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.

In the past, landscape photography largely ended when the last light of dusk faded from the sky. Today it’s only beginning. The latest digital cameras have made it easy to create images of the landscape at night that film and early digital photographers could only dream of. Equipped with off-the-shelf cameras, more and more photographers are venturing into the night, far beyond the comforting glow of city lights, and returning with spectacular images of places both familiar and unknown that are unlike anything seen before.

Discover The Secrets to Mastering Landscape Photography At Night! Night photography and astrophotography can be two of the most frustrating sub-genres of landscape. A lot of the reason for this is because: 1. It really is a hard subject to master due to the lack of light. 2. People don’t understand how to go about mastering it. It’s very technical, math based, and has a lot of steps. While this can put a lot of people off, I’m here to break it down for you. Planning is absolutely key, and I’ll walk you through every step you need to make your shoot successful. Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn Inside... Tips and Tricks for Photographing in Low Light: Before diving right into night photography, I think it’s best to get your feet wet with a little introduction into the world of low light photography. If you can master this, night photography is the next logical step. The tips include information on the importance of selecting ISO and using a tripod to reduce shake. These things carry over into night photography. Astrophotography and Night Photography: I explain the difference; inclusion of landscape along with the sky or without. How Dark Does it Need to Be?: This chapter discusses how to figure out the light pollution in your area, and a few tips on how to combat it and use it to your advantage if need be. The Gear: This comprehensive list breaks down the essential gear you need to make it work. Planning Your Shoot and Composition: Talks about all the steps you need to take to make your shoot successful. Have a list of all the equipment you need and make sure to pack it all (and extra) at least the night before. Get to know your equipment and make sure it’s all set where it should be in the daylight, before you get to your location. This chapter also discusses the way in which composition differs when you work at night. Getting Star Trails: How to make beautiful star trails in your image Getting Point Stars: Provides opposite techniques to the previous tip, including how to determine exposure time for this style. Editing: Night photography has its own kind of retouching that you have to do to get the perfect image, and I break down all the steps and how to make them work for you.

Simplifying the seemingly difficult and expensive art of underwater photography, this accessible investigation outlines the four elements of success: focus, exposure, composition, and subject. Beginning with an overview of necessary diving skills, this survey reviews these four categories in detail, depicting how to obtain superior results even without the latest and greatest equipment. Maintenance and first-aid tactics are presented as well, reducing the chance of disappointing malfunctions during a dive. Also covered is the importance of developing a photography plan beforehand—both for the safety of the divers and the protection of the underwater environment. Concluding with post-shoot techniques for choosing the best frames, cropping photos for printing, and the top methods of presentation, this examination demonstrates how underwater images can be used to share the world of diving while promoting important conservation efforts.
