Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It: Learn Step by Step How to Go from Empty Studio to Finished Image (Voices That Matter)

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, YOU’LL LEARN ALL THREE ASPECTS OF WHAT IT TAKES TO CREATE STUNNING PORTRAITS
(HINT: IT’S NOT JUST THE LIGHTING)

Scott Kelby, the world’s #1 best-selling author of photography books, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of Photoshop User magazine, and Publisher of the just-released Light It magazine, has reinvented how lighting books are written by finally revealing the entire process from start to finish. You see everything from the complete lighting setup (and all the gear used), to the shoot (including all the camera settings and a contact sheet of the progression of the shoot), to the all-important part that most books don’t dare include–the post-processing and retouching in Photoshop. This book also breaks new ground in the visual way it teaches you the lighting setup. There aren’t any sketches or 3D models–you see the lighting layout in a full-page photo, 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, so you can absolutely nail the lighting every time.

LEARN THE LIGHTING SETUPS THE PROS USE
Each year, Scott trains thousands of professional photographers during his Light It. Shoot It. Retouch It. LIVE! seminar tour and now, for the first time ever, he’s taken that incredibly popular style of learning and put in into book form. Now everyone can have a real-world reference for getting the same looks today’s clients are clamoring for.

You’ll learn:

  • The step-by-step layouts for creating the most-requested and sought-after lighting looks
  • How to get more out of one light than you ever thought you could (this is worth it alone!)
  • How to control and shape your light without breaking the bank
  • The camera settings, gear, and power settings for every shot
  • The retouching techniques the pros really use to make their subjects look their very best
  • How to retouch hair, eyes, lips, skin, and lots of other little retouching tricks that make a really big difference
  • How to create high-contrast portrait effects without buying expensive plug-ins
  • A host of insider tricks, invaluable shortcuts, and kick-butt special effects to give you a real advantage over the competition

Plus, Scott includes a special bonus chapter that shows how to create these same studio looks using off-camera hot shoe fl ashes and the modifi ers made for them. There’s never been a book like it.


Amazon.com Exclusive: Bonus Content from Scott Kelby, Author of Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It

Digital Photography for Beginners: How To Improve At Digital Photography In 60 Minutes. Learn Digital Photography Secrets, Lighting for Digital Photography, Digital Food Photography and much more

Photos are windows into our souls, into our lives and memories. Each photo brings back countless emotions and is a snapshot of a moment in time. Looking at a wedding photo brings back fond memories of smiling, dancing, being surrounded by cheering friends, and perhaps crying as you stared into the eyes of the love of your life. Looking at a picture of an old pet brings back nostalgia for your childhood, remembrance of bright, sunny days when you went to the park to play catch or take a walk, and of grooming soft fur. Yet oftentimes these pictures turn out blurry or simply wrong, but who really cares as long as at least one picture is decent? But what if you could do more than just avoid blurriness? What if you could really, truly capture an important, memorable moment in your life with a quality that brings tears to your eyes years later rather than the question: “Where was this even taken?” Maybe these questions aren’t things you’ve thought about, or things you even knew you needed to know to take good pictures. But these are all very much keys to succeeding at digital photography. In this book, I will lead you through every step to success you need in learning how to take digital photos like a professional. This includes: • Choosing the right camera • Photography techniques • Specific types of photography, like food, weddings, and landscapes • Photo editing • And much more! So go on, and give it a shot. Soon you will find that the perks of knowing how to properly take a photo go far beyond merely saving money at a wedding by taking the photos yourself. After all, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and our memories caught in an eternal moment of time are priceless.
