Understanding Exposure 3rd Edition Photographs

Awhile back, while reading all the positive reviews of earlier versions of this book, I saw that a new version was soon to be released, and I decided to wait for it. The book was received from Amazon yesterday on the release date!

After quickly leafing through and looking at all the great photos, I decided to start reading. A short while into the book, it occurred to me that "this is one of my favorite books"! And I was only on page 16!

I became something of a photo hobbyist many years ago with a film slr and got back into it a few months ago by buying a decent digital slr. A glance at the table of contents shows that the book covers the basics of exposure: aperture, shutter speed, iso, white balance, lighting, filters. So I'm reviewing the basics, but I think Mr. Peterson's insights would also be valuable to more advanced photographers.

I enjoy looking at the photos and trying to guess what the camera settings were. Mr. Peterson chose some gorgeous photos--by themselves they would be more than worth the price of the book--as examples of exposure principles.

I'm now on page 20, reading some great insights on ISO. Understanding Exposure, 3rd edition is a six-star book! If, when I finish reading it, I decide to subtract stars, I'll let you know. But I'd be very surprised! I'm looking forward to the read and to improving my creative skills.

  1. Im getting into photography and was wondering what book would be good to read? Im interested in understanding ISO, f-stop, white balance, different shooting techniques, etc. I know a little about each but its just guess and shoot at this point. I know its important to just try stuff but I want a book.

  2. I was wondering what books would be good to get to help me understand my photography (ISO, Exposure, Lighting...etc) better, and hopefully help me to improve the photos I take. I'm a beginner but I can understand things fairly well so I don't need anything SUPER basic. Suggestions please! I'll try anything to help myself improve :) Thank You
