    Since this is, let’s say the foundation, this would truly be the best of the videos to release early. It’s kind of like trying to shot with a new camera and not putting cards or a battery in it first :{)))

    I’m new to the SLR Lounge, but it looks like I’ll be purchasing the Lightroom Workshop collection soon! Lightroom has so many capabilities its a shame to not learn and use them!

    I own the SLR Lounge Lightroom v5 Workshop Collection of DVD’s and it is fantastic. It took my Lightroom abilities up several levels, so much so that I’m now the local “go-to” guy for questions from friends. Highly recommended!
