The use of any visual media: photography, digital imaging, film or video is enhanced by a working knowledge of the optical principles involved in visual perception, image formation and recording techniques. Applied Photographic Optics has established itself as the standard reference work on all aspects of lens based media, giving a selective overview of optical theory and technology, explanations of the capabilities and limitations of lenses and how the technology is applied to a range of applications.
Selected by The American Library Association's 'Choice' magazine as best technical book, this biblical work will appeal to students, practitioners and specialists working with optical media. It remains a comprehensive treatment of the subject, containing a wealth of facts and data in one handy source. Case histories and examples are given to support examples, as well as extensive notes on usage.
