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.

  • 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 DIGITAL NEGATIVE more than met my expectations. The work is not for the beginner in digital imagery. The scientifically uninformed will have a rough time of it from the get go. I wish I had paid more attention to the physics of light as an undergraduate. And I do wish I had the author's first-hand knowledge of the language, the acronyms and the development of digital photography. I suspect he has to gloss over the rich history of digital image taking to make room for raw image processing. I was made to tread water in the first three chapters. I had to research online many of the matters he introduced. That is what studying is all about - and it feels good to be a student again! Photography as a science is an art unto itself. Photography as art is derived from the depths of human feeling and emotion. I caught onto that early in my reading - here is an artist immersed in the science that brings forth this wonderful technology of image making. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know why and how he does things in raw image processing.

  • 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.
