Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch 'The digital Negative' ist die fundierteste und beste Anleitung zum Thema Entwicklung von digitalen Daten in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) aund Lightroom, welches ich bisher in den Händen hielt !

Schewe beschreibt erst alle relevanten Einstellungen von ACR und Lr, die Einfluss auf die Entwicklung von digitalen Daten haben und geht danach auf die 'Rettung von misslungenen Bildern', respektive auf Problemfällen der digitalen Fotografie wie ausgebrannter Himmel, etc. ein. Dabei können alle Beispielbilder kostenlos als DNGs beim Author herunter geladen werden, sodaß alle Prozesschritte, die Schewe beschreibt, auf dem eigenen Recher nachvollzogen werden können.

Darüberhinaus bemerkt man die Nähe des Authors zum Entwickerteam der Software, sodaß alle 'Kniffe' bei der Entwicklung digitaler Daten aufgezeigt und bestens erklärt werden. Darüberhinaus wird noch eine Menge Hintegrundwissen vermittelt, sodaß man sich nach der Lektüre dieses Buches fragt, ob andere Authoren, die ebenfalls Bücher zu dieser Thematik veröffentlichen, überhaupt über tiefgründiges Wissen verfügen.

Vermittelt werden die vielen Informationen in einem lockeren, wenig dogmatischen Art und Weise, sodaß beim Lesen des Buches regelrecht Spaß aufkommt, jedoch der rote faden an keiner Stelle verloren geht. Man lernt, ohne es zu merken, respektive ohne das es einen anstrengt !

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very good book. If you are wanting to improve your knowledge of processing raw files, you should buy this book. It is very well written in an easy to understand manner and with just the right amount of humor. The author gives a little information on the development history of Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw which I really enjoyed reading. But, the best part of the book is the teaching on the subject of raw files, and the processing of these files. There are lots of sample images, even raw files that you can download from the companion website after purchasing the book. You can open these raw files in Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw and investigate/study/examine all of the changes that the author made in his processing of the image. This is like being able to "look over his shoulder". Being able to do this made it much easier for me to understand not only the technique, but the reason for making the change by "undoing" the adjustment to see the "before" and then reapplying to see the "after". This is a big plus for me.

I highly recommend buying this book.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Wenn ich dieses Buch in die Hand nehme, erinnert es mich von der Vermittlung des Wissens, der Manipulationsmöglichkeiten des digitalen Negativs stark an Ansel Adams "Das Negativ".

Lightroom und Photoshop teilen sich ein mächtiges Werkzeug, den Raw Converter.
Schewe gibt einen kurzen Abriß über die Entwicklung (2x Danke, erstens für die Information und zweitens keine Seitenschinderei mit ausufernden Rückblicken) desselben, und dann geht's auch schon los.

Schwerpunkte:
als Basis:
was tut was von den Reglern.
Danach fortgeschrittene Techniken wie:
unterbelichtete Bilder
Korrekturen global und lokal (und vor allem wie!)
Umwandlung in Schwarz Weiß
Schärfen

Persönliche Anmerkung: aus welchem Grund auch immer hab ich den Korrekturpinsel gemieden.
Jetzt gehört er bei vielen Bildern dazu.

Ein Buch, das bei der Bearbeitung immer in Griffweite liegt.
Empfehlung für jeden, der sich weniger mit Massenverarbeitung, mehr mit dem Herauskitzeln letzter Details beschäftigt, garniert mit den Erklärungen, warum. Also Adobe ein bißchen unter den Rock schauen.

Getting the Most from the Image 27. September 2012
Von Conrad J. Obregon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
First there was Photoshop that became the gold standard for photo processing. Then, when digital photography caught on, Adobe added the Camera Raw plug-in. More recently Adobe offered photographers Lightroom, a piece of software designed from the ground up for photographers, although many image smiths have found it useful to process first in Lightroom and then finish up in Photoshop. Jeff Schewe now presents us with a book that concentrates on how to manipulate images with these pieces of software to get the best possible photograph.

