Read full description of the books:A true teacher and entertainer, Bryan Peterson writes as if he were walking students through a fun lecture course on photography. He introduces phrases that he uses again and again so that you, the student, start to fill in the answers before he finishes; he explains tricky technical details through memorable metaphor; he ties theory to his own photography, showing us just where he took his metering, and why. Halfway through the book you feel like a second semester student filling in all the jokes ahead of time and snapping away happily, picking up the extra details you missed before.
It made me giddy, that feeling, and I had to laugh and give the book a kiss in gratitude when I realized what had happened. I'd gotten it. I understood exposure; shutter speed and aperture were no longer mysteries to me. Depth of field, no problem; light metering, a cinch!
Focal length he skipped completely, and he rushed through filters as if the bell were about to ring, but for an explanation and introduction to exposure and stretching my camera skills, I give this book 5 stars.
