O'Reilly Media Signs Eddie Tapp for New Book Series
Miami, FL--Photoshop World--O'Reilly Media has signed an agreement with
digital photography expert and trainer, Eddie Tapp. A new tutorial-based
book series is in the works entitled "Eddie Tapp on Digital Photography."
The series is designed to cover specific areas of technical need for
working professionals and serious students of photography, without forcing
them to buy more than they need. Topics covered will range from color
management, workflow, to production techniques and output. The first book
covering workflow management is due to be released in July 2006.
"We're excited to be working with Eddie Tapp on this much-needed series,"
comments Mark Brokering, O'Reilly Media's V.P., Associate Publisher. "The
field of digital photography is growing and evolving so rapidly--and the
need for good, reliable information is greater than ever. People are
looking for the kind of expertise that can come only from a master
craftsman like Eddie."
Eddie Tapp on Digital Photography Series:
The books are designed in full-color, rich with the work of Tapp and other
professional photographers, and relatively short: usually no more than 250
pages. Tapp's writing mirrors his teaching technique: plain-spoken, to
the point, and conversational. Each title is designed to be a
seminar-in-a-book, freeing readers from having to buy much larger books in
order to sift through them in search of a few specific sections.
