Starting Photography is a practical book for absolute beginners - amateurs with average 35mm cameras, young people at school taking photography as part of GCSE, or adults doing non-professional photography as a City & Guilds subject. Starting Photography explains the key features of the camera itself - shutter, focus, flash, etc. - in terms of the creative options each one offers. Further sections suggest ways of approaching different kinds of subject, with ideas for projects and for unusual pictures. Guidance is given on assessing results from laboratory-processed prints, how to identify mistakes and how to avoid them in future, and how to process your own black & white films. This second edition makes extensive use of colour photographs; is now even more appropriate for GCSE, City & Guilds and other practical courses; includes projects included to encourage experimentation; and contains more on automatic cameras and flash.
