Many artists hesitate to paint from photographs believing that plein air painting creates a more sensorial experience and results in a batter, more emotionally charged painting. But in this book, photographer and artist Michael Weymouth explains how digital photography can be not only a viable alternative to plein air painting but an important tool in the painting process.

He accomplishes this without doing the deep dive into digital camera functionality that befuddles most users. Instead he creates a user-friendly journey through his own experience, touching on those aspects of the visual experience that painting and photography have in common and leaving the reader with a better understanding of how photography can indeed make an artist a better painter.
