"I'm very impressed with the scope of the work in this book, the depth of the knowledge, and the clear instruction. Tim and Ellen do a fantastic job of guiding the reader through the technical maze of digital photography."

—Art Wolfe, world-renowned nature photographer, artist and author

To produce outstanding nature photographs, it's essential that you optimize your capture both in the field and in the darkroom. Written cover-to-cover to fit the unique needs of nature photographers, this practical book addresses the tools, techniques, and workflow ideally suited for natural subjects. You'll figure out how to plan for overlapping landscape exposures, sharpen animal eyes, edit sky and land separately, and repair delicate butterfly wings. You'll discover effective shooting tips. And above all, you'll learn what it takes to become a master in the digital darkroom using Photoshop.

In Photoshop for Nature Photographers, acclaimed photographers and instructors Ellen Anon and Tim Grey use real-world examples and inspiring images to bring a pro photo workshop experience right to your desktop. They also include valuable tips from esteemed nature photographers including John Shaw, Arthur Morris, Charles Glatzer, and Joe McDonald.

Inside, you'll learn the skills necessary to maximize the impact of your nature photographs, including how to:

  • Operate your camera to take the best possible captures in the field
  • Customize Photoshop for your particular needs
  • Use selection and brush tools to optimize your images
  • Process raw captures to retain maximum detail

  • Fine-tune color to match or improve on what nature offered

  • Prepare and sharpen your images for print or web
  • Improve your efficiency with actions and batch processing
  • Use new features in CS2 such as Mergeto HDR.
