Understanding Exposure Released by Amphoto Books

New title hits on aperture, shutter speed, and light




Amphoto Books has released a revised edition of Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs with a Film or Digital Camera, by Bryan Peterson.

The goal of professional photographer Peterson in this title's 160 pages is to help the camera user get better results than by simply setting the camera on automatic mode and shooting away. To do so, he segments the book into three major sections that reflect the three of the basic factors involved in a correct exposure: aperture, shutter speed, and light. He then breaks down each major section into sub-sections, showing specific image examples alongside his text, as well as providing exercises the reader can undertake to better his understanding of a single topic (“Understanding the Effect of ISO on Exposure,” for instance).

Peterson, who is a columnist for Popular Photography magazine, also provides a chapter on special techniques and filters (deliberate under- or overexposures, bracketing, etc.), as well as one that breaks down some differences between shooting digital versus shooting with film. Price: $24.95, paperback. (Amphoto Books,
