Best book Of two I've used
on March 18, 2011
I've used two tutorial books for Lightroom 3 - this one and the one by Scott Kelby. I find the classroom in a book much easier to use in that it's clearer and far more concise in content and presentation. Kelby's book is full of bad humor that I find rather charming but he bounces all over the place with alternative ways of doing things. He'll explain a process then then jump into several other ways of doing it that I find very confusing. Classroom in a book sticks to the fundamentals and doesn't go into 'oh by the way, here are four other ways of doing this'. My goal is to work on my pictures not become a geek of all things Lightroom. That said there are times when I've referred to Kelby's book when Classroom presents a process that appears cumbersome (rarely happens) to find a different avenue.
In a nutshell Classroom in a Book is clear, concise, easy to follow and has good examples of how everything works laid out in a logical working process. I'm glad I bought it.
