Choosing the exposure for a photograph is both alarmingly simple and infinitely complex; in fact, it’s one of photography’s most absorbing paradoxes.
Exposure is at the very heart of photography. It has always been a subject of fascination to aspiring amateurs and professional photographers alike. Developments in digital technology have transformed the ways in which exposures can be manipulated, and this in turn has forced photographers to think about what they can achieve by understanding the variables of aperture, ISO, and time.
In this book Michael Freeman takes you through this difficult and fast-moving area using unique workflow illustrations, histograms, and clear, visual examples to explore the subtleties of the subject and enable you to shoot with confidence.
Divided into six sections – Fast-track & Foolproof, Technical, The Twelve, Style, Post-processing, and Reference – the book will provide you with the necessary instruction to get perfect exposure anywhere and with any subject matter.
