    Highly recommend

    This is the first book by this photo author I have read. I am going to buy more of his books on photographic topics. You need to have a familiarity with Photoshop and then his explanation on how to use the few tools he uses and why are terrific. You can really lean how to shoot the picture and how to process it in Photoshop to take it from just a picture to a work of art. This author writes for the photographer with basic manual mode camera skills and the beginning Photoshop user (must have some familiarity of Photoshop).
