The new issue of “Light It Magazine” (issue #8) is out, and available in Apple’s Newsstand App on the iPad (it’s only $2.99. Crazy cheap!), and (BIG NEWS) we are currently beta-testing the Android version and so far the testing is going great (the mag looks and works great — just a couple more things to address before we release it, so it won’t be long now).

This issue I’ve got a behind-the-scenes “Photo Recipes” food shoot using two Westcott TD-6 Spiderlites along with some things you can pick up at your local hardware store (seen above).

This is one of my favorite issues so far. Great stuff from Joel Grimes (you’re seeing the opening page above, which includes an embedded video), plus Frank Doorhof always brings great stuff,  and there’s lots of cool stuff cover to cover.

It’s available now, so I hope you’ll check out the new issue, (which costs less than the price of about any McDonald’s Extra Value meal, which that unto itself either says a lot what an incredible value this magazine is, or about how expensive Extra Value meals have become). ;-)

P.S. We now have annual subscriptions available for just $19.99. Insane-o cheap. Cheaper than dinner at Chili’s (well, if you at least order chicken Fajita’s, some chips and salsa, and maybe a Corona) and you get a whole year of issues. Seriously, that’s hundreds of pages of lighting techniques, so subscribe at the App store right this very minute before your fajitas get cold.

  1. CAKB, I’m getting the subscription, love anything I can use my iPad for!

    RC, that tip u gave on the latest DTownTV about using the multiple exp setting on the camera to substitute for ND filter works great, never thought to try that, thanks!

  2.  If you need one more beta-tester: i’d offer a Samsung Galaxy Note (5.3″ / 1280×800 screen)

  3. I’m open to BETA testing for you. I’m also happy to pay for it too since I will value the content.
    Thanks for all you do!

  4. Android soon … YES! 

  5. Scott, methinks there will be a lot of happy Droid-using, flash-toting, photographers today.  I’m up for a subscription, too, if there is a way to offer it through the Android Play Store.  And you know what, I’d even bring my Toshiba tablet to Chili’s and order that fajita dish and Corona, while I read Light It to celebrate its release (much to my wife’s annoyance, I’m sure).

    Not that I’m cheap, but will the first issue for Droid users be free like the iPad version? And will we have to be “eating Ice Cream Sandwiches” to use it, or is it being tested on earlier versions of the Android OS? :-D


  6. Thank you for making a Android version.. I will be buying for sure.. any word about this years World Wide Photowalk..?

  7. Woohoo! Glad to hear the Android version is in beta. Actually, my wife will be glad to hear that, as I’ll quit stealing her iPad from her. 

  8. Its great. However I’m a poor student. I will not have a Tablet PC in the next few years, and I personally don’t really see the necesssity in those devices even if I had the money spare. What if you made some kind of PDF-Epaper or so with the features, I’d order it instantly.

    Ah and hey… I think there should be a special offer on kelby training for students. I’d love to get member however in Germany where I am from I get like everything that has to do with education waaay cheaper when I send my university pass. I’d love to see that!

    Best Regards from Germany! :-)

  9. finally! android based issues, that is HUGE!  Thank you!

  10. Hopefully the Android version will work better than the iPad version. My subscription on iPad doesn’t work as issues will not open. Will subscripts for the iPad be transferable to Android? Maybe that will be a way to salvage my investment.

  11. Scott:  PLEASE, P L E A S E  modify the App so we can browse the cover & TOC for past issues! Currently, this is not possible!

  12. is there any way those non-tablet people can subscribe/view this magazine? Seems odd that you’re limiting your audience this way.

  13. I am still having the same problems as with the last two issues. The issue downloads but won’t open. It just dims for a minute and then nothing. Am I the only one having this problem?

  14. Can someone enlighten me on how to get the magazine app on my IPad.  I downloaded it from iTunes and it shows that is “downloaded”, but I can’t the the app on my PC or my connected iPad.  I have other magazines on it that work fine, but this one just won[‘t make itself visible???

  15. Sorry for the dup posting…. I downloaded the app from iTUNIES  and it shows the app with status of “downloaded”, but I can’t find it on my iPad??  Have other magazines that work, but can’t make this one happen.  Not going to subsribe until I get this puppy working.

  16. Hm, no Light It app for Android on the Nexus 10? Continuing the search, my iPad is too old by now and too lowres.
