Don’t miss out, this amazing SnapnDeal will be up for a limited time only!
In The Art of Color Processing: A Guide to Creative Development in the Digital Darkroom, I explain my color processing workflow in a step-by-step fashion, guiding you through each stage from start to finish. In addition to learning the details of my digital image processing, I also discuss the history of my creative development and what led me to discover my own techniques. These important milestones in my photography can direct you towards the development of your own unique color workflows, and provide the key to unlocking the full potential of your creative connection for unlimited possibilities.
This eBook is divided into three sections, with each contributing an important part to not only learning my color image processing workflow, but also how to develop your own techniques in the digital darkroom.
Section 1 discusses my philosophy on digital image processing and the steps that led to the development of my color workflow. You will have your own path to travel in your creative journey. By learning how my techniques came to fruition, you can identify some key turning points while also shedding some light on any potential obstacles.
Sections 2 and 3 explain the specific workflows of my editing and color image processing in a step-by-step format. I discuss my techniques and why I chose them, and you can see the evolution of my images from RAW format to the final presentation using screenshots from Adobe® Photoshop CS6 software for visual instruction. I use the example photo below, guiding you through each step from what is captured in the camera (top) to the final color processed image (bottom).
Table of Contents
Also included with this Bundle is an entire eCourse on exposure blending – the post processing technique I use to create my golden hour images in the digital darkroom. By using a combination of written instructions and step-by-step video tutorials, I’ll teach you how to achieve a seamless blend of exposures so you can fully enjoy your photography by overcoming the limitations of your camera.
Exposure blending is an innovative way to combine different exposures within the same image, which is often needed when photographing the golden hours. I dedicate over 100 pages, 8 video tutorials, and 7 image files to this subject, explaining how to photograph a scene for exposure blending, and then how to import these files into Photoshop for blending to create the final image. I also discuss how to create luminosity masks, which is an innovative way to combine multiple exposures together for a seamless, natural blend.

DO I NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO PURCHASE AN EBOOK?
PayPal handles the transaction, but you don’t have to create a PayPal account in order to purchase. When you’re ready to checkout, click on “Checkout with PayPal” from your shopping cart. On the next screen, select “Don’t have a PayPal account?” and you can enter your card information there to complete the purchase like any other online transaction.
WHAT EDITING PROGRAM DO YOU USE FOR THESE EBOOKS?
My processing workflows are completed step-by-step using screenshots from Photoshop CS6. The techniques I use rely on features that have been part of Photoshop since CS2, so you’ll be able to perform my workflows with earlier versions.
DO I NEED TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PHOTOSHOP FIRST?
While I do explain the basic functions of the tools I use, you’ll find it helpful to have a basic understanding of Photoshop and familiarize yourself with your workspace. Specifically, you should know how to access your layers panel and adjustment layers, and be able to perform basic edits.
CAN I USE THIS EBOOK FOR OTHER PROCESSING PROGRAMS SUCH AS ADOBE® LIGHTROOM AND GIMP?
The step-by-step instructions in this eBook are executed in Photoshop CS6, however the basic workflow can be applied to any editing program that utilizes layers and layer masks. That aside, you’ll find that Photoshop will give you the best learning experience as the tools in Lightroom and other programs can be limited in their functionality.
For example, you can replicate the exposure blending process in Lightroom by using third-party software which mimics the layers feature of Photoshop. However, you’ll find the clone tool to be more powerful in Photoshop than it is in Lightroom.
HOW DO I PURCHASE AN EBOOK AS A GIFT?
When you purchase an eBook, you will receive a separate email containing your download link. To send it as a gift, you can either forward this email to your recipient, or copy the link into your own personalized email.
Through my work, I like to show a vantage point that is rarely seen in reality; a show of beauty, emotion, and serenity. There are countless mesmerizing scenes among us that are often hidden from society – my goal is to expose them to the world so that I may share the wonders I have seen.
After college, I returned to the coast of Maine to pursue my love of landscape photography and have made it my career. Maine is one of the few states that is relatively untouched by human interference, which makes it the perfect landscape. My work changes like the seasons of New England, which always presents me with surreal opportunities to create something unique.
