Now in its fifth edition, Handbook of Photography is designed to teach those who have never used a camera how to take photos, develop film and make prints. Each chapter represents a stage in the photographic process -- from focusing the camera to the emergence of the final picture--mounted for display or ready for use in print. This updated edition not only covers all these basics but also provides new material on film, equipment and techniques, especially in the field of digital photography. Photos by noted photographers are included to give both valuable information and inspiration to the user.
