Henri Cartier-Bresson

Father of modern photojournalism and street photography. 
             "To take a photograph is to hold one’s breath when all faculties    

               converge in a face of fleeing reality. It is at that moment that

               mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

               To take a photograph means to recognize – simultaneously and

               within a fraction of a second– both the fact itself and the rigorous

               organisation of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. 

               It is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis." –  

               Henri Cartier-Bresson

Scott Kelby

KelbyOne Training and Membership site.
If you don’t know Scott and the Photoshop guys, welcome back to civilization. We’ll give you a few minutes to catch your breath. Scott and his team have created online classes, touring workshops and conferences to learn about all aspects of photography - from simple retouching to masterclasses. Truly smart, patient and inspiring teachers. The best thing–they are still learning themselves – asking “what if” constantly to push the tools into new territories. Scott was the original founder of NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) and Photoshop User magazine. To make life more organized and to tie up loose ends from all the different business entities, it was all re-organized under the KelbyOne banner. Both Layers and Photoshop User magazines, training and incredible equipment and software discounts are wrapped up in the reasonable membership fee. If you’re not a member, keep an eye on Black Friday and Cyber Monday for special opportunities. Scott has also written several books on photography - will be adding to the Resources -Media page.
