What’s Next for Books?
Following the recent launch of “Essential Affinity Photo 2”, which is now available in eBook and print formats, I’ve been hard at work updating “Mastering Selections & Masks in Lightroom CC”. The update is to cover the changes and new features introduced by Adobe in Lightroom 12.
I expect the updated book to be available by mid-February. I will be giving a free copy to anyone who purchased the previous version from my website on or after the 18 October 2022. That was when Adobe release Lightroom 12. This offer is only available for purchases made directly on the Lenscraft website and I will be contacting everyone who qualifies directly.
You may also have detected a theme; in that I’m working to update my older books as a priority. This will continue through 2023, although I do have several ideas for new books. I will keep you informed of developments in the newsletter and announce new releases by email.
Planned Affinity Photo Course
Last month, I asked for feedback on the idea of an Affinity Photo course for landscape photo editing. Thank you for the many emails, and I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to reply to everyone. There were just too many.
In summary, there appears to be good support for a course like this, so I’ve started work. My idea is to produce a series of monthly “mini courses” of up to an hour in length. Each will focus on an aspect of landscape photo editing and will build on the previous courses in the series. Over time the courses will build into a “super course” for landscape photographers editing with Affinity Photo.
The courses will take a practical approach rather than try to teach individual features. They will be based on full editing examples for which the sample images will be provided. I also intend to price the courses low and make it possible for people to start, stop and restart the series depending how busy they are.
That’s an outline of my early plans and I have already identified six possible areas for the monthly courses. I don’t yet have any dates for release, but it will probably be 6 months away. If you are a landscape photographer using Affinity Photo, I hope that this appeals to you.
Until next month, enjoy your photography.
