Perfect for novices, photography students, and amateurs looking to brush up on the fundamentals, this is the most accessible 35mm photography guide available. Starting with the very basics of holding and loading a camera, Basic 35mm Photography moves on to more complicated subjects of shutter speeds, film types, lenses, light meters, exposure, automatic settings, and special effects. Explanations of key topics are given, photography jargon is defined, and photos are used to illustrate how to get the best results. Working step-by-step through the book, photographers learn how to take a great picture using a 35mm camera of any type-semiautomatic or automatic. Various brands of lenses, filters, flashes, and cameras are evaluated, and photographers find out how to choose, use, and care for each piece of equipment.
Craig Alesse is a photographer and the author of Don't Take My Picture! He lives in Buffalo, New York.
