In a world where technology is ever-evolving, its no surprise that the ‘Auto’ facilities on our cameras are becoming more adept at getting us the images we want. That said, there’s still no replacement for possessing a mastery of what is, arguably, the most important facet of photography – exposure.

While it may on first impressions seem just a matter of getting it ‘right’, a solid understanding of the basics of exposure opens up a world of opportunities and, more important, fewer missed shots.

The Digital Photographer’s Guide… dedicates 144 pages to the subject, and at no point does the title sag. From the basics of aperture and shutter speeds, through to flash exposure, exploring light and digital manipulation, the book covers everything there is to know about exposure. So, if you’re getting tired of being tied to auto or scene modes, or just want to know how to stop the sky looking like a white blob, this title may be the one for you.
