A comprehensive text to help students gain and practice the basics of photography. They learn about the exposure triangle and are offered exercises to practice the settings of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. Focus area/mode, flash, meter, white balance settings are also included, along with a chapter on composition. This book offers a nuts and bolts approach to taking pictures with the purpose of moving the student from technical terms to everyday practical use of the camera. This book would nicely serve a teacher who runs the school's photography club, yearbook, or newspaper. The reading level measures at grade 8.7, so it could be used from middle school through high school. This book was written after a strong interest was shown by an abbreviated version (Teaching Digital Photography to Middle and High School Students ) by the same author.
