Scott’s All-New Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It LIVE Tour

Scott Kelby, award-winning author of The Digital Photography Book and editor of Photoshop User magazine, brings one of his all-time most popular online classes to life in this amazing day where you learn it all: the lighting, the shooting, and the retouching, all live, as it happens.

You’ll see everything unfold from scratch in each session, with different lighting setups and looks, as Scott starts with an empty stage and then puts together the lighting for a live portrait shoot.

You’re right there as he takes you through the entire shoot, tweaking the lighting and working with the models. Then he takes those very same images into Photoshop where he shares his very latest portrait retouching techniques, so you can see exactly how it’s all done from start to finish.

Keep an eye out for details and tour dates over at very soon!

  2. About the RC deal for…. You guys ran this back in January too (with the combo as a pre-order). I renewed during that special but haven’t gotten my RC book and video yet. Please tell me that it’s on the way and that I don’t have to add another year of training to get it
