Following on from the the success of Carlton Books' Complete Photography Manual
and the Digital Photography Manual
, this new title, Creative Digital Photography
, focuses on the techniques of the digital equivalent of the darkroom, concentrating on image editing and manipulation, to provide a complete resource aimed at all levels of expertise.
Highly practical with results-orientated approach Creative Digital Photography looks at image creation from both a photographic and artistic viewpoint. The creation of images is examined holistically; all the components of the process, including the original image, the software tools and the user's skill and creativity are examined and seen to contribute to the end result.
taking a generic approach to software packages wherever possible, the low emphasis on individual software packages will preventCreative Digital Photography from dating quickly, allowing it to retain credibility as new software is developed. With concise, easy to follow text from an established expert in the field, this is a comprehensive and inspiring guide to this exciting area of digital photography.
Peter Cope has worked with digital imaging for many years and spends much of his time testing new cameras and software and reports on both for many major magazines. He is author of The Digital Photographer's Pocket Encyclopedia and Secrets of the Digital Darkroom. He enjoys envangelising about all things digital.
