Sobre o livro
You are not offering testimony to the existence of something, you are bringing something into existencesomething that did not exist before, and that would not exist if it were not for you. ~Guy TalThe first step to creating an expressive photograph happens before you even click the shutter: it is the act of visualizing an image in your minds eye. Once composed and captured, the data recorded by the camera is then transformed in processing to match the visualized image.To become a better expressive photographer means, among other things, to become a better visualizer. This requires more than just technical skill, but also an understanding of what art is, what it means to be an artist, and how to translate your thoughts, feelings, and experiences into visual creations.In The Landscape Photographers Guide to Photoshop: A Visualization-Driven Workflow, Guy Tal provides a broad theoretical foundation for digital landscape photography as an expressive visual art, and for understanding how art and technology come together to serve your creative purpose. He then offers a roadmap for a visualization-driven approach to processing images in Photoshop.Topics include:An overview of the history of art and of photography as artA deeper understanding of creativity and visualization, and of the technical underpinnings of digital imagingTechniques to effectively apply visualization in creating and processing your imagesHow to perform gap analysis to identify the gaps between the image at any point in time and the desired outcomeHow to convert your RAW files using Adobe Camera Raw prior to editing in PhotoshopHow best to employ many of Photoshops tools and featuresHow to leverage Layers and Masks to accomplish your visualized resultsHow to control and adjust contrast, color, and toneImage blending techniques to extend dynamic range and for focus stackingProcessing strategies for black-and-white conversions, including toning your imagesPrinting and other output techniques including sizing, sharpening, noise reduction, and color managementBringing all of these techniques together, Guy presents a detailed case study, beginning with his initial visualization for the final image and working through his processing steps from RAW conversion to the final print.
