The Wonders of Photography—A Resource for Contemporary Photographers


The Wonders of Photography—A Resource for Contemporary Photographers is our newest, and at almost 500 pages, our longest title. As one reviewer said "it’s an entire course with everything student’s need to understand not only the techniques of photography but also its history as a fine art."

  • The book was written from the beginning to be an eBook so length was not an influence on what to include as it is with printed books. Much of the added length consists of learning activities at the end of each topic that include tips, resources to explore, see for yourself suggestions, and questions to test your understanding. At the end of each chapter is a section on projects that, in many cases, introduce key figures in the history of photography including Paul Strand, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adamas, Diane Arbus and many more. At the end of most chapters is a gallery featuring a contemporary photographer who has won the respect of his or her peers, had gallery shows, and has photographs in private and public collections.
  • The large number of activities gathered here make it much easier to prepare for a course.
  • The book is heavily illustrated with great photos captured over the history of photography.
  • Since the book is organized into independent topics, it’s easy to assign only those you have time to cover and arrange them in any order while leaving the others for students to study on their own.
  • The book introduces students to how professionals think and work, and explains how well-known photographers used easy to learn techniques to create their own distinctive styles.

Using Your Digital Camera 5th Edition—A Guide to Great Photographs

Using Your Digital Camera at 132 pages is our shortest book. It focuses on the key concepts and procedures of photography—those things you need to capture creative images. Until the digital era arrived, photographers had only a few creative controls to work with—focus, aperture, shutter speed, film speed and flash. It’s on these classic controls, used to capture most of the great photographs in the history of photography, that this book focuses. It also covers all of the modern enhancements to these techniques such as AEB, exposure compensation, autofocus, multiple focus areas and so on. This is the ideal text for short courses or when activities, such as design or photo editing take up a large portion of the course.

PhotoCourse 2nd edition—An Interactive Multimedia eText

PhotoCourse has almost the same coverage as The Textbook Of Digital Photography but uses a visual approach supported by many animations and other learning resources. It was written with the thought in mind “that no one ever took a photography course to read”. This is the first textbook designed to appeal to visually oriented students, with text and illustration designed to be read on the computer screen or projected for a class.

Digital Rights Management and Returns

  • Our texts have no digital rights management software so you can easily display them on all of your devices and you are also free to make a printout for your own personal use.
  • In return for our exceptionally low prices and lack of troublesome digital rights management we ask that you purchase your own copy and not share it with others. If you are an instructor, we ask that you stress these points with your students during a discussion of copyrights.
  • Since CDs and downloads can be so easily copied we are unable to accept returns, especially given the low prices at which we sell them. There should be sufficient sample material for you to review on-line so you can buy with confidence.
