Capture: Digital Photography Essentials--New from Rocky Nook
Santa Barbara, CA—The beginning of the photographic process significantly affects the final outcome of an image—a fact that remains as true for digital photography as it is for film. To create a good digital image or negative, good exposure is required.
Capture: Digital Photography Essentials (Rocky Nook, $39.95 USD) concentrates on photography from a digital- capture workflow point of view. The text addresses both the opportunities and limitations of digital photography, and teaches you how to make the most of the opportunities and to work around the limitations.
Authors Glenn Rand, Christopher Broughton, and Amanda Quintenz-Fiedler discuss the digital tools that allow photographers to capture, create, and maintain high-quality digital photographs. You will learn to maximize the potential of your images as you gain an understanding of the core principles as well as the more advanced aspects of the digital photographic process.
Throughout the text you will find various projects that are based on tested teaching concepts for digital photography, as well as numerous images that are both inspirational and instructional.
