You are guided through the use of studio equipment for a wide variety of different purposes. With a strong commercial orientation, the emphasis is highly practical and focuses on technique, communication and design within the genres of still life, advertising illustration, portraiture and fashion.This successful guide is an essential tool for those working with small, medium and large format cameras in a controlled environment where the image output is to film or digital file. You are encouraged to experiment whether you have expensive equipment, or are using natural light sources; either way you will see how it is possible to achieve acceptable results and develop your skills. John Child lectures in photography at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia - the leading photography course in the southern hemisphere. He has worked for many years as a professional photographer, with clients including Ford, L'Oreal, American Express and British Airways. EDITIONNUMBER: 15

Format: Paperback
I had to purchase this book for a university studio photography course...unfortunately, the instructor never even flipped through it. It is by far the WORST photography book, really the worst book I have ever purchased! There are typo's, the "example photos" and instruction sometime are not the same. The projects are lame and really teach nothing. I would not recommend this book under any circumstances...AVOID AT ALL COST!!! I believe the editor or copywriter or whomever read the book before final printing should be FIRED!
