Introducing you to the art, history, and culture of photography, this fascinating all-in-one guide shows you how to take better pictures.
A comprehensive guide to all things photographic, Photography opens with a gallery of more than 30 of the key figures in photography, from 19th-century pioneers to famous photographers working today. The gallery provides fascinating contrasts between such diverse genres as art photography, reportage, portrait, and wildlife photography. The book then tells the story of photography, from its beginnings to the rise of the “selfie” today.
The second half of the book introduces cameras, accessories, and software, explaining what they can do and how to use them, then shows how to take better photographs by mastering the technical aspects of your camera; experimenting with composition, color, and light; and digitally enhancing your photos. Inspirational masterclasses covering all genres of photography—including landscape, portraits, wildlife, architecture, and art—also provide you with an opportunity to apply your new skills in a clear and practical way.
