Re: Textbook for Photo


Date: Sat Apr 06 2002 - 06:46:24 PST

This is my second semester using this book: The New Joy of Photography (by
the editors of Eastman Kodak Company) Addison-Wesley Publishing Company. My
edition is c.1985 -but I would think they have one more current.
During my first semester teaching beginning photo- I tooks parts of this book
and copied parts of other books and gave my students a "piecemeal" of
information. The first half of my second semester I took my students through
this entire book (with the exception of the Color development pages) and I am
seeing a great improvement over last semester's students "understanding" of
photography. Some chapter headings under the "VISION" section 1 are...
                                 Learning to See
                                 Capturing the decisive moment
                                 Identifying the elements of a good photograph
                                 Arranging and composing pictures
                                 Studying the language of light
They also have a section 2 labled the "TOOLS"
Section 3- the "IMAGE"
Section 4- the "PROCESS"
Section 5- the "JOY"
Hope this helps...Kathy in Kalamazoo
