New Book: Exploring Ultraviolet Photography

Book cover

A book has been recently published, which looks very useful for anybody with an interest in UV photography. It is brief, and explanations clear, but thorough about technical details. Lot of good practical advice is provided, and in the final chapter examples of different applications of UV photography are given. I haven’t yet finished reading it, but what I have read I have liked. I proper review will be published in the Bulletin.

One Comment:

  1. After reading the remaining of the book, I must say that my enthusiasm has to some extent faded away. I see two problem. The book focuses too much on the equipment the author himself uses, which means that the book will not age well. I have noticed some errors of fact in relation to filters. Overall, I still think the book will be useful to anybody interested in, but not yet familiar with, the requirements and uses of UV photography.
