The Best Book Demo Ever (and it’s not even for my book)

My buddy, and co-host of “The Grid” Matt Kloskowski just released what I truly believe will be his best-selling book ever, because he tackled a subject that has everybody buzzing right now (Photoshop Compositing Techniques), but there’s very little solid information about there about exactly how to do it. Until now. I don’t want to steal Matt’s thunder, so watch the video above and you’ll see what I mean (the video is just so well done—-and funny—that once you see it, you’ll totally get it).

A tip of the hat to Erik Kuna and his team for coming up with such a cool book demo (I want one for my new book coming out in just a few weeks!), and to Matt for writing such a kick-butt book.

It’s now in-stock at and Barnes &, and wherever books that make you go “Ohhhhh, so that’s how you do it” are sold.

  1. I can’t wait to get my own copy…although, I live in Canada ans have a Sony Reader for ebooks and can’t find any store to purchase it from, it’s available at Sony Reader Store USA but not in the one in Canada…Could you help!!!

    1. Hey Roger. Youbetcha!!! I have a whole class on selections and compositing. I’m also teaching in the Elinchrom/Manfrotto booth and I’ll be going over the lighting setup that I use the most for this as well.


  2. I just ordered my copy today, based on the video, No JK. I really love the work that NAPP and Kelby Training does. Been a member since 2007 and don’t plan on letting that membership expire. Can’t wait to see the book. Thanks Matt and NAPP and Kelby Training.

  3. Matt, I’m really looking forward to getting my copy. Should be here any day now. I’ve been requesting more compositing/commercial advertising techniques consistently through Larry, Scott, RC etc… Don’t know if that had any impact on you writing this book or not, but I’m glad you did. Compositing is something I’ve really been wanting to get really good at for some time now. Can’t wait man

  4. OMGosh! I’m so excited about this book! Composting has been the weak link in my business. I seriously love Matt. His teaching style just clicks for me. I’ve had a 100% success rate after trying his Photoshop or Lightroom techniques. (Scott…you’re pretty awesome, too!)

    Hoping this books has some pointers on composting faces. Thanks for continuing to make us all better photographers!

  5. Too cool! Love the promo and am browsing my copy of PCS on the iPad right now.

    This fits right in with a global collaborative project two other high school teachers (in California and China) and I will be launching in the next few weeks (for K12 students) called Surrealistic Me (compositing skills will be front and center).

    Here’s a peek at a former student’s project: (though this year we may have to try the After Effects animation route so we can hang with the big boys).

    Thanks for the well-timed resource, Matt!

  6. Matt, Great promo and tell Kelby to his own promo video and stop swiping your stuff. We all know you are the real star. Sorry you won’t get to see this, cuz I’m sure Scott will delete it. Keep it coming.

  7. Great Demo Matt. Had the book on pre-order from Amazon for weeks now. Got it a couple of days ago and it has already helped with my classes at college. Fantastic job. Wish I could get to Vegas to see it all but cannot afford it on a student budget yet.

  8. I won the autographed copy of this book in the Google Plus contest and can’t wait to get it and get INTO it as it looks like tons of fun. Any idea when it might ship? I haven’t been contacted for my address yet.

  9. I bought it today! Great job, Matt! And to all you “Photoshop Guys” – Thank you so much for all you do! Through the years I’ve learned from each of you!

  10. Sweet! Love all of Matt’s book and videos. I have a dedicated shelf for Matt’s and Scott’s books. Keep up the great work! Another must-have.
