Overview

An essential resource for understanding how photography works and how to solve the many problems photographers face when learning this trade. It deals with the fundamental principles upon which the photographic process is based and presents the principles in a practical manner.

The new edition of this classic text has been updated to include a new chapter on Digital Imaging. This important addition covers, in depth, everything photographers need to know in order to be completely up-to-date on the digital aspects of photography. This book is heavily illustrated with helpful photographs and line drawings, and also includes a special color insert. Since Basic Photographic Materials and Processes deals with the capturing, recording, and reproduction of visual images, the principles discussed have direct applications to graphic arts printing, graphic design, computer graphics and electronic imaging.

Learn about converting analog to digital- bits to gray levels, brightness resolution, and spatial resolution

Covers image processing basics- concepts, filters, color spaces

Up-to-date information on storage of Digital Images- magnetic, optical, electrical, CD Media, and Digital Printing

Audience: Photography students and professional photographers.

Meet the Author

Richard Zakia is a 1956 graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). Some of his classmates at the time were Carl Chiarenza, Peter Bunnell, Bruce Davidson, Ken Josephson, Pete Turner and Jerry Uelsmann. Minor White was a member of the faculty and Beaumont Newhall was Adjunct. It was a great and enriching mix. After graduation he was employed as a photographic engineer in the Color Technology Division of Eastman Kodak. During the Sputnik era he decided teaching was his vocation and accepted a position with RIT where he served for 34 years. For a time he was Director of Instructional Research and Development and Chair of the Fine Art Photography Department and graduate program in Imaging Arts. He is a recipient of the Eisenhart Outstanding Teaching Award. Zakia has authored and co-authored thirteen books on photography and perception. He is also the co-editor with Dr. Leslie Stroebel of the third edition (1993) of The Focal Encyclopedia of Photography and a contributor to the fourth edition (2007). His most recent book is Teaching Photography with Dr. Glen Rand.

    Useful for the class it's intended to teach,

    I'm in RIT's M&P class, they basically wrote the book for this class years ago. RIT is the number one photo school in the nation, argueably. I go to RIT this book has all the answers to figuring out the difficult problems posed to us in class. It is especially useful when you have a professor and isn't really a good book for someone not in a photo class such as M&P, something similar in my mind that is more interesting and a little easier to understand is "The Negative" by A. Adams. But I get more out of the negative when I read it over, due to the things I learned in this book.

    Save your money!

    This is the most disappointing $60 investment I've made in recent years. Most of the info is so boring, technical & arcane that I have no idea who could possibly benefit from reading this book except the authors & publishers.
