The lessons are presented in a logical order and have been tested by the authors in their own classrooms. In the first section, students are introduced to the camera and its controls; then, to digital capture, editing and manipulating images, and digital output. The second part of the book teaches students how to make great images in the main genres of photography.
Diprose and Robins have the depth of practical knowledge that can only be gained from decades in the field and have distilled it into a series of helpful tip boxes that cover such topics as fitting a UV filter to your camera to enhance color quality, shooting from a camera that is “tethered” directly to a computer, and photographing in such difficult environments as desert and coastal areas.
Very readable and full of worthwhile information …useful for beginning photography courses.
— William Wylie, Professor of Art, University of Virginia
