“FINDING FOCUS will help you make sharper photographs, but more than that it’ll help you make photographs that help you tell a stronger story and achieve the aesthetic you’re hoping for in your photographs.” – David duChemin.
This ebook merges together the best of both worlds: the Artist and the Geek. Nicole’s insights and hands-on advice zeros you in on the advanced focusing techniques you need to photograph subjects of all kinds (people, groups, animals, still life, macro, landscapes) while at the same time leveraging the element of focus to further develop your visual storytelling.
Then the software gets its turn as she unpacks how to best use sharpening tools in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom and use advanced techniques, like focus staking and adding blur, to your advantage. All of this is backed-up by easy to understand illustrations and detailed descriptions. And no stone is left unturned as Nicole addresses common mistakes helping you make quick work of making clear and stunning photographs.
