Focus on Photography, Student Book, 2nd ed.
By Hermon Joyner and Kathleen Monaghan
Focus on Photography is a comprehensive guide to photography that provides students with techniques, skills, and tools for success in creating both commercial and fine art photographs. An essential resource for photographic concepts and processes—both digital and film—the brand new second edition contains many new images throughout the book to inspire students, and engaging studio opportunities to challenge them. From making pinhole prints to manipulating digital images, these studios provide in-depth technical explanation of darkroom-based and computer-based processes. This one-of-a-kind photography curriculum is written in a clear, friendly style designed to reach students at a range of ability levels and covers a variety of processes, including fine art photography. Two all-new career-based chapters introduce students to the basics and challenges of commercial photography.
