Synopsis
With more than 350,000 copies sold, Understanding Exposure has demystified the complex concepts of exposure for countless photographers. Now updated with current technologies, more than one hundred new images, and an all-new chapter, this new edition will inspire you more than ever to free yourself from "auto" and create the pictures you truly want. In his trademark easy-to-understand style, author Bryan Peterson explains the relationship between aperture and shutter speed, including how to achieve successful exposures in seemingly difficult situations. You'll learn:

  • Which aperture gives you the greatest contrast and sharpness, and when to use it
  • Which aperture guarantee the background remains an out-of-focus tone
  • Which one aperture - when combined with the right lens - creates an area of sharpness from three feet to infinity
  • How to creatively use shutter speed to either freeze an action or imply motion
  • Where to take a meter reading when shooting a sunset, snow, or a city at dusk

With updated information on white balance, flash, HDR, and more, this classic will inspire you to stop guessing and take control of your settings for better photos anytime, anywhere, and with any camera

            I love all of Bryan Petersons Books. Understanding exposure is great because nothing is single out towards one brand or one type of camera. Most writers like to speak in general terms of one brand but he offers all the help on any camera. Letting you understand what exposure and shutter speeds really are.
