• À l'ère du tout numérique, une nouvelle génération de photographes découvre ou redécouvre les plaisirs de la pellicule. Photographe passionné, Chris Gatcum propose dans cet ouvrage un guide d'introduction aux grands principes de la photo argentique. Après avoir présenté le fonctionnement d'un film et rappelé les critères pour choisir le boîtier idéal, il explore les techniques indispensables pour maîtriser l'art de l'argentique - comment trouver l'exposition correcte sans écran de contrôle, comment utiliser le flash sans le système TTL, comment exploiter au mieux les filtres - puis nous plonge dans l'univers passionant des sténopés pour finir par un tour d'horizon des possibilités créatives qu'offre le développement, en couleurs comme en noir et blanc.
    Au fil de l'ouvrage, des acteurs majeurs de la photographie argentique partagent leur savoir-faire et leurs images spectaculaires à travers d'inspirants portraits.
