The past decade has given rise to the new age of digital photography, so Looking at Photographs, first published in 1991, has been revised and updated to define and illustrate terms from the earliest processes to this new technology. At once a rich and informative glossary and a history of the medium, this fully illustrated guide will be invaluable to all those wishing to increase their understanding and enjoyment of the art of photography.Hide synopsis

Getty Institute researcher does a great job of defining technical terms, but the bonus here is not only accuracy, clarity and brevity in that department, but also an engaging and unusual selection of illustrations, including (rare in this type of book) color photographs. With Gilles Mora's PHOTOSPEAK and Alan Trachtenberg's collection of historic writings on photography, a must have for any photo enthusiast or writer who has to do with photography. There is a newer edition: get the newest you can for most digital camera-related terminology, but if primarily interested in older types of photography, such as calotypes and so forth, this edition is just fine.
