Points of interest:
In a large image database such as Scran there is a wealth of material to illustrate the principles of photography. The authors here have made a great job of scouring Scran for some of the best examples of good photographic practice. Highlights of this resource include the very clear, practical advice and the multitude of examples available to illustrate each point. This is particularly useful given shortage of good quality exemplar material in this subject area, particularly those which can be used independently of the tutor.
