Digital Photos from Concept to Completion [With DVD ROM] (Learn by Video)by Tim Grey
Synopses & Reviews
This innovative product uses interactive video to walk through the process of creating beautiful photos with a variety of subjects - including landscapes, macro photos, panoramas, HDR, and more. The lessons take the viewer along as instructor Tim Grey starts with the subject and an idea, evaluates shooting conditions and plans his shot, configures his camera and captures the image, and then optimizes the image with software for a polished final result. Viewers will gain a better sense of how to think about images, how to approach their capture and optimization, and how to achieve a distinctive photographic vision. Featuring a blend of on-location live footage and software-based instruction, this title should change the way viewers take their photos.
Well-known photographer and trainer Tim Grey presents up to 3 hours of high-quality HD video, complete with lesson files, assessment quizzes, and review materials. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review. The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to work alongside the video training. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disc so viewers can practice what they've learned, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge.
The DVD-ROM is bundled with a printed booklet that provides supplemental material to enhance the video training.
