Overview

For over 150 years, the photographic process remained virtually unchanged-but now, the digital revolution has come. Are you up to date...or behind the times? Magnificent examples from digital photographers will help you understand how the new electronic media work and how to grasp all their creative possibilities. The key: the cycle of shoot, enhance, and share. Shooting involves everything about how the image is captured, from camera, lenses, and equipment to scanning and composition. Enhance that picture by altering its brightness and contrast, enriching the color, and improving its clarity and depth. Retouch, tone, and colorize monochrome images, and use layered montage techniques to add extra interest. Try special effects that make photos look like watercolors or turn them into panoramas. Once you've got that perfect picture, share it with others: print it, add text, put it on the net. You'll find everything a beginner needs to become knowledgeable and inspired!
