  218. I’m up for a book win, today.  Thanks!

  219. That’s a lot of free stuff, wow. Any book would be awesome. Thanks for everything!

  220. Really looking forward to Scott’s new book – I want to complete the set and learn even more…

  221. Would love a copy of the fourth part of the series. The first 3 were great.

  222. Atlanta? I can get to it….just can’t afford the ticket.

  223. I think it’s an understatement to say the first 3 books were great. #Classics.

  224. Free stuff Thursday. What a great concept. Would enjoy Scott’s new book. 

  225. Woohoo! Free stuff! Thanks for the chance to win Scott.

  226. Hey Scott,
    I would love to win your new book, even though I’m about to buy it.  I would give it to a friend.

  227. The new book looks great.

  228. Great Stuff today guys!!

  229. Scott,
    thank you so much for all the great hits you have supplied us over the years. the books, webinars, NAPP. i cant keep up with it all; i guess i will have to just quit my job, catch up to you and your crew and become a groupie!

  230. Digital photography offers so many opportunities for creativity that I am sure this volume will encourage more of this.

  231. Does the book come with a pair of Ernie Ball Strings too?

  232. I love these books, I actually use them in my photography class and they help! Thank You!

  233. Can’t wait for the next version!

  234. Would love to win a copy of either volume 4 or Joe’s book. Thank you!

  235. Get Calvinized! That would be awesome! Long flight from Phx but it would totally worth it! Of course, Scott’s book would be groovy too.

    FYI. Sketching Light is fantastic. If you don’t win it, don’t wait to buy it. Joe is not only a great instructor, but he is also entertaining to read (and watch for that matter).

  236. I don’t have The Digital Photography Book series yet, but I could always start from n.4!

  237. Book Four? Hope I Score!

  238. I would love to win any of the books.

  239. I bought volume 1, years ago and that was the start into the “Kelby World” .  Loved it and all of the other Scott Kelby books I have purchased/videos.  I would LOVE volume 4!!

  240. Joe’s new book is called Sketching Light? That’s what I call OuttaSight!

  241. Hi All,
    Would love to get a free copy of the Digital photography book Vol 4.. 


    Thanks, Glenn N

  242. The first three had so much content I can’t wait to see what else you came up with to write about. These are the best photography books I’ve ever seen and read and I’m sure number four will continue the trend.

  243. An investment in knowledge will always outweigh an investment in equipment. Book ‘me (’em) Danno! :)

  244. It would be an honor to win this book! 

  245. YES, would LOVE to get the Digital Photography book Part 4!!!
    After I went to the Light It! Shoot It! Retouch It! seminar in Denver last year I’m totally hooked on Kelby Training…Have a few of Scott’s books already. (

  246. Because I have the first 3 Kelby digital photography books and the 4th would be the “icing on the cake”. Ticket to see Calvin Hollywood in Tampa would be awesome too! 

  247. I would love to win the Sketching Light. book by Joe McNally. I’m trying to get into protrait photography and that would be a great tool :))

  248. I’m really looking forward to book 4. I’ve been teaching Photoshop & Photography classes for about 10 years now in WV and your first 3, and now this one, are the first books I recommend. Everyone really likes your writing style. I tell them that it’s just like you were standing there with us talking about cameras. Same thing with your Photoshop books. You have a real teaching gift. Hope to see you again, LIVE, sometime soon.

  249. Scott Kelby’s books were the first ones I ever bought when I made the decision to get into photography, and I’ve never looked back.  Buying his new one isn’t in the budget right now, so winning it would be awesome!  Thanks to Scott and his team for all they do for the photographic community.

  250. I would love to win Scott’s new book. I’m too far from Atlanta to want the tickets.

  251. Scott, i’m a big fan of all you do. Thanks so much for helping all of us improve!

  252. Loved the first three books. Know I’m going to love the fourth. Any giveaway is a good giveaway.

  253. I am looking forward to your fourth Digital Photography book!

  254. Would love to go to the Atlanta training!!
    Also, love all of your books.

  255. Scott, I forgot to put in my first message which Light it….seminar.  The one in Atlanta.  Thanks!!


  256. Now that Hasselblads will ship with LR4, can we get Hassie discounts thru NAPP? Seriously you  should talk to them about having a flyer inserted for Kelby Training in their box.

  257. I like free stuff Thursday…especially when I get a chance to win something useful

  258. YES, please get me to the training with Jack Reznicki :))

  259. A workshop with Calvin Hollywood in Tampa sounds GREAT…Please give me a ticket!

  260. What is better than winning….would love to have one of the The Digital Photography Book Part 4 books

  261. Oh boy!  Hoping for the copy of Digital Photography Book Part 4, Sketching Light, or a ticket to the Princeton Photo Workshop!!  That’s the worst part about being a poor photographer; after spending all my money on camera equipment, it’s hard to find cash to learn how to use it!

  262. I own the first 3 books and I have been part of Kelbytraining for a while. I enjoy everything Scott does. Keep up the good work.

  263. The book looks like another hit. This free one will go great with the other 3.

  264. I would love to win any of these great books or whatever you want to through at me.  Looking forward to PSW in a few weeks!!!

  265. Sketching Light looks like another great book from Joe, and Scott’s book 4 looks great too. Hoping for either of those! Keep up the great work guys! :)

  266. I have Scott Kelby’s Digitial Photobraphy Book – volume 1.  I would love to win the  Scott Kelby’s Digital Photography Book – Part 4.   Enjoy your blogs, books & videos.

  267. Got books 1,2 and 3. Planning to buy #4 to make it the best selling book.  BUT….if you want to give it me…     Love reading the blog everyday.

  268. The “Digital Photography” books are brilliant. Quick and to the point! I have all three and look forward to #4!

  269. What can I say other than thank you Scott (and Brad for posting). I have bought Digital Photography Book Part 2 and one of your other books “Professional Portrait Retouching Techniques for Photographers Using Photoshop”. Great books and well written. I would love to read part 4 of the Digital Photography Book!

    I Live in Denmark so I hope not I win any workshop event… you know, I can’t afford the trip to US even though I would love to visit your country. Maybe that happens some day… I wish!

    Keep up the good work, that makes me happy!

    John Morck

  270. I would love to win Scott’s new book. Enjoyed the others!!

  271. Scott’s books are always worth it.

  272. I’d love book four!  I have the others and have read them a number of times!

  273. While I would love to go to a seminar, there would be no way that I can transport myself there. The books all look lovely, especially Joe McNally’s. I haven’t read that one yet. If I don’t win, I’ll definitely pick up a copy. How did I not know about this ‘Free Stuff Thursday’ before? Anyways, congrats to those who win any of the tickets though, let us know how it turns out.

  288. Holy carp (yes, I just referenced a religious fish) I could win The Digital Photography Book Part 4 or a workshop with Jack Reznicki at a location I could actually drive to just by posting a comment?
