Photography is a science, an art, a hobby, a career. it can be your way of life, or it can be merely a means of recording the growth of your loved ones. Whatever photography is to you, it will be far more satisfying if your photographs are what you want them to be--if you can record on the film just what you want to record, the way you want to record it. And that's what this book is all about--giving you what you need to know to make your pictures turn out the way you want them to. Basic Guide to Photography provides a lot of information and familiarizes you with the terms and the techniques, but only by going out and shooting photographs will you learn how to produce the results you want on the film. And that is photography.
