I'll start by saying I'm a big fan of Kelby's books - they're very easy to read (mostly because they're filled with photos and minimal writing opposed to the opposite!) and you usually get some new information in a non-technical way that's easy to understand.
Unfortunately, I'm kind of disappointed by this one -- while called "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it", the majority of the book revolves around how to fix the images in photoshop (not too big of a surprise, since Kelby is a 'photoshop guy' before a 'photographer'.

I bought the Kindle version (for use on the iPad) and it looks great - images are clear, large and easy to see. I will say that I'd only use it on a Kindle Fire or iPad (the black-and-white kindles will lose a lot from the book, since it's so image-heavy). If you have one of the above though, this is a great way to save a little money and have a portable version "on the go" wherever you're at.

So the premise for the book is great - they show... Read more
When I noticed that i could buy the full kindle version now, before it's hit stores i jumped right on this, i've been reading Kelby's Blog + watching "The Grid" video podcast that he does and been looking forward to this book, i couldn't make it to the tour he just did so the book is a nice substitute.

I've always enjoyed his writing style, and he answers alot of questions I've had as a semi-pro newbie is a way that i can understand; and i must say that on my PC Monitor it's formatted perfectly, i can scroll from shot to shoot and see how it evolves step by step; i think i may prefer this over having a hardcopy.

I'd strongly recommend this to someone like me trying to figure out the best way to use your lights to create stunning images; also the procedure to really make them "pop" in your photoshop post production.

I like the detail about each shoot so you can really see what is going on; and the contact sheets were a great idea.

As an experienced studio portrait photographer I like to think I know my way round most lighting setups or at least have a pretty educated guess - This book however takes it one step further. People may show you a lighting setup or a finished "polished" shot, but not many take you through the complete step by step process.
For me seeing the contact sheet and Scott's out of camera RAW, lets me relate to how I see my images out of the camera and the potential of the finished shot. Hang in there, it sounds obvious! but Scott's style of writing is as if he is standing next to you guiding you through the stages and why. This is a key thing that a lot of narrators don't get. I looked at a couple of the RAW's and thought hmm, lets see where we go with this.

I love seeing the lighting setup shots from every aspect - front, side, back (and top) showing proximity, angle etc - it takes away the guess work you get from some follow along books I have previously read. The camera... Read more
