Product Description

About the Author

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 am a big fan of Michael Freeman and own several of his books including Perfect Exposure; his Photo School on Portraits and the stunning 'The Photographers Eye.' There is nothing inherently wrong with this book from his Photo School series but I believe, in attempting to cover all of the mainstream digital editing programs available and, quite rightly, asserting that the tools in each are very similar, he then proceeds to describe the tools available and what they are capable of without going into too much detail as to how one might use them. There are some parts where he has explained how to use the tool. The various aspects to the Healing Brush (I use Photoshop) come to mind, where Mr. Freeman describes perfectly adequately spot removal from your images (a must for owners of Nikon's D600 such as myself) but, in the main, the book lacks depth. Having given an example of one of the books good points I feel compelled to mention the section on layers. This is woefully inadequate and contains, mainly, before and after examples of photographs with barely a hint of how to get from A to B. It covers two pages, mainly taken up with the afore mentioned pictures, as does the following section on adjustment layers. Anyone hoping to further their knowledge in one of the most powerful aspects of Photoshop will, I suspect, be sorely disappointed with this 'wave of the hand' approach to this particular subject. Michael Freeman's photography books are amongst the best available and I do find it regrettable that this book, for me, did not live up to his very high standards.

Superb book and goes to places I would not have thought of. I use Lightroom and I am a pro photographer. A very clear well layed out book. Has a built in workflow and great examples. Well deserved 5*. Michael Freeman's book are always good but this one I think is exceptional.

Here is another of Michael's Photo School series. I like the approach taken in these books,although I don't think this is quite as good as the black and white edition. It seems a little more basic, but still filled with lots of useful tips and ideas.

Yes it tells you what you need to know. The trick though is to put it into practice. Looks pretty on the bookshelf
