DEK Photography

I’m happy to announce that my new book, Lightroom® CC Made Easy is now available on amazon.com and directly from the publisher through a link on my website, www.dekphotography.com.  Of the six Lightroom® books I’ve authored, this is by far the most complete and detailed one.  Every panel of all seven Lightroom® modules are discussed along with a suggested workflow for each module.  It not only contains the simple neat Lightroom® tricks I’ve been posting on Facebook®, but goes far beyond the usual basics of using Lightroom®.  It was written as a “how to” book made to sit by the computer with the photographer and guide them step by step through all the procedures and techniques in Lightroom® using screen shots and bullet points.  As the name implies, I’ve tried to make it easy and have paid particular attention to the complaints I’ve often heard about Lightroom®.  That means I’ve spent a lot of time on importing, organizing and finding images in the Library module and also on how to reorganize the catalog.  The Develop module has many suggestions for bringing out the best a RAW image has to offer and includes some detailed procedures and techniques never before published in a Lightroom® book or video tutorial.  I hope it will make your Lightroom® use easier and more fun.
