This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: A Professional Image Editor's Guide to the Creative use of Photoshop for the Macintosh and PC (Paperback)
If I could spend the week working along side any photographer I think I'd actually choose Martin to be that person. His knowledge and experience of photography and post processing are just so complete. Given that I do not wish to be the subject of a restraining order his books are the next best thing. His knowledge and expertise exude from every fibre of every page. No stone is left unturned and the explanations given are so thorough and complete that one isn't just learning recipes from a cookbook but embarking on a journey to learn the theory behind all facets of Photoshop. As well as this he discusses what some of the Photoshop greats, past and present, recommend and even how they have changed his views in some areas. I love his writing style and he manages to dissect complex subjects and make them easily understood although I am quietly grateful I don't have to put the CMYK theory to the test any time soon :)
I wholly recommend this book to anyone who really wishes to learn how to use Photoshop in the world of Photography. It's worth every penny/cent.
