  1. Not Zen but Good Instruction I’ve long been a student, if not a practitioner, of Zen Buddhism, so the title of this book certainly caught my attention. I’m disappointed to say that, other than the title, there is nothing of Zen in this book. What is here is a good introduction to digital photography post-processing. 

  2. Like having a private tutor I suspect many photographers are like me: they largely taught themselves Lightroom or Photoshop, maybe taking a couple of workshops along the way. Now factor in the nearly-annual software updates, and a healthy dose of bad habits – and you get what I call the “swiss cheese” base of knowledge: We know enough to get our work done, but there are random holes in our competency, and a nagging suspicion that we’re doing some things the hard way. 

  3. Clear easy to read instructions for a better workflow. I really like the clean, simple style that the author writes in. I’ve been a Photoshop and Lightroom user since they were both introduced. I know that I’ve never used Lightroom especially to it’s full potential. I suspect there are a lot of people in a similar position out there who just need a simple, clear explanation of some of the more advanced and newer features in Lightroom. I’m not great at reading how-to books from front to back and this book makes it very easy to look up what you need…
