Description

Celebrating 30 years in print, the classic book on photography basics has been completely updated and revised for digital photographers.The first book in Freeman Pattersons internationally acclaimed series of instructional books on photography and visual design, Photography for the Joy of It has now been updated and expanded to include technical guidelines adapted for both digital and film photographers. Here, Patterson and his teaching partner, Andr Gallant take a look at the basics in photography, providing clear instruction for beginning colour or black-and-white photographers on choosing equipment, selecting the correct exposure, understanding depth of field and much, much more. Once the basics are in hand, photographers learn how to make pictures with selective focus, showing motion, using flash, double or long exposures, and at night.This edition features several never-before-published photographs from both Patterson and Gallant, and extended captions that include valuable technical information and personal commentary, illustrating the superb craftsmanship and stunning photography of two of the worlds most celebrated photographers.
