[SOLD] Outstanding Photography Book

The Master Guide to Photography by Michael Langford

This is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and ingeniously arranged all-round guide to photography and photographic expertise ever published. In more than 400,000 words of text and 1,500 pictures (the bulk of them in color), it presents a complete illustrated survey of:
• Basic photographic techniques (plus information on how to use them, both generally and in special cases), equipment guidelines, and trouble-shooting
• Classical and contemporary photographic composition, including detailed guidance on _the dynamics of picture construction
• Professional techniques for specialized photo. graphic areas, from medical and forensic
photography to advertising, sports, theatrical,
and news photography
• Processing and printing theory and practice, plus darkroom techniques for special visual effects
• The history of photographic style, including analyses of the greatest work of more than two dozen master photographers from the beginning to the present day
• Presenting, mounting, and storing photographs
Semi-encyclopedic in structure and carefully cross-referenced, The Master Guide to Photography has been designed for maximum usefulness by amateur and professional alike—as a ready source of specific information, as a creative stimulus or idea bank, as a book to be read and pored over. Color photography for once receives fully adequate—and beautiful—coverage, while dozens of diagrams and tables clearly summarize all the technical data any photographer may have occasion to need, from a color-toning formula to processing sequences. Produced by Dorling Kindersley Ltd. and the editorial team responsible for The Photographer's Handbook, The Bookof Photography, The Step by-Step Guide to Photography, and other volumes, The Master Guide exceeds even the high standards attained in those best-selling photographic how-to books.
In short, there has never been a guide to photography as thorough, detailed, up to date. and expert as this one. It fully deserves its name.

It does not matter if you shoot digital or film, this book has a wealth of information. Very good condition but the dust jacket is a bit frayed.

$15.00 shipped Conus only. Can take PayPal but add 4% to cover their fees.
