Small in size but big on content, the "little red book," as MarshallTyler describes it, is filled with essential information every ophthalmicphotographer needs to know to take good-quality fundus photographs.
For those of us who teach many of the essential elements of good-qualityfundus photography to students working on clinical trials or ophthalmologystudies, this book is a welcome reference manual. But its utility doesn'tstop there. Not surprisingly, the elements of good-quality study photographyare also requirements in everyday clinical photography. We need photographswith good focus and clarity; properly aligned, exposed, and positioned onthe correct field; and with adequate stereo effect. This book teaches thesebasics and will be invaluable to every ophthalmic photographer.
