Excellent for those interested in the science and techniques,

This review is from: Basic Photography (Paperback)
Langford is a well-known teacher of photography at university level, and this is his basic-level textbook. Don't be put off by this, though - he uses a nonacademic style which will appeal to the lone or even casual student of photography.
Covering simple optics, lenses, cameras and film, the author guides the student through each topic with good (not brilliant) diagrams and graphics.
Will provide a good grounding in principles, as well as a number of useful tips based on the science. For the more serious enthusiast, a must-have.
