Learn all three aspects of what it takes to create stunning portraits—lighting, shooting, and retouching!
Scott Kelby, the #1 best-selling author of photography technique books and Editor-in-Chief of Photoshop User magazine, has reinvented how flash lighting books are written by finally revealing the entire process from start to finish. You see everything from the complete flash and softbox setup (including all the gear used), to the shoot (including all the camera and flash settings), to the all-important part that most books don’t dare include—the post-processing and retouching in Lightroom and Photoshop.
This book also breaks new ground in the visual way it teaches you exactly how and where to set up your flash. There aren’t any sketches or drawings—you see the actual lighting setup, taken from above during the live shoot, so you can see exactly where everything’s positioned (the subject, the photographer, the lighting, the background, you name it—you see it all). Plus, you’ll see side, over-the-shoulder, and more behind-the-scenes views (with all the exact measurements), so you can absolutely nail the lighting every time.
Scott has trained thousands of photographers during his Light It. Shoot It. Retouch It. LIVE! seminar tour and he’s taken that incredibly popular style of learning and put it into book form. Now you can have a real-world reference for getting the same looks today’s clients are clamoring for. You’ll learn:
And, the entire book is written in Scott’s trademark casual, step-by-step, plain-English style. There’s never been a book like it and you’re going to love the results you get from it.
