Volume 5 Front CoverIn these books John transforms photographs into vibrant and emotionally filled images. John has a unique color palette for his images and he possesses the artistic talent for presenting the real world in its most beautiful form. FINE ART TECHNIQUES Volume 4 – Understanding Layers & Masks   6×9 full color 60 pages of step-by-step instructionsVolume 4 is a workbook for digital photographers who have a basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom but have been fearful or just confused about layers, layer masks and making selections.

I’ve been urged to build this workbook by many photographers who told me they want to use layers; they know that post processing now nearly requires the use of layers and masks. Yet these concepts seem so confusing. I believe this book will teach you layers and layer masks especially when used with Adjustment Layers. The most misunderstood tool is selections and how they can be used with a Pixel Layer and an Adjustment Layer. This book provides step-by-step exercises for selecting a human figure and placing the figure into another image.

FINE ART TECHNIQUES Volume 3 – Special Effects

6×9 full color 65 pages of step-by-step instructions

This is a personal work book for digital photographers who have a working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Camera RAW. This book presents special tools and filters in Photoshop and Adobe Camera Raw techniques that I use to achieve images in my style and color palette. These techniques bring a fine art quality to my images.

We often do not use techniques because we don’t understand their use. Instructions frequently provide detailed descriptions of the tool and how it functions rather than how and when to apply them to images. This book is different! This work book will teach fine art techniques for the tools and specific filters. Sample images are provided for each section by downloading from my web site.

When you become comfortable using my fine art techniques and favorite tools and filters you, too, will see your own images emerge into fine art. The results will amaze you!
