Adobe Photoshop Master Class by John Paul Caponigro

Caponigro is a master of the dream world. His visions are rhythmic, poetic, colorful, and flawless. Some are as grand as a mountain, and others are as finite as raindrops. His book is both a how to do it with Photoshop guide, but a how to get your mind and images working together guide. Published by Adobe, the chapter titles include:

> Calibrate and Characterize
> Selections
> Tone
> The Elements of Photomontage
> One Source, Many Paths
> Color Expression
> The Language of Night
> Reorchestrating Light
> Focus

Jerry N. Uelsmann is a man ahead of his time. Considered one of the 20 most influential photographers of the 20th Century, he is so much more than the conventional idea of a photographer. Yes, he is a great technician, making perfect negatives and prints with conventional film and silver paper since the 1960s. Yes he is a magician in the darkroom, creating techniques that allow him to combine images with as many as eight enlargers. But more importantly, he is a visionary who can create visions in our heads of stirring juxtapositions and scenes from our dreams. His work has been the subject of several books by critics and poets. His work is inspirational.

I enjoy giving a Tupperware party in my home. It gives me a chance to talk to my friends. But really, Tupperware is a homemaker's dream, you save time and money because your food keeps longer.

Suburbia by Bill Owens (Introduction by David Halberstam) - Owens has captured life in a California suburb in the 1970s with more than a hint of irony. The pictures show the way we were, and oh my, it's embarassing. The text is quoted from the subjects, and oh my, it is powerful.

The best way to view images on the internet

The left box above should be pure black, the right box pure white, and there should be distinct but subtle differences between the others. If not, adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor. AOL Users: Some versions of AOL have an optional setting that compresses graphics for faster viewing also makes them blurry. To see images properly you should turn this off. Click "My AOL" at the top of the page, click "Preferences", click "www", click "Graphics", then uncheck "Use Compressed Graphics".
