Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson


Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs with a Film or Digital Camera (Updated Edition) by Bryan Peterson
For serious amateur photographers who already shoot perfectly focused, accurately exposed images but want to be more creative with a camera, here's the book to consult. More than seventy techniques, both popular and less-familiar approaches, are covered in detail, including advanced exposure, bounced flash and candlelight, infrare, d, multiple images, soft-focus effects, unusual vantage points, zooming, and other carefully chosen ways to enhance photographs. The A-Z format make sit easy for readers to find a specific technique, and each one is explained in jargon-free language. Top Tips for each technique help readers achieve superb results, even on the first attempt.

I think this is a must have book for anyone interested in photography.  I can now understanding how sensor sensitivity (film speed), aperture, and shutter speed work together.  Peterson provides a lot of picture examples of the techniques and gives specific camera settings for each.  I will definitely read this once again… and practice some of the tips listed.
