Product Description

About the Author

JOHN BEARDSWORTH is a photographer and writer with a wealth of experience photographing both digitally and on film. He is the author of Step-by-Step Digital Black-and-White Photography, Photoshop Blending Modes Cookbook, Photoshop Fine Art Effects Cookbook, Digital Photographer's Guide to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and Advanced Digital Black & White Photography.

Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career.

Since then, working for clients that include all the world's major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman's reputation as one of the world's leading reportage photographershas been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture.

Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.

I have a number of Michael Freeman's books, some of which are very good and thought provoking, they will help you become a better photographer. This is not as good as some of his others. There is an error on page 84 (possibly a typo or poor proof-reading), which is contradicted by what is correctly stated on page 20. Replace references to dots per inch (dpi) with pixels per inch (ppi) and this section is correct.

This book is a step above a basic introduction to printing, but no more than intermediate. There are many clear illustrations and good reference to a range of printing related issues. I think it is actually very difficult to produce a reference to printing which will not be out-dated quickly, due to the rate of advances in technology. Michael Freeman has made a reasonable stab at it (typos aside!), but this will not last long and will not meet all the needs of someone looking for advanced information.

This book is stunningly presented with outstanding print and image quality. It covers just about everything in terms of providing a general understanding of printing, colour space and presentation. I couldn't award 5 stars as I would have preferred a bit more specialism on printing itself and sharing of a few professional workflow secrets on soft proofing and test printing. There was good advice in the pre-printing and preparation areas but I just wanted a bit more in covering first prints, what to look for and what then to do to improve subsequent prints. Overall though a great book to those new to printing and colour managed workflow. As always the text by Michael Freeman is beautifully written.

A good book for the person who wants to produce a high class product from their own printer. Although Epson is in the title and is covered in the text the whole book is much more orientated to the art of printing.

This book is beautifully printed, with many colorfull pictures and covers many aspects of printing, generally and relative to your Epson.
So you will find these chapters: 1-PRINTER AND INKS, 2-PAPER, 3-COLOR MANAGEMENT, 4-PRINT COMPARISONS, 5-THE CRAFT, 6-PRESENTATION AND DISPLAY.
The layout is beautiful, and there are many nice pictures and explanations. The only problem about this book is that it does not deliver
what it promises: the best from you printer. Let me explain what I found out. Page 84 is about Software setup and resolution. Any digital image
will have alpha x beta pixels, a resolution measured in pixels per inch, and a size: Width x Height. (In fact if you divide alpha by Width you will get
resolution). A picture you want to print will probably have a different size than the "native" size of you image, so you will have to resample it.
(It is better to do it in Photoshop than to let your printer do it)
Usually (but not necessarily) you will reduce it. So the author is suggesting that you set the resolution to 300 pixels/inch.
Apparently though, from research done on the internet most Epsons have a "Native" resolution of 720 pixels/inch.
This means that the optimal setting will be 720 pixels/inch (or at least a multiple of this figure like 360/inch), otherwise the printer
will have to "resample"/"interpolate" and the quality will be reduced. Anyway, I did try it on my Epson and with help from a magnifying lens I could
clearly see the difference between 300 and 720 dpi.
(So honestly...not alot of difference but still enough that it could be seen; why shouldn't I be getting the most when I just have to type a number?
