"Your recommendations requested"

I'm looking for a good book on digital photography, somthing that covers Photoshop CS, curves, color, and (if possible) flash techniques.

Went to Borders and was overwhelmed by the number of books so I was hoping you could recommend your favorites.

Best regards,
Don

Hi there, I bought a book for Photoshop from Scott kelby called The Photoshop CS book for digtal photographers. It is amazing and I have gone from beginner to being able to fix all sorts of problems. The thing I like is that it is not a Photoshop Text Book, but specifically aimed at US. I like that! And he has a good sense of humour and you can take what you want from each section.

Suggest you grab a copy. Its not going to cover all things digital photography wise, but I can HIGHLY recommend it. He has a web site and you can get it quite easily off the 'Net.

Andrew

Kelby is a recoginized expert with Photoshop and his book for Digital Photographers is great. If you are looking for more information on PS you might check out www.photoshopvideos.com. They have some excellent training videos. Of course there is always the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) www.photoshopuser.com. Membership is $99 per year and you can get nice discounts on Kelbys books and Videos (Kelby is President of NAPP). They also publish a great bi-monthly magazine. I am an amature and find the discounts and the magazine worth every penny of my membership.

Thanks all for your recommendations. It sounds like Kelby's book is the clear winner.

There is an extremely good learning source called "123di" or the 123 of Digital Imaging. I bought this a few days ago.

There is a review of it here:

http://www.humper-t.com/tag/tutorials/

At the end of the first paragraph is a telling sentence: "As well, many of the industry’s top manufacturers such as Intel, Nikon, Epson and others use The 123di Interactive Learning Suite for internal training. High praise indeed."

This is a link to the 123di site:

http://www.123di.com/

You can download a demo from it.

I'm still studying Chapter 1, about light. I can see that if I get my head around it all, post processing will be far simpler than I find it now.

I would usually rather have a book in my hand, however, this program is not "in your face" on the screen, and wherever you decide to close it, it will open there next time you start it up.

You can pay and download it immediately, then receive the cd in the mail later.

I certainly recommend it wholeheartedly.

Hope this helps.

Roger

Maybe not for the original poster, who has let his membership lapse since this thread was started nearly 6 years ago
