Thank You!

I owe thanks to the many people who made this book possible. My first vote of thanks must go to Thomas Knoll, first for creating Photoshop, second for building Camera Raw, and third for taking the time to provide feedback on the chapters while they were under construction and for preventing me from making a number of egregious errors. Thanks also go to my other peer reviewers. Russell Preston Brown not only provided his unique insight but came up with the idea of doing this book in the first place. Jeff Schewe patiently pointed out and then did his best to fill the gaps in my understanding of photography, and called me on explanations that made no sense. Any errors or inadequacies that remain in the book are despite their best efforts and are solely my responsibility.

Rebecca Gulick, my editor at Peachpit Press, kept me on track and made me meet my deadlines, with patience and grace; production coordinator Hilal Sala and my other friends at Peachpit turned my virtual creation into a manufactured reality. Tiffany Taylor painstakingly combed the manuscript for typos and inconsistencies, and uncovered an embarrassingly large number of them. Those that may remain are entirely my fault. Caroline Parks provided the comprehensive index to make sure that everyone can find the information they need.

This book would be a much weaker effort without the generosity of the great photographers who contributed their images. To Jim Caulfield, Peter Fox, Greg Gorman, Jay Maisel, Eric Meola, Seth Resnick, Jack Reznicki, Jeff Schewe, David Stoecklein, Michel Tcherevkoff, and Art Wolfe, my thanks and my respect.

Special thanks go to Stephen Johnson and Michael Kieran for being great human beings and even better friends—you contributed to this book in more ways than you know.

Last but by no stretch of the imagination least, I must thank my lovely wife, Angela, not only for putting up with the insane hours, the abstracted gazes, and the glassy incomprehension that greeted perfectly sensible questions like “have you fed the cat?l—but also for making my life such a very happy one.
