THE FIRST BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Here are fine basics for picture taking that go on to explain the why's and wherefore's of an occupation that is an absorbing science as well. The camera used is a simple box camera, but the approach through it will open a new world for interested youngsters . First things are first: leading the camera, picture planning for story and composition, lighting, simple flash. Technical explanations are solid and simple: the camera is compared to the eye and focal length, shutter speed, light, and film sensitivity are all understandable. At the end there are suggestions for simple semi-darkroom work and plenty of inspiration to go on to your own developing and enlarging.
