Description
With 9 easy-to-do experiments and 230 exciting pictures, this book tells the history, the science and the technology behind photography and film-making. It investigates all kinds of cameras, with inside-view illustrations of how they work. It features practical projects to do at home that explain the scientific principles, including how a lens works, easy animation, and how to make your own pinhole camera. Fascinating pictures show these devices in action, demonstrating techniques, settings, filters, effects, printing, projecting and how to take great photographs. You can learn about cameras, from film to digital to recording, viewing and editing images. Page by page, the book focuses on a different aspect of the photographic process, from the anatomy of a camera to shutter speeds and what the aperture does. Simple step-by-step experiments reinforce the learning experience - see how light behaves, create a 3D effect, and produce a panoramic shot. This is a completely accessible reference work for keen young photographers, which is sure to be borrowed by like-minded friends and family!
