"This comprehensive handbook covers every aspect of photography from capture through to output. It gives detailed instruction from the fundamental concepts of exposure, aperture, ISO and shutter speed, image size and format, to an in-depth analysis of composition. Instructive, easy-to-follow text explains the effects of light and colour, the use of filters and the choice of lenses, flashes and other accessories, post-production techniques, noise reduction and retouching. Technical jargon is clearly explained, with expert advice and invaluable hints and tips given by the combined knowledge and expertise of a team of professional photographers. Practical examples are illustrated with stunning full colour photographs and complemented by clear diagrams and charts. This bumper edition provides all the know-how for the beginner or enthusiatic amateur to produce compelling and stunning pictures."
