Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
Lights, camera, action! This hardcover book, from the "Young Scientist Concepts and Projects" series, is loaded with fascinating and useful information for the budding photographer. The emphasis is on the interactive in this discussion of the scientific principles behind the art of still and motion photography. Each component of the modern camera is described in simple terms; and its workings explained very nicely using color photographs and diagrams. The explanations are further enhanced by simple projects that young readers may choose to do at home or in the classroom, in order to experience first-hand the wonders of photographic processes, such as the construction of a pinhole camera that uses photographic paper instead of film to capture its images. Also included is a brief overview of how cameras and related photo-technology is expanding our scientific knowledge of such diverse worlds as the microcosm of a human blood cell to the far reaches of outer space. Includes glossary, index and listing of print, video and web site resources for further information.
