Practical Professional Photography

Nature volume 71, page 248 (12 January 1905) | Download Citation



THESE two volumes form a very useful addition to the Photography bookshelf series, of which they form Nos. 17 and 18. Although the author does not profess to go into any great detail, he gives an excellent account of the necessary requirements of the professional photographer, from the choice of business premises, the handling of customers, book-keeping, &c., down to the packing up of the finished pictures and their dispatch. The chapters on portraiture, composition, and lighting are especially satisfactory, and many a valuable hint is contained therein.
