4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly a Bible of LR but misses key points., 22 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good book, reviews how to get things done in a straight forward way, does not cover everything but hey LR can do most things. I only use PS when I get stuck, this book use real live examples to do things his way, give the key strokes and the short cuts. PS is way to big a programme to dive into.LR is the tool for that, I will probably never read the whole book, but there again have not read all the Bible but I would still recommend it as a must have book. Video stuff is pointless, I do not do Video. A good book to have and very easy to read. Love the humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, a must have in your tool kit., 22 Jun. 2015
What a brilliant book, well laid out and answers real questions. Scott Kelby's books are great to start with but do jump around a lot. Martin Evenings books are very technical and do assume a lot of prior knowledge. This book has got it about right. The techy stuff is there to dive into, the workflows are well laid out. The bits I really do like are the real issues, like how do you transfer a library to a new machine, where are the pre sets stored, how can I change the splash scree (great one this). I had Victroria book on LR4, 5 did not change much so I did not bother, 6 has had a total rewrite so I though why not. I pre ordered it and got the e book straight away, very handy to have on my main PC in e form. But being and old foggy I do like Books, you can flick through, post it notes and book marks etc. A great book. Looking forward to LR8!


Shoot to Thrill : Speedlight Flash Techniques for Photographers
Shoot to Thrill : Speedlight Flash Techniques for Photographers
by Jessica Mowbray
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another great find from Mr Mowbray, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yet another great find from Mr Mowbray, his books are simply the best I have found on using TTL flash in a real world environment. Straight talking, a bit of humour but just full of fact and examples. Other authors tend to take the subject of speedlights as a black art which only they can possibly understand. This book is bang on the money and "does what it says on the tin". 1 flash, 2 flash, on camera, off camera they are all in this book. No idea who Jessica is but this book is also full of gorgeous women or seniors! Highly recommend this book along with his other books on the subject of using speedlights. The American Equivalent of Michael Freeman? No he is far and away better. 10 out 10

4.0 out of 5 stars To complete my library on PS and LR!, 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great book full of examples to work through, all clearly tested and straight to the point. Scott is what I call a relaxed author, full of humour and easy to read. He doesn't go into technical detail too much. Just says the Magic Wand tool is great use it. Marching ants and all. A great companion book to Martin Evening's book on PS CC. Bang up to date with the latest release too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Must have book from Martin, 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great workshop manual for PS CC, as musty have, full of all the technical detail required. Has a very good index which enable a great serah to be done to solve issues. PS is complicated and I am sure you do not need or want all the information available in the book. It is very comprehensive and makes a great partner to Scott Kelby's books which arte straight to the point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I have been waiting for!, 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a superb book. has just the right level of information. It is pitched at the competent photographer so it is advanced. A great read and packed full of ideas about how to use speedlights. It is written around Cannon products but refers to the Nikon CLS as well. Gives great guidance on what NOT to buy. I too use 4 speedlights and a Sekonic flash meter so it makes a lot of sense to me. I have to say Amherst Media do have a lot of photography books on lighting and portraits, but this being a new book is bang up to date with the latest speedights and dispels lots of myths about the need for large power packs and studio lights.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a shine. look no further than this, 10 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great Value, my old one broke, it went round the wrong way and kept unscrewing the pads! This is a great low cost buy, I would not use it every day as it is a bit delicate, but gives a great finish being a genuine Dual Action polisher. Silverline products always give great value for money
