Photoshop CS3 Mastering Lab Color (CD-ROM)

Author:Deke McClelland
Type: CD-ROM
Notes:
Product Description
Based on the device-independent CIE specification from 1976, Lab color is frequently misrepresented as a techy, labor-intensive color space. In fact, Lab color performs certain types of color modifications more quickly and with better results than RGB. In Photoshop CS3: Mastering Lab Color, Deke McClelland explores how to use Lab color 'to make bad photographs great and great photographs even better.' He demonstrates image manipulations that are best suited to Lab, and walks through a typical, non-destructive Lab correction. Deke also shows how to correct lighting, apply selective color modifications, and reverse the effects of color cast. Exercise files accompany the course.

Topics Include:

* Targeting luminance and color information independently
* Saving a Lab image
* Balancing and deepening skin tones
* Exposing bright eyes and teeth
* Sharpening and blurring in Lab
* Fading and blending edits
* Using Levels, Curves, and Brightness/Contrast
* Embedding an RGB image in a Lab composition
* Boosting shadows and dimming highlights
* Changing colors with photorealistic results

Duration: 6.5 hours

Professional Photoshop: The Classic Guide to Color Correction

Author: Dan Margulis
Type:Paperback
Notes:

The commonsense, by-the-numbers approach of Professional Photoshop has shaped the workflows of a generation of Photoshop experts. This new edition, the first in nearly five years, is completely updated for the age of digital photography. It continues the book’s tradition of introducing astoundingly effective, previously unknown methods of image enhancement. The original photographs found in the book come from a variety of professional sources, and all correction exercises are on the included CD. Professional Photoshop has changed radically from edition to edition, and this time is no exception—with almost 90 percent new content and completely overhauled coverage of curves, channel blending, and sharpening.Professional Photoshop offers a full explanation of:

* How curves bring out detail in the most important areas of the image
* A comprehensive strategy for blending channels to create deeper, stronger images
* The strengths and weaknesses of CMYK, LAB, and RGB, and when to use each one
* The first detailed look at the Shadow/Highlight command—and even more sophisticated ways to enhance contrast in the lightest and darkest parts of the image
* Sharpening strategies, in three full chapters, including the innovative hiraloam method (High Radius, Low Amount). Plus, a fiendishly effective method of merging hiraloam and conventional un-sharp masking
* The realities—and the politics—of preparing files for commercial offset printing and how to deal with colors that are out of the press’s gamut
* What Camera Raw and similar acquisition modules can offer
* Typical problems of digital captures that were not found in the age of film— and how to correct for them


Book Info

Extensively revised edition covers through Photoshop 7 and continues the tradition of introducing astoundingly effective, previously unknown methods. Softcover. CD-ROM included. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Vanity Fair; The Portraits:A Century of Iconic Images

Title | Vanity Fair: The Portraits: A Century of Iconic Images
Author | Graydon Carter and David Friend
Type | Book
Notes | Vanity Fair: The Portraits brings together 300 iconic portraits from Vanity Fair’s 95-year history in a remarkable book that captures the image of modern fame—the magical thing that happens when individual talent and beauty (and sometimes genius) is caught in the spotlight of popular curiosity and passion. The photographers—from Edward Steichen and Cecil Beaton to Annie Leibovitz and Mario Testino—are a glittering and celebrated group themselves. Their portraits have become the iconic likenesses of the best-known figures from the worlds of art, film, music, sports, business, and politics.

From legends such as Pablo Picasso, Amelia Earhart, Cary Grant, and Katharine Hepburn to the stars, writers, athletes, style icons, and titans of business and politics of today, Vanity Fair: The Portraits offers an authoritative roster of talent and glamour in the 20th century.

About the Authors:
Graydon Carter is the editor of Vanity Fair. David Friend is editor of creative development at Vanity Fair and author of Watching the World Change.

Edward Steichen: In High Fashion: The Conde Nast Years, 1923-1937

Title | Edward Steichen: In High Fashion: The Conde Nast Years, 1923-1937
Author | William A. Ewing
Type | Book
Notes | The most extensive collection of Steichen's legendary Vogue and Vanity Fair work ever brought to the public.

Edward Steichen was already a famous painter and photographer in America and abroad when, in early 1923, he was offered the most prestigious position in photography's commercial domain: that of chief photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair.

Over the next fifteen years, Steichen would produce a body of work of unequaled brilliance, dramatizing and glamorizing contemporary culture and its achievers in politics, literature, film, sport, dance, theater, opera, and the world of high fashion. Here are iconic images of Gloria Swanson, Gary Cooper, Greta Garbo, and Charlie Chaplin as well as numerous other celebrities drawn from an archive of more than two thousand original prints. Until now, no more than a handful have been exhibited or published in book form. The photographs of the 1920s and 1930s represent the high point in Steichen's career and are among the most striking creations of twentieth-century photography. 242 illustrations.

