It's a lot more difficult (and often impossible) to correct over-exposure than under-exposure.

EDIT - Adding a photo so I'm actually contributing to the thread.

When I bought Lightroom I thought it was a Photoshop Lite and didn't realize that it is a preprocessor for Photoshop. I think I need a good intro book to Lightroom. Remember back in the day when software came with a manual? An actual book? I think for the prices they charge for software that they should be able to include a book..

"Sandstorms inflict damage of about $540 million per year, and losses of crops and forests due to acid rain amount to about $730 million per year. More serious are the $6 billion costs of the "green wall" of trees being built to shield Beijing against sand and dust, and the $7 billion per year of losses created by pest species. We enter the zone of impressive numbers when we consider the onetime cost of the 1996 floods ($27 billion, but still cheaper than the 1998 floods), the annual direct losses due to desertification ($42 billion), and the annual losses due to water and air pollution ($54 billion). The combination of the latter two items alone costs China the equivalent of 14% of its GDP each year." - Jared Diamond, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

Thanks!

I hear you there. It's one thing with photoshop, considering how many online tutorials there are out there. Lightroom is a new product though and is still in early adoption so it's more difficult to find help. I simply spend time playing with each tool until I became comfortable with it and went from there.

I do know some people who use Lightroom alone and don't believe in post processing. Since it's mainly a RAW tool it can be seen as simply an extension of the tools in your camera.

There's probably a pdf file of the manual on the disk it came with, lots of companies are doing this now... Now I remember when photoshop came with a video tutorial.

It probably does but why should I have to print it out?

I agree, I just read them on the computer instead of printing. What about a couple of years ago when Dell stopped sending O/S disks when you bought a new comp... That was real BS.

I prefer to have the manual in a physical form so I can thumb through it and not have to switch between windows. OK, I'm done threadjacking.

I got so close to this little guy I could have scooped him up. At 200mm I had to retreat a little to get him in the frame.
