Description

In Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It, bestselling author Scott Kelby focuses on the three necessary components of a great shot-the lighting and its setup, the shot itself, and the post-processing.

The book is chock-full of diagrams that show students exactly what to do in order to get specific types of shots-right on down to how many feet to set the strobe from the subject, and the subject from the camera. In the 16 shots covered in the book, Scott addresses all of today's most popular types of lighting setups, from edgy, dramatic, high-contrast light to soft, beautiful, wrapping light. Then he takes those shots into Photoshop and shows how to process, retouch, and finish each image, from global adjustments such as exposure and contrast to local adjustments, like retouching eyes and skin.

Organized by two-page spreads, the first spread shows the final image and a contact sheet presentation of other images from the shoot; the second shows an information-packed image of the entire set-up from high above the set; the next spread shows set-up shots from all other angles (from the left of set, right of set, behind the set, and behind the camera); and the rest of the spreads take the image into post-processing in Photoshop to show how to get the final image.

There is truly nothing out there like this unique, soup-to-nuts approach, presented by one of the world's most popular photographers and instructors working today!
