Langford's Basic Photography: The Guide for Serious Photographers by Anna Fox
This seminal photography text, now in its 10th edition and celebrating its 50th anniversary, has been revamped, reorganized, and modernized to include the most up-to-date, need to know information for photographers. Ideal for students, beginners, and advanced users wanting to brush up on the fundamentals of photography, this book is a must have for any photographer's bookcase. The heart of this text, however, retains the same comprehensive mix of scholarly and practical information.
The new edition has been fully updated to reflect dynamic changes in the industry. These changes include:
an expansion and overhaul of the information on digital cameras and digital printing;
an emphasis on updating photographs to include a wider range of international work;
replacement of many diagrams with photos;
overhaul of the analogue sections to give a more modern tone (ie exposure measurement and film and filters with some more dynamic photo illustrations).
