Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product description


"This book is one of the best I've ever read due to the depth and breadth of topics covered. Mark Galer speaks to us all with the single-minded goal of disseminating clear and thoughtful information."

Michael E. Stern
Brooks Institute of Photography

"Newbies will love the introductory section on camera and asset management, but the meat of the book begins with the chapter on 'Exposure' that not only makes the technical details understandable but provides example photographs showing the aesthetic issues as well." -Joe Farace, Shutterbug

Praise for previous edition:

"A comprehensive look at the changing world of new technology on location, written in a practical no nonsense and entertaining style.. a really well put together publication."
Geoff Clark, Blackpool & the Fylde College

"The book also helps immensely by providing the student with a ready reference as well as well defined activities."
Mark Lewis, Mount Saint Mary College

"This remains an excellent production for its information content, and a worthwhile acquisition for a college or school of art and design offering courses leading to a qualification in professional photography." Graham Saxby, RPS Journal, March 2004

"...[part of] a series of very well laid out books with a clear step by step approach to each subject, coupled with examples, activities to try out, and assignments. Included are galleries which give an inspiration into what can be achieved, along with recommended further reading."
Dave Ingles, reader

"The design of the series clearly reflects the aims and objectives of the authors in terms of format, visual appearance and organisation of the content. Readers are presented with easily accessible, no nonsense, how-things-happen, textbooks of key photographic skills."
Richard Sadler FRPS, MA
