A Beautiful and Comprehensive Guide for All Photographers and Lightroom Users
July 12, 2015
I received Martin Evening's book in hopes to improve my abilities with Lightroom CC/6. I have been a LR user since LR3, and thought I had explored most of the program quite sufficiently for my needs. I didn't realize how much of the program I'd missed, including shortcuts, time-saving processes, and editing techniques that would have vastly improved my skills and my photo outputs, had I made use of a book like this one.
I am very impressed by the high-quality of this volume. Each page features elegant layout, color photographs, and in-depth examples and illustrations. It is a pure joy to reach anywhere in this book, to any page, and discover something new about the program that I use every day. The examples and techniques also give me fresh inspiration to reconsider edits I've done in the past. Not only do I want to revisit aspects of my photography, but I also now want to explore some of my ideas all over again. In short, I am inspired and excited to use this book as my companion for photography.
From start to finish, this book covers all possible types of photography, library organization, mobile features, and all output modules. It also goes very in-depth with all aspects of the develop module, including detailing many techniques for color and black and white editing. It provides comprehensive examples for all types and styles of editing, and RAW file format concepts (including camera calibration and RAW color editing).
Whether you are a beginner or experienced Lightroom user, amateur or professional, Martin Evening's book will offer techniques, ideas, and training to elevate your skills. I am convinced that no matter at what level your photography may be, this book will improve your style. It will improve your abilities in the entire gamut of photography, from choosing the right settings in your camera and creating a composition based on your vision, to organizing and editing your photos. It will help you create web-pages, books, contact sheets, or any other kind of output you may desire from your photography. I will continue to learn from this book, and recommend it to all Lightroom users. Good luck, you're about to make a very wise purchase.
