Ultimate Exposure

David Nightingale
Authors:
David Nightingale

You don't need a book to take good photos any more; most (but not all) of the time your camera, or your phone, will handle things for you. But if you don't know what it's doing - you don't know how to expose photos - you can't join in the real fun of photography.With this book, though, you'll quickly master the key principles, and grasp a few simple concepts that will open up a world of beautiful sunsets, clever silhouettes, light trails and bokeh - as well as sophisticated techniques like HDR, manual exposure blending, and focus stacking.Armed with this knowledge the digital photos you share will stand head-and-shoulders above the rest, and you'll have no problem using that film camera or used Polaroid you picked up at that garage-sale.

Miller's Arts & Crafts

Judith Miller
Authors:
Judith Miller

'...one of the most friendly, easygoing and instructive books on the design movement' Chicago TribuneArts & Crafts is one of the most influential design movements of all time, beginning in the late 19th century and still being explored by designers today. The Arts & Crafts ethos - rejecting mass production and industrialization in favour of individualism, simplicity, honest craftsmanship, respect for materials and good design - had a massive impact on the design of the early 20th century and transformed design sensibilities globally. This invaluable guide covers furniture, ceramics, silver and metalware, glass, textiles, jewellery, books and posters, and includes fascinating profiles of key designers such as William Morris, the Stickleys, Liberty & Co, Tiffany Studios, George Ohr, Rookwood and many more. It comes with a pictorial design directory, price ranges and a wealth of essential information for collectors and anyone wishing to follow William Morris's golden rule of Arts & Crafts: 'Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.'
