Learning to Photograph – Volume 1

The two volumes of the Learning to Photograph series give students and interested amateur photographers essential information about technique and design as well as an understanding of the big concepts of photography.

This first volume brings readers up to speed on the basics of camera technology: optics and exposure. The authors provide an overview of these technical elements before going into detail about how cameras and lenses work and how they influence one another. Building upon this foundation, the authors discuss the practical application of this knowledge, showing readers how to put this information to use to create images and realize ideas effectively.

The numerous example photos and informational graphics not only illustrate the concepts at hand, but also make the lessons visually pleasing and offer inspiring templates for readers to imitate in their own craft.

Topics include:

  • Optics and lenses
  • Exposure metering and control
  • Image sensors, viewfinders, and displays
  • Live view and video functionality
  • Flash units and additional accessories
  • The right camera
  • Photo technology in practice

The subsequent volume in the Learning to Photograph series addresses visual concepts and composition.
