The Landscape Photographer's Guide to Photoshop

The first step to creating a successful photograph happens before you even click the shutter: the act of visualizing the final result—viewing the landscape in front of you and seeing, in your mind’s eye, the final image that you want to create—is the true first act of the creative process. Once you know the end result you want to achieve, connecting the dots from capture through post-processing in Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop becomes an intentional and logical act. Instead of randomly (and desperately) pushing and pulling sliders in Photoshop with the hope that your image will look “better,” you execute a logical series of steps that closes the gap between the initial capture and your earlier visualization. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Avenir Next'} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Avenir Next'; min-height: 16.0px} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Symbol; min-height: 11.0px} span.s1 {font: 11.0px Symbol} span.Apple-tab-span {white-space:pre} In The Landscape Photographer’s Guide to Photoshop: A Visualization-Driven Workflow, photographer, author, and educator Guy Tal provides you with a roadmap to help you learn to implement such a visualization-driven approach in your landscape photography. Guy covers process, workflow, and the hands-on Photoshop techniques you need to know in order to achieve your expressive goals. In this book, you’ll learn: • Techniques and strategies to help you effectively implement visualization in your photographic process • How to perform “gap analysis,” where you learn to identify the gaps between the image at any point in time and the desired outcome • How to use Adobe Camera Raw to optimize your digital negative in advance of further editing in Photoshop • The best ways to set up your Photoshop preferences for optimal performance • How best to employ Photoshop’s tools and features (such as the Healing Brush, Cloning tool, Cropping tool, and blending modes) • How to become proficient with layers, masks, selections, and actions • Dodging and burning techniques to masterfully direct the viewer’s eye • Image-blending techniques for dynamic range and focus stacking • Post-processing strategies for black-and-white conversions, including toning your images • Printing and other output techniques, covering sizing, sharpening, noise reduction, and color management Bringing all of these techniques together, Guy presents a series of image case studies, beginning with his earlier visualization for each image in mind and working through the post-processing, from RAW capture to the final print.

Saints Santos Shrines

Wooden sculptures and relief paintings of saints such as St. Francis, the Blessed Virgin, and Apostles of Christ have for centuries been objects of devotion and worship in the Southwest Catholic culture. This centuries-old heritage is celebrated here through photographs, essay, and literary quotes that beautifully bring the devotion into focus. Crafting saints has always been seen as a high calling. These santeros and santeras (saint makers) created santos—images of saints, Christ, the Trinity, and Holy Family—painting them on wooden panels called retablos. They carved and painted wooden sculptures called bultos. And if they built a home chapel, they carved and painted an altar screen, or altar retablo, called a reredos, that was made up of smaller retablos and sometimes adorned with bultos. John Annerino is the author and photographer of seventeen distinguished photography books and thirty-two single-artist calendars, including The Virgin of Guadalupe (Gibbs Smith), Ancient America, New Mexico Wild & Scenic, Arizona Wild & Scenic, and the awardwinning books Desert Light, Indian Country, Grand Canyon Wild, Canyons of the Southwest, The Wild Country of Mexico, and Roughstock: The Toughest Events in Rodeo (acclaimed by the Rodeo Hall of Fame).
