“In the first volume, authors Cora and Georg Banek focus on the basics of camera technology: optics and exposure. They begin with an overview of these technical elements before going into depth about how cameras and lenses work and how they influence one another. Building on this foundation, the authors show readers how to apply what they have learned in order to create effective images and to successfully achieve their vision.
The second volume addresses visual design and composition. Topics covered include managing light, color and its effects, sharpness and blur, shapes and lines, and much more. Readers will learn which techniques to use to design their images, and how to train their photographic eye. They will develop the ability to strengthen the message of their images, hone their photographic style, and analyze their own work and the work of others.”
