Ebooks are great, although I have to admit I´ve never really got in to the whole ebook thing, but here I am sitting on train flicking through a copy of the latest release from Andrew S Gibson, photographer and technical editor of the outstanding EOS Magazine. I think the reason I´ve not been downloading these digital books is because I travel so much it´s never easy to find the time, or the motivation to sit down and read, and when I final do I prefer to have a real paper book in my hand and use it as a means to escape these digital screens, however I´m starting to realise that perhaps I´ve been missing out.
This book is aimed squarely at Canon EOS users, I should be made clear from the beginning, although most of what the book talks about can easily be transferred to any DSLR camera. Andrew´s book explains not only why your camera, with all its fancy tools, still gets things wrong on many occasions, it continues to explain how to compensate through examples and simple instructions. The book clearly explains how to get your camera working for you.
“Exposure is a fundamental photography skill and essential to creating high quality image. If you get
the exposure wrong even a Photoshop expert soon bumps up against the limits of what can be fixed in
post processing… This book will help you get to grips with exposure on digital cameras”
The book carefully explains each of the fundamental elements before pulling it all together at the end. It´s packed with almost 80 pages of useful information, with great examples and simple diagrams to help you get your head around the underlying principals of exposure. All in all its a damn good book. To purchase the book simply follow this link
