Summary

For courses in Photography

The most comprehensive, up-to-date resource for today's photography students
Photography helps students learn how to make photographs, how to control photographic processes, and how different photographers employ them for their own creative purposes. As with each edition of this hallmark text, authors Barbara London, Jim Stone, and John Upton provide comprehensive yet practical coverage of both the traditional practice of photography and the now-dominant contemporary digital techniques. Integrating material on chemical and digital processes throughout, the Twelfth Edition offers fully up-to-date coverage of digital techniques, equipment, and workflow.
