I received this book as a prize for winning my local groups World Wide Photo Walk this year. At the time I had no studio lighting equipment and was not sure how much use I would get out of it, but new the writing would be classic Scott Kelby so there had to be something in there for me. Turns out nearly every chapter has something every photographer can use. There are loads of tips in the retouching sections for any type of shooter, and some of the lighting tips help make you more aware of light [...]
Quick read but great as a reference to return to frequently when I get more lighting equipment.
This book is not about a studio, not about a light and not about shot. It is ONLY about Retouch.And it would be OK if title suggests that. But it doesn't. Subtitle suggests that this book will learn you how to make photo starting from empty studio. So unfortunately this is also a lie. Lights configuration is shown and no decision process or any kind of detailed explanation why is no mentioned. Also there are no information why this frame was chosen for further retouch.I expected also lights and [...]
I think this book will come in more handy for me further down my journey to photographer. Perhaps it's a little beyond my current status. I don't have a lot of the suggested equipment and apparently have a lot more to learn about my camera's functions before I can put them to use properly. I also do not have photoshop as an editing means (I bought a separate book for the program I do have). Still, I think the set-ups will come in handy one day and at least now I know what kind of equipment I sho [...]
Enjoyed the seminar based on this and the book is a wonderful "how-to" guide. There were this ideas presented here that myself and a friend were surprised and amused to find the teachers in our photography school would never consider Or would down right say would never be acceptable "in the real world". Scott Kelby may first and foremost be a marketer, but in the world of photography he has his finger firmly on the pulse of popular techniques and trends.
I found this extremely useful for step-by-step post-processing guidance in Photoshop. The "retouch it" was more helpful to me than the "light it" and "shoot it" aspects, but it will be different for every reader/user. The eBook is fantastically well organised - it's clear a lot of thought went into producing it. It's one I'll refer back to, I'm sure.
Really nice. He can combine many gears, and really offer great tips how really to do it (based on the experience). Like the part to get a studio light with wheels. The language is easy to comprehend, and its make the reader wonder where is d next book about.
Easy to follow. Mainly about Photoshopping after a shoot. The lighting set ups aren't very detailed in a technical sense but good food for thought if you have the equipment. I use PS everyday and learnt several new techniques. A good introduction and easy to see how to delve further elsewhere.
Using as a reference book more than something to read straight through. I just started working with lighting, though I've done some Photoshop work over the years. Scott Kelby has great instruction videos online so the book is a bonus.
Fantastic step by step guideThis book is a fantastic step by step guide to get you started. With this as your jumping off point your creativity will be able to expand upon the use of these techniques.

Scott Kelby books are always so easy to follow along with and "Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It" is no exception! There are some great techniques laid out "step by step" for even the most amateur photographer.
It was well written and had a lot of useful information. I was hoping for more on how to decide settings and how the camera and light work together.
أحببت تفاصيل الشرح المرفقة بالصور والمعدات ومراعاة سكولبي للبدائل الغير متوفرة
A great step-by-book for anyone interested in perfecting their studio lighting skills.
Kelby books are always informative. Would recommend to any new or semi experienced DSLR users who want to rev up their ability while processing is an additional bonus.
Excellent for understanding lighting placement and how to touch up after and it doesn't require a major investment in equipment.
