Photography Foundations for Art and Design: A Practical Guide to Creative Photographyby Mark Galer
Synopses & Reviews
This third edition maintains the aim of providing a clear and comprehensive explanation of fundamental photographic techniques. Although the key focus of this update is bringing the digital content more in line with developments in this area, modifying the existing text to embrace digital capture and out-put more thoroughly. This acknowledges the requirement by those students who are now capturing and outputting digitally. Terminology such as film, film speed, etc. will be updated to include digital image sensors and sensitivity.
The main focus of this text is setting a comprehensive list of aims, objectives and resources. Staff and students alike are then aware of what they are expected to achieve and where to look for further information. Students or lecturers on vocational or non-vocational Photography, Art and Design or Media courses will find this book of immense value.
*Offers the latest coverage of photographic terminology and technology to ensure you are fully up to date
*Teaches how to plan and execute independent research through sequential study exercises
*New interior layout directs students to activities, resources, tables and important notes more easily
