Combining the benefits of video training and book learning, Tony Northrup's Lightroom 5 Video Book gives you over 12 hours of video and 250 pages of written content. When you can set aside the time, start the videos on a smartphone, tablet, or PC, and work alongside Tony & Chelsea in Lightroom. When you'd rather learn away from your PC, or you just want to quickly look something up, search the eBook or flip through the paperback book to find the information you need.
Similar video training costs well over $120 or more, or worse, requires you to pay a monthly membership fee that might cost you thousands. Similar books cost over twice this amount.
You also get over 150 Lightroom presets, which usually cost more than $100, and access to our private Lightroom group on Facebook so you can ask questions and get feedback.
Tony covers every aspect of Lightroom in-depth, but structures his teaching so that both beginner and advanced photographers can learn as efficiently as possible. If you just want a quick start, you can simply watch the first video or read the first chapter and you'll be organizing and editing your pictures in less than an hour. If you want to know more about a specific feature, switch to that video or flip to that chapter in the ebook. If you want to know everything about Lightroom, watch the videos and read the book from start-to-finish.
As excellent as ....
I have great respect to Mr. Northrop as a one of the greatest contemporary photographs. This book will be great as reference point to refresh your memory as Lightroom can be very tedious. But I also prefer an app to a book when I begin learning a thing. The book has a good videos connection to almost every subject but it remains a book that read like a book, meaning it lacks the correct form of interaction an app will give. So if you are a beginner start with an app and when you are comfortable with Lightroom download this book as a memory refreshing and an advance learning tool.
It’s helping me become a better photographer
I finally decided to take control of my numerous iPhoto and Aperture photo libraries. The Library training section of Tony’s Lightroom 5 Training for Photographers gave me the info I needed to migrate my photos and get them organized. Lightroom has all the tools to import the photos and videos from both of these discontinued Apple apps. Not only that, it helps you to better organize your photos (the file management tools are just fantastic). I’ve learned Importing and Exporting and am now working on learning the Develop module.
I’m becoming a better photographer and my ~20,000 photo library is better organized and much more usable than ever. Tony, thank you for your excellent books and videos, Between this book and "Stunning Digital Photography” (also by Tony Northrup), I’m improving my skill and love for this art every day.
Great use of video with text to back it up. Highly recommended.
