Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Photoshop plus your digital camera: Suddenly you can shoot to your heart’s content, get instant feedback, then manipulate your images in a virtually infinite number of ways. The only problem: too many choices, too much to know. How do you wade into this incredible cornucopia and make it yours? With How to Wow: Photoshop for Photography.

You couldn’t ask for more knowledgeable authors, or authors more capable of sharing their knowledge. (You know Jack Davis as the author of Photoshop Wow! series titles such as The Photoshop 7 Wow! Book; Ben Willmore wrote the masterful Adobe Photoshop CS Studio Techniques.)

Here, Davis and Willmore start with workflow, including Photoshop presets that make digital photographic work easier and more productive. (Those presets are on CD, with project files, custom tools, swatches, shapes, styles, patterns, actions, and other goodies.)

Then, it’s on to meat-and-potatoes digital darkroom work: extracting complex objects, dodging and burning, blend modes, neutralizing color casts, removing dust and scratches, and more. There’s a full chapter on fixing people: controlling blemishes and wrinkles, tweaking eyes and teeth, taking a few pounds off bellies and adding back lost hair. Next, the authors show how to precisely control your audience’s experience, via glows, high pass, gradients, and other techniques.

A full chapter on colors and tone covers everything from hand coloring to 1850s-vintage Sabatier effects. There are chapters on artistic effects and overlays, as well as on combining/collaging. Use How to Wow as a cookbook, or better yet, use it as a launch pad for your own creativity. Bill Camarda
