Customer Review

on 17 July 2012
This book is not for outright beginners and assumes you know and understand the basics of exposure. If you don't yet understand how things like f-stop, shutter speed, ISO, metering etc contribute to exposure then you'll find a general photography book much more satisfying. However, for people who want to move on with their understanding of exposure this is an excellent text.
Freeman is a natural teacher and explains some reasonably advanced concepts in an extremely comprehensible way. In the book he explains the science and technology behind modern photography and how this can be exploited to produce more creative results (or sometimes just results that are more faithful to reality). The limitations of certain beginners' "rules of thumb" are explored, and ways to deal with these limitations are discussed. Techniques for creative expsosure, such as low-key, high-key and HDR, are also ably discussed.

All in all, a hugely enlightening and fascinating book, but one that assumes a certain level of knowledge. A must-read for people already comfortable with the basics.
