    Worth every penny

    LOVE this book -- for the first time, I don't feel like I'm being talked down to, or that the writer assumes I am already a professional photographer. What I learned about exposure in the first 30 minutes of reading this book is more than I ever understood before in over 30 years of avid photography. The photograph illustrations and examples are very helpful, and numerous. This book is something any serious amateur photographer should have in his or her permanent library, and it would probably be good for the experts out there, too. It gave me great confidence and understanding, and has inspired me to get out and try some of the different techniques, which are really not "techniques" at all -- just understanding CORRECT exposure. Which, as he says, is what photography is about. Highly recommend.

    Very good for beginners

    The book takes time to explain photographic concepts such as exposure, aperture and shutter speed from the point of view of the absolute beginner, taking no amount of prior knowledge for granted. The painstakingly detailed explanations are a huge plus, but the many metaphors (bees, buckets and what-not) become superfluous after a time. Less repetition would be to the book's advantage. Otherwise a very well written, clear guide for beginners and re-starters. I enjoyed the little exercises suggested here and there, would've loved to see more of those. Another big plus: there are many absolutely gorgeous and inspiring images in the book that I enjoy going back and looking at every now and then.
