Exposed – the essentials of capturing the light just right
In its purest form, photography is the act of capturing light reflected from a scene or object onto a light-sensitive sensor. Exposure is controlling that light. Alan Hess shows you dozens of ways to do it, with shutter speed, aperture, metering modes, ISO, your camera's exposure modes, flash, and an essential awareness of the light. And because this guide applies those techniques to actual shooting situations, you'll want to take it with you on every shoot.
