As regular readers will remember, we featured Peter Krogh’s book, The Dam Book – Digital Asset Management for Photographers, as one of our books of the month. Peter’s DAM book is the “gold standard” for explaining how to organize and protect you photos.
Just yesterday I discovered that Peter is now publishing his own work at the DAM Bookshop. I purchased a copy of his new Multimedia e-book, Organizing Your Photos with Lightroom 5 and am very impressed. I’m very interested in the Multimedia approach he uses since this is what I’ve done with my e-book Photography For Real Estate. Peter has gone much farther with multimedia than I did, he has 7 hours of video that go with the book. This is a great multimedia book for both beginning photographers and experienced professionals. For those that haven’t figured it out already, organizing your photos is a major challenge and the sooner you get it under control the easier the job will be. Peter’s approach is very systematic!
I think the big benefit of multimedia books like Peter’s is that they are more like a class. Some people learn better from the audio/visual approach while others learn better with a text book approach. Multimedia provides everything. Peter has inspired me to take my books farther in this direction.
