Perfect for novices, photography students, and amateurs looking to brush up on the fundamentals, this accessible 35 mm photography guide starts with the very basics of holding and loading a camera before moving on to more complicated subjects such as shutter speeds, film types, lenses, light meters, exposure, automatic settings, and special effects. Explanations of key topics are given; photography jargon is defined; and photos are used to illustrate how to get the best results. Working step-by-step through the book, photographers learn how to take a great picture using a 35 mm camera of any type, whether semiautomatic or automatic. Various brands of lenses, filters, flashes, and cameras are evaluated, and photographers will discover how to choose, use, and care for each piece of equipment.
