New Book to Cover the Recently Announced Adobe® Lightroom® 2.0 Beta and More
Photoshop World 2008
TAMPA, Fla.--In concert with the launch of the Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 2.0 Beta at the Photoshop World Conference & Expo in Orlando on April 2, Scott Kelby – the world’s #1 bestselling computer and technology author – has announced the upcoming release of The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 Book for Digital Photographers, an update to his 2007 award-winning Lightroom book. The new book is currently available for pre-order on KelbyTraining.com and will be in bookstores this July.
Published by Peachpit Press, The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 Book for Digital Photographers introduces readers to the basics of Lightroom use, and then walks them through a brilliantly devised and super efficient digital photography workflow that dramatically improves productivity and allows photographers to spend less time processing photos and more time shooting them. Written in Scott’s trademark step-by-step, plain English style, this book allows photographers of any skill level to jump right in using Lightroom like a pro from the very start and sidestep a lot of frustration that typically haunts those unfamiliar with everything Lightroom has to offer.
What sets The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 Book for Digital Photographers apart from similar books on the market are the last two bonus chapters where Scott answers his most-asked Lightroom questions: "Exactly what order am I supposed to do things in, and where does Photoshop fit in?" Both chapters start with an on-location photo shoot, including full details on the equipment, camera settings, and lighting techniques. Readers then witness as he takes the photos from each shoot through the entire workflow process, to the final output of the 16"x20" prints. And, because he incorporates Photoshop seamlessly right into this workflow, you'll learn some of the latest Photoshop techniques for portrait and landscape photography as well.
The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 Book for Digital Photographers is currently available for pre-order on Kelbytraining.com. The book will be available in most bookstores, as well as on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com in July. The cover price for the new book is $39.99.
