About

Overview

"Surreal Digital Photography" covers the use of digital imaging software to turn digital photographs into artistic works through montage or colour enhancements. It demonstrates the techniques involved through practical projects, many of which produce a "surrealist" end result. The book is broken down to cover landscape, portrait, and studio photography, and the methods involved can be used to create amazing results from any digital photos. Creative showcase sections also highlight the best work from dynamic digital artists, with breakdowns to show the behind-the-scenes work. The book combines practical techniques with a more artistic approach to digital imaging, where it's not just about fixing problems or creating realistic results, but about exercising the imagination and being more playful with your photography.

When Pancakes Go Bad: Optical Delusions with Adobe Photoshop  (ISBN-10: 1592005241 | ISBN-13: 9781592005246)

This book is for readers who find themselves looking at funny images and thinking "Hey, how’d they do that?" Readers will learn how to have fun with photos, such as taking still images and making the characters in them invisible while leaving the clothes untouched and combining images of animals to produce unrealistic characters. With the growing use of digital cameras, this kind of photographic humor is commonly desired by a large audience-both average digital camera users who like cartoon collections as well as those looking to learn Adobe Photoshop. This book is meant to be funny, but it’s also very educational. The end-of-chapter tutorials are tongue-in-cheek, yet contain useful, easy to understand information. Organized into chapters by the general theme of the images, this book is packed with fun and interesting photos that will keep readers entertained until the end.
