    highly recommend!

    I am professional commercial/fine art photographer, and OH how I wish I had this little gem back when I was starting out. It's got a recipe for everything! That makes getting great shots very simple, way before needing to learn the "theory" behind the settings. My favorite part was Alan's explanations of the LOGIC, that is questions to ask yourself...the order of decisions one must consider before taking a picture. It's the kind of thing most shooters learn school-of-hard-knocks method, by years of experience. Here Alan Hess has made the mysterious digital photography world accessible to all. Chock-full of picture examples on almost every page, this guide lists the specific camera settings that created each one. Fantastic! The color checker card was a nice bonus as well. A really unbelievable bargain to get this much at such a reasonable price. It's going to be a great gift to all the friends I mentor in photography. Thanks, Alan!

    The best book on Photography!

    In less than a week this book has helped me in photographing a both a concert and a wedding anniverery party. "Exposure" explains photography in such an insightful manner that I cannot feel that everyone from beginner to pro could benefit from reading this book.
    If you want just one book that helps you be a better photographer than this is the one.
