Experience the highly visual format of the Art of Photoshop: Digital Photography Workshop and learn how to take good source photos and transform them into display-quality digital works of art with visual effects used in Adobe Photoshop. Using the beauty of the Tuscan region of Italy as a backdrop, author and artist/photographer Daniel Giordan, will take you through the steps of how to capture good source materials, how to explore the artistic effect of those images, and how to turn those explorations into richly layered and visually complex artwork using the tools available in Photoshop. This is your chance to look over the author's shoulder and he guides you through a process of creative exploration through which he creates 10 artistic montages. Learn the techniques he uses by working alongside him with the source materials provided on the included CD and then be able to apply those techniques to your source images to create wonderful digital art.