After an examination of the nature of the digital image and a history and overview of raw processing, he addresses the fundamental controls in Lightroom and Camera Raw, which offer, for the most part, the same features, although Lightroom offers a more convenient interface as well as other features, like archiving and website creation. Schewe emphasizes what is accomplished rather than the particular look of a control, and while he generally leads with Lightroom, also shows how to accomplish the same tasks with Camera Raw. Next he shows how to use these controls with particular examples, doing more with Lightroom than most people would even consider, to get the "hero" image. He then goes on to explain how to follow-up in Photoshop for those extra tweaks that are not readily available in Lightroom or Camera Raw. (Most of the Photoshop discussion is about Schewe's own tweaks, rather than general instruction in Photoshop.) There is little discussion of primary adjustments, or layers, or making selections, except to show how a particular image can be enhanced in Photoshop. He finishes the book with a general discussion of workflow.

Because there are so many similar features in Lightroom, Camera Raw and the main Photoshop, such as tonal adjustment, it might be easy to confuse the uses of each piece of software for similar tasks, but Schewe does a good job of distinguishing the applications. His writing style is clear and friendly with the lightest dash of humor.

I was quite amazed at the amount of manipulation of the image that Schewe does. Before reading this book, I barely ever used the contrast control in Lightroom, but now I understand why it is near the top of the basic panel, and am freer with that slider. Moreover, some of the local adjustments that he makes in raw processing, I would certainly have left for Photoshop, but now I am convinced are worth trying with Lightroom. I have found that to make these edits without frustration in Lightroom rather than Photoshop requires a powerful computer, but Schewe even suggests ways to speed up Lightroom processing.

Although the publisher suggests this book falls into the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, I would not start out a beginner with this book. However, once the photographer has learned the basics of image processing, this book will certainly help to teach one to get the most out of the software for better images.

Must-Have Book for Processing Raw Files 4. Oktober 2012
Von Vissi D'arte - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have read many instructional photography books over the years, including several on 'digital photography' and four books on using Lightroom 2,3,and 4. I have kept none of those books except for one - a reference book on Lightroom 4 by Martin Evening (I use it as a reference - I haven't read the 'whole thing' :-). However I still found some nitty gritty details of processing raw files a bit mysterious for me. The Digital Negative has given me insights and a clarity (if you'll pardon the Lightroom pun) that I didn't have before. This book is a keeper. My focus is on Lightroom but the book is equally useful for Photoshop and Camera Raw, as the book covers those tools as well as the pertinent raw processing functions in Lightroom.

I would recommend it for all photographers who shoot in raw and have progressed beyond the very beginning stage of digital photography. Even for beginners I would recommend buying it and saving it as it will come in handy after the first few attempts at processing raw files. It provides insights and tips on the details of processing that I have not found in other books. And I should say, it provides meaningful and useful details and tips!

Contrary to another reviewer of this book I found it to be well written. The style might be a bit different from some other writers but I find the points to be well made and easy to understand, for me at any rate.

I give this book my very highest recommendation.

The rambling professor you had in school 27. Februar 2013
Von Peter Henry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
At first, I was going to give this 3 stars. The first 25% of the book is a random walk of interesting, but not particularly useful facts and information. Jeff's description of CMOS and CCD sensors is horribly convoluted, and in general is not really correct. (I've been a semiconductor professional for almost 30 years and been involved with both CMOS and CCD imager R&D) There are several other points about detailed hardware that are wrong. But, they are pretty much extraneous to the theme of the book. Many of the illustrations through here seem random, or are obvious and redundant screenshots.

