Resources

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.

This bonus chapter explores how some contemporary photography artists use their more advanced digital skills, along with the products of creative online entrepreneurs, to enhance their original images, as in 11-1 and 11-2. Hopefully you will find it inspiring enough to take some of your images into post-processing software and play away.
