Exposure is a fundamental part of photographic technique, but is often thought of as mysterious or difficult to understand. In this revised edition of Ross Hoddinott's successful book 'Digital Exposure Handbook' the nitty gritty of this fascinating subject is unravelled and presented in a clear and easy-to-understand way. This practical, handbook size, jargon-free guide will be your essential companion out in the field, so slot it in your backpack and start taking some stunning shots.
Although the process of making a successful exposure is based on science, a photographer's individual interpretation means that creativity becomes part of the equation. Digital cameras have brought a new dimension to exposure control, offering photographers the ability to review images in the field, as well as being able to change the sensitivity of the sensor from shot to shot. This comprehensive book will give you the confidence to put theory into practice and enable you to achieve creative control over your images.
