Here’s what you’ll get with The Book Lover:

Stunning Digital Photography

The top-rated and best-selling photography photography book of 2012-2019, and the first ever Gold Honoree of the Benjamin Franklin Digital Award, gives you innovations no other book offers:

  • Free video training. 20+ HOURS of video training integrated into the book’s content (requires Internet access). Travel around the world with Tony and Chelsea as they teach you hands-on. Appendix A lists the videos so you can use the book like an inexpensive video course.
  • Lifetime updates. This book is regularly updated with new content (including additional videos) that existing owners receive for free. Updates are added based on reader feedback and questions, as well as changing photography trends and new camera equipment. This is the last photography book you’ll ever need.
  • Hands-on practices. Complete the practices at the end of every chapter to get the real world experience you need.
  • 500+ high resolution, original pictures. Detailed example pictures taken by the author in fifteen countries demonstrate both good and bad technique. Many pictures include links to the full-size image so you can zoom in to see every pixel. Most photography books use stock photography, which means the author didn’t even take them. If an author can’t take his own pictures, how can he teach you?

The ebook version of Stunning Digital Photography, which you can read on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. You’ll be able to instantly reference the book when you’re out shooting! The ebook includes LIFETIME updates, so it’s never outdated! We provide PDF, .ePub, .mobi, and .iBooks formats, so you can read it on ANY device. You can also read it online using your web browser by accessing the SDP Book menu at this site.

Lightroom Video Book

Lightroom 6/CC

NOTE: The Lightroom CC (2017) ebook and paperback are pre-orders and will ship in 2018 (depending on Adobe’s development schedule).

Combining the benefits of video training and book learning, Tony Northrup’s Lightroom Video Book gives you over 12 hours of video (in the Lightroom 5 version) and 14 hours of video (in the Lightroom 6 & CC versions) and 200 pages of written content. Buy this bundle, and you’ll get access to BOTH the Lightroom 5 and Lightroom 6/CC video ebooks. When you can set aside the time, start the videos on a smartphone, tablet, or PC, and work alongside Tony & Chelsea in Lightroom. When you’d rather learn away from your PC, or you just want to quickly look something up, search the eBook or flip through the paperback book to find the information you need. Similar video training costs well over $120 or more, or worse, requires you to pay a monthly membership fee that might cost you thousands. Similar books cost over twice this amount. Tony covers every aspect of Lightroom in-depth, but structures his teaching so that both beginner and advanced photographers can learn as efficiently as possible. If you just want a quick start, you can simply watch the first video or read the first chapter and you’ll be organizing and editing your pictures in less than an hour. If you want to know more about a specific feature, switch to that video or flip to that chapter in the ebook. If you want to know everything about Lightroom, watch the videos and read the book from start-to-finish. Posted Image
