The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook

From Import to Output by Juergen Gulbins and Uwe Steinmueller

What do you do after shooting all those photos? This is what the new book, The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook: From Import to Output, clearly answers. Sometimes, it’s not just simply shooting and going directly to the lab for printing – the digital process is a little more involved than that – there is post process for more serious digital photographers.

Authored by two experienced digital photographers, Juergen Gulbins and Uwe Steinmueller, the book provides a step-by-step guide through the photographic workflow, from image capture, editing, and asset management, all the way to the perfect photographic print. Those stunning photos you see in magazines and billboards didn’t come out like that straight from the camera, there’s post process to make your photos really shine.

The workflow presented in this book focuses on RAW images, which will give you maximum quality and flexibility, and is based on two of the most popular and powerful software tools: Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook (Rocky Nook, 552 pages, $50) is recommended reading for both aspiring amateur and professional photographers, as well as students of photography.
