The first of two volumes explaining photographic technology (this volume) and associated issues of visual design (the second volume), this book describes the technical basics of the photographic process and how they interact with each other. Chapters are presented on the fundamentals of photo theory; an overview of photography technology; optics and lenses; exposure metering; exposure control; additional camera functions (e.g., the image sensor, the view finder, video); accessories; camera types and selecting a camera; special shooting situations and common technical mistakes; determining one's own photographic profile; development as a photographer; and mastering one's camera. As one might expect, the volume contains numerous photographic and other illustrations. Distributed in the US by O'Reilly Media.
