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.
