Painting With the Sun. A First Book of Photography.
Suid, Murray; And Others
Based on the premise that photography can help us to see the world in a different, richer way, this booklet is designed to encourage and instruct young beginners in the art of photography. The presentation of written information is simple and kept to a minimum, and the ideas are liberally illustrated. The format is problem-oriented--problems are presented in each of the chapters which are designed to establish a deeper understanding of photography through actual practice with the materials. The first few chapters serve as an introduction, briefly discussing the purpose of the booklet and describing the way photography works. Other chapters consider preparation, what to photograph, "thing" subjects, person subjects, place subjects, happening subjects, ways to improve photographs, judging photographs, writing captions, writing from pictures, and photographic comic strips. A final section offers information, imagination, and autobiography projects. (SH)
