Focal Press 9781138854512 Overview

Intended as the primary textbook for a photo 101 course, Introduction to Photography: A Visual Guide to the Essential Skills of Photography and Lightroom from Focal Press is a wide-ranging, step-by-step guide teaching the fundamental skills of photography. Authored by Mark Galer, this 174-page book covers the basics of working with an interchangeable-lens camera, either a DSLR or mirrorless, as well as an introduction to digital image editing using software such as Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. The text is written in a jargon-free style and the publication is laid out in a simple manner-placing a large image on the page with a brief explanation of the creative controls used to achieve the photograph. This pared down style of information aids in quickly learning a variety of skills, as well as retaining the information for long-term use.
