Photoshop guru Scott Kelby has released a free iPad app that teaches the lighting techniques he used for various photographs in his portfolio.
The newly released Scott Kelby’s Lighting Recipes is a free iPad app that walks you through twenty shots in thirteen different lessons. With an approximately 45 minute runtime, each lesson has a gear guide, and lighting diagrams, as well as production shots, and the final image. And yes, there is Kelby’s commentary as well.

The graduating class of the BA photography program at the University College Falmouth needed to raise money for their end of the year show, so they decided to make and sell a cookbook. What’s neat is that each of the recipes was submitted by a famous contemporary photographer.
The resulting full color 100-page book is titled “Say Cheese?“, and features recipes from such notable photographers as Elina Brotherus, Richard Misrach, Alec Soth, Rineke Dijkstra, Tierney Gearon, Joachim Schmidt, Martin Parr, and Susan Derges.
If ordering from within the UK, the price is £9.95 (~$15) with shipping and handling included, and if you’re outside, the price is £14.95 (~$23).
Given how low the price is, this might make a great photography gift or collectible item. Imagine if we had a cookbook with recipes from famous historical photographers!
