By Michael Langford

The past due Michael Langford was once essentially the most fashionable and acomplished authors of images essays. His works are unmatched of their analitical intensity, concentrate on the elemental principals and mechanisms in images, but additionally of their severe educational strategy at the subject.
complex images including its spouse quantity easy images are in my view actually useful resource of good written, instructive details, overlaying approximately each point of the photographic process.
at the present time the place there's stifling overabundance of shallow, uninspiring and downright dead "textbooks", that are not able to educate you something, complex images and simple images stand as common surroundings, distinct tutorials. Very hugely recomended.

Example text

This section of the curve has a constant slope, and in addition, the gradient of the slope here is greater than in any other part of the curve. In the straight-line section of the characteristic curve, there is an equal increase in density for an equal increase in exposure. This is the most important part of the curve. Subject exposures that fall on the straight line produce constant density differences. Shoulder Section The upper section of the curve (fig. 2-6) is a convex, curved line that gradually decreases in slope.

This wait allows large particles to settle or turbidity (caused by aeration) to clear. Chemical Certification The chemical certification of processing solutions seldom requires a complete chemical analysis. Ordinarily, determining the pH and the specific gravity of the solution is enough, particularly when these tests are followed up with valid sensitometric tests. —pH is one of the first tests made of a photographic solution. The pH of a solution is the negative logarithm of the hydrogen ion concentration.

Log Exposure Range The useful exposure range includes part of both extremities (toe and shoulder) as well as the straight-line section of the curve. For ground pictorial film the useful exposure range of a sensitized material is greater than the emulsion latitude, since portions of the toe and shoulder regions of the curve are used without sacrificing print quality. 10 above the gross fog of the film. This point is referred to as minimum useful density. The upper limit is generally located at 90 percent of maximum density on the shoulder of the curve and is referred to as maximum useful density.
