Written in concert with Adobe's development of the Photoshop
Lightroom 2 Beta, The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital
Photographers - by #1 bestselling computer and technology author,
Scott Kelby - is the most complete and concise Lightroom "how-to"
book for digital photographers of all skill levels.
In The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers,
Scott walks readers through the basics of Lightroom use, leading
them to a brilliantly devised and super efficient digital
photography workflow that dramatically improves productivity and
allows photographers to spend less time processing photos and more
time shooting them.
Throughout the book Scott shares his personal camera and Lightroom
settings, as well as the studio-tested techniques he's developed
for his own photography workflow. The book is written in his
trademark step-by-step, plain English style, and because he knows
what really works and what doesn't, he isn't shy to tell you flat
out which tools to use, which to avoid, and why. This allows
digital photographers of any skill level to jump right in using
Lightroom like a pro from the very start, sidestepping a lot of the
frustrations that typically haunt those unfamiliar with new
applications…especially those as powerful as Lightroom.
What really sets The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital
Photographers apart from other Lightroom books on the market are
the last two bonus chapters where Scott answers the questions, "In
exactly what order am I supposed to do things in Lightoom," and
"Where does Photoshop fit in to the mix?" Both chapters start with
an on-location photo shoot, including full details on the
equipment, camera settings, and lighting techniques. Readers then
witness as he takes the photos from each shoot through the entire
workflow process, to the final output of the 16"x20" prints. And,
because he incorporates Photoshop seamlessly right into this
workflow, you'll learn some of the latest Photoshop techniques for
portrait and landscape photography as well.
If you're one of those people who learns best by actually doing the
projects yourself; who learns best without all the complicated
technical explanations and confusing jargon, and if you really want
to start using Lightroom today to unlock the productivity secrets
of "The new digital photography workflow,"---there is no faster,
more "straight-to-the-point" or more fun way to learn than this
groundbreaking new book, and you are absolutely going to love
