Reviews of previous editions:
“This is another great book for all of those who are starting to learn the tools and techniques of photography. It is written in a clear, and well-illustrated set of exercises, that will help you build all of your photo skills, and make quality images. Both teachers and students will love all of the information they will find in this book, and will use it as a constant reference source.” – www.apogeephoto.com
‘An excellent book, perfectly pitched for students at this level. I wish we could afford to buy more copies!’ (Teacher, GNVQ Art & Design)
‘Full of interesting ideas and assignments which will keep a photographer busy for a long time to come. If any student of photography, formal or informal and of any age, only ever buys one book on photography, this should be the one.’ The Photographic Journal
‘This type of book is few and far between’ (Teacher of GCSE/C&G Photography, Pre Degree and GNVQ)
Photography: Foundations for Art and Design is the perfect introductory guide for those of you learning the basics of photography. Offering a clear and well-illustrated structured approach to the tools and techniques, it will also guide you through the important aspects of photography as a means of self-expression and communication.
The main focus is setting a comprehensive list of objectives and resources for clarity at the outset. A series of sequential study exercises intended as independent learning resources are provided and each exercise will help you to build design skills, teach you how to properly research, and execute work in a systematic manner.
This new edition includes more digital information and also an entire new chapter on Still Life.
