Synopses & Reviews
Digital photography has opened up imagemaking to a whole new audience, encompassing everyone from traditional photographers to budding computer enthusiasts. Now there's an indispensable, one-stop manual that shows newcomers how to master digital photography and its entire range of creative possibilities!
Covering more than 50 separate topics, Creative Digital Photography first demonstrates simple manipulations such as removing minor flaws or tidying up a fussy background. Readers then progress step by step into more complicated techniques like filter effects, layering, and montages combining elements from a variety of sources into a new, original work of art.
The most important message throughout Creative Digital Photography, however, is that computer wizardry is simply a means to an end: The emphasis here is to create memorable images rather than concentrate on digital gimmickry. Beautifully illustrated with over 150 full-color photos and written with a minimum of jargon, this is an inspiring and informative guide for anyone interested in creative imagemaking.
