Amazing Lightroom Book
David DuChemin is one of the great writers that writes about our craft rather than the tools of our craft. Now he has done it again with Vision & Voice: Refining Your Vision in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. This amazing book talks about software not in terms of technical function, but in how to use it as an artist bringing about an image. In my opinion, this is the answer to a technical guide for the artistic mind. It has loads of tutorials that you can follow along after you download the original raw files for free. Here it is on Amazon:
