How Photography Can Make You a Better Painter by Michael Weymouth

A photographer/designer encourages painters to use their digital cameras as part of their painting process. The book illustrates how the camera and the human eye are alike and yet different. Rather than a deep dive into camera functionality, the author points to the several functions that are important to a painter. White balance and its relationship to painting is also discussed. The book is amply illustrated with examples of the author's paintings and the photos from which they were painted.

About the Author

Michael Weymouth (Hingham, MA) began his career as an illustrator but soon moved into graphic design to be on the front end of the creative process, founding Weymouth Design (with offices in Boston and San
Francisco) in the early 1970s. He became as well-known for his photography as for his firm's award-winning creative design. Now semi-retired, he devotes much of his time to painting in oils and watercolors, using his digital camera to enable his painting.
