Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many owners of digital cameras are discovering that an old interest in photography has been rekindled not by the awesome range-both in features and affordability-of new cameras, but also by the complete removal of one of the major obstacles in film photography: cost-and now that photography in its digital form is so affordable it has attracted a whole new raft of enthusiasts who want to give full rein to their creative aspirations, and for whom a digital camera may be their first contact with photography. Whether it's the new, or hardened users, both need to learn not ony about white balance, memory, and digital formats, but also about unfamiliar features such as predictive autofoucs, multi-pattern metering, and programmed exposure.

 

However, with all these advances in technology, never before-not just in photography, but in every corner of human experience-have we been required to absorb so much information. The downside to this explosion of "stuff" is that it brings with it the inevitable modern-day phenomenon of "knowledge fade"-the consequence of our inability to retain,due to its sheer volume, the information which has become our daily diet.

 

While there are many manuals which offer practical and aesthetic advice on all things photographic, even the most enthusiastic photographer baulks at the prospect of carrying even one of these tomes on a photographic expedition, whether for profit or pleasure. The Camera Bag Companions series, therefore-a first in photography book publishing-has been specifically designed to offer respite to the frustrations of knowledge fade. Each title in the series measures a very handy 3 1/4"x 4 3/8" - small enough to fit easily into a camera case, yet large enough to contain enough useful "refresher" information to photographs on the move.

 

The series follows three threads: titles with tips for general shooting techniques;titles containing subject-specific advice; and titles with information relating specifically to camera technology.

Synopsis:

This quick-reference guide to black and white photography offers tips into creating unique, elegant, and sophisticated images while on the move with your digital camera. The book provides instant instruction on how to see and compose great black andamp; white shots, and how to capture images that make great results.
