This book explores alternative ways of understanding Havana both as an imagined political construct and as a cultural product. It provides a vision of how and why we see the city as we do and evaluates the ways in which images of Havana have been (mis)constructed in the global imaginary. Bringing out interactions and tensions between real and imaginary spaces, it examines the political implications of unique spatial and metaphorical representations of the city and explores the crucial role that image-makers and cultural producers have played in the global perception of Havana through photography, material culture and documentary film.

This book analyzes how the Global Financial Crisis is portrayed in contemporary popular culture, using examples from film, literature and photography. In particular, the book explores why particular urban spaces, infrastructures and aesthetics ? such as skyline shots in the opening credits of financial crisis films ? recur in contemporary crisis narratives. Why are cities and finance connected in the cultural imaginary? Which ideologies do urban crisis imaginaries communicate? How do these imaginaries relate to the notion of crisis? To consider these questions, the book reads crisis narratives through the lens of myth. It combines perspectives from cultural, media and communication studies, anthropology, philosophy, geography and political economy to argue that the concept of myth can offer new and nuanced insights into the structure and politics of popular financial crisis imaginaries. In so doing, the book also asks if, how and under what conditions urban crisis imaginaries open up or foreclose systematic and political understandings of the Global Financial Crisis as a symptom of the broader process of financialization.
This book is based around the author?s beautiful and sometimes awe-inspiring color images and mosaics of deep-sky objects. The book describes how similar Hubble class images can be created by amateur astronomers in their back garden using commercially available telescopes and CCD cameras. Subsequent processing and image enhancement in the electronic darkroom is covered in detail as well. A range of telescopes and equipment is considered, from the author?s 11-inch with Hyperstar camera, down to more affordable instruments. Appendices provide links to free software ? not available from a single source ? and are themselves an invaluable resource.
This unique volume by two renowned astrophotographers unveils the science and history behind 100 of the most significant astronomical images of all time. The authors have carefully selected their list of images from across time and technology to bring to the reader the most relevant photographic images spanning all eras of modern astronomical history. Based on scientific evidence today we have a basic notion of how Earth and the universe came to be. The road to this knowledge was paved with 175 years of astronomical images acquired by the coupling of two revolutionary technologies ? the camera and telescope. With ingenuity and determination humankind would quickly embrace these technologies to tell the story of the cosmos and unravel its mysteries. This book presents in pictures and words a photographic chronology of our aspiration to understand the universe. From the first fledgling attempts to photograph the Moon, planets, and stars to the marvels of orbiting observatories that record the cosmos at energies beyond the range of human vision, astronomers have always relied on images to break through to the next level of understanding. A subset of these breakthrough images has profound significance in documenting some of the greatest milestones in modern astronomy.

Anhand der Arbeit namhafter Vertreterinnen und Vertreter des Fotojournalismus erl�utert der Band die Entstehung und die Entwicklung des Genres seit Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts, unter Einbeziehung technischer, kultureller, wirtschaftlicher, vor allem aber auch politischer Rahmenbedingungen. Gleichzeitig wird f�r die Zukunft die Frage abgeleitet, wohin sich der Fotojournalismus angesichts einer volldigitalisierten Medienlandschaft und einer mit Handy-Kameras durchsetzten Gesellschaft entwickelt.
Here are clear explanations of how to make superb astronomical deep-sky images using only a DSLR or webcam and an astronomical telescope ? no expensive dedicated CCD cameras needed!
The book is written for amateur astronomers interested in budget astrophotography ? the deep sky, not just the Moon and planets ? and for those who want to improve their imaging skills using DSLR and webcams. It is even possible to use existing (non-specialist astronomical) equipment for scientific applications such as high resolution planetary and lunar photography, astrometry, photometry, and spectroscopy.
The introduction of the CCD revolutionized astrophotography. The availability of this technology to the amateur astronomy community has allowed advanced science and imaging techniques to become available to almost anyone willing to take the time to learn a few, simple techniques. Specialized cooled-chip CCD imagers are capable of superb results in the right hands ? but they are all very expensive. If budget is important, the reader is advised on using a standard camera instead.
Jensen provides techniques useful in acquiring beautiful high-quality images and high level scientific data in one accessible and easy-to-read book. It introduces techniques that will allow the reader to use more economical DSLR cameras ? that are of course also used for day-to-day photography ? to produce images and data of high quality, without a large cash investment.
No longer are heavy, sturdy, expensive mounts and tripods required to photograph deep space. With today's advances in technology, all that is required is an entry-DSLR and an entry level GoTo telescope. Here is all of the information needed to start photographing the night sky without buying expensive tracking mounts. By using multiple short exposures and combining them with mostly ?freeware? computer programs, the effect of image rotation can be minimized to a point where it is undetectable in normal astrophotography, even for a deep-sky object such as a galaxy or nebula. All the processes, techniques, and equipment needed to use inexpensive, lightweight altazimuth and equatorial mounts and very short exposures photography to image deep space objects are explained, step-by-step, in full detail, supported by clear, easy to understand graphics and photographs.
Currently available lightweight mounts and tripods are identified and examined from an economic versus capability perspective to help users determine what camera, telescope, and mount is the best fit for them. A similar analysis is presented for entry-level telescopes and mounts sold as bundled packages by the telescope manufacturers. This book lifts the veil of mystery from the creation of deep space photographs and makes astrophotography affordable and accessible to most amateur astronomers.
