This book is a wonderful introduction to the program for people who may be considering it and a good addition to the (few) Lightroom manuals. I think a beginner would enjoy its flow because it moves briskly through the essentials without going through the amount of detail found in the how-to books. It provides a lot of information without being ponderous. I particularly appreciated the clear illustrations of how to use or abuse features that were added in Lightroom 1.1. You do not need to be a professional photographer or use expensive equipment to benefit from either the program or this boo,
But much of the value of this book is in the photographs shared by the other professional photographers on the Iceland field trip. (Their names and the sites for their web-galleries are listed on pages xvi - xvii.) I keep having to retreive Aaland's book from other people who just want to look at the pictures. And they are stunning. The only problem with them, perhaps, is that people like me stop looking for information and start looking at the pictures, and sometimes thinking "I need to try that, do I have anything in my Lightroom library that might work?" and then staying up far far too late. And learning as we go.
If you like looking at photographs but never use Lightroom, you might like this book. If you use Lightroom and are less than a Guru, you will probably enjoy and benefit from this book. If you learn visually, you will cherish this book.
Always assuming you can keep it away from the rest of your household.
It does not have the humor built in as Scott Kelby's books but I found this book to answer many questions I had concerning Lightroom. I have been using lightroom on a nearly daily basis since early 07.
some good tips are included and this book follows the same theme as the others on lightroom. its a very easy read and gets into more specifics by devoting 5 chapters to developing your pics.
This is my 3rd book on lightroom and they all cover the same 90% and offer 10% that I am looking for(the tips and tricks). I can read online manuals and documents just like anyone else for the 90%...its the 10% that I hope is worth the book price.
this book has that 10%, just wish I could find a book that has 50% or more of what I want these days.
its over 300 pages and has a lot of great color photos and screenshots that take up most of the book. the screenshots are all legible which helps walk you through what is being described.
I like this a bit more than scott kelby's book on lightroom but there are no walkthroughs from start to finish like in kelby's book(a wedding and landscape walkthrough)
wish I knew more, would write my own book...lol