Once Jeff gets into the meat of the material though, the book picks up nicely. Here, the diversions into trivia become valuable as he explains some of the history and rationale for things being the way they are. Jeff's book doesn't try to be a recipe book - one of my complaints about Scott Kelby's books. Rather, he explains what various functions and controls do and often a bit of their algorithms, and discusses why, when and how he uses them with some solid examples. This helps me much more than simply being told to move a bunch of sliders to specific values and voila! A finished photo. Great. Next time I have the same photo I can do it again. Jeff avoids this practice quite well, and gives the reader plenty of material to help you figure out how to manage your digital negatives on your own, and why you might choose certain manipulation a and techniques.

The electronic edition does better than most in associating captions with pictures. Jeff uses a different font for captions that helps when the captions do get lost on another page. This book does need a color reader.

Overall, after slogging through the initial parts of the book and wondering if I had wasted my money, I was very pleasantly surprised with the rest of it as I learned much more of the philosophy behind the systems and Jeff did a solid job of giving the mechanics and philosophy of manipulating your digital negatives. I would not recommend this as a primary book on Lightroom, although it comes close. Despite my criticism of Scott Kelby's book earlier, it is a great intro to using Lightroom, and would be a better place to start. This book is definitely not a Photoshop manual. But it does help you to build a working system for yourself that incorporates all of the elements. And it helps dramatically in understanding why the systems work the way they do. This is a solid "intermediate" book for those developing their own digital photography workflows.

Essential to improve your images, technique & workflow 14. Oktober 2012
Von Steven L. Hargrove - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Jeff Schewe's latest offering, The Digital Negative, is a no-brainer must-read. Jeff has been there from the early days of Photoshop, Camera Raw & Lightroom and worked with folks like Bruce Fraser and the crew at Pixel Genius, so you'd be hard pressed to find anybody around who knows the ins and outs of these software packages more fully. I've watched The Luminous Landscape's videos featuring Jeff and Michael Reichmann, which are very good, but I've always seen them and wanted to ask more questions after watching each segment. This book pretty much answers all those questions and then some. The insights offered are right on point, and fill you in not only on the procedures for working with the software, but also enlighten you as to how and why each piece works the way it does, with suggestions for improving your image quality & workflow. The book is exhaustive in the best sense of the word, taking the time to fully inform you about every important aspect of Lightroom, Camera Raw & Photoshop, and more importantly, how they "play" with each other and how to use that knowledge to make them work together most effectively & efficiently. The chapters are dense, each filled with a lot of information, so it's not a fast and breezy read by any means. That said, the rewards of going slowly, paying attention, and re-reading dense sections (aka studying the material) are immense. After spending a couple hours with just the book's first few chapters, I've made important and welcome changes to my workflow and my techniques are much improved. Which is exactly the reason you should run, not walk, to buy this book! And I say this as a person who has used Photoshop since version 6 (before the CS era) and has used Lightroom and Camera Raw since their inception. Thanks, Jeff, for sharing your knowledge and helping us all be better photographers.

Doesn't know its audience 15. Oktober 2013
Von Alan Shi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
'The Digital Negative' is a highly technical book focusing on digital image creation with specific focus on post-processing. There are some really good pieces of information in this book, some that you're not likely to find elsewhere, but this book manages to fall flat because it really doesn't know who its audience is. The book starts out like it's going to be a 100-level course--a primer for keen students, but with no prior background--but it's quickly clear that there are assumptions all over the place about knowledge you must have about a myriad of different topics.

First the good parts: Schewe has worked with many insiders at Adobe, so he has a truly unique perspective, that you won't find elsewhere. There are several stories he relays in the book that describe the historical context of a given feature that is fairly interesting. In addition, Schewe has a huge breadth of knowledge, and in this one volume, you'll find a large variety of really excellent technical information not usually found together in a single book. The trouble is, in many cases, unless you already knew something about (in fact in some cases, know a lot about) a given topic already, you probably won't really understand everything being explained. Yet at the same time, other parts of the book are more garden-variety introductions (like what such-and-such a slider does in lightroom). So, depending on who you are, different parts of this book are likely to alienate you, but in most cases it'll alienate almost everyone at some point.

