Lightroom and the Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in for Photoshop have changed the way photographers work with images. Shooting in the raw format gives digital photographers complete control over every aspect of image quality. Camera Raw and Lightroom make the process of using raw files easier by providing a standardized way of accessing and working with these "digital negatives." Today serious photographers shoot raw images only. The Digital Negative: Raw Image Processing in Camera Raw, Lightroom, and Photoshopis devoted exclusively to the topic, explaining the advantages and challenges of using Camera Raw or Lightroom to produce magnificent images. The book takes a modern approach to raw image processing, now that raw image processing technology has matured and is firmly entrenched as an essential aspect of digital photography. Renowned photographer and educator Jeff Schewe covers optimizing images in Camera Raw, Lightroom, and Photoshop, with the aim to get the optimal final image. Readers will learn hands-on techniques for exposing and shooting for raw image capture. The author covers the raw processing controls in Camera Raw and Lightroom and developing a raw processing workflow. He also offers Photoshop techniques for perfecting the master image, converting color to B/W, and image processing for panoramic and HDR images. Paying homage to Ansel Adams's seminal book series The Negative, The Print, and The Camera, this book is the first of a two-book series. The second will focus on teaching how to take the optimal image and prepare it for fine art printing.
