The Science of Wildlife Photography – New Class

I’m so excited and honored to present my latest KelbyOne Class to you, the Science Behind Wildlife Photography! This class is for all wildlife photographers no matter if you’re wanting to get started or have been doing it for decades. I packed this course with more “trivia” which you might call science than a dozen critter textbooks. My goal is two-fold, protect the welfare of the critter while helping you get the best photo you can every time you venture out. I hope you enjoy it and learns lots from it. And for all you KelbyOne members, be sure to check out the Members Webcast we did with my top ten locales for photographing...

Vet Chronicles – Bob Hambley Pt2

This is Part 2 of Bob Hambley’s amazing WWII story (here is Part 1)! Bob continues telling his tales of humor, tragedy escape from death. We all think of vets of having close brushes with death, but I’ve never met anyone like Bob. A midair collision during Advanced Training, ditching in the water, landing during a tropical storm, going off the end of a carrier on the launch, flipping over upon landing on a carrier, Wildcat missing the barrier and crashing on his plane on the carrier deck, those are just SOME of his stories. We were on the edge of our seats the whole time. “My last interview I did with a videographer was 5 1/2 hours.” When Bob, 98, told me that on the phone, I knew Sharon and I were in for a helluva an afternoon. Most of the Vet Chronicles we film don’t last more than half an hour. Bob was going strong after two hours (this is just Part 1)! A Hellcat and Wildcat...

Likes as An Interesting Scale

I made a conscious effort in 2019 to up my Instagram game. You’d probably noticed the much longer captions which are really more a BTS story behind the photo than just a caption. The main reason I did this was strictly personal, to see if the “briefer” post would reach more, faster, better. I’ve been anxious all year to see which would be my top nine and then look at those posts. I was actually taken back by the results. That’s because those posts with the greatest amount of conversation between viewers and myself were all aviation photos. And yet, not a single plane made the top nine. Rather, my favorite subject, critters dominated the count and the #1 photo was Bob, a Bobcat I photographed from the door of our home perched on our Tree Three. How will I use this info? The Top Nine site (which mixed up the image order) stated I had nearly 900k likes. No clue if that’s good or not, but to me...
