Love the way she thinks!  (¬‿¬)

Years ago, I bought Katrin Eismann's book on Masking and Compositing.  It was so chock-a-block full of superb information which was presented so superbly that I then bought another of her books, on Restoration and Retouching, even though I had no interest in those topics.  Sure enough, that book, too, was crammed with useful goodies.  It has all enhanced my post-processing and final results.  I have since seen her books next to the workstations of some very experienced photographers and retouchers - they're that good.

Katrin strikes one as an outstanding teacher and a fine person.  I would recommend her books heartily.


Katrin Eismann is a blessed Photographer and Instructor for Photography who just photographed people, ideas, and places all across the world. Eismann who did a very special lecture on Photography as a successful lecturer before being applauded by audience. Finally, Eismann has a wonderful website or a blog in where she has posted all of her own images.
