Looking at Photographs: A Guide to Technical Terms
"What is a contact print? What is depth of field? What is the difference between a daguerreotype and a tintype?" "These terms - and more than one hundred others - are explained and illustrated in Looking at Photographs. This volume, first published in 1991, sets out and defines the vocabulary of photography from its earliest processes through the age of the analog camera; it has been updated to include the new age of digital photography. It is both a rich and informative glossary and a history of the medium, from the "albumen print" and "calotype" of the nineteenth century to today's "chromogenic print" and "giclee." This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Looking at Photographs will be invaluable to all those wishing to increase their understanding and enjoyment of the art of photography." --Book Jacket.
