Everything here we have read and can heartily recommend.
Published in 2015, this is the ultimate Lightroom user’s book in my opinion. If you only buy one Lightroom book, this is it. Read my short review here.
Even though this book is from 2010 (An update to the first edition of 2006) this is the most thorough technical book I’ve ever read on the subject. There are lots of Photoshop techniques and a small section on Lightroom (a little dated, but all the tutorials still work very well).
This 2014 book is a labor of love and took Ashe many years to write. Because this book is about printing, I recommend purchasing it as a printed book (it’s heavy!) and not a Kindle book if possible. Read my review here.
The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography – 1st Edition by Glenn Randall.
Published in 2015 by a native Colorado photographer, this how-to book does an excellent job of explaining what it takes to make great landscape photos. This book will be inspirational for any aspiring landscape shooter. Read my review here.
The Professional Photographer’s Legal Handbook – 1st First Edition by Nancy E. Wolff.
I ran into some issues regarding my copyrights in 2015 and this helped me to clear up the gray areas and settle the matter. From Elvis Presley to Marilyn Monroe to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and How to Enforce Copyright on the Internet, this is as much an interesting read as it is a legal one. Read my review this here.
No matter how much I use Lightroom, there’s always something new to learn and I found LIGHTROOM 6/CC UNMASKED by Piet Van den Eynde to be the most readable and understandable Lightroom CC manual I’ve read. Read my review of Lightroom 6/CC Unmasked here.
