KIRKUS REVIEW

The sportsman who wants to have a permanent record of his trip will find that photography is the answer. But in this how-to book, Mr. Simmons shows how important it is to master the know-how, to plan well in advance what is wanted and how to got it. The Where- What- How- Who-When of securing the record; the importance of working through a sort of ""scenario"" if the record is to be a movie; details to remember as to clothing, motion, direction, timing; the importance of titling as you go. Then he goes into fairly technical details as to equipment,- camera, film slides, flash equipment, triped, exposure meter, filters, carrying case. He discusses the importance of knowing your lens, of studying color, how to see it, how to get it. He summarizes basic rules of composition. And then he goes into the real purpose and aim- the photographing of game, learning how to come close to the subject, specializing on photographing fish, birds, small game and large, jungle photography, photography from a plane, use of slow motion for accuracy. And finally, editing your film for effective showing. Illustrated. Good gift item for the hard-to-find-the-right- gift sportsman.
