About the Author

Rob has served as the group editorial director of all Werner Publication photo magazines (Digital Photo, Outdoor Photographer, and Digital Photo Pro) and has written hundreds of articles about photography and nature, plus a wide range of books. His photography has been published in many magazines, ranging from National Geographic to The Farmer to, of course, Outdoor Photographer and Digital Photo.

More About the Author

I am proud of the work I have done as a photographer, author, naturalist and nature photographer, editor and videographer. I love the natural world, and that can be a native bee in my native plants garden as much as a visit to a national park. I am a husband of a beautiful and smart wife, a father to my outstanding son and daughter, and one who lived in Minnesota most of my life, but now loves the variety and very long growing season of Southern California.

I have written and photographed a lot of books and magazine articles but what is most important to me about them is knowing that I have helped people become better photographers and gain a better connection to nature. I work to help people connect with photography and nature through speaking and as a workshop leader, too. All of this has gained me a Fellow award with the North American Nature Photography Association. Many people knew me as the long-time editor of Outdoor Photographer magazine and I am still connected with them as a contributing editor.

A short list of some of the books I have done: Landscape Photography: From Snapshot to Great Shot, Magic of Digital Landscape Photography, The Magic of Digital Nature Photography, National Geographic Field Guide to Digital Photography, The Power of Black-and-White in Nature Photography and Reports from the Field (an iBook).

My website is at www.robsheppardphoto.com; my blogs are at www.natureandphotography.com and www.mirrorlessnature.com.

Customer Reviews

Easy to understand and to put into practice.
Frank Robertson
Thanks to Rob Sheppard for taking the time to write the answer to the dozens of questions that all of us have when printing photos.
Bob Deffeyes
They're obviously used simply as pretty space filler.

This is a beautiful book, very nicely done. But, having already read quite a bit about color management and inkjet printing, I was hoping for more specific technical details. The author makes many statements which I'm sure are true (I do believe he knows what he's talking about), but aren't illustrated with examples. For example, he says 200 to 360 ppi is the ideal range when sizing an image for printing, and that going over 360 can actually be detrimental. Ok -- how about an example to show exactly what the effect would be? Yes, I can spend the time (and cost) to run my own tests to see, but the book should have done that for me.

I agree with several of the other reviewers - this book is well done but the title is misleading. In my opinion a >complete< guide to Epson should take you through the >complete< process of color digital printing on Epson printers and be littered with actual examples, good and bad, of all the resolution, ink type, paper type, printer model and color management option combinations that produce a digital color print. My copy is going back.

I thought that having Epson's name on the front cover meant this would be a fairly credible book on printing techniques. Guess again. It's filled with many beautiful photos, some better than others, but most have absolutely nothing to do with the text or have any instructional value. They're obviously used simply as pretty space filler. Virtually all space that does have text is devoted to redundant platitudes and generalities, and if you try and suffer through the entire book (as I did) you'll find yourself getting madder and madder that there's no substance to it at all. Even if you wait to the very end. Shame on Epson for having their name on the front cover.

This book had little useful information. The first four or so chapters tell you to start with a good digital image. Well no kidding. There is limited info on managing color profiles, how to set up printing, how to decide between printer managing color or managing from photo editing software, etc. from a logical step by step approach. Good for the beginner but not if you want to set up a true light room and get exhibition quality prints.

I have purchased many books on how to take a good digital photograph and have always been frustrated by the quality of the final printed photograph. ( I have even purchased different printers in an attempt to get the quality I want.) I have tried to find information on the process of connecting photoshop very tightly with the printer. This book has done that for me. I can now print a very good photograph. The information found in this book is not readily available even online. I will say that if you truly want to print a good photograph buy this book. It has definitely made my photography experience better, way better.

If you are looking for the intricacies of the different Epson Printers and their output, like I was, this is not the book. For Beginners in Ink jet printers it is good.

Useless and superficial, filled with generic information. Not technical or useful for printing or troubleshooting. Save your money. Use a good Google search instead. I am very dissapointed.

The content of the book is not indicated in the proposal cover. Weak, very weak for those who need guidance and is starting in the business of digital printing.
If it were possible to return the book.
