For Both Beginners and Advanced Amateurs March 30, 2011
Photographers will especially like this textbook since many of the tips are oriented toward photo retouching and manipulation, rather than for the canvas artist. I like it that the textbook goes beyond using the Photoshop application - for example there is an excellent section on calibrating the monitor and printer color profile. In another example the Extracting Hair Project advises: "Your number one essential step for success is to first shoot your model against a featureless background that is either very dark or very light.
