Basic Photography provides a comprehensive look into the world of photography, from basic principles (light, composition, etc.) through types of cameras, lenses and lighting gear to practical considerations on how to print and present your work.
This is a classic book, it has been revised and expanded during the years, it still leans heavily towards film photography. I really didn't know much about film photography, but the section on this argument is well explained and induce me to buy a film camera.
I have bought the 8th edition, that was published in 2007, the chapters on film characteristics, film developing and printing feels deeply technical with abundant and clear illustrations, charts and pictures to support quite detailed explanations. Can be imaginable like in that years the digital photography wasn't so developed and of course there is not a single mention about mobile photography.
If you are interested in a complete view of what the concepts are, getting an idea of how the problems in photography can be solved with film or digital cameras, and what tools and techniques are available to deal with every situation, then it is the good book for you and of course it is a must read if you are interested in film photography.
I am really pleased with this book and I think I'll buy the new edition!
