Photographer and educator Jim Stone recently released new editions of two of his popular books, written with Barbara London.
A Short Course in Photography, 8th edition, introduces students to the fundamentals of photography and suggests ways in which they might create photographs that have meaning. With a special focus on black and white photography, the book also explores digital techniques and web photography resources, equipment, cameras and camera accessories, the exposure and development of film, and the making and finishing of prints.
After a very successful first edition, the second edition of A Short Course in Digital Photography returns with the most up-to-date industry knowledge.
Jim turned to photography while studying engineering at MIT. His photographs have been exhibited and published internationally, and collected by the Museum of Modern Art, Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among many others. Many of his books are in wide and continued use for university-level courses.
He returns to Maine this summer to teach Introduction to View Camera July 31 – August 6.
