The Digital Darkroom

Image Interpretation Techniques

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.

Simplifying Composition

Synopsis

Yes, there are certain devices you can use to aid composition, and sometimes, there are rules at play. Our brains are always balancing, weighing up scenes and in this book, I make you more aware of what's always been going on in the back of your mind, except you just didn't know it.

Simplifying Visualisation

Synopsis

Aspect Ratios
Simplifying Composition

Synopsis

In this eBook I discuss the controversial topic of aspect ratios. Did you know that the aspect ratio of your camera dictates how you compose your images? And did you know that choosing the wrong camera (and therefore aspect ratio) may impede your development of good composition?
