Product Description

From the Back Cover

Now that you've bought an amazing new DSLR, you need a book that goes beyond the camera manual to teach you how to take great shots, and that begins with understanding the fundamental principles of great photography.

WithExposure: From Snapshots to Great Shots,popular photographer Jeff Revell starts with the basics of light, including how it works, and how to see it. In order to leverage this new understanding of light in your photography, Jeff walks the reader through one of the most important photographic principles--the exposure triangle: ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture. Learning to apply these three elements together is the gateway to both technical and creative control of your photography.

The book covers all key camera features that affect exposure (regardless of what type of DSLR you have) including aperture priority mode, shutter priority mode, and exposure compensation. Throughout the course of the book, the reader will gain an understanding of exposure for many different situations, such as taking portraits, action shots, landscapes, and more. Beautifully illustrated with large, vibrant photos, this book teaches you how to take control of your photography to get the image you want every time you pick up the camera.

Format: Paperback
Hi, i bought Nikon D3100: From Snapshots to Great Shots which i really enjoyed and learned from, but i wanted something that covers exposure and "how to improve your shots" kind of book, I've been somewhat disappointed that the book repeat most of what's been said in the first one i bought. it's a good stand alone book, nut if you already own a "how to" book from the same author, you might be better looking for something else, I've bought Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera and it's covering a lot more about metering and composition.

anyway, my 2 cents.

HASH(0xa2f4a774) out of 5 stars Underrated April 10 2011
By S. Radhakrishnan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jeff Revell is probably one of the most underrated authors in his field. My guess is because he tends to write books for specific camera models and people mistake his books for user-manual-replacements. I bought his D5000 book along with my first DSLR. It was the best money I spent on Photography. Not because it taught me how to use my camera, which it did, but because it taught me so much more about photography as I was starting out. Since then I have moved on to more advanced and inspirational books, but I still go back to this book from time to time. For starting out or getting over the initial learning curve, Jeff Revell's series of books is one of the best.

His latest addition on Exposure stays true to its predecessors. There is some repeated material from the camera series. But it is a welcome refresher and goes in-depth into a topic any photographer should revisit. As the title suggests, this isn't a book for advanced photographer. But for beginners and enthusiasts this book, along with Bryan Peterson's Understanding Exposure, is all you need to tackle all but the most challenging lighting situations.

HASH(0xa2f4a7c8) out of 5 stars OK, but contains information from other books by same publisher May 3 2011
By Flyin' Hawaiian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book along with the Nikon D7000 book from the same publisher. The information in this book is for the beginner photographers and is of average content adequate for that level. More advanced shooters (beginners too)will probably find Bryan Peterson's book Understanding Exposure more suitable. What I found disappointing was that there were numerous paragraphs in this book that were word-for-word from the Nikon D7000 book. Understandably, there are only so many ways to explain a subject, however the content is copied in its entirety. In college they called this plagiarism and the result would be expulsion. Each book was written by different authors, but both are from Peachpit Press. In either book, no credit is given to the other author.

HASH(0xa2f4aaa4) out of 5 stars A great guide for Photography basics Oct. 30 2012
By R. DiTommaso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of several "From Snapshots to Great Shots" books that I recommend. I enjoy the skillful mix of images and text that work well to support each other. This book not only covers the basics of exposure very well, but it goes on to elaborate on how to handle numerous challenging situations with exposure adjustments. Each chapter concludes with an assignment page. I have used this book as the basis for several workshops and found the assignments in each chapter work well to reinforce the material described in that chapter. If you want to learn how to control exposure this book is a great tool to set you down the path to being able to harness the true power of your DSLR.

HASH(0xa2f4a99c) out of 5 stars Great book for beginner and amateur photographers Nov. 2 2012
By nathanruei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I started using my Sony a55 last December. It took me until reading this great book to really clarify the ideas behind "exposure", and what I need to prioritize when manipulating exposure modes. If I had read this book right in the beginning, I'm sure my learning curve would have shorten quite a bit.
The author noted ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed in each of the pictures and suggested when to do what. Also, it's written in an user-friendly language. Good work!
