Synopses & Reviews
This guide to photographing and processing in colour starts with an historical overview and moves into practical advice on types of film and how to photograph in colour in different light conditions, how to adjust for best exposure, and how to use filters to alter colour balance. Film processing is reviewed in detail, along with a section on how to work with professional labs, since many photographers do not process their own colour film. A section on colour printing is intended particularly for students and committed amateurs, and other chapters cover health and environmental hazards and how to minimize them as well as long-term permanence of colour materials.
This richly illustrated hands-on manual is for photographers of every level interested in color. Students, hobbyists, beginners, and professionals will find a wealth of advice in this practical and visually exciting reference. After a short overview of the beginnings of color photography, the book unfolds in three sections, from the act of photographing through film processing to making color prints. All the latest techniques, materials, and current technological innovations are included. The book offers a variety of work from fine arts to photojournalism and advertising in spectacular photographs by many of today's distinguished color photographers - Annie Leibovitz, Harry Callahan, Joel Meyerowitz, Patrick Demarchelier, Sheila Metzner, Ernst Haas, William Wegman, and Joyce Tenneson, among others.
