While the whole world is obsessed with "fixing it in Photoshop", authors Rod and Robin Deutschmann bring us back to a time when you had to get 'it' right in the camera. Their book, from Amherst media, titled, Painting with a Lens: The Digital Photographer's Guide to Designing Artistic Images In-Camera teaches you time-tested methods for carefully composing and capturing your vision when you shoot.
Topics covered include; careful composure, focus, choosing the best camera settings, lighting, and lens choice. The authors also teach you how to make the most of the camera's basic controls, such as shutter speed, aperture, and white balance, to make not just quality images, but artistic ones. Additional topics covered include using the lens to add creative blur and out-of-this world effects.

In addition, a section on selectively and intentionally adding blur effects explains how to create wild effects that cannot be achieved otherwise. Rather than relying on a computer to "fix" images, Painting with a Lens provides the tools essential to becoming an artist with a camera
