    Experimental Digital Photography
    Thanks to the popularity of digital photography and user-generated Internet content, interest in experimental photographic techniques continues to build. This unique guide helps photographers go beyond the snapshot, flex their creative muscles, and push the boundaries of their art. Rick Doble presents a wealth of imaginative concepts, from creating ambience through a mix of flash and available light to panning the camera and zooming the lens during an exposure. He explains how to manipulate time and motion in an image, use inventive white balance methods, and “paint” with light in time exposures. There are even original self-portrait techniques.  Put these procedures in practice and you’ll make photography a riveting, even surreal, art form!
