This update to his award-winning, record-breaking book does something for digital photographers that’s never been done before–it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly “how to do it.” It’s not a bunch of theory; it doesn’t challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure it out on your own. Instead, Scott shows you step by step the exact techniques used by today’s cutting-edge digital photographers, and best of all, he shows you flat-out exactly which settings to use, when to use them, and why. That’s why the previous editions of this book are widely used as the official study guide in photography courses at colleges and universities around the world.
LEARN HOW THE PROS DO IT
Each year, Scott trains thousands of professional photographers on how to use Photoshop, and almost without exception they have the same questions, the same problems, and the same challenges–and that’s exactly what he covers in this book. You’ll learn:
The sharpening techniques the pros really use. The pros’ tricks for fixing the most common digital photo problems fast! How to process HDR (High Dynamic Range) images to get realistic looking images, as well as the heavily tone-mapped hyperreal look. How to master Photoshop’s Content-Aware features. How to use Photoshop’s video editing features to make movies from your DSLR videos. How to process RAW images like a pro (plus how to take advantage of all the new Camera Raw features in CC). The latest Photoshop special effects for photographers (there’s a whole chapter just on these!). A host of shortcuts, workarounds, and slick “insider” tricks to send your productivity through the roof!
Plus, Scott includes a special chapter with his own workflow, from start to finish, and each chapter ends with a Photoshop Killer Tips section, packed with time-saving, job-saving tips that make all the difference. He also provides four bonus chapters, along with all the images used in the book for download on the book’s companion webpage.
If you’re a digital photographer, and if you’re ready to learn all the “tricks of the trade”– the same ones that today’s leading pros use to correct, edit, retouch, and sharpen their work–then you’re holding the book that will do just that.
He aquí la brillante premisa de este libro en palabras del propio Scott: "Imagínate que estamos tomando fotos juntos y de repente me dices: ‘Oye, ¿cómo le hago para que la flor quede bien enfocada pero el fondo fuera de foco?’” No me pondría a darte toda una cátedra de fotografía. En esa circunstancia, simplemente te diría: "coloca tu teleobjetivo zoom, ajústalo a una abertura de f/2.8, enfoca la flor y dispara". De eso se trata este libro: tú y yo tomando fotos, y yo contestando a todas tus preguntas, dándote consejos y compartiendo contigo todos los secretos que he aprendido, tal y como lo haría con un buen amigo, evitándote además el lastre de los tecnicismos.
Este no es un libro de teoría, repleto de palabras técnicas y confusas, y de conceptos complicados. Este libro te indicará qué botón apretar, qué configuración usar y cuándo. Con cerca de 200 de los trucos más preciados del gremio fotográfico, este libro te ayudará a mejorar dramáticamente tus fotografías, haciéndolas más nítidas, más coloridas y mucho más profesionales.
En cada página se desarrolla un concepto que te ayudará a mejorar la calidad de tus fotos. A cada vuelta de página te encontrarás con otra configuración, mecanismo o truco de profesional, que convertirá tus instantáneas en fotografías dignas de una galería. Si estás harto de sacar fotos que sólo se ven más o menos bien, y nunca como las que aparecen en las revistas de fotografía, entonces este es el libro que necesitas.
Scott Kelby, the man who changed the "digital darkroom" forever with his groundbreaking, #1 bestselling, award-winning book The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers, now tackles the most important side of digital photography—how to take professional-quality shots using the same tricks today's top digital pros use (and it's easier than you'd think).
Here’s how Scott describes this book’s brilliant premise: "If you and I were out on a shoot, and you asked me, 'Hey, how do I get this flower to be in focus, but I want the background out of focus?' I wouldn't stand there and give you a photography lecture. In real life, I'd just say, 'Put on your zoom lens, set your f/stop to f/2.8, focus on the flower, and fire away.' That's what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I've learned just like I would with a friend—without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak."
This isn't a book of theory—full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With nearly 200 of the most closely guarded photographic "tricks of the trade," this book gets you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.
Each page covers a single concept that makes your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you'll learn another pro setting, tool, or trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. If you're tired of taking shots that look "okay," and if you’re tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, "Why don't my shots look like that?" then this is the book for you.
