Book Depository had an extra 10% off recently and I was in need of a new manual for Lightroom 4. This time round I wanted a more indepth and more technical book, something to help me get more out of the software and to learn all the new features to the best advantage.
So I took a chance on the Lightroom Queen and ordered her new LR4 book – LR4 the Missing FAQ I haven’t tried her books before, but I read her blog now and then.
That was an easily justifiable book, I had paid for the software, so important I get to use it properly, isn’t that right 🙂
The next two books are a bit of an indulgence, but I am a fan of good books to learn from and one is an author I bought his second book a few months ago and enjoyed it. I hunted out his first one and it was quite well reviewed, and its a topic a photographer cannot know too much about. So I also bought The Betterphoto Guide to Exposure by Sean Arbabi
The last book I bought was a complete indulgence, I stumbled across a link in my Twitter feed and it was also very well reviewed. The truth is I totally fell for the potential for otter photos, I must confess. I have a passion for otters and hope one day to get the chance to shoot them in the wild, this book is the closest I will come until then 🙂
They are due to arrive over the next couple of weeks, so I better get my blogging fingers going and write up some reviews. Stay tuned!
