This guide to photography is aimed at the novice photographer and is based on Ansel Adams' theories about techniques for visualizing and making a photograph. Using the extensive store of Adams' writings - including his advanced series consisting of the books "The Camera", "The Negative" and "The Print" - the author offers Adams' views on the artistic, practical and technical aspects of photography and shows how to apply these in the field and in the darkroom. This book is illustrated with examples of Adams' own work as well as that of other well-known photographers. Numerous demonstration photographs and technical drawings help to explain terms, techniques and concepts of photography. Procedures for developing film and making a print are presented in a step-by-step format. Included are chapters on camera systems, lenses and accessories, film, visualization, light and exposure, developing and printing the negative, making a film print and colour photography.

Heavily based upon Adams's writings on the aesthetics and techniques of photography, most notably his series The Camera , The Negative , and The Print , this fine book deals with virtually every aspect of the medium. Following a brief introduction on the history of photography and on contemporary issues in taking photographs, this book introduces readers to cameras and lenses, moves on to the specifics of black-and-white and color photography, and concludes with an interesting chapter on field trips. All aspects of photography are thoroughly presented in a clear, readable manner. In fact, the book is much more accessible than Adams's classic series. The title is also something of a misnomer, because experienced photographers as well as beginners will find this book to be of great value. Given the number and quality of reproductions as well as the abundance and quality of information, this book is certainly one of the best manuals available. Essential purchase for all public and academic libraries.
