Catel et Bocquet retracent le destin de la fascinante Joséphine Baker dans un magnifique roman (bio)graphique tout en noir et blanc. En 500 pages, les auteurs nous dévoilent toutes les facettes de cette femme emplie de convictions : muse de nombreux artistes, militante contre la ségrégation raciale, agent du contre-espionnage de la France Libre, mère adoptive d’une douzaine d’enfants venus d’horizons divers… elle était décidément bien plus qu’une danseuse de cabaret affublée d’une ceinture de bananes...
Photographers are just beginning to realize the potential of high dynamic range imaging (HDRI). Now, the newest techniques based on a bracketed series of exposures make it possible to go beyond HDRI: photographers can increase resolution for ultra-sharp, detailed images, and they can extend the depth of field in a way that was never before possible.
Photographic Multishot Techniques provides a thorough introduction and is a hands-on guide to these various techniques. Using a series of example images, the authors explain and illustrate the use of each technique. Included are lessons on HDRI, super-resolution, focus stacking, and stitching images. Moreover, the reader will learn how to effectively combine these various techniques to create amazing images.
Throughout the book, the authors use tools such as Photoshop, PhotoAcute, Photomatix Pro, FDRTools, CombineZM, DOP Detail Extractor, and Helicon Focus to illustrate the workflow with detailed, step-by-step instructions. Most of these tools offer free trial versions that are available for download at the Rocky Nook Website at the book description of "Photographic Multishot Techniques".
Learning to use these cutting-edge techniques is sure to expand the repertoire and improve the photographic skills of the professional, as well as the advanced amateur, photographer.
