Great book for digital and silver photog.

This book is packed with information that will be helpful especially for the new photographer. Whether you use digital or silver, this book explains the problems with both and how to make sure your shots are right on. I bought it for information on hand held light meters as I just purchased a Kenko 1100 for a photography business I hope to start up. I will admit for an experianced shutterbug there are times you will fall asleep reading something you already know. Then you will see something where you have to stop and read it over. I plan to reread the whole book more carefully again. For digital photogs. there is a lot that will interest you because digital is more like slide film from what I understand. (I shoot film.) Because of that, digital will require more accurate measurement of light. There are things that will throw your meter off and this will help you to understand those problems. While digital photogs will say, 'I'll just fix it in Photoshop', that is not the best way and for a pro, spending time doing that can be a business killer. Thus it is better to get it right the first time. The book has a lot of pictures showing the reader what the author means and how it will affect your shots. Also, he does throw in a few tips here and there not really related to exposure that a beginner might find useful. I think no matter what is your level of education in photography, you will find something in this book. Ric.

There is no such thing as a 'perfect' exposure

There is no such thing as a 'perfect' exposure: it's up to photographers to thoroughly understand the process and take advantage of the techniques which lend to better photos, which goes far beyond the usual focus on f-stops and shutter speeds. Chapters discuss the basics but also show how to use light and exposure to improve compositions. Both digital and film photographers will find this a top pick, and public libraries catering to amateurs will find it an especially popular lend.
