Burlington, MA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 01, 2011
Focal Press, the global leader in media technology publishing, is proud to announce the publication of The Photoshop Darkroom 2: Creative Digital Transformations by the award-winning photography and design team Harold and Phyllis Davis.
Picking up where their best-selling first book left off, The Photoshop Darkroom 2 will show digital artists and designers everything they need to know to take their digital imaging skills to the next level:
- Useful case studies break information down into condensed, real-world examples which are easy to follow and put into practice immediately
- Images are available for free on focalpress.com
- Compatible with any version of Photoshop
Great photographers know that the best images begin well before the shutter clicks, and certainly well before Photoshop boots up. Harold takes a step back, and shares his helpful tips for capturing the most compelling images possible by keeping in mind what type of post-processing photographers and designers do before they start shooting.
Professionals and amateurs will also find complete coverage of important topics such as compositing, working with layers, and HDR. Those who bought the first volume have been enthusiastic:
"The sample photos are beautiful and the end results are inspirational. This could easily be a coffee table book if it wasn't so darn helpful."
"The layout is superb, with reminders, hints, and references to earlier pages to help you along the way. I'll be using this as a reference for years to come."
Packed with tons of eye-popping images which have won Harold national acclaim, this is a fantastic resource for photographers who want to think outside the box and create truly stunning artwork.
