I recently took a trip to Niagara Falls and after reading much of the book noticed that my night photos were greatly improved versus other night photos I've taken in the past using the night photo setting on the camera. By gaining a better understanding of the delicate balance between aperture and shutter settings explained in this book, along with use of a tripod and remote, I now have some beautiful shots to add to my personal portfolio that a pre-programmed setting would never allow me to achieve.
I studied film, slr's, web sites, photography forums and the most "popular" authors, and came to the conclusion that I must be too dense to ever be more than a point and shoot snapshot guy. Then as a last resort, I noticed a review of this book that seemed to indicate that this might help.
A few days later, and 4 chapters in, I could duplicate/imitate any shot in this book with a Panasonic FZ28 with no problem. Suddenly, everything made sense. Now I know what "they" are talking about. It may well be that Wignall's approach is much better suited to the point and shoot, and easier to relate to, but it has to apply better to a dslr also. Simple, straightforward, no trips to foreign lands and exotic locations. Just go into your backyard or down the dirt road, frame the subject, adjust exposure, set white balance and shoot. Like learning to ride a bicycle for the first time. Pedal, balance and steer. He'll give you a push, you can do it.
It's hard to explain or believe the difference this book has made in my photos and my understanding of how to take them, but without a doubt, Jeff Wignall and the Exposure Photo Workshop are responsible. If you "want" to learn, you "will". I finally did.
The book is easy to read with lots of photos that are well explained in the text. The author, Jeff Wignall, has written the book, not only for the beginner, but for more experienced photographers as well. He managed to make what is often a dry subject come alive with his good sense of humor and clever way of writing.
If you are struggling with learning how to capture a scene in vibrant colors with the least amount of post editing, this is the book for you. Regardless of the type of camera you have, whether a dslr or a small point-and-shoot camera, Jeff Wignall explains the methods of how to manipulate or fool the sensor. I learned how to take photos that looked on paper the way I actually saw the scene in person. I also learned how to get creative with my slr and purposely take photos that in past photos were taken by accident.
I recommend this book to anyone looking to advance in their photography.
