Photography for the Joy of It
Photography for the Joy of It

The first book in the instructional series by Freeman Patterson has just been revised. André Gallant joins Freeman and together they provide clear instructions for beginning photographers on shooting film and digital, choosing equipment, selecting correct exposure, using histograms, understanding depth of field and much more.


Photographers learn how to make pictures with selective focus, showing motion, using flash, double or long exposures, and at night.


The revised edition is accompanied by mostly all new images with informative captions.
