Timís work combines several of his greatest passions: technology, teaching, photography, writing, and travel. All of these have been part of his life in some way for as long as he can remember, and became a major focus starting in high school. He has been focused on digital photography and imaging for over 10 years. Tim has written more than a dozen books on on digital imaging for photographers, including the best-selling Photoshop CS3 Workflow and Color Confidence.

"Interesting format for a book: its like one of those casual radio call-in shows where an expert on gardening shows up in the studio, sits behind a microphone, and fields calls from the public about slugs and thrips for an hour. Except that the topic is digital photography, not garden & plant problems."
--Michael Shaw, Macintosh Users East (MaUsE)

"...Take Your Best Shot is a great book for anyone from novice to advanced amateur as well as anyone making the move from film to digital. I very highly recommend Take Your Best Shot."
