5.0 out of 5 stars Exposure Insights 24 Sep 2010
This is an excellent book. The content, which is very well organised with a two page introduction on how to get the best out of the book, is highly informative. The diagrams, illustrations and images are some of the best I've seen. David Prakel and Academia are to be congratulated for this book on exposure has few peers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not another Book on Exposure 17 July 2013
By Michael & Lesa Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
That is what I thought when I found this book on the shelf in the Library at the college I teach at. I read it and it impressed me a 40 year photography veteran, and instructor. It is condensed and covers all the aspects of exposure for all the photographic mediums. So I bought the book from Amazon and will keep it as a reference book when I have to teach or write an article etc etc. A good book for the newbie who is an auto shooter in the digital age this would be a good source to learn exposure from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serious book for serious photographers 9 May 2013
By Thomas Horton - Published on Amazon.com
This is a serious book for serious photographers who wish to learn probably more than they wanted to know about exposure.

The book has a text-book format which makes it easy to read and find information. The chapters are well laid out and their order follows a logical progression.

Terms and concepts are well defined and explained. This book includes infomation for both film and digital photography.

If you are brand new to photography, this book may be a bit heaver than other introductory books, but I feel that the information contained in it would be valuable to any one getting serious about their photography.

I think this is one of the better technical books on photography for its completness and logical structure.

I bought it because the class required me to do so. A very in depth book, a must have for any newcomers to photography. It's full of "need to know" basics and further detail.
