The recent boom in digital camera sales has dramatically revived interest in photography. More people are taking pictures than ever before, from serious hobbyists using digital SLRs to rank amateurs using cell phones. Most photography schools now teach both "wet" and digital photography, but many programs are abandoning their darkrooms entirely, requiring students to only use digital cameras. In DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY: A BASIC MANUAL, bestselling author Henry Horenstein provides step-by-step instructions, full-page prints, and line illustrations to illuminate every aspect of digital photography, from exposure controls and shutter speed to image editing, printing methods, and even file storage. Based in the same clear and comprehensive teaching techniques that made Horenstein's Black and White Photography a perennial classic, DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY is essential reading for photo enthusiasts who wish to bridge traditional darkroom technique with the digital present and future.
Dogs In Vogue
By Judith Watt
The next best thing to having the world at your feet is to have a dog at your heels,' observed Vogue in 1930. Since 1909, dogs have had a role to play in the glamorous story of Vogue, as companions to style icons and royalty, society leaders, artists and models. Portrayed here are dogs in their own right and dogs with their people. Here are stout-hearted wire-haired terriers; elegant sighthounds; diminutive pugs and Pekinese; poodles, the epitome of French chic; and gentle spaniels and retrievers. The dogs that have appeared in VOGUE have inspired brilliant articles by writers such as Dorothy Parker and Lesley Blanch. Dogs have been painted by many of VOGUE's greatest artists, from Douglas Pollard to René Bouët-Willaumez. This stunning book features dazzling, rarely seen photographs by Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Lord Snowdon, David Bailey, Mario Testino and more.
