Gr 6 Up-Following discussion of the basics such as equipment, film, lighting, and quality control by manipulating shutter speed and aperture size, the authors describe the many kinds of science projects that lend themselves to photography. Some employ photographs simply to illustrate the scientific investigation, while others use them to record observations in an effort to prove or disprove a hypothesis. Successive chapters describe activities that utilize close-ups, photomicrography, astrophotography, and pinhole cameras. In the case of the latter, the lengthy exposure time required and the necessity of immobilizing the camera are not addressed. All chapters suggest several possible projects; however, readers will need to remember the authors' early disclaimer that not all of the suggested demonstrations are suitable for science fairs. Fair-quality black-and-white photographs and diagrams appear throughout the text. Many of the descriptions keyed to the illustrations are found on following rather than facing pages. Suitable for young people interested in photography and/or curious about science.-Nancy E. Curran, Decatur Public Schools, IL
