Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In addition to countless millions of conventional film cameras, digital cameras will be found in one out of every two American households this year. This authoritative guide provides a handy, all-in-one reference for photographers using either medium (or both), combining the practical know-how of more than 50 outstanding professional photographers with National Geographic's world-renowned tradition of excellence and expertise.

The Ultimate Field Guide to Photography presents ten easy-to-read chapters exploring every aspect of the digital revolution. With straightforward explanations of both simple, all-but-foolproof equipment like inexpensive autofocus point-and-shoot cameras and of sophisticated, megapixel single lens reflex units boasting interchangeable lenses. It also covers important accessories; provides advice of all kinds, from key facts and basic tips for beginners to advanced techniques for skilled amateurs; and addresses the essentials of PhotoShop editing, scanning and printing, effective archiving, and more. Along with digital information, there's also plenty of material on traditional film, from old techniques to helpful sidebars on when to use film rather than digital.

Throughout the book dozens of well-known, highly accomplished photographers showcase some of their most famous shots and share both the human stories behind them and the specific technical details of their creation. This wonderful mix of vivid examples and vital nuts-and-bolts information makes The Ultimate Field Guide to Photography a uniquely useful, indispensable reference for photographers everywhere.

Book News Annotation:

Nine professional photographers contribute personal perspectives to this National Geographic guide to digital, film, and camera phone photography techniques. Eleven chapters discuss basic and advanced techniques for all types of photography, as well as strategies for selecting a digital camera, using point and shoot and other film cameras, making better prints, scanning and archiving (for digital files as well as prints), digital editing, and conceiving projects. Also included are eight photographer profiles and nine portfolios displaying works and insights, mostly from National Geographic's team. Abundant color photographs from the magazine demonstrate techniques in action. This guide is especially useful for beginning and intermediate photographers, though sidebars and historical materials will be of interest to those of any skill level.
