At school the topic that interested me the most in physics was optics and the properties of light.
I’ve pretty much forgotten what I learnt and decided to get a book to refresh my memory.
It might never come in handy for everyday use but there is no harm in knowing the science behind how lenses work and the scientific theories of light.
2 June 2016 Having had a bit of time to have a look through this book Optics Demystified by Stan Gibilisco is a really useful guide to explain the principles behind chromatic aberration, lenses, inverse square law amongst other things in as simple a language as possible.
I’m not sure how much of the information is sinking into my tiny brain but at least I have a better understanding of the science behind the equipment I’m operating on a day to day basis.
