The Digital Darkroom

Image Interpretation Techniques

£9.99

Knowing what to do, rather than howto do it, is a skill that takes years in learning. 

This e-book is not a tutorial on learning a specific application such as Photoshop or Lightroom. Instead, it deals with the art of image interpretation - how to edit your work. The e-book shows you how to read your images and learn what you need to do to them in the digital darkroom.

Contains many examples of work before and after the edit, to get you on your way.
