    Basic Photo Series, book 5 (of 6). I haven't certainly (although I currently have the 1948 and 1964 editions of volume 2 (The Negative). I have just started thinking of trying to source a copy, but haven't done anything.

    It's strong (as you would expect) on the technical aspects of light measurement and associated development regimes; it inculcates the principles to follow, and the aesthetics involved but leaves the application to the photographer, who is expected to have a clear idea of what is to be achieved and only needs guidance on how to do it.

    The value of the book will be determined more by what you want to learn than the book's contents per se. For a (somewhat simpler) statement of principles together with exercises to consolidate them, I'd go to Andreas Feininger's Light and Lighting in Photography. From memory, for detailed instructions etc. I'd use The Studio Photographer's Lighting Bible by Calvey Taylor-Haw.

    I have both these books Ian and you are welcome to have a look at then, however, they are both being stored for me and I can't access them until early in the new year.
