Understanding Exposure

Understanding Exposure
by Bryan Peterson

I have been slowly learning on my own how to take better pictures with my DLSR camera.  Each time I take pictures, they get better with practice.  However, I was looking for some help without investing in a class or reading a long, technical, confusing book.  When I found Understanding Exposure, I was hopeful it might lead me to be an even better photographer.

From the moment I opened the first page, I knew I had found a valuable book to guide me on my learning to be a better photographer.  This book is packed with information, but presented in a way that is easy to read, engaging, simple to understand, and packed with information good for the novice all the way to the experienced.  Peterson, a long time professional, offers tips, examples and common language to explain how the camera works, why options do what they do, and how to navigate the camera.  From there, he teaches readers how to hone their skills to better control exposure, lighting and frame subjects to get better pictures.

I have enjoyed reading through this book and intend to keep it in my library for years to come as a reference.  One chapter in and I already learned so much!  I plan to read through this book a second time in the near future because I know I can already build on what I have recently learned.  I highly recommend this book for any photography newbie, there is so much to learn!
