Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than 100 vivid, graphic comparison pictures illustrate every point in this revised classic and can help any photographer maximize the creative impact of his or her exposure decisions. Peterson stresses the importance of metering the subject for a starting exposure, and then explains how to use various exposure meters and different kinds of lighting. The book contains lessons on each element of the exposure-aperature, shutter speed, iso-and how it relates to the other two in terms of depth of field, freezing and blurring action, and shooting in low light or at night. A section on special techniques explores such options as deliberate under- and overexposures, how to produce double exposures, bracketing, shooting the moon, and the use of filters. Understanding Exposure demonstrates that there are always creative choices about how to expose a picture-and that the decision is up to the photographer, not the camera.

Review:

"Highly recommended." Washington Times

Book News Annotation:

Peterson is a professional photographer, internationally known instructor, and author, living in the U.S. and France. Drawing on 30-plus years of experience taking pictures, he provides a practical guide covering "the photographic triangle"--the interrelationship between aperture, shutter speed, and film--that is at the heart of every exposure. Suitable for both novice and experienced photographers, the text is illustrated throughout with the author's own work, accompanied by detailed explanations of how he achieved each shot. Changes from the first to the revised edition are not stated.

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

This is a wonderful book. It is easy to understand and you can really apply it to your own photography. Even if photo is just a hobby this is a must read. Good for digital or film. This book is so great I lent it to a freind and they never gave it back!
