Re: Ready For RAW

Get to know how to produce good 'conventional' pictures first, then as you gain experience you will know how to create the pictures you mention.

Take a look at 'How to Cheat in Photoshop' by Steve Caplin. This deals with what are essentially montages, but the techniques can be used in any sort of processing. You might find it closer to what you want.

Many applications have different styles built in, or you can get plug-ins for Photoshop. However most of these pre-sets give you little control over the final result unless you get one of the more expensive specialised effect applications and you will not learn how to create these effects if you just push a button.
