This is another volume in Wiley’s Photo Workshop series and is the best of the bunch and may be the best book yet written about exposure. Nothing is more critical in capturing the image than getting the exposure right and Jeff Wignall has the photographic and writing chops to show readers how to capture perfectly exposed photographs. In these well-illustrated pages, he shows you how to deal with difficult existing light conditions, challenging weather, and even flash, including a section on using wireless multiple flash units that explains and never confuses. Each chapter ends with an assignment and you can upload your own images to a website to get input from others about how well you succeeded. It doesn’t get more interactive than that!
