FINE ART TECHNIQUES
This workbook came about because so many photographers asked me how to enhance images using artistic techniques related to image highlights, shadows, panoramas and image size enhancements. Good photographers take great pictures, great photographers create images.
An image is something that evokes an emotional response from the viewer. The ability to combine the technical with the creative enhancements is how great images are produced.
Such image enhancements seem so confusing. I believe this book will teach you how to enhance shadows, highlights, straighten lines, stitch panoramas and change the impact of the shape of images. The tools include Dodge and Burn with the ability to select a portion of an image and expand or reduce the shape. This book provides step-by-step exercises for each of the following sections.
