How To Photograph an Atomic Bomb - App Review

AppDictions App Review
If you enjoy photography, atomic science, and/or history, this is the book for you.  The 2006 book, How to Photograph an Atomic Bomb, analyzes and gives first-hand depictions of atomic bomb blasts between 1945 and 1963.  For the photography enthusiast, author Peter Kuran provides the details that were perfected by the brave cinematographers that were willing to film these nuclear blasts.  For those interested in the science behind the atomic blasts, there are details on blastwaves, thermal/nuclear radiation, and illumination.  For the history buffs, Kuran does an excellent job describing the history of the US Government nuclear testing era.  

The most interesting aspect of this application is in the pictures & videos.  Crystal-clear images in both black and white & color show you haunting views of the preparation, process, and aftermath of an atomic blast.  There are short videos throughout the book that get you even closer to the actual blasts and shockwaves.  Another useful feature is the appendices – providing interested parties with all of the still/motion camera models used, as well the type of film used.  A great read that is both informative and genuinely interesting.
