I have maintained a website at this domain for over 15 years. This gives me a unique perspective on the evolution of photographic technology grounded in the tradition of old school craft. I have been involved in commercial photography for over 45 years, and started working with computer imaging over 25 years ago. I currently work with photography in conjunction with computer graphics to create images for use in print advertising. My work has been featured on movie posters, video box covers, CD covers, numerous brochures and catalogs. This book has become a must-have reference for every portrait and fashion photographer.

The problem I had though is that everything in the book feels a good 5 years out of date. And the rest of it is highly technical and geared toward the photographer who does ONE special image with a narrow focus. The techniques and everything in the book are laborious and time consuming - but they are also tried and true practices in the retouching industry from the last decade.
If you shoot models or headshots in a studio only, this is a great reference since you likely are going for great images that you can lavish attention on over several hours. If you shoot sessions, e. There are many better methods that are quicker, more efficient, and utilize a stronger Lightroom centric workflow rather than Photoshop.
And it means you can have a life. Any one who has shot outdoors knows that you warm up full sun images a bit more and cool down green images a bit more than neutral. Finally, the book is both heavily technical and yet very basic information is presented. I learned much more and better techniques for good skin tones and color from other sources than this book.
