If you are like many parents, you always have a Camera on hand. When it comes to your kids, there is not such thing as to many Photographs. As a matter of fact, documenting every second of their lives is a joy for so many, that it is disappointing when a photograph does not turn out right. Rather then having to delete a photograph, check out Understanding Exposure. A book that will safe countless photographs for you and your family.
My History with Photography
For a while, I was really into Photography. I had a photography blog and spend much time taking studio shots. Working in a controlled setting was nice and all, but when it came to the kids, I was lost. The sun scared me as did moving from one room to the next. As soon as I got my metering right, something changed. Since I was unsure of where to start, I let my images get the best of me and sadly, my fear really hurt my photography skills. Needless to say, I was just not sure to get a fast metering. After reading Understanding Exposure, I have a new sence of hope. My photography, both on this blog and in my personal life will take a huge turn for the better.
About Understanding Exposure
The first part of the book that got my attention was how easy exposure really is. Once you read about aperture, shutter speed and F stop, the rest makes sence. Since I started off with the introduction, I not only was able to face my fears, but I moved forward in the right direction.
In my mind, photography is all about painting with light. The key is to get the right light, and you are good to go. Understanding Exposure, not only helps the reader with light issues, and difficulties, but the book takes it slow, is very informative and is filled with amazing photographs to help the reader perfect lighting skills.
If you are both a mother, father, or photographer reading Understanding Exposure, I would suggest you take your time with this book. Read the book sill by skill or page by page if you must. After you read about a new skill or technique, take a few days to practice it. Try breaking a few of the rules and check out your results. The more time and energy you spend on your photographs, the better your results will be.
