Whereas many other methods of holography are complicated and require expensive equipment and a background in mathematics and optics, John Iovine provides readers with a portable, simplified system that requires a minimum of expense (around $200) and very little math, yet produces a variety of quality holograms. The construction of all projects is kept simple and well-detailed, showing how to create and produce basic and increasingly complex high quality holograms. Containing over 120 illustrations and photographs, Holography for Photographers details a simple tabletop style of producing holograms that utilizes a magnetic mounting system rather than a sand table. The equipment is simple and portable making this method ideal for schools, hobbyists, and amateurs, as well as experienced photographers. It allows photographers to experiment with white light reflection, transmission, split-beam, stereographic, and color holograms. In addition, Holography for Photographers provides insight into post processing set-ups for copying and creating reflection holograms from transmission holograms. Emphasis is placed on creating white light reflection holograms that are viewable with standard lighting. Holography for Photographers is a detailed how-to book teaching exciting techniques for creating holograms and would be a valuable addition to any photographers library. John Iovine is a freelance writer and photographer who possesses a wealth of experience in all aspects of photography, electronics, and holography. He has written a number of books including Guide to Kirilian Photography, Homemade Holograms, Electronic Projects for Your Commodore 64, and Fantastic Electronics. He has also published articles in Camera and Darkroom, Astronomy, and several electronics hobbyist magazines.
