This book is part of The Digital Imaging Masters Series, which features cutting-edge information from the most sought-after and qualified professionals and instructors in the photography field.

Co-authors are Andy Batt, Candace Dobro, and Jodie Steen.

Technical explanations about how photographic tools work-so you can connect knowledge to your practice and work more instinctively and creatively.
Key steps for improving digital workflow.
Innovative exercises at the end of each chapter as well as on the companion website that encourage you to experiment with and understand the photographic process-from learning how far you can push your camera's sensor to exploring the effects of neutral vs. creative color.
Interviews with technical and creative experts about developing skills and making images that matter.
