about

You may be passionate about photography, and own a digital SLR with perhaps more advanced equipment as well. But do the photographs you take with this powerful equipment come out as well as you'd like?

With this fascinating and beautifully illustrated book, you learn how to apply the techniques and principles of classic photography so you can make great images with today's digital equipment. Harold Davis, author and renowned fine art photographer, puts the focus inPractical Artistryon light and exposure, two crucial concepts you need to understand and master if you are to truly capture the images you see.

Davis presents a generous number of his own images in each chapter, complete with technical information and an explanation of what he was trying to achieve. These striking photographs not only illustrate the lesson at hand, but also serve as inspiration for your own efforts. Browsing the photographs alone will tell you a lot.

Topics covered in this book include:

  • Camera, lenses, and equipment
  • Understanding exposure and measuring light
  • Relationship of aperture to shutter speed and ISO
  • Working with depth of field
  • Natural lighting, studio lighting, and the use of flash
  • Light and color temperature
  • Working with white balance
  • Photographing at dawn or dusk
  • Photography at night

  • Telling a story with your image
