Once you've captured those shots, John takes you step-by-step through an effective workflow in Lightroom to organize your images and develop your own personal style.

Whether you're a beginning or intermediate digital photographer, this guide helps you understand the basics and bring your own unique artistic expression to any situation, including landscape, cityscape, portrait, and food shots.
