A comprehensive illustrated reference about photography and the camera, this book combines how-to advice, knowledgeable commentary, and useful tips on how to take and look at photographs. Not just a how-to book, it is a how-does-it-work book, focusing on cameras, photographs, and photographers. Throughout, voices and photographs from the greatest of National Geographic photographers add authority to these pages. Chapters build from camera basics—like how a digital camera works, what different lenses do, and the definition of exposure—to advanced and specific techniques—such as taking the best family candids, underwater photography, or techniques for capturing fireworks on film. Every chapter includes a feature called "My Perspective," highlighting a National Geographic photographer and his or her work with a personal note on photography. Every chapter ends with a feature called "What Makes This Photograph Great?"—twelve different iconic National Geographic photographs are analyzed thoroughly for their subject matter, composition, lighting and exposure—by James P. Blair, longtime National Geographic photographer. A fascinating illustrated timeline of photography places milestone moments in the developing technology and art of photography into historic context. With something for everyone, novice and experienced amateur alike, designed in such a way that a reader can dip in and out of page after page, this complete reference will become a family favorite, to which young and old will refer over and over for years to come.

Scott Stuckey is managing editor of National Geographic Traveler magazine, author of a magazine column on panoramic photography, and author of National Geographic Ultimate Field Guide to Travel Photography.

Contributors James P. Blair and Pritt Vesilind are longtime National Geographic photographers.

  • Awesome Book

    This book is great for beginners just learning photography as well as semi pro/pro photographers wanting to get caught up on current info. I really enjoyed the layout of this book. Its has cross references on every topic. The book also has a bio of an Nat Geo photographer in the middle of each chapter, which allows you to gain methods and how other photographers think. At the end of each chapter the book has a "What make this a great photograph" section, which helps you learn composition. Topics are short and easy to read! Great Book Nat Geo!!!

  • Excelent beginners book.

    This book is geared more for bare begininers and entry level photographers. It does a very good job of explaining why a camera functions and how to think about making it work for you. It shows colorfull diagrams, uses sensable humor and keeps the reader thining "I can do that". It has insights from several photographers and includes several of their more unique photos. An excelent choice for someone wanting to know why things work but can not understand complicated explinations and techinical jargon. This book takes a "hands on" view for learning to use your camera, regardless of the brand / make / model.
