Introducing you to the art, history, and culture of photography, this fascinating all-in-one guide shows you how to take better pictures.

A comprehensive guide to all things photographic, Photography opens with a gallery of more than 30 of the key figures in photography, from 19th-century pioneers to famous photographers working today. The gallery provides fascinating contrasts between such diverse genres as art photography, reportage, portrait, and wildlife photography.

Inspirational masterclasses covering all genres of photography--including landscape, portraits, wildlife, architecture, and art--also provide you with an opportunity to apply your new skills in a clear and practical way.
