Since the earliest days of photography, artists have been altering the straight out of camera image by etching, layering, or sandwiching negatives or steeping the final prints in countless chemicals. Just as with painters, the simple representation is often not enough to satisfy creative hunger.
So far in this book, you have learned to produce a more vibrant photograph by learning to see brilliant and defining light, to compose elements of the photograph, and to evoke captivating expressions.
