SUCCESSFUL COLOR PHOTOGRAPHY

For the advanced amateur and student of professional work, the author of several books on photography (see Successful Photography 1953) has written a splendidly detailed handbook on techniques and artistic principles involved in color work. An introductory comparison sets off the field from its companion- black and white photography- stating the differences in film speed, latitude, control, development and color's more realistic end product, Enlarging on these, and maintaining that color should be used where it is more important than form, there is ample a material on its scope and limits, the equipment for it, the physics of light, the physiology of the eye and the chemistry of the film and its development. Last chapters on experimentation and printing complete an invaluable and definitive text that should serve as stock item for years to come.
