A follow-up to his extremely popular Understanding Exposure, Bryan Peterson's Exposure Solutions: The Most Common Photography Problems and How to Solve Them is an Amphoto book that tackles 28 nearly universal issues that amateur shooters experience, and provides simple solutions for overcoming them.
Problems covered include exposing high-contrast scenes, freezing motion in low light, photographing a full moon, exposing subjects against a sunset, and balancing subjects in shade with bright backgrounds. Going over each scenario in a way that's easy to follow, Peterson demystifies the process of exposure and shows you different ways of approaching it, so you can really transform your images. He digs deeper than he did in Understanding Exposure, in order to help you break bad habits and take control of your shots, so that you can approach even the really tricky situations with confidence.
