Great, but a smaller version of 'Perfect Exposure',
This review is from: The Photographer's Exposure Field Guide: The Essential Guide to Getting the Perfect Exposure; Any Subject, Anywhere (Photographer's Field Guide) (Paperback)
I am about 60 pages into 'Perfect Exposure', and finding it technical, but extremely well written. Because of Michael Freeman's reputation, I had also ordered another three books, one of them a pre-order (the book I'm writing the review about now). That book arrived this morning, and imagine my surprise when I opened it and found it to be a smaller version, albeit with a different title, of 'Perfect Exposure'. Now I have to say, what I expected was something I could take out into the field, and I imagined that it would contain technical data for various scenarios that might save me time. However, strangely enough, although I should probably feel cheated, I am quite happy, as this is certainly an excellent enough book to want to pack into one's camera bag; not that I would want to lug the larger version around. So, on balance, I'm happy, but I did want to warn other punters out there that 'The Photographer's Exposure Field Guide' is exactly the same text as 'Perfect Exposure'. The only difference is that it is a smaller binding, and contains convenient tab referencing. It's actually a beautiful production, in terms of format, binding and obviously content, which is why I'm awarding it maximum marks.
