In a sea of information, getting the right knowledge at the right time is invaluable. And one thing that new photographers really need to know is how to manage and organize their photos. Lightroom is obviously the perfect tool for this (Yep, I am biased, I love it), and Andrew S. Gibson’s ‘Mastering Lightroom Book One: The Library Module’ is the ebook to get them started.
Concentrating on getting the most out of Lightroom’s Library Module, this ebook deal comprehensively with the Digtial Asset Management (DAM) of the program. Using large, well labelled, diagrams, it takes the photographer through all the nooks and crannies. From Import to Export, Collections to Publish, it’s all there, with no stone unturned.
Breaking up the text are Andrew’s night work, and loads of portraits, making the experience even more visual. The ebook reads really well, like a good teacher explaining everything clearly. Concise where needed, and in-depth when warranted.
The flow of the book builds on previous text, but will reference future text, to give assurance that it’s going to explain things in detail. I have to say that I really like how the book has been done and I do recommend this.
At the time of writing, I notice there’s a deal on Snapdeals, giving it a price tag of $7 instead of the normal $11. http://snapndeals.com/seller/36-off-mastering-lightroom-book-one-the-library-module/. Deal ends 11:59pm GMT.
