Publisher Comments:

Another hundred-year-old gem from Hasluck's "Work" series!

I get a kick out of the knuckleheads who have super expensive cameras with computer this and automated that, but don't know which end to look into. What a waste! They're not photographers. I've taken better pictures than they ever will with a disposable camera!

If you really want to explore photography, build a camera. It's a great marriage of woodworking, metal working, an understanding of optics, the chemistry of photography and the creativity of an artist.

This series of articles will show you how to test photographic lenses, build modern half-plate cameras, whole-plate and studio cameras, hand and pocket cameras, ferrotype (tintype) cameras, stereoscopic (3-D like Viewmaster®) cameras, enlarge cameras, make dark slides, exposure shutters and even camera tripod stands. You won't be shown how to grind lenses or process film. This is about building the equipment. The details on bellowsmaking are rare enough to make the book worth having.
