This tutorial takes photographers beyond the quick tips and gimmicky effects of many digital photography books. Author Katrin Eismann -- an internationally acclaimed artist, bestselling author, and gifted educator -- offers high-profile work, including her own, as examples for teaching photographers how to use the digital medium to create, edit, and output images that reflect their true vision.

Co-authored by photographer and teacher Sean Duggan,The Creative Digital Darkroomtranslates skills, concepts, and nomenclature of the traditional darkroom into digital solutions for photographers who sense that, despite the newness of the technologies at hand, there remains a timeless method for learning and practicing photography the right way. This is not a Photoshop book per se, but it does focus on the photographic aspects of Photoshop, something other books claim to do but rarely have the discipline to accomplish.The Creative Digital Darkroomincludes:

  • Four sections that cover the black & white darkroom, the color darkroom, creative techniques, and production essentials
  • Chapters that begin with a thorough foundation followed by numerous tutorial examples that apply the theory to real-world examples
  • Examples and a layout that enables readers to find, understand, and apply the featured techniques quickly and easily
  • The authors are both renowned photographers and Photoshop experts
Clearly,The Creative Digital Darkroomis not your typical digital photography "how to" book. It's ideal for intermediate and advanced photographers, artists, and educators looking for clear, concise, insightful, and inspiring information and techniques on how to make their photographs shine. The language, and techniques will immediately appeal to serious students and professionals, and the original tutorial images and high-profile work will make the book an important visual resource for educators and art appreciators.
Katrin Eismann is world-known for her talent as a Photoshop expert and photographer, but above all she's considered one of the best teachers her field has ever seen. This book uses the clear, concise tutorial approach that made her two previous Photoshop books bestsellers that take photographers beyond quick tips and gimmicky effects.S...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why one shouldn't buy on the web! I bought the book on the net. I was looking for more specifics before buying and couldn't find them on the net. Should have looked at a hard copy. A couple of comments: despite visiting the O'Reilly site and hearing Eismann interviewed-talk about using Lightroom for 80-85% of the process and Photoshop for the rest-this book is about Photoshop and refers the reader to a couple of other Lightroom books and then it's a 2008 book but makes reference that at the time of writing that the PowerMac G5 is the most powerful Macintosh computer-what about Apple's Intel revolution. Not the book I wanted.
