Written specifically for photographers, weather you are a professional, then you can use these techniques to turn a standard portrait into premium product. If you are a serious amateur, then you can use it to make fine art work. For the casual photographer, you can turn family snapshots into painterly images for hanging on the wall. Starting with the basics and moving on to cover brushes, paper textures, auto painting, using colour, and other effects, the author Martin Addison helps you master the tools and adjustments needed to transform your photographs into works of art. Over 2 hours of video tutorials and clear, step-by-step examples take you through the techniques, with all images provided on the DVD so you can learn by practice, comparison, and encouraged experimentation.
