JOE FARACE’s interest in photography and digital imaging combine
the engineering education he acquired at Johns Hopkins University
with training in fine art photography at the Maryland Institute
Joe has been writing about and practicing digital imaging since
1990, when some people didn't even know what to call this new technology.
He is the author of more than twenty books on photography, digital
imaging and computing and is a contributing photographer/writer
to Shutterbug magazine, which publishes his monthly Digital Innovations
and Web Profiles column. His work, including the Buzzwords column
designed to demystify techno-speak, appears in eDigitalPhoto.com.
Joe is also Contributing Editor to ComputerUser magazine and published
more than 1300 magazine articles in magazines in the United States
and around the world.
Joe’s philosophy about capturing, enhancing, and printing
digital images is that it has to be fun. Part of that fun involves
finding, choosing, and working with software and hardware that take
the drudgery out of creative imaging. You can visit with Joe at
