I particularly like the way in which the book is laid out. A great deal of thought went into a design which allows readers to build on what has been covered so far as they progress through the work. Beginning with; Defining Exposure, the author devotes considerable time to each of the main headings which also include; Aperture, Shutter Speed, Light and penultimately; Special Techniques and Filters. Finally, there is a discussion on Film vs. Digital which might be useful for those photographers who are still not convinced by the new technology.
Speaking as a self-taught photographer whose own pictures have been widely published for over 30 years, this book has explained much that I did not previously understand as well as, perhaps, I should have.
Approx. A4 size, with one of the nicest dedications I have ever come across, there are 160 pages containing 150 colour illustrations which cover just about every spectrum of the subject. These include sport, natural history, portraits, people at work, landscapes, close up, mood shots - and a great deal more. As I said, something for just about everyone.
This book is a must have for a learning tool as well as a reference book.
I was "overwhelmed" with my new DSLR, this explains the thought process
one uses when thinking of the image you want to take, the results of
choosing aperture settings over shutter, the exposure triangle, rules of
photography that help you take a more "creative" exposure as opposed to
your regular everyday exposure and much more. Thanks for all your tips and techniques,
I will not be any competition but I am now "overwhelmed" by all the
knowledge you instilled in me with this great book. I also love
your book "Understanding Photography Field Guide", they are my
go to books for all things photo!
I can safely say that this has to be the bible for all people who are into photography regardless of your level of understanding.
