Man, publishing a digital magazine should just not be this hard. First, our developer came out with a bug fix update, but because of a small technicality in the submission process, it got turned down (uggh), but now, at last, finally it’s out, along with the latest issue (the cover is shown above).

The bug fix addresses problems some users had with downloading back issues they had already purchased, and a bunch of other annoying stuff.

We still have a few more bugs we’re working on squashing, and our developer thinks they have now tracked down the subscription problem a small number of users are still suffering with, and we’ll be submitting an update to the App Store that should put that nasty problem to bed. Whew!!! It’s almost makes me miss print (nobody ever rejects your printed copies. Well, maybe the post office). ;-)

Anyway, it’s available now in the App store for $2.99.(That’s less than a Chicken McNuggets Happy Meal) :)

Yesterday, when I woke up and checked my email, I saw where the New York Times had done a piece on my new iPad App called “Scott Kelby’s Photo Recipes” (it’s totally free), and I was on Cloud 9 (had no idea they were doing that until I saw it in my inbox). [Here’s the link]

Then I get an email from Shawn Welch, our IOS developer and fellow Call of Duty [SNOW] Clan player that Gizmodo.com featured it yesterday as their “Gizmodo App of the day.” Seriously, I’m blacking out! ;-)  [here’s the link].

You can find it on the App store for iPad. Did I mention it’s free? :)

Thanks to the Times and to Gizmodo for featuring the App (and thanks to Shawn Welch for totally kicking butt in creating it). We are seriously psyched! :-)

We just released our latest issue of Light It Magazine (our how-to magazine for hot shoe flash and studio lighting) and it’s our biggest issue yet.
It’s available in the Apple Newsstand on the iPad (coming soon for Android), and it’s only $2.99 (all back issues are there, too for $2.99 or you can subscribe for $19.95 for a full year — 8 issues).
Lots of great stuff in this issue, including more lighting for wedding photographers, lighting pets with hot shoe flash, lighting children, location lighting, and tons more. I hope you give it read (here’s the link to it on the App store). :)

Brad Moore here again with another bit of news… Our latest iPad app, Scott Kelby’s Lighting Recipes, just launched on the iTunes store today, and it’s FREE!

The cool thing is, it’s not just a couple of lighting setups… There are 13 lessons in this app, showing you the finished image and production shots so you can see how each one is set up.

Scott walks you through each setup, plus there are even bonus setups within some of the lessons! Not bad for free, eh? :)

If you’re looking for some of our other educational apps, you can see a full list of Kelby Training apps (for iPhone and iPad) right here, including Learn To Use Brushes in Photoshop, another app that was just release this past week.

And if you like the Lighting Recipes app, make sure you check out Light It Magazine, our magazine for all things lighting!

Leave a comment for your chance to win a free download of the Brushes app!

Issue 5 of Light It Magazine is now available! Brad Moore here to tell you a little about it :)

This issue features tips from Jim Schmelzer on the importance of subtractive lighting:

Photo Recipes from Scott Kelby:

My personal favorite, the Gear Watch section ;) :

Plus Tom Bol on sports portraiture, Erik Valind on high-speed sync with small flash, Kevin Ames on reflectance, Jason Groupp on what to do with stage lighting during wedding receptions, an interview with Frank Doorhof, sixty seconds with stock photographer Nicole S. Young, and work from featured photographers Sean Arbabi and Jennifer Wu.

If you don’t already have the free Light It Magazine app, download it from the iTunes store and grab the first issue for free. Each issue after that is only $2.99, a hard deal to beat for valuable info from the people listed above!

And, if you’re an Android user who’s been asking for Light It on your platform, it’s time to rejoice! We’ve started development on this and will be keeping you posted as things progress.

(Also, Scott did a little write-up on the issue over on Google+ if you’d like get his take)
