              ARE YOU READY FOR AN ELEMENTS BOOK THAT BREAKS ALL THE RULES? This book breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that s never been done before it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly how to do it. It s not a bunch of theory; it doesn t challenge you t...o come up with your own settings or figure things out on your own. Instead, it does something that virtually no other Elements book has ever done it tells you flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why. If you re looking for one of those tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Mask-filter books, this isn t it. You can grab any other Elements book on the shelf, because they all do that. Instead, this book gives you the inside tips and tricks of the trade for organizing, correcting, editing, sharp ening, retouching, and printing your photos like a pro. You ll be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective these techniques are once you know the secrets. LEARN HOW THE PROS DO IT Each year Scott trains thousands of digital photographers and, almost without exception, they have the same questions and face the same problems that s exactly what he covers in this book. You ll learn: . How to unlock the power of layers (you ll be amazed at how easy it is!) . How to use Camera Raw for processing not only RAW photos, but JPEGs, TIFFs, and PSDs too! (And you ll learn why so many pros like it best because it s faster and easier) . The sharpening techniques the pros really use (there s an entire chapter just on this!) . How to deal with common digital camera image problems, including brightening people in dark shadows and getting the best color possible . The most requested photographic special effects, and much more! THE BOOK S SECRET WEAPON Although Elements 15 offers some digital photography features that Photoshop CC doesn t offer, there are plenty of features that Photoshop CC has that Elements 15 doesn t (like channels, HDR, etc.). But in this book, you ll learn some slick work arounds, c

              Photographically Speaking: A Deeper Look at Creating Stronger Images

              Photographically Speaking: A Deeper Look at Creating Stronger Images (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Duchemin, David

              Photographically Speaking is a practical primer on visual language. The overarching question at the heart of this book is, What makes a good photograph? Why is this important? Because once a photographer understands what makes a good photograph--once he or she learns the visual l...anguage--then that photographer is well on their way to being able to speak that language, creating stronger images that communicate and connect their intention with the viewer. The discussion about visual language is profoundly pragmatic and useful, but for too long the books that discuss it have been considered academic, esoteric, and difficult. Here, duChemin writes in an approachable, comfortable, and inspiring way, translating this seemingly difficult conversation into something that the bulk of photographers can understand and then actually put to use in order to make good photographs. The first part of the book puts this entire conversation in context, then the second part digs in to discuss the elements of visual language--from lines and shapes to color, depth of field, composition, and exposure--and its devices. The third part brings it all together in a discussion of 20 images, and the elements and decisions that went into their creation, all written with the understanding that if photographers begin to understand photographs more consciously, they will be better equipped to use their gear and techniques in the intentional creation of more compelling photographs.

              Picture Perfect Posing: Practicing the Art of Posing for Photographers and Models

              Picture Perfect Posing: Practicing the Art of Posing for Photographers and Models (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              • To Order

              Photographer, author, and educator Roberto Valenzuela has a proven track record for teaching and explaining difficult concepts to photographers of all skill levels. His remarkable ability to break down complicated ideas into understandable, approachable elements that photographer...s can truly grasp-and then use their newfound knowledge to improve their photography-made his first book, Picture Perfect Practice, a breakout success. In Picture Perfect Posing, Roberto takes on the art of posing. For many photographers, after learning to compose an image and even light it properly, a portrait can still easily be a failure if the pose is not natural, elegant, and serving the needs of both the subject and the photographer. Instead of just showing page after page of poses-like most posing books on the market-Roberto actually breaks down the concept of posing by examining the anatomy, starting with the core foundation: the spinal chord and neck. Building from there, Roberto discusses every component of what makes poses work, as well as fail. How should the model hold her hands? Bend her elbows? Position her fingers? Should the model look toward or away from the camera, and why? It all depends on what the photographer wants for the shot, and Roberto discusses the entire process, from the intent of the photographer through the execution of the pose. For those who have been discouraged by an inability to pose their subjects, or who have simply not known where to start in order to figure it out, Picture Perfect Posing is the essential resource they need to learn how posing truly works, and how they can learn to direct the exact pose they need for the shot they want.
