There are three articles I believe would be of great interest to this forum. I’ll quote from the PS user website:
Making Your Images Sing:
In his article, Dave discusses image composition with people. He says that “both the ‘art‘ and ‘craft’ of the photographic profession must rely on what we can first accomplish in the camera. Photoshop is for polishing, not fixing the result.”—David A. Ziser
A photographer uses light to control and compress the brightness range in an image so that subtle shadows and highlights shine through. Kevin shows us how to use exposure, contrast, and the quantity or quality of light to let the light shine through.—Kevin Ames
The Fine Art of Printing:
There’s been more change in photography in the past 10 years than in its entire history. One of the fastest evolving sectors is digital printing.—John Paul Caponigro
Usually there are one or two items of interest in each issue of this magazine but for me rarely enough to justify the price. In this case there might be since there are lots of tips besides the above named articles. Pick it up and thumb through it to see.
Paranoia does not preclude persecution.
