Handbook of the Photographs Collection
BY WESTON NAEF
Also in category of inspiring and informative is the tightly
packed paperback from the Getty. Ranging from the 1830s to
the 1960s, these photographs provide an informal history of
the form and offer a rich sampling of the Getty's holdings.
Julia Margaret Cameron, Alfred Stieglitz, Eugene Atget, Andre
Kertesz, Walker Evans, and Diana Arbus are among the more
than 100 masters whose works are reproduced in this book.
Courses Publishing Company
BY DENNIS P. CURTAIN
Curtain worked for Prentice-Hall and Little, Brown as an editor
and such before launching off on his own publishing company.
Back then, he had a series of Short Course camera manuals
that sold a million copies. His new series of manuals cover
Nikon, Canon, Olympus digital cameras (sorry, no Sony) in-depth.
Beginner's might try his Short
Course in Using Your Digital Camera e-book, or Choosing
and Using a Digital Camera (2nd Edition). A little pricey,
but his insights are spot on. There's also quite a bit of
free information on his web site.
