This is a refreshingly simple, friendly, and useful introduction to digital photography for anyone who cares about their photos. Joe Farace's philosophy: You don't need the world's latest, most expensive tools. Why work harder than you have to? And, above all, stay focused on what matters most: the image.
Farace, a longtime professional photographer, instructor, and Shutterbug columnist, has answered a lot of questions in his career. This book organizes and distills that knowledge. You'll find sensible guidance on picking computers and software, scanning images, and working with file formats (including and especially RAW). Whatever tools you're using, Farace shows how to take advantage of core techniques like layers, levels, and curves. You'll find thoughtful chapters on ink-jet printing, preparing images for the Web, and doing great work in monochrome, too. All of it down-to-earth, practical -- and a pleasure to look at.
