What Can Teach You The Basics Of Camera Better Than A Book That’s Literally A Camera?

Books on camera/photography are a dime a dozen, but nothing teaches you the basic principles of photography better than a book that’s literally a camera. This Book Is A Camera, published by Museum of Modern Art, is exactly that. It is a book on camera and it is also a camera. In other words, this is a working camera that resides in a pop-up book. Novel! In addition to providing the hardware, AKA a pinhole camera, this book also explains how photographs are made possible through the intrinsic properties of light. Now, we all know the theory, but there isn’t a better way to demonstrate that well-known theory through practical demonstration.

Archisutra Is Kama Sutra Disguised As An Architecture Design Manual

Someone Has Written A Book On “How To Seduce Women Through Photography” And We Are Not Amused

It is a well known fact that if you have the talent for musical instrument, particularly piano, you’d be able to impress girls. Or at least, that’s what I believe to be so. I insist piano is the key to “seducing women,” or just about any human being and I may be right about this – thanks to the countless viral YouTube videos pertaining to piano playing person. While having this notion ingrained in me, I never knew, nor believe a man could “seduce women,” let alone impress any with his skills in hitting the shutter. But that never stop one person by the name of Goldmund from writing a book relating to this topic which he (or was it a she?) inappropriately titled An Introduction to Camera Game: How to Seduce Women Through Photography (Robert Brown, ASIN B00WLA6VD2).
