Ron Martinsen’s Review of The Digital Photography Book Part 1, Second Edition
Photo blogger Ron Martinsen recently wrote a review of Scott’s update of his best-selling The Digital Photography Book, Part 1. You may remember Ron from last week’s 100th episode of The Grid, where he joined Scott and myself (Brad) to tackle viewer requested topics like Lightroom 5, copyright law, photography role-models and more. In the review, he talks about Scott’s approach to sharing photography tips, shares what’s new in the book, and gives a chapter-by-chapter synopsis, along with his thoughts on the book.

Head on over to to see the review and even get some great discounts on stuff like Kelby Training, NAPP, and Photoshop plug-ins! And leave a comment for your chance to win a free copy of The Digital Photography Book, Part 1, Second Edition!

  33. TOTALLY want to see scott kelby in San Jose!!! It’s on my list; but would be fantastic to win that.

  34. Off topic ==> Creative Cloud: Now that word is getting out that the Creative Cloud in its latest iteration has been hacked, Maybe Adobe needs to concentrate on providing better security for the product. The hacking community apparently and easily did its job. As a licensee of LR1-4 and shortly LR5, PS CS1-6, and possibly PS CC in the future, I have to believe the CC distribution process wasn’t tested thoroughly. Does not bode well for a PS/LR bundle in the near future as resources have or will be diverted.

  35. Like to read your blog every day.

    To see Scott in Indianapolis would be an awesome gift.
