An essential resource for understanding how photography works and how to solve the many problems photographers face when learning this trade. It deals with the fundamental principles upon which the photographic process is based and presents the principles in a practical manner.

This important addition covers, in depth, everything photographers need to know in order to be completely up-to-date on the digital aspects of photography. This book is heavily illustrated with helpful photographs and line drawings, and also includes a special color insert.
