Easy answers for your most common exposure questions
Bryan Peterson’s Understanding Exposure has demystified the elements of exposure for nearly half a million readers, making it one of the most popular photography books in the world. Now, Bryan returns with his first-ever follow-up, Bryan Peterson’s Exposure Solutions, this time tackling 28 of the most common exposure stumbling blocks for amateur shooters.
These are the exposure situations that prove frustrating time and time again, from exposing high-contrast scenes to freezing action in low light, photographing a full moon, exposing subjects against a sunset sky, balancing subjects in shade with brightly lit backgrounds, and so on. For each, Bryan points out common pitfalls and then offers a simple solution, showing you how to approach the exposure differently and transform your shot.
A complement to Understanding Exposure, Bryan Peterson’s Exposure Solutions digs deeper to help you break bad habits, take control of your exposure, and approach even tricky situations with confidence.
