Astronaut’s Photography Manual

September 30, 2011 § Leave a comment

I have an interest both in spaceflight and Hasselblads, so I was very excited when I found that Hasselblad has made their 1984 NASA Astronaut’s Photography Manual available to the public.

As a guidebook for the NASA Photography Training Program, it not only describes the operation of the Hasselblad 500 EL/M cameras used on the U. S. Space Shuttle but is also a concise manual on photography to assist astronauts in creating the best possible space photographs.

Hasselblad cameras have performed with precision on every manned space flight since 1962 and undoubtedly future missions will continue to yield those awe-inspiring and beautiful images from space – a priceless pictorial legacy for future generations.

A lot of the info applies to all photography, but I love that all the examples are taken from space shuttle travel.
