"recommendations wanted for Lightroom 4.2 resources (books, videos, etc.)"


Charlottesville, US
          

I have taken a step up in my post-processing software, moving from Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 to Lightroom 4.2, and I was curious if anyone had suggestions for books or websites or videos or other resources that they've found useful in helping them to learn about Lightroom. I already ordered a book (The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Book: The Complete Guide for Photographers, by Martin Evening, published by Adobe Press), but I wonder if you have other suggestions.

Thanks, in advance, to all who take the time to respond.

I've learned a lot from the Luminous Landscape video tutorials. I find them quite useful.

When I 1st started using Lightroom 2, I found that the free Adobe's lightroom-training-videos by Julianne Kost was enough for me to be able to accomplish about 80% of what I what to do with my photos.

http://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/lightroom-training-videos

The only other book that I have specifically for Lightroom was 'Photoshop Lightroom for Digital Photographers Only' by Rob Sheppard. It's not a detail step-by-step type book, but for me that's what I like.
Enjoy!

This photographer has many LR related video clips of 5-10 minutes amongst his stuff. A lot of his tips relate to LR3 but for most of the stuff he covers the version doesn't matter.

The M. Evening book is very detailed and has a good order of presentation. Rather long with 681 pages but full of information. Adobe has a Learn Lightroom 4 tv series which is very helpful and other avenues are available as Brian and others have mentioned. Good luck.

Hi Keith,

I'm currently reading Jeff Schewe's The Digital Negative. It is not exclusively a Lightroom book because he also covers Adobe ACR and Photoshop but if you want to really get into the mechanics of LR, its process pipline, and how and why it is designed the way it is, this book is a treasure. I also really like Jeff's writing style - it's a no nonsense brand of informative delivery with just enough sidebars, tips, and trivia to keep you interested.

My two references are Martin Evenings Lightroom 4 book and Victoria Bamptons the Missing FAQ for Lightroom 4 book. I also subscribed to Linda.com for a month and got lots of great video training on Lightroom.

As Glenn mentioned above, Victoria Bampton is well known for her LR expertise.


Matt Kloskowski often has LR tips on his blog..
http://www.mattk.com/

Scott Kelby's books helped me learn Photoshop and after a quick search I see that he has LR books as well..
http://kelbytraining.com/store/products/lightroom/


Lynda.com is an online software learning website. You can pay for one month (I think it is $25)to watch unlimited videos including LR and Photoshop.

Have fun!

Brian
