About this book

Everything you need to know about photography, both digital and film, written by a team of experts. This comprehensive and superbly illustrated guide covers all aspects from basic composition to the latest digital know-how and digital darkroom techniques.

Photography is one of the world's most popular pastimes and nearly everyone owns a camera of some kind, even if it's just on a mobile phone. Most people have now gone digital, although there are some who still swear by film. Collins Complete Photography Manual takes you through the basics, from choosing the right camera and understanding what different lenses can achieve to key techniques such as image manipulation. Each technique is illustrated with stunning images and accompanied by easy-to-follow jargon-free text.

There are separate sections on different themes, such as landscapes and nature, still life and sports shots, architecture, weddings, animals, and how to take a good portrait. In addition, professional tips throughout help you to avoid potential problems and show you how to get the best out of your camera and raise your level of photography.
