In-Depth Review of my book, “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it”

Ron Martinsen just posted an in-depth review of my latest book, “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it”, on his blog, but besides the fact that he did a review in the first place (which I appreciate very much), I think it’s cool that he took some of the concepts from the book, tried them own, and showed his own results.

Here’s a link to the review (wouldn’t this be a great use for some of that Gift Card money you got for Christmas? I’m just saying’). ;-)



  1. Really good review of your book, Scott. It’s really a great read and Ron touched on all the main points of the book. A must-buy for anyone doing portrait work!!


    1. Thanks John!

      I usually do a lot more for Scott’s books, but this one was one that followed a pattern that made it a little easier to review than the others. You might enjoy my other book reviews as well (see the right hand column and scroll down).

      Happy New Years and Happy Shooting!

  2. I’ve had this book on my reading list since it was first announced and was fortunate enough to win it on our local world wide photo walk before I got around to buying it (Cool, a penny saved is a penny I can spend on the remainder of the reading list). In true Kelby style it is clear, concise and downright entertaining. Love McNally style Numbnuts napkin sketches but the overhead shots of the actual lighting set-up in this book are solid gold. Home run Scott!

  3. Scott, i don’t know if you will read this or not but I got the book soon after it came out. Right now all I have are a nikon sb600 and sb900. What settings do I use on these? Thanks and I love the book!
