PRESS RELEASE: The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook -- New from Rocky Nook
From Import to Output
Santa Barbara, CA—Photography is a wonderful and rewarding hobby for millions of people. However, for a photographer's work to really stand out, two skills are necessary: creativity and technical know-how. Creativity can be difficult to learn and is largely based on talent and experience, but technical knowledge is less an art than a craft and can be learned to perfection.
The work that follows the capture of a photographic image—the workflow in the digital darkroom—has a significant effect on the quality of the final image. This workflow is often underestimated and neglected, leading to weak images and poorly managed image collections. The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook (Rocky Nook, $49.95 USD) is the all-inclusive, definitive resource that will help you avoid crucial mistakes as you master the craft of photographic post-processing.
This book provides a step-by-step guide through the photographic workflow, from image capture, editing, and asset management, all the way to the perfect photographic print. The workflow presented in this book focuses on RAW images, which will give you maximum quality and flexibility, and is based on two of the most popular and powerful software tools: Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook can be used as a reference or textbook by both aspiring amateur and professional photographers, as well as by students.
