Understanding Exposure

Understanding Exposure

Understanding Exposure is an invaluable guide to taking better photographs using today's sophisticated digital SLR and compact digital cameras. Aimed at the novice or more experienced amateur photographer, jargon-free text explains the theory behind digital photography, how light metering affects exposure, and light's relationship to colour, colour temperature and white balance, focal points and the expression of mood.

Aperture, depth of field and shutter speed are thoroughly described, along with chapters on ISO speeds, dynamic range, use of filters, and making in-camera adjustments. Post processing techniques round off this invaluable guide to getting the best results from your photography.
