An amazingly well written book,
This review is from: Digital Negatives: Using Photoshop to Create Digital Negatives for Silver and Alternative Process Printing (Paperback)
I am so pleased that, despite reading the previous review, I went on to buy the book. Few books are so well organized and self contained.
The authors explain with great clarity the procedure from beginning to end, without assuming any prior knowledge on the subject.
They make no secret that they predilect palladium printing and the book is interspersed with some impressive samples. But this does not mean that they concentrate exclusively on this particular technique. On the contrary it covers with meticulous detail all the associated indispensable steps from scanning, preparing the file in photoshop, making calibration curves, printing the digital negative on an inkjet printer down to the last steps of how to use the darkroom (or an improvised one) to make the final print.
I read and buy many books and I wish there were more like this one.
