Originally published in 1941, this book seeks to inform the scientific community of the possible uses of photography in research or teaching. Lawrence gives an account of the possibilities and limitations of the medium for the scientific reader as well as for the 'serious amateur', explains the various mechanisms of the camera and gives some suggestions for scientific applications, such as high-speed photography. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in photography or the history of science.
