Hello everyone, 

I am trying to connect my Nikkon D5000 to my Lightroom, the so called tethering. I want to see the image on my screen instead of the camera, and work with that image from my laptop. I want to learn everything there is to food styling and I honestly thought this camera was compatible with LR. 
Can someone assist me on how to tether my camera, or let me know what other tools are out there available for this?

 

Regards,

That model IS supported for tethered shooting. If you are asking for live view prior to taking the image, I don't believe that option is available for any DSLR. The image only appears in LrC after the image has been taken.

While some of the info relates to macOS please see the screen capture.

In addition, there are two versions of Lightroom Apps for your computer Lightroom Classic (current version) 9.3 and Lightroom (current version) 3.3.Indicat what you are using.

Answers given above.

 

But if you do want Live-View, then the only option is to use independent software-

http://digicamcontrol.com/

And use 'Auto-Import' to automatically add the photos to the Lr Catalog. (NOT with 'Tethering' to Lr.)
