Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review


Understanding Exposure, Fourth Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera by Bryan Peterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OK so my very first thought was this book was not at all what I thought it was…I guess I wanted a more cut and dry this is how it works book….but once I actually sat down and started reading it I realized that it was better than that kind of book. This book not only helped you see how things worked but he also shared some of his experience and such.
Some of the points I’m still not sure I understand…I’m using my phones camera in manual, so even though its a good camera I cant adjust the aperture. I’]m excited to see what els I can learn and I think this will be a book I go back to a few times and share with others.
