Close-up Photography: The Definitive Guide for Serious Digital Photographers

I've always liked Michael Freeman books and this one looks like no exception. His style is very thorough and his illustrations are always excellent. Here you get a mix of lighting diagrams and fantastic photographs. It's a book brimming with ideas for close up subjects, composition and light and, as the strap line suggests, I'd agree it's the "definitive guide for serious digital photographers".

Creative Photoshop Lighting Techniques

What an interesting concept for a book. We have loads of books on subject areas of photography and loads or general Photoshop books on retouching, but one on using the program for just a single aspect of photography, such as lighting is a great approach and the book's cover works well to sell this concept. The presentation throughout is clean and the style of writing is friendly and accessible. At first glance I was very impressed, but then when going a bit deeper some of the effects, while ex...

Digital Photographer's Guide to Photoshop Elements

I worked with Barry when I launched Digital PhotoFX back in 1997. At the time he was one of the leading digital imaging experts - these days we have loads of experts so the question is... will Barry still be ahead of the game? For a start he's chosen to use Photoshop Elements which is much more affordable than Photoshop so that's a welcome move. The book has the familiar clean Ilex design and the photos are from Barry's extensive collection. These are great examples to work with and make the bo...
