Mastering Lightroom: Book Four – The Photos is written for everybody who wants to learn how to create beautiful photos in Lightroom. It builds on the lessons learnt in my earlier ebooks and shows you how to use some of Lightroom’s more advanced features to process your images. It contains ten Case Studies, with a detailed explanation of how I processed each one from start to finish. But just as importantly it also explains why, exploring my thought processes from the time I took the photo (yes, composition and light are just as important as post-processing) through to the finished image.

For me, the Raw file is merely a starting point, and open to multiple interpretations. Each Case Study is accompanied by alternative versions, to show you how there is more than one way of doing things in Lightroom. Along the way I look at using plug-ins and Develop Presets to extend Lightroom’s capabilities. By the time you finish this ebook you’ll come to appreciate Lightroom for the powerful yet simple-to-use application it is, and be ready to move up to the next level in your own processing.
