Synopses & Reviews
The long-awaited Bryan Peterson field guide is here: thick (though formatted to fit into a camera bag), comprehensive, and filled with the techniques, before-and-after images, and multiple-view photographs he's famous for. Distilled from his popular previous titles (and the forthcoming Understanding Close-Up Photography), this one book covers it all: exposure, shutter speed, composition and color, portraiture, the digital darkroom, printing, aperture, and much more. The book also spans a broad spectrum of genres from nature and travel to portrait, macro and panorama, fine art and stock photography. This is the all-in-one place for beginning and serious amateur photographers to look for clear and reliable information about any photographic situation or intention-including the latest tips for improving your work later in Photoshop.
In his signature style-conversational, irreverent, and funny rather than technical--Bryan Peterson helps readers achieve the wow shots that are their ultimate goal.
