Want to offer your clients more to chose from? Here's how: award winning photographer, Christopher Grey, has developed techniques to enhance portrait photography, using the creative applications available in Photoshop. Photoshop Effects for Portrait Photographers contains detailed explanations of how to replicate many darkroom techniques with Photoshop (Dodging, Burning, Vignettes, etc.) as well as camera and earlier technology techniques (Short Focus, High Speed Film Grain, Hand Coloring, etc.). Grey has also developed almost two dozen ways to replicate traditional painterly and illustrative techniques such as Rough Charcoal Sketch, Wet Watercolor, Silkscreen, and Oil Chalk. Images available for downloading at http://www.ChristopherGrey.com/booksamples.

Key Features
* Each effect is covered in a 2-4 page full color spread for easy comprehension and step-by-step directions
* Effects built with Photoshop CS2, but almost all will work with any version of PS that supports Layers
* Takes some of Photoshop features that are not quite up to par and gives you the tips to take the effect to the next level

Industry Reviews

"A manual for portrait photographers introduces a range of useful techniques designed to enhance images by using the creative applications available in Photoshop, explaining step by step how to replicate the techniques used in a darkroom with the image processing software to create a variety of special effects." - Paper Clips (Oct. 2006)

"Loaded with high quality illustrations and easy to follow step by step tutorials... it covers some of the best and most often used techniques for going beyond the straight portrait." - Apogee Photo Magazine, November 2006

You'll find a number of interesting techniques in this book...combining these techniques in a slim volume aimed at portrait photographers is an interesting idea.-Peter Bauer, Photoshop user, Feb 2007

"This book is a great tool whether you're a whiz with a camera or not...It has a great down-to-earth approach, without a patronising tone in sight. The author and self-confessed 'Photoshop geek boy' (his words) keeps things simple, omitting all the unnecessary 'Click OK' commands so often littered throughout tutorial-based books...If people are your thing and you prefer a no-fuss approach to tutorials, this book will keep you occupied with a host of projects" - Photoshop Creative
