Field Photography aims to help readers to produce professional-quality nature photographs. Author Alfred Blaker - former Head of the University of California Scientific Photographic Laboratory - gives clear and proven advice on how to obtain publication-grade photographs under a wide variety of field conditions. Here is helpful information on choosing the correct films, lenses, and processing methods; obtaining correct exposures under normal, adverse, and unusual lighting conditions; using flash for a wide variety of purposes; infrared and ultraviolet photography; the selection and use of filters; the Zone System and its variants; high-resolution 35mm photography, ecologically sound field photography; and many other topics.
Field Photography is illustrated with more than 70 original photographs (21 in full colour) and 85 drawings, and the entire book is printed on high-quality paper. The black-and-white plates have been reproduced by a duotone process that gives them a quality closely approximating the original photographs.
