Author: Rick Sammon

Review: Rick Sammon’s Digital Imaging Workshops picks up where his popular Complete Guide to Digital Photography leaves off. The earlier book gave us brief glimpses of the power of digital imaging. In his new book Sammon has selected 20 of the most common and effective imaging techniques that workshop participants request.
Each richly illustrated workshop in the book is accompanied by Sammon’s base images on the CD-ROM so that readers can follow step by step along with Sammon using the same image as portrayed in the book. This technique leads readers to develop their own ideas very rapidly. The book opens with a tour of Adobe Photoshop Elements tools and menus. For photographers who are visual learners, the book’s CD-ROM also contains short movies that readers can view on their computer showing how to manipulate the most useful tools and menu actions in Elements.
