Creating memorable photographs is a process that starts before you edit an image in Photoshop, before you capture the image, even before you pick up the camera. You must first approach the subject with the proper sense of perception, with the ability to visualize the finished print before you commit a scene to pixels, but still be flexible and spontaneous. Master fine art photographer Vincent Versace has spent his career learning and teaching the art of perception and how to translate it into stunning images. In Welcome to Oz 2.0 — a completely rewritten update of the book’s first edition — he delves into what it means to approach digital photography cinematically, to use your perception, your camera, and Photoshop to capture the movement of life in a still image. Adapt your workflow to the image so you always know how best to use your tools Turn a seemingly impossible photograph scenario into a successful image Practice “image harvesting” to combine the best parts of many captures to create an optimum final result Discover the importance of bokeh — not only how to use it in order to control how the eye travels and sees an image, but also how to realistically create it in post-processing Foreword by Bert Monroy Afterwords by Jay Maisel and David duChemin Includes free software downloads from onOne and Nik worth $250, as well as customized presets for the Wacom Cintiq and Intuos tablets!

The ability to create a stunning black and white image remains one of photography’s greatest and most aspirational skills. Being able to "see" in black and white is an enviable capability, and a well-crafted black and white photograph remains the finest of the fine arts. Master photographer Vincent Versace has spent his career teaching the art of perception and how to translate it into extraordinary black and white images. In From Oz to Kansas: Almost Every Black and White Conversion Technique Known to Man, Versace discusses digital black and white photography–with a nod to traditional film-based techniques. As Versace states, today the goal is "to use what was right and good about silver photography, leaving behind what was limiting, and use what is right and good about digital photography, while avoiding its pitfalls. This is what this book is all about." The reason you must learn "almost every black and white conversion technique known to man" is because, depending on the image–and your goals for it–there are many paths you can take in order to arrive at your final destination. Working through Versace’s techniques will give you the essential knowledge you need, as well as the ability to select the appropriate conversion technique for any image, allowing you to create a black and white image that best and most accurately reflects what you felt at the moment that you pressed the shutter.

When you look at an image, what do you see and feel? What do you want your audience to see and feel when they view your work? In today's digital age, it has become all too easy to randomly click away, without really focusing on what exactly it is that you are trying to capture in your shot. For over fifteen years, Professor Richard Zakia has been helping thousands of photographers hone in on their creative vision through the inspirational, informative text and images included in his classic book, Perception and Imaging. In this updated fourth edition, Professor Zakia continues to share his wisdom in what is so much more than a step-by-step, technical photography instruction manual. Instead, it explores the fundamental act of photography - in other words, seeing - through a combination of technique, history, visual perception, philosophy, and psychology. Photographers of all levels will benefit from the information in this book, because it will help you to think more clearly about what it is that you want to convey in your images, no matter what level you are at in terms of technical skill. Includes inspirational images from some of the world's most well-known photographers, like Henri Cartier-Bresson and Man Ray All new sections on what perception means for your photography in the digital age New coverage of the Rule of Thirds and Contemplative Photography; how can these tools work for you?
