Review:

"A useful resource for understanding lens construction and what a lens is really capable of doing if it is built properly." --ronmart.blogspot.com

Synopsis:

Learn the Impact That Lens Choice has on Every Photograph; Lens selection not only determines what can be done with a camera - and how easily - but the quality of the image produced.

Approaching the topic from a photographer's point of view with clear and detailed explanations and illustrations, Photographic Lenses precisely targets the information photographers need to have a deeper more technical understanding of their craft. Includes; The characteristics and optics of lenses. How various lens types work. Understanding lens specifications. The advantages and disadvantages of different lenses. Determining lens quality. Angle of view and area coverage. Understanding and controlling perspective. Correcting image distortions. Zooms, macros, telephotos, wide-angles, fisheyes, soft focus lenses and more!
