About the Book
I have over 50 years experience as both a commercial and fine-art photographer. I’ve also written 27 published technical books on computer graphics. These include the best selling first and second editions of The Digital Photography Bible (Wiley) and Digital Photography: Expert Techniques (O’Reilly Media). I have done editorial photography for TV Guide and The Los Angeles Times, advertising campaigns for American President Lines, Strega Liquers, the Fluer Corporation, and publicity photos for Capital Records and Universal Pictures. As a fine art photographer, I have exhibited my work at art festivals, galleries, and cafes. I did the photography, composite work, and digital painting for two posters (1998 and 2005) for the Sausalito Art Festival (the nation’s most profitable) and both years won the coveted Sunshine Artist Magazine award for Poster of the Year.
