On this episode of Fireground Action Photography we're joined by our good friends Timothy Tonge, Ted Pendergast and Rick Nohl. We convene for a discussion on Adobe Lightroom, a wonderful and user-friendly photo management and editing program that will improve any photographer's workflow. Adobe Lightroom 3 in currently in beta so we hope to speak more on that when we return to the topic in a month or two. We go under the hood in this series and get kinda techie. Don't let this scare away the new user! It's a wonderful program (which we're all still learning to use). We all use and recommend a great reference book called "Lightroom 2 for Digital Photographers" by Scott Kelby. Scott is deeply involved with the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) and his workshops are also worth checking out. Scott Bourne also discusses the topic frequently on his Photofocus website. Check out iTunes or your favorite podcatcher for some useful and informative audio and video podcasts on Lightroom. Some recommended podcasts are "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom", "Lightroom for Digital Photographers", "Welcome to Lightroom "2 and "Photoshop Killer Tips".
Join our "Fireground" Flickr community, upload your images to the comment/critique forum and join in any of the ongoing conversations. Use the forum to post your own Lightroom-related comments or questions and we'll be sure to address them on Part 2 of our Lightroom Roundtable series.

We dedicate this episode of Fireground Action Photography to our good friend, and friend of fire photographers everywhere, Jim Perry. Jim tragically lost his life in a traffic collision in Nevada on December 3rd. Jim was a retired LAFD Captain who edited the award-winning "Los Angeles Firefighter" newspaper for 40 years as well as their well known magazine "The Fireman's Grapevine". Aside from Jim's numerous accomplishments, he was always a great supporter of fire photographers and was a mentor to many. Jim, you will be missed. Rest in peace Brother. For more on Jim Perry visit his story on the LAFD blog.
