Scott Kelby's Third Annual Worldwide Photo Walk and the New LumoPro LP160!

Couple of really cool things happened today!

Scott Kelby announced his third annual Worldwide Photo Walk!  This is a very cool event with thousands of participants around the world taking part.  Basically, groups of photographers from all over get together, walk around and take photos of anything that interests them.  Its a great chance to hang out with other photographers and you can even win prizes to boot!

You can find out more by checking out the Worldwide Photo Walk homepage and for you locals, check out the Louisville Worldwide Photo Walk homepage.  If you think you might be interested in doing this, then sign up quickly as there are only 50 participants allowed for each walk.

Also, the new LumoPro LP160 was just released today!  For those of you who don't know, the LumoPro LP160 is an awesome manual flash that has all kinds of cool features.  It has quadruple syncing methods, a built in slave, a digital slave option (which will allow it to ignore TTL pre-flashes so it can be used with TTL flashes) and its as powerful as the Nikon SB-900 and Canon 580EXII but for a fraction of the price!  I plan on picking myself up one of these (or two) as soon as I get the chance.  I have a feeling though these will sell quickly so if you're interested, you better jump on them.

You can check out David Hobby's review of them here on the Strobist blog and also you can pick these up at Midwest Photo Exchange.

That's all for now, and towards the end of the week, I should have some exciting news about my Off Camera Flash Photography Workshop coming up very soon, so check back!
