I’ll start off by getting one thing straight from the outset: I have been a long time Lightroom user and I really like this product!
Elegantly showcasing Lightroom’s power and the subtle enhancements it offers, the tutorials by Doug and Lorenza Sloss are a must-have resource. The Sloss’ insights will help you better manage your archive, master Lightroom’s many assets and enhance your efficiency and creative control. They will help you better manage your archive, master Lightroom’s many assets and enhance your efficiency and creative control.
My confidence in how to achieve improvements quickly and efficiently was growing as was my enthusiasm to do so, but I wasn’t even half way through yet! If I was one of those magazines that insist on rating everything, Lightroom for the Underwater Photographer would get 5 stars.
Quite frankly, the tutorials by Doug and Lorenza Sloss are absolutely invaluable to all underwater photographers. These tools not only improve the speed and efficiency of your workflow, but they are so well explained and demonstrated they can quite seriously help the amateur (and professional) photographers turn throwaways into award winners. I can’t speak highly enough about these products and I encourage everyone who enjoys photographing the underwater world to do yourself a favour and get a copy.
Doug’s narrative and on-screen progress provides easy-to-grasp tutorials of Lightroom’s powerful features. And, even though the program is called “Underwater Lightroom”, it’s valuable to a photographer regardless of specialty.
The tutorial videos made the transition a breeze. They are complete and easy to understand. Far and away the best instructional material that I have seen. I give Doug Sloss my highest recommendation.
