Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
By default, digital cameras heavily process their “raw” sensor data in order to deliver your image. With that data, however, you can gain far greater control over your images and repair problems you couldn’t fix in JPEG or TIFF. “Raw” has a reputation for being difficult -- and it was, until Ben Long demystified it. Using Long’s new book, even relatively inexperienced photographers can master Adobe’s Camera Raw toolset -- and experienced photographers will have a field day.

Long explains how your camera makes raw files, illuminates the basic color theory you’ll need, and thoroughly familiarizes you with Adobe Camera Raw’s interface and workflow. Then, you’ll discover the true power of "raw”: in tweaking white balance, fixing overexposures, making localized corrections, and beyond. You’ll even walk through creating 32-bit high-dynamic range images: photos that look almost impossibly real. Bill Camarda, from the January 2006 Read Only
