Book Recommendation – Photoshop For Lightroom Users

Lightroom is such an awesome program for organizing and editing photos, but after you’ve worked with it for a while, you’ll hit a wall — a point where you realize that there are things you need to do that Lightroom just won’t do. It could be anything from retouching portraits to blending two or more images together to stitching panoramas to creating realistic HDR images, to adding beautiful type to your images — there are lots of incredible things you could do…if you only knew Photoshop.

But while Lightroom is pretty easy to learn, Photoshop is…well…it’s Photoshop. It’s this huge amazing Swiss-Army knife of a program with 100+ tools, and two dozen floating panels, and a ton of filters and compared to Lightroom it seems really complicated, but that’s only because…it is. But what if you only needed to learn about 10 or 20% of what Photoshop can do. What if you only needed to learn a few important techniques for photographers? That’s what my new book is all about. Teaching just the stuff Lightroom can’t do — and it’s one of the shortest books I’ve written (at 192 pages), so it’s short, sweet, right to the point, and even shows you things you might think you need to jump over to Photoshop for (but you can actually do right in Lightroom — I show you how).

Anyway, you can pre-order the print version right here from Amazon or Barnes & Noble, or theKindle version which is available right now!

The Art of Portrait Photography Video

Humans have been creating likenesses of each other for thousands of years, but with the introduction of photography, a new language developed for capturing the human image. Photography created opportunities for not just for biography and documentation, but also depth, empathy, and experimentation. Many portrait photographers today elevate their work from mere photo to art, communicating ideas and capturing the human subject with dignity, all while exploring the meaning and potential of portraiture.
