Lightroom 3 Classroom In A Book

Lightroom 3 – Classroom in a Book

This review comes from Lightroom Tampa Bay member Velva Lee Heraty. Velva took advantage of our groups access to books from Peachpit, a members only benefit and was kind enough to share her thoughts. If you are a member in the Tampa Bay area, check out the members only section for a list of the books that are available.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3: Classroom in a Book is not a book you curl up with on the couch. It’s an official training workbook from Adobe Systems and requires you spend an afternoon or two in front of your computer to get your money’s worth

The workbook contains 324 pages of instruction that includes a download of nine lesson files from the enclosed CD-ROM. The big advantage in downloading the lessons is the ability to go at your own pace. This reviewer is now on lesson six and enjoys the fact that past files are readily available and easily accessible if need be.

Classroom in a Book is heavily illustrated for additional input away from the computer and boasts a seven-page index. For the total newbie who enthusiastically buys their first digital camera and jumps into training mode a glossary of terms would have been useful. I highly recommend this user-friendly book”.

The information he writes is clear and helpful. I’m comfortable working in Lightroom and learned very useful techniques in this book.

Vision and Voice – Refining your Vision in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

This review comes from Lightroom Tampa Bay member Beth McNabb. Beth took advantage of our groups access to books from Peachpit, a members only benefit and was kind enough to share her thoughts.

Vision and Voice Book

“I started this book in my typical way. Scan the beginning and skip to what interested me. I am used to a Tips and Tricks style. However, this is not that kind of book!

So, I restarted it a couple of times. Then, I got it.

The book is about finding your vision or style and how to craft it in Lightroom.

It has good information and is worth the time to read the beginning and then see how he (David DuChemin) uses Lightroom to refine his images. He starts by zeroing his images in Lightroom and trust me, they don’t look very good that way! But, as you tug and pull Lightroom’s tools to achieve your vision the end result is worth it!

The information he writes is clear and helpful. I’m comfortable working in Lightroom and learned very useful techniques in this book.

Thanks for letting me use it and review it.
Now it’s your turn! Enjoy.”
