    Dan Margulis

    You might already know this - I didn't

    Dan Margulis has a new book, (Published 2013)

    "Modern Photoshop Color Workflow The Quartertone Quandary, the PPW, and Other Ideas for Speedy Image Enhancement"

    Amazon still has a couple left

    His other other books, hold a premier place among my dogged ear books on printing.

    AND as a bonus - Go to iTunes and download Little Al Thomas - doing Rollin & Tumblin' -- enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Dan Margulis

    Hi - Update

    Just got the book, and only looked a couple of videos.

    My feeling is; it is all about the Print, not contact sheets, or jpegs on monitors.

    First I should say, by ALL means we ALL want to get our exposures correct in the camera, but we also all know that's not always possible, (otherwise we might as well leave up to the jpeg settings and be done)

    Second - in my opinion if we want to make images, they way we want, this book is a great tool.

    Third, to get the fast reactions (to the second point) out of the way, this along with some other books, IE, Ansel Adams - "The Print", Margulis's LAB book, Vincent Versace books, John Paul Caponigro, Sebastião Salgado, Abbott, Herb Ritts, Arnold Newman, Dorothea Lange, and so many other greats, teach one thing so important, HOW to realize our vision. The list is endless, to name a few artists, Maxfield Parrish, Norman Rockwell, Hopper, Rembrandt, again an endless list.

    Art in my opinion is a combination, of skill, hard work, attitude, having a vision, and of course execution.
