Library Journal Review

These three attractive, informative books form an excellent basis for a small library on digital photography. In recent years, digital photography has had a tremendous influence, and as equipment costsDnotably for camerasDcontinue to drop, digital imagery will soon completely revolutionize photography. Each of these books will be very helpful for professional and amateur photographers making the transition to digital photography. Illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs, Lute's Photo Retouching with Adobe Photoshop specifically addresses retouching methods. Moreover, the book thoroughly covers equipment, including scanners, and many other aspects of working with digital images. A small-format handbook with many color illustrations, Johnson's The Digital Photography Handbook defines the new technology and offers helpful information on selecting equipment. It emphasizes the making of photographs, referred to as "gathering digital images," and creative computer projects. Ang's Silver Pixels presents digital photography as a new art form along with a useful discussion of equipment and materials. Accompanied by many striking illustrations, the book explains a number of sophisticated creative techniques in digital photography. If you are forced to choose from the three titles, be sure to acquire Photo Retouching because of its clear, straightforward approach to the subject, closely followed by Silver Pixels, which readers will find valuable for its intricate creative projects. However, because these books complement one another so well, all three are highly recommended for public and academic libraries.DRaymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
