3.0 out of 5 stars Should be about editing... April 17 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The secret? Photoshop.

I went into this book with a lot of hope of trying to improve my photography. What I got was a book about how to edit something. Everything is post-processed through PS with A LOT of editing. Personally, I'm someone who tries to not rely on much post-editing... which this books does. There are some AMAZING pictures though, all with the work of PS...

If you'd like to see some pretty edited pictures, get the book, otherwise, it's not really a book about how to improve your work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring book July 2 2012
By JeanD
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book presents 93 (if I counted correctly) awe inspiring images already published on 1x.com. Each image is shown on the left page and the right details 1) the thought process that led to the image, 2) relevant technical info, including post processing, and 3) a small bio of the photographer. Although some of the information can already be found on 1x.com, the whole package is very appealing and, at least to me, profoundly inspiring. Well worth the price, in my opinion.

Beautiful pictures. Total eye candy and there are great ideas for trying similar shots of my own. The type of book to leave out and refer to often.
