INTERESTING BUT RATHER COMPLEX TECHNIQUE
on 20 July 2015
After an initial appraisal of the book, I am not convinced that the technique is as useful for digital photography as the author implies.
None of the images within the book have convinced me of the benefits of using this rather complex system. In my opinion, using Photoshop with a number of readily available plug-ins can achieve similar results. I would have liked to have seen much more information in the book, particularly in chapter 5, as I suspect some stages have been missed out, or perhaps more illustrations might have helped.
Just owning Photoshop is not enough: unless the reader is an expert in all the detailed workings of Photoshop, I would recommend steering clear of the technique described in this book.
Although I am a very keen photographer and an active member of a local camera club, I will not be adopting this technique any time soon.
