Only as technical as photography really is.
on January 6, 1999
I found this book practical and detailed. While it does contain a wealth of technical detail, photography is, itself, a technical subject, and this book does not overdo it. There is plenty of clear, practical advice; indeed, one of the first things that the book has you do is load the camera and go out to shoot film.
It also contains some information I haven't found in any other source (the color temperature of candlelight? It's there).
If you are interested in infrared photography and want to studiously practice the craft, this book is a must-have.
