Photography: A Practical Guide by Ailsa McWhinnie

Photography is a fully comprehensive guide to both traditional and digital photography, offering the reader a superb overview of the knowledge and techniques required to achieve quality photographs, whatever the medium. The book provides practical advice and inspiration for both the novice and the seasoned photographer. Divided into two main sections to cover traditional and digital photography, there is also a section at the end of the book looking at some of the key photographers of the twentieth century, and featuring inspiring examples of their work. The book includes sound advice on purchasing and using equipment and accessories, getting to grips with basics such as composition and lighting, creative techniques for a variety of situations, and developing your own pictures or manipulating digital photographs to maximum effect. Step-by-step instructions illustrated by colour photographs will allow the reader to turn concepts into excellent results at every stage.
