Photography and Digital Imaging With Supplement

Photography And Digital Imaging With Supplement


This is a 25-year best seller rewritten for today's students. Rosen and DeVries have completely updated and revised their classic text, "Introduction to Photography", to meet the needs of today's students who work with both film and digital materials. The new text presents traditional photographic technique as in previous editions but with content updated to reflect advances in technology. In addition, the theories, tools and practices of digital imaging are thoroughly covered and integrated throughout the text. The text works well for those who use either traditional or digital imaging techniques exclusively in their courses, as well as those who've developed hybrid courses using both. "Photography and Digital Imaging, Fifth Edition", is the guide your students need to learn how to communicate visually through photography! The comprehensive text covers the skills needed to make effective photographic images and to process, print, and finish them using either traditional or digital technologies. The new 5th edition retains features that work. No skimping on information to make a "lite" book. It includes a comprehensive and thorough treatment of topics. It includes: lavish use of quality illustrations; field and laboratory exercises; modular approach with learning objectives and key concepts; practice tests and explanatory answer keys; and illustrated step-by-step boxes guide the student through photographic techniques. It provides up-to-date working practices for both; covers digital and film cameras; chemical and digital photography; scanners, scanning and file formats; and new films, photographic materials and digital sensors. Two completely new chapters cover beginning and advanced Digital Print Making. Over 20 new step-by-step boxes teach the techniques of the digital darkroom. Special topic sections include: Famous photographs and master photographers; Careers in photography; Creative printing techniques; Making fine digital prints; Available light photography; Large format photography; Processing for permanence; Safe handling of photo chemicals; and Law and ethics for photographers. The self-directing feature of "Photography and Digital Imaging" allows students to instruct themselves in basic skills and procedures. Each unit includes an overview of relevant theories to furnish a conceptual background, then step-by-step boxes guide the students through the fundamental processes of chemical and digital photography. The instructor's role can thus be more tutorial or image-based, allowing the student-teacher interaction to adjust to the needs of individual students. Because successful photography also depends on a photographer's perception and style, the book encourages students to seek out subjects that interest them and guides them in communicating information, ideas, and feelings effectively by visual means. Students are motivated by peer examples and this edition continues the practice of using student works to illustrate the various principles. Students recognize that these achievements are within their grasp, that students like themselves produced the images. Dual platform CD-ROM included with each text contains: valuable software for image editing full-color versions of selected photographs; practice tests and explanatory answer keys; listing of helpful and relevant web sites; equipment and supply sources; professional organizations and hotlines; workshop and program information; publications; tables of current films and materials; time and temperature charts; model release form; client licensing agreement; approximate equivalent focal lengths for access to authors' companion website; various film formats; and personal film developing sheet for recording specific film developing data. It contains a software that includes such features as teaching suggestions, discussion points, test items, and transparency masters.
