If that's you, we'll be in touch soon. Have a great Thursday!

  1. I’ve really enjoyed your Lightroom, Photoshop Elements, and Digital Photography Books and Kelby One video training over the years. Keep up the great work!

  2. I have greatly improved in my photography and retouching since using some of Scott Kelby resources and the ‘online school’ called Kelby One is an MBA/PhD in being creative! Good work guys. Then Peter Hurley’s ‘The Headshot’ book is amazing. Just reading the excerpt but would love love looove to get the free ebook version.

  3. Just had a look at the contents to your new book “How Do I Do That In Lightroom?”. Will make using Lightroom more easy than before as it looks so practical. I would love this Lightroom book.

  4. Have never used light room but would love to learn from one of my favorite photographer’s Scott Kelly. Hopefully someday I can go to one of his seminars !

  5. As I grow older and LR gets more options, I get dumber since I have to look up the steps. And since my shebang needs work let go for the Hurley ebook that Ive also had on order for more than a year. Yes, I jumped on the LR ebook already. Who are you again?

  6. I have several of the Kelby books. This new one would be a great addition. BTW, when will a photography or lightroom training class head to Denver?

  7. I have been thinking of getting Lightroom for a long, long time now. I currently use Photoshop, but want to shift to Lightroom and this book will be really helpful.

  8. I have just begun exploring Lightroom and would love a book to learn more. Portraits are definitely something I would like to improve….
    Both would be a good addition to my photography learning library.

  9. I would really like to have a copy of how do I do that in Lightroom coming from the remotest capital city in the World Perth Western Australia we need all the help we can get.

  10. This is Perfect!
    My daughter Alyssa (9yrs old) has taken a real interest in photography. We’ve started her on the digital photography books but have been trying to figure out a great resource for her to use on lightroom!

  11. It would be amazing to receive a copy of this book. Every book I have of Scott’s has been incredibly helpful so I know this would be a great resource.

  12. I just started using LR after using Photoshop for so many years. I am loving the Develop module; but there are so many new things to learn with the Library module. I really need a LR book, and one by Scott would be so helpful; since his style just makes learning so much easier.

  13. I would love the LR Book. I have used Scott’s books to teach myself processing in both LR and PS in the past as well as his photography books. This book looks like a great resource to keep by the computer.

  14. There’s no book like a Kelby book! I think I own all of the LR books and winning one would keep my collection intact. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  15. I’m new to LR and would love a copy of “How Do I Do That” or of “The Headshot” (and won’t quip about having taken a few headshots in my rough-and-tumble youth).

  16. I purchased your Lightroom book the other day. Looks fantastic. I feel like I’m pretty strong using Lightroom so I decided to start from the beginning to see what new ideas I can pick up or maybe some tips or tricks I’ve forgotten about.Then I think it will become a great reference tool. Would love to have Peter Hurley’s book.

  17. So when I when I Do Do That I will know that I’ve Done Did That right because Scott’s a Definite Do It Right kinda guy, and if he Did Do It first all I’ve gotta Do is read his latest and become a Doer.

  18. The Lightroom book looks like it rocks. Would love to win a copy of it or the head shot book as well. Cannot wait to start reading and using the information in my workflows.

  19. It would be totally awesome to have a copy of either book. I currently have your Lightroom 5 book and use that as my “go to” reference manual.

  20. I never know if we’re supposed to leave witty, topical comments related to our preferred prize or a simple check-in to enter our name. Since I’m not witty, I’ll opt for the latter and hope that I can get a copy of the Headshot. If mentioning other prizes that I’d be interested in helps, the How Do I Do That in Lightroom book sounds dandy, too.

  21. I already took advantage of getting the Lightroom eBook as a Kelby One subscriber – excellent book!

    I would like the Peter Hurley eBook if my comment is one of the lucky ones chosen.

  22. No way. You’re kidding right? A free copy of How Do I Do That in Lightroom if I leave a comment? But what could I say?

    Do I try to be funny, or serious? Such a dilemma!

    I mean I could really do with a copy of this amazing book, but I don’t want to sound too needy!

    I also have to make sure I don’t say too much, as I might exceed the character limit, resulting in me being unable to submit my comment, thereby ending my chances of winning the book.

    Then again, if you don’t ask, you don’t get, right?

    So here goes…

    Please can you choose me to win one of your How Do I Do That in Lightroom ebooks. Thank you.

  23. How do I enter the “free stuff” draw? Am I entered just by commenting and telling you guys how awesome you are? Cuz you are. Awesome that is ;-)

  24. Would love to win this pick me and I can pick it up at the Lightroom Photoshop Seminar you guys are doing in Kansas City next Tuesday! Save you the shipping????

  25. Hey you guys still rock! Would love to see Joe McNally in either Miami or Orlando. His work and teaching are inspiring. Happy Birthday Indra!!!

  26. I’d be happy to win either book. I really would like to see how Scott put together and organized his book. So okay, if I have to choose then let it be Scott’s ‘How Do I Do That…’ book.

  27. The Lightroom book would be a great addition to my Kelby library. Your books, videos, and website have taught me everything I know about photography. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

  28. It’s my dog’s birthday today. She would love to review your new book, and she is the sharing type, and if I’m lucky, I might be able to look over her shoulder.

  29. I have been learning Lightroom thru the use of Scott’s Lightroom CC book….the new “How do I…” book seems like a great way to focus-in on specific techniques that I may use occasionally and can’t recall the details.

  30. Always interested in new techniques to editing my photos better. “How Do I Do That In Lightroom” would be perhaps the holy grail for me. And winning a copy would be the bomb! :)

  31. Love free stuff Thursday!!!!! Would love a copy of either book. I’ m very new and “green” to photography and could gain a lot from the experts

  32. I already took a look at some of the free sample pages and already modified my importing with Smart Previews. Hadn’t considered that yet until I saw that sample page. If one page helps me out, I can’t imagine what the rest of the book will do!

  33. Great! Was waiting for this kind of setup. That’s what i like about the digital photography books. You could make me very happy… ;-)
