New Masters of Photoshop is an amazing book that I'll be reviewing on this post and sharing the best parts of it. If you like photoshop and learning from tutorials this is a must have, check it out.
New Master of Photoshop is a book that was released back in 2003 right when I was highly exploring and creating all sorts of graphics with Photoshop with the intention to learn as much as possible. So when I found out about this book I couldn't resist but to get it.
The book had the intention of
"showcase of Masters who use Photoshop, and Masters of Photoshop use. The photographers, animators, artists, and designers assembled here have a myriad of different skills: some manipulate, some animate, some create from scratch. All of them produce remarkable, beautiful things. In these pages, the authors will demonstrate examples of their print work, web work, public work, and private work, explaining the techniques they use to achieve their results. More than that, though, they'll tell you how they think: who their influences are, where their ideas come from, and how they find inspiration when the well has run dry."and this is exactly what they did, the book is a selection of 19 masters (photographers, animators, artists, and designers) and each person took a chapter to talk about their experiences on the past, how they started working with photoshop, along with their work being displayed and by the end of each chapter each person finished off with a nice tutorial with some great techniques.
What I learn from this book wasn't only a bunch of different techniques in photoshop but I actually got to know how all these 19 masters started they journeys and with a lot of work and a lot of practice they got to the where they are. That's truly inspired me to learn more and more and the tutorials are great which makes this book a complete piece and very well recommended to anyone willing to learn.
