Several times a year I teach a one-dayworkshop on optimizing images usingLightroom at the local art league, and in doing so I’m often asked for a good book recommendation for someone learnning Lightroom. As I’ve mentioned in my previous review,my usual recommendation has been Martin Evening’s bookThe Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book: The Complete Guide for Photographers. In the process of keeping my eyes open for new resources, I recently purchased and watched“Where the #%*! are My Pictures?”, a three-hour video series by Michael Reichmann and Seth Resnick which focuses on the the file-handling, digital asset management (roughly speaking, the Library module) aspects of Lightroom. I’ll be adding this to my list of top recommendations for Lightroom resources, I think it’s particularly appropriate for folks who have a basic familiarity with Lightroom but are ready to take their understanding up a notch and really make their workflow sing.
The question of “Where are my images?” that creeps up on most photographers as they continue to work over years. Three years ago I was convinced that that this “digital asset management” thing was quite possibly overkill for me, after all, I knew most of my images and I had everything organized in directories by year and location.
