Scott Kelby

I was at my loal bookstore yesterday and I noticed that Scott Kelby has his third photography book out. In general I enjoy his 1st and 2nd book and I was just wondering what other people think of his books.

Digital Photography 1 (Pretty Good)
Digital Photography 2 (Much Better)
Digital Photography 3 (Seems Quite Good)

Love to hear back from you folks.

There are two Kelby books reviewed here - but not the one you mention.

Re: Scott Kelby

I joined kelby training a while ago and I must admit, for how much it is, its well worth it, video tutorials are very clear and concise and they cover lots of different topics, wedding photography, studio work, on location, and stacks of stuff on cs3, cs4, lightroom, elements, VFM in my opinion

Re: Scott Kelby

I have to admit I'm a fan.

Coming from a limited knowledge base I have found his books very useful. The style is easy to follow - like he says, he aims to write it as if he was there with you on the shoot. I would imagine that if you already know what you're doing then the digital photography books will be of less use.

I also think his photoshop books are superb. I have both the Martin Evening cs4 and Scott Kelby cs4 books. They are both great, but the difference is this; If you could read and digest all of the Martin Evening book there would be very little you couldn't do in cs4...but it's about 2 inches thick!! The Scott Kelby book (also pretty thick actually) seems to realise that for editing photos (as opposed to straying in to graphic design) there's only a certain number of things that you will want to do - so it tells you how to do them in a clear, concise have it open on your lap to refer to kind of way.

Actually, the two do complement each other and are responsible (as well as a knudge from Dabhand!) for getting me to shoot in RAW and do most of my editing now in ACR.

Re: Scott Kelby

I completely agree with Slowpoke_rodriguez in that both Martin Evening and Scott Kelby books compliment each other. If I'm looking for a quick fix/info on how to do something then Scott's books are great. If I'm looking for that in depth understanding as to how to achieve something then Martin's books all the way. I love the books from both authors although there is a fair amount of duplicity (unavoidable I guess) between their successive editions.
