ON THE BACK COVER -
Most people really like the pictures they snap. Many are bothered, though, by a nagging suspicion that they could do even better, but that the price of increased proficiency would be lots of money, lots of intricate equipment, and lots of wrestling with technical complexities.
This isn't so and How to Make Good Pictures proves it. In all of its 192 pages there's hardly a word that would confuse a rank beginner. It is a book devoted to the premise that the easy way is usually the best way and that a panoply of gadgetry may swell the ego, but won't necessarily improve either the fun or the results of snapshooting.
To advance this idea, it first outlines the basic essentials of making sharp pictures and a few of the little tricks that turn a sharp picture into a really good one. Then, there are extensive sections full of well-tested ideas for obtaining better black-and-white and color snapshots of babies, children, adults, animals, scenery, flowers, sports; of special events and vacations; and on trick photography.
Its chapters on indoor shooting cover not only the conventional means but some extremely easy ways of snapping fine pictures by the natural, existing light. In addition, it explains the workings of exposure meters, color films, and just what happens inside film to create a picture.
This entirely new, up-to-date edition of the world's most popular book on picture taking will help almost anyone with any kind of camera get more pleasure and satisfaction out of his photographic activities. Its more than four hundred illustrations, many in full color, alone provide enough good snapshot ides to keep most people profitably occupied for a long, long time.
