Covering everything from focal length to depth offield, prime versus zoom lenses, and specialist optics, this book manages to unravel the technicalities of lenses while remaining comprehensible and reader-friendly.
Throughout the book, the reader is guided through basic terminology, common focal lengths, what optical quality means in terms of the photographs they take, and eventually comes to understand the anatomy of the camera lens and its effect on the image.
The book contains:
• Chapters on modernlens technology, wide-angle, standard and specialist lenses, the digital darkroom and more.
Concise, clear information for beginner to intermediate level photographers. All illustrated in the author's trademark style of inspirational yet accessible photography.
