Digital photography has come of age: not only are sales of digital cameras overtaking conventional cameras both in unit sales and value, but amateur photographers can now obtain image quality to match that of the professionals. Advanced Digital Photography tells readers how to advance their digital photography, and helps increase their skills, success rate, and enjoyment. This book brings together authoritative technical background with secrets from power users and numerous picture-making ideas all designed to take the reader's digital photography several steps further. By showing numerous sets of before and after images, by showing the chosen shot as well as discarded options, this book illustrates the processes that lead to advanced digital photography. Key effects such as duotone modes, unsharp masking, Curves manipulation, and channel mixing are discussed in depth but in clear and simple language. Central topics such as colour management, resolution, and scanning are also treated in depth with five workshops and step-by-step guides to enable the reader to lay a superb foundation for improving their digital photography. By bringing together a wealth of material in a single volume, Advanced Digital Photography is a must-have book for the modern photographer.
