Overview

Are you into photography not photomanipulation?
Frustrated that you are spending too much time in front of the screen and not enough behind the lens?
Bewildered by the multitude of advanced editing options available to you in Adobe Photoshop?

If any of the above is true then, whatever your Photoshop/photography level, you will benefit hugely from this terrific little book.

Unlike most of the photoshop guides available today, this no-nonsense, inspiring guide is aimed solely at photographers: those whose aim is to use the software to bring out the natural best in their photographs, rather than those who want to change them completely. Breath-taking photographer Corey Hilz wastes no time on the plethora of feature in Photoshop which, though impressive, are of no use to the 'natural' photographer. Corey instead takes you through a highly effective, professional workflow for bringing out the best in your photographs in Photoshop, from post-capture through to output, without spending hours in front of the screen. Ignoring high-end photomanipulation, he instead focusses on the vital aspects for photographers such as: correcting exposure, tone adjustments (including correct use of the tone curve), sharpening, monochrome conversion and lens correction. Additionally, Corey covers the workflow on either side: effective importing and tagging, and perfect output with minimal effort.

Everything about this beautiful little book is aimed at a visual audience. Pakced with stunning photographs to illustrate every tweak the author makes, this highly affordable and succinct reference guide focusses on the specific needs of the photographer and nothing else. There are hundreds of excellent comprehensive reference guides to photoshop out there, this is not one of those. It is, instead, a book that won't waste a second of your valuable shooting time. Buy into the Behind the Lens series and get right back where you belong and deserve to be: behind a lens.
