The Amphoto book, Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera takes you through the daunting world of exposure. Author, and professional photographer, Bryan Peterson, teaches you how to shoot success photos by understanding how to set your camera's exposure. Topics covered in the book include aperture, and choosing which one is best for your situation, how to use shutter speed to your advantage, and when and where to take a meter reading. This edition is also updated with information on white balance, flash, HDR, and then some.

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

                This book appears on many lists for beginner photographers and it doesn't dissapoint. Covering topics from the basic triangle (Aperature, shutter speed, and ISO) to light and filters. All of the advice he gives also comes with pictures showing the differences between different techniques. I have read the book fully once and plan to read it a couple more times.

                                This has been a great addition to my growing collection of photography books. The information is presented very well, and the simple approach makes everything easier to remember later. I find that I am experimenting more, and my comfort level with full manual mode is growing rapidly. I would recommend this book to anyone.

                                    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.
