Exposure: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Google eBook)
Now that you've bought an amazing new DSLR, you need a book that goes beyond the camera manual to teach you how to take great shots, and that begins with understanding the fundamental principles of great photography.
With Exposure: From Snapshots to Great Shots, popular photographer Jeff Revell starts with the basics of light, including how it works, and how to see it. In order to leverage this new understanding of light in your photography, Jeff walks the reader through one of the most important photographic principles--the exposure triangle: ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture. Learning to apply these three elements together is the gateway to both technical and creative control of your photography.
The book covers all key camera features that affect exposure (regardless of what type of DSLR you have) including aperture priority mode, shutter priority mode, and exposure compensation. Throughout the course of the book, the reader will gain an understanding of exposure for many different situations, such as taking portraits, action shots, landscapes, and more. Beautifully illustrated with large, vibrant photos, this book teaches you how to take control of your photography to get the image you want every time you pick up the camera.
