  1. I watched Erik’s workshop today. Great information! I live right outside of Philadelphia and would love to win the free ticket to Scott’s seminar!

  2. Thanks Brad. I just upgraded to CS6 tonight and really want the book. If I don’t win I will forced to buy the book. I don’t like to be forced to buy anything. But I will.

  3. Just purchased Lightroom thanks to Kelby Media, so I would really like to win the lightroom 4 book since this is my first venture into Lightroom. 

  4. My birthday is Saturday so I am wishing for CS6 – but the book would def encourage me to fill a few more slots to buy it.  How lame is this request to win?  

  5. Oh God! I want the new CS6 book! I love Scott’s books and unfortunately as II live in Uruguay I can’t go to any seminars. Having the book would be amazing help for getting better at editing. Cheers!

  6. I live approximately 4 hours away from Nashville but I am more than willing to drive that distance just to attend Scott’s PS6 seminar!  Would you please consider me for that ticket.  Thank you!!!

  7. wow wow wow thats is the only thing i have to say. Im a faithful photoshop user and eager to learn something new everyday. Every day you learn an amazing trick on photoshop, I would love to have this book in my possession and get to learn more and more of this amazing software. Its my friend, just imagine this, my dreams are made out of layers at nights, I found myself inverting the sheets thinking they were masks. hehehe.. I would love to win this book, it would mean a lot to me.

  8. Scott Kelby! Your books have been the best over the years with their easy step by step instructions! Never found one better. I can’t wait to get the latest. I wish I could get to one of these places to meet you, but just reading your book well suffice!

  9. I was wondering why there were so many comments, then I read the book thing…

    Anyway, this is just to say that I watched the Erik Valind video a few days ago – absolutely brilliant, possibly the best on Kelby training. The way his thinks about light and manipulates it is phenomenal. No gimmicks, just pure class. 

  10. CS6 for digital photographers must be kick-ass. I’ve heard a lot about Scott’s tongue-in-cheek style of writing while providing tons of useful info at the same time.

    I listen to Kelby podcasts in the background everyday while doing editing and would love to have Scott’s book.

  11. Scott’s books are always my favourites, so I would love to win a copy of his new Photoshop CS6 for Digital Photographers book. I can’t wait to check it out.

  12. I just upgraded from Photoshop CS1 to Photoshop CS6!  I have been gagging for this new book! I’d love a copy!!!  That being said, see you in Philly, Scott!


  13. Was thinking of upgrading from CS5 to CS6. I really love the Digital Photographer series and winning this would save me some cash to use for the seminar tour when it hits Boston…….?

  15. I was watching the lifestyle photography the other day while riding a stationary bike. At first I thought okay, another watch me shoot portraits. But then he got into explaining the use of black scrims in full sunlight and whipped out the ND scrim. I was hooked.

  16. Would be nice to win a copy of the book. Recently laid off so money tight, but upside is I do have more time for photography, so it’s a win.

  17. I would love a seminar pass to NYC or the Photoshop CS6 book for Digi Photographers. I learn heaps from both so Scott must be doing something right ;)

  18. I have already watched the Eric Class on Kelby Training.  Excellent Class.  I loved the part where he had the cherri picker over the pool!  I would love a copy of Scott’s new book so I could share this with my students.

  19. Your CS5 book was a huge help getting me up and going with Photoshop.  I just purchased your Lightroom4 book and would LOVE to have your new CS6 book!

  20. I have the last two copies of this book and purchased them for over $40 at Barnes and Noble.  Would love a buy two get one free deal. :)  You guys are doing great work, keep it up.

  21. Sign me up.  BTW: I loved the NIK HDR Efex offer last week.  I just came back from the Grand Canyon with a boat load of HDR images to process.  Could you do a class comparig the various HDR options including 32-bit TIFF processing in LR4.1? Thanks.

  22. Hi, Would love to win Scott’s new book “Photoshop-cs6-book-for-digital-photographers”. I know someday I will be getting CS6 and if I win I will be all set! Thank you, Jan Gemeinhardt

  23. I’m not sure I have any more room on my bookshelf for ANOTHER fantastic Scott Kelby book, but if I win I’ll get started building another one right away!

  24. Fingers crossed, here is to hoping :) This book would be rad as i JUST bought CS6 (student edition) a few days ago, and the changes are impressive.

  25. Its funny I’ve bought like 5 different copy’s or the digital photographers book and i keep end up loaning them out and I still dont have one now. Looks like Ill have to get the new one.  Id be happy to win one if thats a possablity. :)

  26. Can’t put down the Lightroom 4 book.  Glad I got it in the spiral bound.  I will wait for the CS6 in spiral bound if I don’t win one.

  27. Hey Brad and Scott,

    I sure could use your Photoshop CS6 Book for photographers!  I hope you can make it to Denver with your new CS 6 course.  Love to see you and meet you!


  28. I would happliy have a new book to read over the summer but that’s not the importance in this message!
    It’s about you Brad, when will you release your book? I mean, you have the God himself as your master and then all your team mates as well. I think you have a lot of skills to write a book in your own. Why not on concert photography?

    Looking forward to it Brad! /Anders

  29. I would love to be a winner.  I enter so many of the Kelby Media’s contests and have yet to win.  Maybe I will get luck today.  Or most likely, maybe not.  

  30. Thanks you Scott for all the knowledge you share with us from books to videos to seminars, your output is truely amazing! And the staff you surround yourself with is another amazing story.

  31. Of course I want to win Scott’s book!!  I looked up the dates for his tour, any chance he’s coming to San Francisco later?  Unfortunately, I’m not in town when he visits Sacramento.

  32. I have been reading Scott’s books and watching videos on Kelby Training and Kelby TV for a couple of years now. How am i just now finding his blog? I would love the book or seminar by the way.
