Digital Photography in Available Light covers all the fundamental skills required for location photography when using a digital camera, be it a 35mm or SLR, working with both existing light sources and introduced light.
The basics, from exposure to framing the image and how to work the light and contrast, are explained in detail in a clear, direct style. Through a series of practical activities and assignments you are shown with inspirational examples the importance of image design, communication of content and the essential techniques required for competent and consistent image capture and creation.
Each chapter includes learning outcomes, aims and objectives and the text supports an independent learning approach - criteria set out for each activity, but you are free to decide on topics and style. Illustrative activities and assignments use students' imagery as well as the author's own work.
This third edition of an invaluable text is now in full color throughout and includes the latest digital technologies. Assignments range from landscape and environmental portraiture to photographic essays. Illustrated throughout with student and author work, Digital Photography is an inspirational guide as well as a structured learning tool for mastering the essential techniques.
