Introduction

In this book, I cover the art form of digital art photography. I start by giving you an introduction to the world of film-based photography and how it relates to digital photography. From there, I go on to cover the whole gambit of digital art photography, from shooting great photos to tweaking them in Photoshop to producing final output fit for a gallery wall. If that sounds intriguing, this book is for you whether you're film-based or digital-only or both.

About This Book

Here are some of the things this book will help you do:

  • Find out when it's time to upgrade your computer to handle graphics work
