In the world of digital photography, inspiration can come at any time. Great images are created behind the camera and then refined at the computer. “Photographers live in the moment when shooting, and I believe we do the same when in front of the monitor,” writes Kevin Ames, veteran photographer and Photoshop master. Building on his popular column in Photoshop User magazine, Kevin expands the scope of the original articles to include in-depth information about all aspects of digital photography. With this book, you’ll gain a focused yet thorough understanding of Adobe’s suite of digital photography applications–Photoshop CS3 (including the Camera Raw plug-in), Lightroom, and Bridge. You’ll not only learn what these powerful applications can do, you’ll also learn which one is best for a given task and see how the applications come together to allow you to work efficiently–all while creating and delivering stunning photographs. Whether dealing with workflow, organization, or truly creative enhancements, Kevin candidly shares his personal image-making process from start to finish. In addition, there are clear and illuminating explanations of many issues relevant to the digital photographer, such as the profound differences between RAW and JPEG, the many benefits of “shooting tethered,” and how lighting really works. Whether you’ve been shooting digital for years or you’re just making the switch from film, The Digital Photographer’s Notebook is an essential guide to managing your portfolio and creating head-turning photographs.

Finally, here is a photography textbook authored in the 21st century for 21st century audiences. Photography: A 21st Century Practice speaks to the contemporary student who has come of age in the era of digital photography and social media, where every day we collectively take more than a billion photographs. How do aspiring photographers set themselves apart from the smartphone-toting masses? How can an emerging photographic artist push the medium to new ground? The answers provided here are innovative, inclusive, and boundary shattering, thanks to the authors’ framework of the "4Cs": Craft, Composition, Content and Concept. Each is explored in depth, and packaged into a toolbox the photographic student can immediately put into practice. With a firm base in digital imaging, the authors also shed new light on chemical-based photographic processes and address the ways in which new technology is rapidly expanding photographic possibilities. In addition, Photography: A 21st Century Practice features: • 12 case studies from professional practice, featuring established photographic artists and showcasing the techniques, concepts, modes of presentation, and other professional concerns that shape their work. • Over 40 student assignments that transform theory into hands-on experience. • 800 full-color images and 200 illustrations, including photographs by some of the world’s best-known and most exciting emerging photographic artists, and illustrations that make even complex processes and ideas simple to understand. • More than 50 guided inquiries into the nature of photographic art to jump start critical thinking and group discussions.

Animators work within a strictly defined, limited space that requires difficult artistic decisions. The blank frame presents a dilemma for all animators, and the decision of what to include and leave out raises important questions about artistry, authorship, and cultural influence. In Animating Space: From Mickey to WALL-E, renowned scholar J. P. Telotte explores how animation has confronted the blank template, and how responses to that confrontation have changed. Focusing on American animation, Telotte tracks the development of animation in line with changing cultural attitudes toward space and examines innovations that elevated the medium from a novelty to a fully realized art form. From Winsor McCay and the Fleischer brothers to the Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros., and Pixar Studios, Animating Space explores the contributions of those who invented animation, those who refined it, and those who, in the current digital age, are using it to redefine the very possibilities of cinema.
