Author–Photographer James Martin has made significant updates to this third edition of the popular Photography: Outdoors, with an emphasis on bringing your skills up to date with the latest hardware and software. Included is instruction on using Lightroom — a new, more powerful, and much easier to use editing tool than Photoshop — as well as tips for getting the most from popular software such as Adobe’s Creative suite. Other updates, revisions, and/or new topics cover:

• Mirrorless revolution
• “New” state of the art: why medium format still rules
• RaW editors vs. editor/databases
• RaW conversion: aCR, aperture, Capture One, DoX, and camera proprietary
• HDR with Photoshop, Nik, Photomatix, and Lightroom
• Using Adobe Camera Raw, the Lightroom Develop Module, or aperture as your principal editing tool — the 80/20 rule becomes 90/10
• New sharpening and noise reduction tools
• Gigapan and other panorama tools
• RgB Pro color space
• Adobe Cs6 topics and what’s new in the interface for Cs 4, 5, 6
• Content aware Fill and Patch
• Complete non-destructive workfl ow
• Video convergence
• Advanced tool set (what’s available for those who wish to go further)
