of training is only $99 ($79 for NAPP members), and includes many bonus materials. For more information about other seminar tours and for cities and dates visit KelbyTraining LIVE at www.kelbytraininglive.com.
