Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This tutorial takes photographers beyond the quick tips and gimmicky effects of many digital photography books. Author Katrin Eismann — an internationally acclaimed artist, bestselling author, and gifted educator — offers high-profile work, including her own, as examples for teaching photographers how to use the digital medium to create, edit, and output images that reflect their true vision.

Co-authored by photographer and teacher Sean Duggan, The Creative Digital Darkroom translates skills, concepts, and nomenclature of the traditional darkroom into digital solutions for photographers who sense that, despite the newness of the technologies at hand, there remains a timeless method for learning and practicing photography the right way. This is not a Photoshop book per se, but it does focus on the photographic aspects of Photoshop, something other books claim to do but rarely have the discipline to accomplish. The Creative Digital Darkroom includes:

  • Four sections that cover the black & white darkroom, the color darkroom, creative techniques, and production essentials
  • Chapters that begin with a thorough foundation followed by numerous tutorial examples that apply the theory to real-world examples
  • Examples and a layout that enables readers to find, understand, and apply the featured techniques quickly and easily
  • The authors are both renowned photographers and Photoshop experts
Clearly, The Creative Digital Darkroom is not your typical digital photography "how to" book. It's ideal for intermediate and advanced photographers, artists, and educators looking for clear, concise, insightful, and inspiring information and techniques on how to make their photographs shine. The language, and techniques will immediately appeal to serious students and professionals, and the original tutorial images and high-profile work will make the book an important visual resource for educators and art appreciators.

Book News Annotation:

Appropriate for beginning students of digital photography or for individual amateurs, this textbook teaches photographic techniques with Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Lightroom, translating traditional darkroom concepts into digital formats. Photographers Eismann and Duggan (who is an Adobe Certified Photoshop Expert) progress the chapters sequentially, starting with introductory material, equipment lists, and basic concepts; ten following sections progress through more complicated aspects of digital development. A multitude of images are provided in both before and after states to demonstrate different effects taught in the text, and a complementary website lists errata and updated information.

Synopsis:

Eismann is world known for her talent as a Photoshop expert and photographer, but above all she's considered one of the best teachers her field has ever seen.

Synopsis:

The Creative Digital Darkroom is a bridge from the traditional darkroom to the digital darkroom, concentrating on the creative photographic aspects of working with Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Lightroom.

This book clearly explains the classic principles of the photographic darkroom, in terms that users of digital technology can happily thrive on. Packed with clear and concise examples of how software and hardware combine with the unique vision of the photographer in creating, editing, and outputting the images in your mind's eye. Co-authors, Katrin Eismann and Sean Duggan have teamed up to write a book that translates the analogy of traditional darkroom into contemporary digital solutions for photographers who sense that, despite the newness of the technologies at hand, there remains a timeless method for learning, practicing, and enjoying photography. Katrin Eismann is world-known for her talent as a Photoshop expert and photographer, but above all she's considered one of the best teachers her field has ever seen.
