Weaving the tradition of darkroom printing techniques together with the latest raw file processing tools, Creating Exhibition-Quality Digital Prints shows the reader how to interpret the digital negative sensitively, and in doing so, create eye-catching final exhibition prints. Illustrated with long step-by step projects, with no assumptions made about prior knowledge, the book will help readers to understand how to develop a personalised printing style using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom and professional digital output. Following on from his two previous, highly successful books on digital printing, Tim Daly takes the raw digital file as his starting point and illustrates a wide range of techniques for drawing out the very best version of the latent file. Illustrated with a number of instructive photographic projects, showing each stage from start to finish, and driven more by photographic aesthetics than straight software techniques, Daly's new book shows how to deliver eye-catching prints in a wide range of styles, sizes and locations.
Tim Daly is author of several books for Argentum, including The Digital Printing Handbook, Creating Exhibition-Quality Digital Prints and The Digital Colour Printing Handbook.
