Scott Kelby explains his methods very well,along it easy to follow, with the bonus of the link to download the images and complete them as you read through the chapter.
An excellent book with hints and tips that I have been able to put to use in my general photography and work too.
It has proved a good purchase which I would recommend to anyone looking to advance both their studio photography and post processing.

I would have liked to see some guides for product lighting, but maybe that's another book.
Well done Mr Kelby.
The book is also a slight deviation from his normal offerings in that it talks about lighting, the photography and image manipulation more or less in sequence and simultaneously rather than treating them as distinct from each other. Unfortunately for most of us, lottery winners aside, he has access to a studio about half the size of a football pitch and enough lighting equipment to fill a film company's lighting van. Whilst we may be able to provide a temporary studio in a lounge or other room in our house and perhaps have one or two lamps, they are not likely to be of the size or types shown here. Forgiving that, we may be able to partly duplicate the shots with available facilities.
Kelby is one of the most prolific current writers on photography, and one of the most knowledgeable. He lectures and offers tutorials in person and on disk on behalf of several training companies and, occasionally, for Adobe mostly using Photoshop or Photoshop Lightroom. Although there are some negative comments from other reviewers, this book is intended as a learning medium for those wishing to improve their photography. It is not intended for the more expert photographer or those who have extensive experience with image manipulation, whether with Lightroom, Photoshop or anything else.
If this book suits your purposes in one or more of the areas covered by its title, it is one that you should certainly consider and probably buy. It is not the most complete offering on either of its subject fields and, if your needs are greater than this book provides, there are other offerings that may better suit. However, if an all-in-one solution will suffice, this is about as good as you will find.
