If you are looking to learn more about the math and science behind the workings of photography this is a great book to own. It breaks down all the basics from film types to alternative process. If you are studying photography this is a must have.

Salutations,

Let me start off by saying that I am a learned man who enjoys personally perusing art-related literature in his spare time in order to advance the studies in the coniferous field. I recently acquired this work from a cooperative colleague of mine who recommended it. He, sadly, is not a gentlemanne of higher tastes like myself. When I concluded my strenuous struggle to scour this scourge of a book for any worthwhile matadorial material, I was astutely astonished to discover that I had gained nothing from my wasted time. This lewd literature is a worrisome wanton waste of otherwise perfect paper. You probably should readily refrain from repeating my ruinous mistake.

May the everlasting river of life bring us back together one day,
-Me
