Choosing the exposure for a photograph is both alarmingly simple and infinitely complex; in fact, it?s one of photography?s most absorbing paradoxes. Exposure is at the very heart of photography. It has always been a subject of fascination to aspiring amateurs and professional photographers alike. Developments in digital technology have transformed the ways in which exposures can be manipulated, and this in turn has forced photographers to think about what they can achieve by understanding the variables of aperture, ISO, and time. In this book Michael Freeman takes you through this difficult and fast-moving area using unique workflow illustrations, histograms, and clear, visual examples to explore the subtleties of the subject and enable you to shoot with confidence. Divided into six sections ? Fast-track & Foolproof, Technical, The Twelve, Style, Post-processing, and Reference ? the book will provide you with the necessary instruction to get perfect exposure anywhere and with any subject matter.
Analogous and Digital
Author: Otl Aicher
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Otl Aicher (1922–1991) was an outstanding personality in modern design, he was a co-founder of the legendary Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG), the Ulm School of Design, Germany. His works since the fifties of the last century in the field of corporate design and his pictograms for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich are major achievements in the visual communication of our times. An integral component of Aicher's work is that it is anchored in a „philosophy of making“ inspired by such thinkers as Ockham, Kant or Wittgenstein, a philosophy concerned with the prerequisites and aims, the objects and claims, of design. Aicher's complete theoretical and practical writings on design (which include all other aspects of visual creativity, such as architecture) are available with this new edition of the classic work. If Aicher prefers the analogous and concrete to the digital and abstract he does it with a philosophical intention. He relativizes the role of pure reason. He criticizes the rationality of Modernism as a result of the dominance of purely abstract thinking. Anyone who prefers the abstract to the concrete does not only misunderstand the mutual dependence of concept and view. In Aicher's judgement he is also creating a false hierarchy, a rank order that is culturally fatal. Things that are digital and abstract are not greater, higher and more important than things that are analogous and concrete. Wilhelm Vossenkuhl

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) produced some of the 20th century's most iconic photographic images and helped nurture the art of photography through his creative innovations and peerless technical mastery. The Negative--the second volume in Adams' celebrated series of books on photographic techniques--has taught generations of photographers how to use film and the film development process creatively. Examples of Adams' own work clarify the principles discussed. This classic handbook distills the knowledge gained through a lifetime in photography and remains as vital today as when it was first published. Anchored by a detailed discussion of Adams' Zone System and his seminal concept of visualization, The Negative covers artificial and natural light, film and exposure, and darkroom equipment and techniques. Beautifully illustrated with photographs as well as instructive line drawings, this classic manual can dramatically improve your photography. "Adams is a clear-thinking writer whose concepts cannot but help the serious photographer." - New York Times "A master-class kind of guide from an undisputed master." - Publishers Weekly Over 1 million copies sold. Publisher's Note: This ebook of The Negative works best as a digital companion to the print edition. The ebook was produced by electronically scanning and digitizing a print edition, and as a result, your reading device may display images with halftone or moiré patterns.
“What a fantastic book! It’s about color management for photographers. Sam explains why color management is essential for achieving accurate colors in photos and how to go about it. Neither in my printing technology lectures nor on the Internet have I found this topic explained as well as it is here. In fact, I found that after an enjoyable hour reading, I had learned quite a lot, and gained a far deeper understanding of the topic. If you don’t believe that Sam can put across this rather dry material with a smile in his eye, then just turn to page 15.” Birgit Engelhardt Photographer and enthusiastic reader of this book
