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.

What’s your definition of a photo studio? Is it a room with a white seamless backdrop or a cyc wall? Maybe it’s simply anywhere you’re in control of the lighting. In a perfect world, where every day is a breezy 72 degrees with partial cloud coverage, we would all have a 5,000-square-foot studio–and the entire catalog of B&H™ in our equipment lockups. But the reality is that you may have an outdated DSLR with two decent lenses (which took you several years to save up for), and all you have at your disposal is an unfinished basement, your garage, or the empty conference room at your office. That’s where Studio Anywhere comes in. With photographer Nick Fancher as your guide, you’ll learn how to get portfolio-ready photos while working in some of the most problematic scenarios imaginable. Whether shooting a corporate portrait, a test shoot with a model, or a promo shoot with a band, you’ll discover that most of the time, there’s no need for an expensive studio–you just have to get creative. Studio Anywhere is a resource for photographers to learn through behind-the-scenes photos and lighting diagrams from a range of photo shoots–but it doesn’t stop there. Because directing a photo shoot involves more than simply knowing how to wield a camera or process a raw file, Nick also lets you in on the aesthetic decisions he makes in his signature photos, inspiring you to develop your own vision. And, finally, he describes his Lightroom and Photoshop workflow so you can learn how to deftly navigate post-processing. Shows how to create images with minimal equipment that is within reach of anyone’s budget Takes you through the entire shoot, from concept to lighting to exposure to post-processing in Lightroom and Photoshop Teaches how to build a portfolio without a dedicated studio space

A landmark work of science, history and reporting on the past, present and imperiled future of the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes—Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario and Superior—hold 20 percent of the world’s supply of surface fresh water and provide sustenance, work and recreation for tens of millions of Americans. But they are under threat as never before, and their problems are spreading across the continent. The Death and Life of the Great Lakes is prize-winning reporter Dan Egan’s compulsively readable portrait of an ecological catastrophe happening right before our eyes, blending the epic story of the lakes with an examination of the perils they face and the ways we can restore and preserve them for generations to come. For thousands of years the pristine Great Lakes were separated from the Atlantic Ocean by the roaring Niagara Falls and from the Mississippi River basin by a “sub-continental divide.” Beginning in the late 1800s, these barriers were circumvented to attract oceangoing freighters from the Atlantic and to allow Chicago’s sewage to float out to the Mississippi. These were engineering marvels in their time—and the changes in Chicago arrested a deadly cycle of waterborne illnesses—but they have had horrendous unforeseen consequences. Egan provides a chilling account of how sea lamprey, zebra and quagga mussels and other invaders have made their way into the lakes, decimating native species and largely destroying the age-old ecosystem. And because the lakes are no longer isolated, the invaders now threaten water intake pipes, hydroelectric dams and other infrastructure across the country. Egan also explores why outbreaks of toxic algae stemming from the overapplication of farm fertilizer have left massive biological “dead zones” that threaten the supply of fresh water. He examines fluctuations in the levels of the lakes caused by manmade climate change and overzealous dredging of shipping channels. And he reports on the chronic threats to siphon off Great Lakes water to slake drier regions of America or to be sold abroad. In an age when dire problems like the Flint water crisis or the California drought bring ever more attention to the indispensability of safe, clean, easily available water, The Death and the Life of the Great Lakes is a powerful paean to what is arguably our most precious resource, an urgent examination of what threatens it and a convincing call to arms about the relatively simple things we need to do to protect it.
