Using my own examples again, I provide an overview of how digital image manipulation software, such as Adobe Photoshop, can not only improve your photography, but can add a new level of artistry to it. Even an impromptu studio allows you to experiment with lighting and control it in a way that is impossible to achieve outdoors. Having your own darkroom, meanwhile, allows you to manipulate, crop, and enlarge your own images without the need for a computer, scanner, or desktop printer.

She recalls him as focused but great fun; on one occasion, she had to find a model with "perfectly beautiful hands" for a cigarette advertisement, which also required 10 pairs of gold cufflinks from Asprey's.
Angela and her husband, the photographer Charles Chadwyck-Healey, an early business partner of Hedgecoe's, had a family and would be called upon whenever Hedgecoe wanted to "borrow a baby" — a child or grandchild — for his handbooks on photographing infants, toddlers and young children.

The portraits were widely exhibited and led to three books about Moore. Less reverential in style were Hedgecoe's s images of the fashion designer Mary Quant and the painter Sandra Blow; Peter Blake looking pensive before his easel; or a shot of Hockney turning down the corners of his mouth for the camera.
