I finally decided to go with Lightroom for organizing and processing my photos, and now Im look for some good info to guide me on processing. If anyone has any good book suggestions, particularly any books that use Lightroom 3, I would appreciate your advice.

Thanks

I don't know any books off hand.. but, this is a pretty good resource to get you started until someone posts up something better.


AdobeTV

edit: keep in mind the last good books I read on exposure (negative or print) were The Camera, The Negative and The Print.. other than textbooks in college.. which really reiterated much of the same info, in a much blander way.

Haven't read it but seen good reviews for After the Shoot for Adobe PSE.

Amazon.com: Photoshop Elements 8 After the Shoot (9780470565094): Mark Fitzgerald: Books

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

The Scott Kelly book looks pretty decent and has plenty of good reviews. I think I'll check that one out.

In the meantime abodeTV and Lightroom tutorials look pretty good for a free source also.

Thanks all!

Try Martin Evenings books. I prefer his style to Scott Kelby's. I'd also give a +1 to the Luminous Landscape video's

The problem I find with books is that they're expensive and get outdated quickly... I would always suggest tutorials online before going for a book!

Well I'm more looking for something with the basics that can show me exactly where to go in LR3 at the same time. As I get better I'll look to online tutorials and the photography community in general for more advanced info.
