Light It Up! is available in two versions: the Standard Edition retails for only US$ 24.95 and consists of the 185 page PDF ebook. For US$ 10 extra, you can purchase the Deluxe Edition which adds the following extra content:
Deluxe Edition bonus content #1:
The Deluxe Edition of Light It Up comes with 3 videos (45 minutes playing time in total). The first video, 'For The Birds', shows you how I shot one particular image on a recent trip to Varanasi and how I processed it in Lightroom and Photoshop. In the second video, I share my 'Layering Lights' technique with you: a cool technique to create really beautifully lit photos with just one light. In the final video, I walk you through some of the images in the eBook, giving you additional behind-the-scenes information.
Deluxe Edition bonus content #2:
A set of 5 Lightroom presets like the ones I use in the tutorial videos.
And because I like a discount as much as you do, you can use code light10 upon checkout to save 10 percent (code is valid on the Standard and the Deluxe Edition).
