This newly revised edition of Bryan Peterson's most popular book demystifies the complex concepts of exposure in photography, allowing readers to capture the images they want.
With his trademark accessible style, Peterson instructs readers on how to achieve successful images in almost any situation, explaining the fundamentals of exposure and its component parts of light, aperture, and shutter speed. With an emphasis on getting the best exposure even in tricky situations, Understanding Exposure shows how to get (or lose) sharpness and contrast in images, how to freeze action, and how to take the best meter readings, while also exploring filters, flash, and light. With all new images, and updated captions throughout, this revised edition is sure to be as popular as ever.
OK so my very first thought was this book was not at all what I thought it was…I guess I wanted a more cut and dry this is how it works book….but once I actually sat down and started reading it I realized that it was better than that kind of book. This book not only helped you see how things worked but he also shared some of his experience and such.
Some of the points I’m still not sure I understand…I’m using my phones camera in manual, so even though its a good camera I cant adjust the aperture. I’]m excited to see what els I can learn and I think this will be a book I go back to a few times and share with others
