Understanding Exposure Book Review


 About the Book

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.

Understanding Exposure has taught generations of photographers how to shoot the images they want by demystifying the complex concepts of exposure in photography. In this newly updated edition, veteran photographer Bryan Peterson explains the fundamentals of light, aperture, and shutter speed and how they interact with and influence one another. With an emphasis on finding the right exposure even in tricky situations, Understanding Exposure shows you how to get (or lose) sharpness and contrast in images, freeze action, and take the best meter readings, while also exploring filters, flash, and light. With all new images, as well as an expanded section on flash, tips for using colored gels, and advice on shooting star trails, this revised edition will clarify exposure for photographers of all levels.

My Thoughts

This is a much larger book than I anticipated. There is a ton of info and I thought that the author's wording and explanations were very helpful. The writing is actually rather humorous and it makes this book a lot more fun to read than typical how to books. I think this book would be great for a student or for someone who wants to go beyond the pointing and shooting method. 
Highly recommend! 

Five stars.