This curious style of writing shows up right at the beginning. The chapter is entitled 'What is a Digital Negative', and starts off by talking about what a raw capture is. You'd think this chapter walks you through the process start to finish, but it jumps around immediately which will confuse any novice. For example, the term 'demosaicing' is used on the second page of the book, before even describing a Bayer array, or what that process even means.

Things get worse on the third page, where the book talks about camera sensor types, and gives a technically-accurate, but basically irrelevant definition of what a CMOS sensor is. For this kind of book, you just want to know that there are two types, and basically how they differ, in terms of what it means to your images. Instead, Schewe gives a definition of a CMOS sensor that I swear, must come straight out of my third-year electronic circuits text that I studied for my engineering undergraduate degree: "CMOS circuits use a combination of P-type and N-type metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) to implement logic gates in signal-processing equipment...". Do you know what P and N-type semiconductors are? Do you care? Does knowing this help you understand photography better? Honestly, this should have been completely left out and replaced with more relevant information.

Another example is an almost-good explanation of linear capture (e.g. how sensors capture information differently than how the eye sees), but the text throws around the term 'gamma' like you already know what it is. Of course, if you don't (or only really know that it darkens and brightens an image, without understanding the encoding or why it matters), you're really not going to really 'get' what's being explained.

On the good side, ETTR (exposing to the right) is explained pretty well, as well as considerations about noise and ISO. There's also an interesting back story on the Adobe RGB colour space and some other technical tidbits in the first chapter that are certainly worth reading.

Chapter two is an introduction to the role of Camera Raw, Lightroom, Bridge, and Photoshop with some interesting historical information along the way. This is certainly worth reading, but not essential.

The third chapter is your fairly typical material describing the basics of Camera Raw or Lightroom. Schewe basically takes you through each knob in the develop module to describe what the setting does, and shows some sample images to illustrate various effects. There's a decent section on DNG profiles and colour calibration, although there is a much better explanation in Lee Varis' book, "Skin" (which I highly recommend).

Chapter 4 is supposed to cover 'Advanced Raw Processing', but frankly it's really just a few images where Schewe tells you what sliders he pushed (literally showing you what values he used--which is basically irrelevant!). This whole chapter is basically filler material. There's no real value you'll gain from reading this, except perhaps getting an idea of how multiple tools/effects are combined in a real image. Real insights in this area come from experimentation, though, and not the kind of literal regurgitation of slider values presented here.

One annoyance that starts to show up a lot here, and throughout the book, is the repeated mention of the Phase One 645DF with P65+ camera back, that Schewe used to capture some of his images. I have no idea why this detail keeps appearing, except perhaps to remind you that expensive equipment is being used.

Chapter 5 is about Photoshop, but it's definitely not meant for the beginner. This is another odd chapter in the sense that almost all the information here is something you'll likely already know, or will be something that will likely be way out of context for you. For example, one of the first things described is colour range selections. Yet Schewe already talks casually about layers and masks, so he's clearly already assuming you know something about PS (and colour range, and other selections are usually among the earlier things you learn). If you know how to use PS already, you might learn a trick or two (like progressive sharpening), but otherwise this chapter is basically just a hodge podge of material neither meant for the beginner nor the expert, so you're likely to be alienated one way or the other. I'd recommend a dedicated book on Photoshop one way or the other, instead of what you get in this book.

The last chapter is on workflow, and there are some sound, but basic, tips including information on performance considerations for lightroom and PS. Nothing remarkable, but there's some solid advice inside.

Overall, this could have been a great book if it was either way longer or way shorter. It'd be better as a longer book if it filled in all the missing details that come across as huge gaps in the book as-is. It'd be better as a shorter book if it just assumed you knew a fair bit, and just intended to present more arcane, technical, or otherwise hard-to-find information in one place and omitted the stuff for beginners. But put together as a mix of both, this book comes across as overly eclectic and somewhat disorganized. I'd say if you really want to build a solid technical foundation, reading several other books instead of (or at least before) reading this one would serve you best.
