Product Description

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A part of an important series 29 Aug 2012
By Andy_atGC TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
The series 'From Snapshots to Great Shots' is intended primarily for those moving to a serious camera from a simple compact. Accordingly, it should be as general as possible when referring to camera controls, settings, and also to labelling of certain features. The author here had also written a book about within the series that relates to one specific model and brand and, unless Peachpit intend to add similar titles for other brands or models, it is a curious decision for it to be included as part of this series. There are many alternative guides available for most dSLR models and, unless that one had been omitted by the relevant publishers, it serves little purpose in the series. Another reviewer has commented that some sections of this book may also appear in that, but not having read that title, I cannot specifically comment.

The main part of the title is 'Exposure' and that should imply with any camera. If the author and publisher wish it to be brand and model specific, it should have been titles as 'Exposure with ...' but as the model has recently been supplanted, and their production life is never long, that may be rather restrictive.

Any author can make mistakes and most do, at least sometimes; that is why publishers employ editors and proofreaders and, for many of this series, translators as most were authored by persons for whom English is not necessarily one of their spoken or written languages. The author's mistake here was to be too model-specific in his writing and that should have been picked up by the editors and a request made to remove or rewrite the offending passages. Had he added the Canon or Sony way of doing things, for example, I would then excuse it on the basis of comparison and partial generalisation.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 10 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Found this book to be so helpful. The way it is set out you can dip in and out when you need to know something from a particular chapter. I have another book by this author which is the book on the Nikon 5000, that has become like a bible to me, I have learnt so much from it. Looking for an easy to understand photography book this is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a let down to be honest! 19 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's all very well going on about exposure, but this book does not really help, as it's not written for a specific camera. E.G. It mentions the pop up flash on the D3100, and shows some of the menu screens also, for that particular camera. What good is this if you don't own one? The pics and illustrations are great, but it's almost a complete repeat of the D3100 snapshots to great shots book. After reading that book, i can honestly say, i've found this one to be a waste of time and money. But don't get me wrong, it's smart and well presented. I was atleast expecting it to be an addition to the knowledge i've already gained. To summarise, i would suggest the purchase of a book, that specifies your camera model in the title!

Not really a good addition if you have Jeff Revells "from snapshots to great shots" general camera guide (which is very good)

Nothing really that new and only small parts extra. Same photos inside etc.
