Peter also wrote another book on Multi-Catalog Workflow.

Peter's favourite lightroom tools:

  • Clarity to enhance local contrast
  • Shadows and highlights
  • fine tuning color

Peter emphasizes the importance of pre-visualizing what you can do during the post processing of an image.

Discussion on lighting different skin types in portrait photography. Time: 43:20 Peter refers to Dean Collins tip on lighting people with light skin using the shadows and lighting people with dark skin using the highlights.

Peter explains how smaller compact cameras help to interchange with a subject/model instead of "hiding behind a camera".

The book Organizing Your Photos with Lightroom 5 describes which tools to use and the order to use them in. And the differences between using keywords and collections.
