Summary

Summary

Perfect for beginning and mid-level photographers, this book is geared toward those who want to learn more about photography but have been put off by the thought of collecting separate books on lighting, composition techniques, and other necessary skills. Basic and advanced photography techniques are covered in a way that is easy to digest and apply. Included is information about camera and film selection, how to select an appropriate aperture and shutter speed, and how lenses and filters can be used to affect change on a problematic scene. Advanced techniques such as slide sandwiching and double exposures are also covered. Concrete photographic examples of each topic are provided, and photographic exercises test the mastery of skills and build confidence.