What Matter The World's Preeminent Photojournalists and Thinkers Depict Essential Issues of Our Time

Title | What Matters
Author | David Elliot Cohen
Type | Hardcover
Notes |
For more than a century, photography has revealed truths, exposed lies, advanced the public discourse, and inspired people to demand change. Socially conscious pioneers with cameras transformed the world—and that legacy lives on in this eye-opening, thought-provoking, and (we hope) action-inducing book. Like Jacob Riis’s How the Other Half Lives, Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, and Jonathan Schell’s The Fate of the Earth before it, we believe that What Matters will fundamentally alter the way we see and understand the human race and our planet.
What Matters asks: What are the essential issues of our time? What are the pictures that will spark public outrage and spur reform? The answer appears in 18 powerful, page-turning stories by the foremost photojournalists of our age, edited by The New York Times best-selling author/editor David Elliot Cohen (A Day in the Life and America 24/7 series), and featuring trenchant commentary from well-recognized experts and thinkers in appropriate fields. Photographer Gary Braasch and climate-change guru Bill McKibben provide A Global Warming Travelogue that takes us from ice caves in Antarctica to smoke-spewing coal plants in Beijing. Brent Stirton and Peter A. Glick examine a Thirsty World, chronicling the daily search for clean water in non-developed countries. James Nachtwey and bestselling poverty expert Jeffrey D. Sachs look at the causes of, and cures for, global poverty in The Bottom Billion. Stephanie Sinclair and Judith Bruce present the preteen brides of Afghanistan, Nepal, and Ethiopia.

Sometimes the juxtaposition of photographs can be startling: Shop ‘til We Drop, Lauren Greenfield’s images of upscale consumer culture, starkly contrast with Shehzad Noorani’s Children of the Black Dust—child laborers in Bangladesh, their faces blackened with carbon dust from recycled batteries.

The combination of compelling photographs and insightful writing make this a highly relevant, widely discussed book bound to appeal to anyone concerned about the crucial issues shaping our world. What Matters is, in effect, a 336-page illustrated letter to the next American president about the issues that count. It will inspire readers to do their part—however small—to make a difference: to help, the volume includes extensive What You Can Do sections with a menu of web links and effective actions readers can take now. This year give What Matters.

About the Author:
DAVID ELLIOT COHEN is co-creator of the renowned Day in the Life and America 24/7 series of photojournalism books. Four of these volumes were New York Times bestsellers. Several others were national and international bestsellers. A graduate of Yale University, Cohen has appeared on most major US news programs. His award-winning books have been featured on the covers of Time and Newsweek, in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today among many other periodicals worldwide. His pro bono books have benefited victims of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, AIDs education programs in Africa and most recently, AIDS orphans in Uganda.

Neil Leifer: The Golden Age of American Football, 1958-1978 [SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION]

Author | Neil Leifer and Jim Murray
Type | Book
Notes | The best of sports photographer Neil Leifer's 10,000 rolls of football pictures, including hundreds of previously unpublished images. Presented in a custom slipcase and limited to a total of 1,500 copies signed by the photographer, this XL edition is a companion to Neil Leifer s instant sell-out success, Ballet in the Dirt: The Golden Age of Baseball, published by TASCHEN in 2007.

In 1958, sports photographer Neil Leifer took the picture that remains one of his most famous to this day. The day he got the shot Alan Ameche s game-winning Sudden Death touchdown was Leifer s 16th birthday. This game, called The Greatest Ever Played, signaled football s emergence as America s new national pastime; formerly half-empty stadiums welcomed sold-out crowds seemingly overnight while football surpassed pro baseball and college football in national television ratings. Starting then, on any given Sunday Leifer was most likely shooting a football game somewhere in America. His 1961 photo of legendary Giants quarterback Y. A.Tittle dropping back to pass landed Leifer his first cover for Sports Illustrated and cemented his close connection to the sport.

While best known for his iconic photograph of Muhammad Ali towering over a fallen Sonny Liston, and for the enormous diversity of subjects he covered in and out of the sports world, it is his football pictures Leifer considers his best. This collection represents the best of his best, culled from over 10,000 rolls of film on the sport, including hundreds of previously unpublished pictures. It s impossible to conceive of Peyton Manning hovering over an impromptu wood fire on the sidelines during a blizzard, but Leifer captured Tittle s Giants doing exactly that during the coldest game in his living memory (the 1962 Championship in New York, a game far colder than the famous Ice Bowl ). From Vince Lombardi s Green Bay Packers dynasty to the Miami Dolphins' perfect season in 1972 to the Minnesota Vikings' terrifying Front Four the Purple People Eaters they re all here; and so is Bobby Layne, a holdout from the pre-face mask leatherhead days.

