  1. Always an awesome post,,, thanks for offering the free tickets. I’m in Columbus and would love to be able to go to the Cincinnati event. Never been able to make it to one of Scott’s events due to distance and this would be awesome to be able to attend one. Thanks again !!!

  2. Brad,

    Tried to reach you last week regarding “Free Stuff Thursday” comment contest.

    Instead of comments like “would be a great birthday present for me” or “my Aunt Tillie lives there and I haven’t seen her in years”, why not ask for a comment with a suggestion how to help the orphange mentioned in Scott’s blog, or at a minimum ask for a comment including a personal Photoshop tip or shortcut.

    In other words make us “work for it” – it’s still free and I’m sure Pshop brainpower will come up with great suggestions for the orphanage.

    Don C.

  3. You give me a pass to the conference in cincy I will give Scott a 4 way. Whats a 4way? Well of course a cincy signature dish…steaming spaghetti, covered with secret-recipe chili and
    topped with a mound of shredded cheddar cheese. So that’s 3 items the fourth item is listening to the jedi himself (scott) school everyone on photography education.

  4. Author friend just upgraded to Elements 10 would like to upgrade myself. Want book to evaluate and be a step ahead when upgrade. Appreciate opportunity to win another awesome product.

  5. I was trained as an ‘old’ school photographer and am getting back into it, just found this site which looks great as I can use all the help I can get!!! lol
    Love Austin too

  6. Would totally love to attend Scott’s Light It. Shoot It. Retouch It. Live Tour in Austin. I’ve never really experimented with lighting so it would be a great learning experience! Enjoy what Austin has to offer if you have time!
