Learning to Photograph - Volume 1 from Rocky Nook is the first in a two-volume series that gives students and amateurs essential information about technique and design as they relate to the larger concepts of photography. In this first volume you are introduced to the basics of camera technology as they pertain to optics and exposure. After providing an overview of these technical elements, particular attention is given to cameras, lenses, and how they work at influencing each other. Building upon this knowledge, Cora and Georg Banek discuss the implementation of this knowledge, showing you how to put this information to use and effectively realize ideas to create unique images. Filled with numerous example photos and informational graphics, Learning to Photograph - Volume 1 makes the lessons visually appealing while offering you inspiring templates for you to draw from as you create your own original photographs.