Following an introduction assembled from the best football columns of the era by famed sports columnist Jim Murray, this collection is divided into four chapters: On Any Sunday is Leifer s homage to the game. The Legends includes heroes like Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Namath, Dick Butkus, Frank Gifford, and Mean Joe Greene. The Coaches delves into the victories on and off the field of immortal coaches Vince Lombardi, John Madden, Tom Landry, Weeb Ewbank, and others. Finally, The Big Game traces the major championship games from 1958 through Superbowl XII. The in-depth captions put the images into their historical context, making the book highly accessible and informative.

About the Authors:
By 1960, at age 17, native New Yorker Neil Leifer, had his first pictures published in Sports Illustrated and he was on his way. He went on to create over 200 covers for SI, Time and People; and photographed 15 Olympic Games, 4 World Cups, 17 Kentucky Derbies, 15 Masters Tournaments, countless World Series, the first 12 Super Bowls, and every major heavyweight championship title boxing match since Floyd Patterson fought Ingemar Johansson in 1960, as well as Muhammad Ali's entire career. Today he produces and directs films, in addition to the occasional photo shoot.

Jim Murray was a Hartford, Connecticut, native and 1943 Trinity College graduate. He worked at the New Haven Register and Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, and was TIME Inc.'s Hollywood correspondent, a founding father of Sports Illustrated, and sports columnist for the Los Angeles Times for 37 years. Murray was inducted into Cooperstown's Baseball Hall of Fame writers' wing in 1988 and won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary in 1990. He died in 1998.

Title | The Life of a Photograph

Notes | Drawing on 40 years of fieldwork, The Life of a Photograph takes readers on assignment and inside the heart of a master photographer to witness the process of making a truly great picture. This exquisite book is organized by the known and unexpected themes of Abell’s work, ranging from his sensitive Portraits, beautiful Land, Sea, Sky and thought-provoking Wild Life to the surprising Just Looking (quirky scenes encountered on assignment),On the Road (photographs taken from automobiles), and The Built World (human impacts on pristine land). Anecdotes, explanations, and intriguing glimpses behind the scenes reveal the evolution—picture by picture and thought by thought—of some of the world’s most interesting and recognized images and many never-before seen photographs as well. Selections cover geography and wildlife from the Arctic to the Amazon, and cultures from Australia to Japan to the American West. A beautiful gift for everyone who loves fine photography, this volume is not to be thumbed through once—it is a treasure that will be savored over and over again.

Title | Athlete
Author | Walter Iooss
Type | Hardcover
Notes | After 47 years behind the camera Walter Iooss Jr. can't quite put a number on the countless sports subjects he has photographed throughout his career. But whoever the portrait, whatever the setting, a common theme runs through his personal archive: All are athletes lured into the joy of sport. In a 256-page panoramic collection, Iooss handpicks more than 150 of his classic images--dozens never before published--to create a cinematic compilation of his work.

For Iooss--whose efforts have graced the cover of Sports Illustrated nearly 300 times--every picture really does tell a story. Here he highlights his favorites with behind-the-scenes anecdotes. For the famous "Blue Dunk" overhead shot of Michael Jordan taken in 1987, Iooss personally painted the parking lot, stationed himself in a cherry picker and waited for the shot. While shadowing Tiger Woods from hole to hole in Carlsbad in 2000, the photographer purposefully wore dark glasses the entire day so as to not look in the golfer's eyes. And in 2003, Iooss literally couldn't sleep the night before reuniting Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier for their first photo together in 30 years. In a lyrical display, we witness a creative evolution as Iooss continually discovers new ways and approaches to capture the athletic spirit. Iooss's passion, power and perspective are clearly at play in this artful package.

Title | Lighting and Photographing Transparent and Translucent Surfaces: A Comprehensive Guide to Photographing Glass, Water, and More
Author | Glenn Rand
Type | Book

This is just a couple weeks late for the Transparency challenge. Amazon says that it will ship starting January 7. I got a pre-publication copy a couple days ago. Disclaimer: Glenn is a friend of mine and two of my photographs appear in the book.

I'm impressed with it. There is lots of discussion about general principles and plenty of explanations of individual photographs with diagrams of the lighting setup.

--DanW

Here are the publisher's blurbs:

Whether shooting a pair of eyeglasses for an advertising campaign or a glistening pond for an outdoor wedding portrait, this reference offers complete guidance for capturing transparent and translucent materials, such as plastic, glass, water, and more. Starting with the most basic approaches to lighting glass and other materials, and progressing into strategies for shooting more complex situations, this resource offers technical tips and creative guidance for making each object look its very best, as well as detailed lighting diagrams. Rather than providing a single step-by-step approach, the wide range of this book provides an education that serves as a springboard for solving a variety of reflective-lighting challenges. There are numerous examples of the different lighting techniques, as well as tips for using White-Line and Black-Line effects and working with Photoshop in the studio. With detailed captions and a host of illustrations that reinforce the key concepts, this reference provides a wealth of information, whether on shoot for a client or photographing nature as a personal hobby.
