A New Must-Have Book (and a contest!)

I’m making this one short and sweet because it speaks for itself. Scott Kelby’s “The Digital Photography Book – Volume 2” has just come out. If it’s not on your must-have list yet, then it should be. Here’s 3 reasons why:

1. The Digital Photography Book Volume 1 was absolutely fantastic. It’s one of the few books I read each year that leave me wanting more. This one did, and Volume 2 is the “more”. It picks up with all the things I wanted to learn after Volume 1.

2. I already have a job – reading books ain’t one of them – and this book is a total pleasure to read. It’s got killer information packed into 1 page layouts that make it easy for me to feel like I’ve actually read and learned something.

3. Volume 1 of the book is still in the top 100 of ALL books on Amazon after 18 months. It’s got nearly 400 reviews (and almost every one is 5 stars). I don’t know about you but that’s enough for me to want volume 2 as well.

So go buy one. Now! I’m waiting. Just kiddin’ – here’s the link if you want to find out more. Now the contest. Edit: Note that the contest is over. See above post “We have a winner”. I’ll get a copy of the book signed by Scott and send it out to the winner. Just leave a comment to this post. All you have to do is say “Hi” or something like that but make sure you use your real email address (it won’t be published) so I can get in touch with you. I’ll randomly draw a name from the list on Friday afternoon and post it here. Good luck.

Now go to the next post of the Friday tip ‘o the week.

    Yeah, Vol. 1 is one of the greatest books ever written on Digital Photography. I’ll wait until Friday to see if I have to buy Vol. 2 or not ;).

    Another Killer Tip.

    I have had vol 1 and not only love it but use it regularly. A great book. I will be ordering vol 2 without a doubt.

    Matt,

    Just bought this book in San Francisco, I plan on reading the whole thing this weekend. I have volume one, which only made me want this one even more. Scott totally rocks, and he always has the hottest models in his books (pg. 65) ; P

    Now I’m waiting on your Layers book and I’ll be all set !!

    Hey Matt,

    Thanks a lot for putting up this website and the podcast. Lightroom has made the pp part of photography a breeze. It’s nice to have a place to come to ask questions and get the answers via a podcast. Keep up the good work.

    I have both books too and enjoy them immensley as I have learned so much. I constantly refer to them to get more info when I am doing photography. I am so happy to see a section on Macro photography as I just purchased a used (great condition) Sigma 105mm Macro today for my Nikon D80.

    BTW, keep up the great work on the blog Scott….I read it everyday including Scott Kelby’s.

    Hi Matt,

    Wow over 260 replys already! Yes, Scott’s books are great. I have both volumes already and have finished reading the second one. I have read the book, not applied all techniques yet. I’ll need a lot more time for that.

    I also want to thank you for your site and all the info you provide. Along with Scott’s blog, this is on my must check every day. Your tips, presets and videos have been great in learning Lightroom. Keep them coming…

    It’s good to see that we haven’t lost the need for real books in an age where everything requires a web browser. Sometimes when I’m off with my camera, the book in the backpack can save the day.

    Thanks for the contest. I also have the first volume and I would love to get my hands on the 2nd volume, too. If I am able to get it for free, that’s only better! Also, thanks for putting out these great tips in an easy to understand format and explanations.

    Matt,

    As a new Lightroom user (just installed it two nights ago) I have to give you credit in part for my decision to go in that direction (I’d also have to give Scott K. some props on that as well). The abundance and quality of the info you provide related directly to Lightroom told me that while I’m learning it and using it I’ll never be out there on my own wondering how to do something. I love your site and the tips are great … even for the new guy. I also have Scott’s first book and it is outstanding. I only keep a couple of books in my bag (paper takes up a lot of room) … my camera owner’s manual and Scott’s Digital Photography Volume 1. IΒ’ll wait to see if I win before I go out and buy Volume 2.

    Regards,
    Dennis

    Hey Matt,

    You rock, buddy! How is it that I always seem to buy books shortly before the next version comes out?! Oh well, vol. 1 was (and still is) awesome and has helped me a lot. Love your Lightroom tips (wouldn’t mind seeing a blog on tips for lifetime PC users switching over to Mac – I think I’m going to become a Mac user (P-T anyway) later this year).

    Here’s a suggestion to pass on to Adobe – let dual-OS users have a copy of their products that they can install both on 1 PC and 1 Mac. So many of the plug-in companies offer their software for both platforms with a single purchase, why not Adobe?

    But I digress. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for all your hard work in helping us all get the most out of these programs!

    I visit this site several times a week, always looking forward to the tips. I love Scott’s books for there ability to teach techniques. I am currently reading his 7 point System book. I highly recommend it to any photographer, even if you have other CS3 books. Which I do but this is “the ONE” you must have.

Yikes… Well put me on that list also. I would love a copy of Scotts book I have read the 1st on a few times myself. i like his style, and like you said.. It is all there on one page. He had a great entry in his blog this morn, for Lightroom 2.0 wishlist. I hope some of his wishes do get into the nex version.. Because I am a shameless person,, Pick Me Pick Me..

    As always thanks for your great work.

    Both books totally rock. I have re-read the first book a number of times. I received #2 recently and dropped everything to read it. The studio information is invaluable and easy to follow for a beginning photographer. Great Books!

    Thanks Matt for all you great presets and tips for Lightroom. One of the coolest tips was the surreal edgy effect. It rocks. I also use your color presets for individual colors to help in determining where certain colors are located within the photo when I want too boost just that color. What a time saver. Thanks again for all your Tips!!

    Scott Kelby’s Lightroom Book is excellent. If my name comes out of that marathon hat of yours I would be delighted to have a copy of his photography book winging its way to me here in Western Australia.

    By the way – have you any idea whether ADOBE is giving any thought to enabling images to be imported into lightroom from scanners?
    It would be S-O-O-O-O- GOOD if they did, eh!

    Hi Matt,
    Here’s another German reader for you ;-).
    I searched for Vol. 1 at Amazon.de directly after your posting, because I loved to read Scotts “Lightroom” book. Hopefully also Vol. 2 will be translated soon in German language.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Vol.1 was great, just got Vol 2 in the mail today, but would still like to have an autographed copy. Thanks for all your tips!

    Hi Matt, I enjoy you blog and also this funny contest. I have the version 1 and I love the books. It’s really a must have one. … and now, after reading your blog, I’m waiting desperately for the new one πŸ˜‰

    Take care.

    Hi Matt,

    I really enjoy all your tips and videos, even have a special section in Lightroom for all your presets. You and Scott have really inspired me in my photography. Thanks for the contest and looking forward to another great year with Lightroom.

    Hi Matt, I hope the legs are back to normal after the marathon. I gave 2 of the Vol. 2 books to friends as gifts. I need my own. Can I have your autograph instead? Max

    Hi Matt
    Love your site here, it has been a huge help for me to get to know and use Lightroom better, really, really like the 300 preset. Keep it coming! I’ve worn out Scott’s Vol 1, can’t wait for Vol 2.

    Thank you so much
    Rob

    I have ordered my copy of Scott’s book vol 2 – hopefully it arrives soon. Volume 1 was great, so I hope to learn a lot of new stuff with this new book.
