5.0 out of 5 stars The Missing Link between Vision and Post Processing, 9 Aug 2010

This review is from: Vision and Voice: Refining Your Vision in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
Like David's previous books, the writing and standard of photography is very high. The book has three parts to it: A number of chapters on shooting with vision, intention and how this vision needs to be carried through to post processing, a section on David's view of the Lightroom tools and the final section has 20 of David's photographs describing his vision for them and how he carried his vision through to post. For me, the first and last parts are the most valuable, the middle part is necessary I suppose to complete the book and useful for those new to Lightroom.

The first part of the book is fantastic, a clear discussion on what vision means, why it is important and how post processing should support that vision and intent.

The last part of the book is also useful but more practical in nature and gives an insight into David's thinking both on his vision and how to express the vision in post. My only criticism in this section is he refers to the histogram quite a bit but doesn't show it in the text. However, the fact you can download his RAW files and follow through the post processing yourself is a great addition and gets over the missing histograms.

As with most PeachPit books, the standard of publication is very good. Any serious photographer will find this book of value even if you only read the first part.
