This is a unique book on creative digital photography, unique because it is not a how-to-do-it book emphasizing procedures as much as a collection of images that are meant to be inspirational, where the viewer can see how ordinary pictures can be transformed into something unique and creative.
All of the images here (over 110 images on 125 pages) are constructed from multiple layers and textures by using image processing software and plug-ins. Small thumbnails accompany each layered image as a convenient way of showing the elements that comprise the final image.
The two photographers created images representing some of their favorite topics such as trees, mannequins, monochromes, travel, insects, flowers, antique autos, abstract designs, and landscape abstractions.
The book is meant to be viewed in horizontal format (although some pictures are vertical). A two-finger gesture expands the page to fill the screen and the pages are flipped using a swipe of the finger at the right side in the typical e-book motion.
