I can't say enough good things about John Shaw's books. They have helped my photography in many aspects. With all the photography books on the market, I was overwhelmed by the choices as I wanted to get a book that taught me field techniques yet still explained exposure theory. I emailed a professional photographer, John Herbst, and he recommended any John Shaw book. This was the first one I purchased and I am very happy that I bought it. John Shaw explains exposure theory in a way that makes a complex subject seem easy. I liked it so much that I purchased several of his books and I have enjoyed, and learned from, each of them. His field techniques are straightforward and easy to understand. You'll love any of his books. I have 4 of them.
This book makes you think as you take photos. Makes to want to get out and take pictures
