This review is from: Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera (Paperback)
I just upgraded from my simple point and shoot to a Nikon D90 determined to learn to REALLY use a camera. Despite my best efforts, it didn't take long for me to realize that I needed help. Aperture, ISO, shutter speed...all confusing...how could I possibly choose the right settings? I am so excited about this book that I haven't finished reading it yet and I'm writing my review already. Within the first hour it had me shooting in manual mode not only with confidence, but with perfect exposure! I took a stunning picture yesterday that people are already asking for copies of. The author uses terms that an amateur can understand, and gives you the opportunity to do simple exercises using different camera settings then explaining the outcome. The things that I could not wrap my head around no matter how hard I tried are suddenly clear to me. If you're struggling with understanding your camera and getting correct exposure, buy the book. You won't be disappointed.
