The perfect camera-bag companion for every serious novice photographer who shoots on location in the field, this clear, nontechnical book shows how to achieve desired effects every time. The basics of camera function are explained in language that's easy to understand, giving complete coverage of film, light, lens apertures, shutter speeds, exposure, metering, and focusing, with printing, storing, and showing of work also included. Fully explored are composition and training the photographer's eye to handle light and contrast, with many sample assignments offering fledgling photographers practice shots to sharpen skills. The full range of popular subjects includes adults, children, events, and travel; flowers, gardens, nature, and animals; landscapes, seascapes, sunsets, and sunrises; abstractions, graphics, impression, and close-ups; buildings, interiors, and still lifes.
