Whether as a primer or a reference manual, the Analogue Photography Book - Reference Manual for Shooting Film is the perfect book to (re)kindle your love of film photography.
It also makes the perfect gift for the film photographer in your life!
You may have found an old Konica at the thrift store or inherited a Leica, or you may be one of the many younger photographers who are being drawn to analogue for the first time, as a way to enrich and expand their practice. In either case, this book provides all the information needed to help you understand your camera and get out and start using it.
The fundamental technical sides of both cameras and photography are covered. There are, however, no tips on how to take ‘better’ photos, no sections on lines and shapes, silhouettes, texture or composition. This is purely a technical manual: once you have mastered the mechanics of photography, you will have total creative control over your camera, a tool for taking photos exactly as you want them.
"This is a book about the beauty of analogue photography, and a celebration of all these breathtaking magical cameras. It will connect these devices with a new generation of photographers, helping them not only to fall in love with them but also start using them again, with passion"

Brilliant book for those just getting into film photography and perhaps some more experienced people who would love to learn a few extra tips. Jam packed full of information. Although it’s a bit bigger than a standard paperback book it’s a great size if you were to take it on holiday or a journey.
This book is very informative and useful even if you are an enthusiast. Love the paper the book is printed on too, great feel
Glad I bought this as its a great book to refer to for specific topics as they crop up. All the solutions in one book instead of searching around. Was a good buy for sure
As I'm new to film photography this is a must have book, it's helping me with the differences from shooting digital which I'm used to and makes shooting film easier.
Can't recommend this book highly enough for beginners to get it. And it's also makes shooting my lomo cosmic 35 easier to understand.
A must on any budding film photographers book shelf.
For anyone coming to film for the first time this book will be a real help. My first job at 17 was D&P printer at Ilford Labs in Cricklewood so have been brought on film and sunshine 16! But I still found lots of interesting pieces in the book that I had forgotten so this is thoroughly recommended. Just about to finish film in the next few days so will send in soon.
