Last week I launched the science/photo-BLOG: http://photophys.com
This BLOG is devoted of all aspects of science and technology related to photography. In addition to discussing lenses, sensors, color theory, etc., I am previewing chapters of my new book, "Science for the Curious Photographer." At this point I have posted drafts of the first six chapters.
1. What is photography?
2. What is light?
3. The camera
4. Images: What is perspective?
5. Why does a camera need a lens?
6. Elementary optics. How do lenses work?
The tentative table of contents is listed in my first post to the BLOG. I hope to get comments and criticism that will help me improve this first draft. Also, suggestions for types of photographs and illustrations that will enhance the presentation are appreciated.
I really want candid opinions. Problems with the level of the presentation will be more evident in later chapters where more math appears. Of course, comments are easy since it is a BLOG.
