Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–8—This introductory work begins with a historical overview that highlights both important technological advances from the daguerreotype process to the digital age and significant pictures such as the first photos of a nuclear explosion and the Wright Brothers' flight. Brief biographies of eight master photographers, among them Ansel Adams, Gordon Parks, and Dorothea Lange, focus on their unique contributions to the art form. The second part of the book concentrates on techniques for taking better photos. Subjects such as "Capturing Action," "Playing the Angles," portraiture, and landscapes are covered, along with the unique issues involved in photographing pets, using pictures to tell a story, creating funny photos, and editing. Clear color and black-and-white photos effectively demonstrate the suggestions offered. A solid, well-organized, and useful resource.—Carol Schene, formerly at Taunton Public Schools, MA
