Focal Press presents Langford's Advanced Photography, Eighth Edition: The Guide for Aspiring Photographers, by Efthimia Bilissi and Michael Langford. This popular and long-standing guide is considered to be an essential photo book for those looking to establish a career with the craft. Author Efthimia Bilissi builds on Langford's foundation with technical details and straightforward writing, both of which bring the book successfully into the digital age.
Consider it a comprehensive guide on all things photography, from equipment to HDR imaging - this book completely covers the entire photographic process from the technical standpoint. Not only that, but it also explains the 'why' behind each 'how'. Additional assets in the book include a full glossary, charts, and awe-inspiring color photos.
