Theres also in-depth instruction on working with digital in-camera filters such as monochrome and sepia, as well as filters in image processing software (like Photoshop and plug-ins) to sharpen, distort, or create brush-stroke effects.
This is the definitive guide that photographers have been waiting for!
Book News Annotation:
After an informative chapter exploring the photographic qualities of light, Meehan, a professional photographer who has previously written twenty five books on photographic technique, covers the wide range of options available for controlling light and color. While most improvements can often be handled after taking the photograph, he explores how utilization of polarizers and natural density filters can save processing time and result in an improved image file. The book contains color photographs on almost every page illustrating the use of light filters both during photography and later while using software such as PhotoKit, Color Mechanic Pro, iCorrect, Applied Science Fiction, Tiffen Dfx, U Point Technology, and Viveza.
