Jerry Spagnoli is one of the world's foremost daguerreotypists and this book brings together the last decade of his work, including selections from his Western Landscape and Anatomical Studies series and a comprehensive presentation of his documentary series The Last Great Daguerreian Survey of the Twentieth Century. Adopting a narrative form which unifies what at first appears to be disparate subjects, the viewer is led on a journey through a world distilled through the idiosyncratic perspective of the daguerreotype, a world which is both familiar and uncanny. Daguerreotypes have long been noted for their accuracy and veracity. In the hands of Spagnoli the technical limitations of the medium, the long exposures, odd tonalities, shallow focus and the necessity of large cumbersome cameras, are exploited to produce images which are at once completely objective yet intensely personal.

Canon Rebel T4i / Eos 650d
The Expanded Guide
Paperback ISBN: 1907708960
The Rebel T4i/EOS 650D is the latest in a long line of Rebel/XXXD series DSLR cameras that began with the Digital Rebel/300D camera of 2003. The Rebel T4i/EOS 650D features some intriguing new technology: the most significant change is the Hybrid CMOS AF system that improves the speed of focus when shooting still images and movies in Live View. It’s also the first Canon DSLR that can continuously autofocus when recording movies, and is equipped with a stereo microphone as well as a jack to plug in an external microphone. The Rebel T4i/EOS 650D is also the first Canon DSLR to feature a touch-sensitive LCD. Virtually all of the camera’s operations can be set using the 3-inch (7.7-cm) LCD rather than using the physical buttons on the camera body. To make the use of the LCD easier, the panel is hinged and can be set in a variety of positions allowing the camera to be used overhead or down low, close to the ground, more easily.
