Writer Russell Hart, who is the technology editor for American Photo magazine and an exhibiting photographer, takes readers from the very basics of loading film and batteries into a camera, through such invaluable technical and practical information as how best to photograph kids and choose the right photofinisher (including scoop on the Advanced Photo System), right up to a glossary of "photo jargon" so that even neophyte photographers (or those readers who've only scanned the book) can at least sound like they know what they're doing. Chapter 10, in which Hart waxes somewhat poetic on the value of a photograph--documents of family history, insurance evidence, etc.--and disputes "ten lame excuses for not taking along your camera," can turn even the most reluctant camera operator into a rampant shutterbug. --Jordana Moskowitz --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Taking a good picture is much more than buying an expensive camera with lots of pretty buttons.
If you're like me, and really into shooting photos, but aren't sure what all the numbers and letters are for, this book will make the learning as simple as can be!
I recommend this book as a good introduction for those who are just learning the basic concepts of photography.
