New Book Release

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic - The Ultimate Guide

You can do a great deal of research on the web these days, but there is no substitution for having everything at hand in a reference book.

My latest book covers Adobe Lightroom Classic. For many photographers, Adobe Lightroom Classic is the digital darkroom software of choice. With state-of-the-art capability that keeps growing and developing every year, Lightroom is the gold standard for photo-processing and is equally able to support individual or organizational needs. Once you are familiar with the toolset, the software starts to feel like second nature, with everything logically organized and grouped to support an efficient workflow.

In this book, I cover all of the controls in detail complete with worked examples to demonstrate each tool's capability. I also cover complete end-to-end post-processing workflows to help you get the best out of the tool.

Understanding Your Camera & Camera Gear

Digital photographers need to understand how their camera works. This includes for instance Aperture, Depth of Field, Shutter Speed & Light Sensitivity. Also, a photographer needs to grasp the principles of lighting, exposure, composition, and focus.

All of these things significantly impact the creativity and composition of a captured image.

Some photographers specialize in a specific genre of photography, whilst others move between different genres. Whatever you choose to specialize in, a photographer needs to understand the technical requirements & techniques for that genre. This includes things like purchasing the correct camera equipment to do the job. As well as using the correct composition techniques, to avoid some of the pitfalls like over-exposure, unwanted blur, and camera shake.
