We thought of all those which never touched a computer and which want to begin in the final improvement from photographs and creation from diaporamas from very great quality. We chose to illustrate the best software available on the market to carry out these essential stages for creation with digital photography. A CD is offered with the book. We placed at your disposal many free software or valid for a 30 days period. For those which do not have digital photographs yet we placed at their disposal 12 photographs for the discovery. We also put a music composed by an American type-setter of reputation, Chris Snidow. The photographs and the music will enable you to carry out your first diaporama. We put our experiment of professional photographers in the chapters of work on the digital photographs to enable you to arrive quickly at results of a very great quality.
Isabelle and Amar Guillen are two photographers specializing in underwater, wildlife, and landscape photography. In 1987, their photographic adventure began while they both prepared for a degree in computer engineering. The visual beauty offered by the sumptuous surrounding landscapes and the wildlife held within began (and continues) to be their source of inspiration. This has led them to entirely devote themselves to a professional photographic career, allowing them to share their contemplative and artistic interpretation of nature. For the last fifteen years, they have photographed both the animals and their terrestrial and underwater natural landscapes. Their photographic scenes are animated by the infinite mysteries hidden in nature.
Through their photographic gaze of nature, they strive to highlight the importance of its conservation. Isabelle and Amar live and exhibit between France and the United States, both of which supply wildlife, landscapes, and cultures, providing inspiration for the Guillen's work. Isabelle and Amar have published several books including "Lights and Colors of the Charente-Maritime Coast", "Reflections of Haute-Saintonge", and "The Secrets of Underwater Photography ".
