Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Focal Press is launching a new book series this spring. The Field Guide series is collection of pocket-sized how-to books that can easily slip into a photographer's camera bag. International photog Michael Freeman is the author of the first three books: The Photographer's Eye Field Guide, The DSLR Field Guide and The Exposure Field Guide. The first two are out; the third is coming soon. They will be followed by birding, wedding and landscape Field Guides later this summer and fall. This will increase your ability to get better photos through skill rather than luck."—press release posted on Adorama.com

"I'm reading Michael Freeman's The Exposure Field Guide for a review I will be posting soon. Initially, I was thinking that I could not imagine an entire book, even a relatively small one, on the subject of "exposure," especially since it deals with digital photography. How much could there be to say about the methods of getting good exposure when you can check the screen to see if there are red and blue areas blinking to tell you, generally, if you need to give a little more or less exposure. Well, as it turns out, there is plenty to say and Freeman is saying it well and a book I thought I would be skimming is being read rather carefully. Part of this is that he not only goes into the "how-tos" but also the "why-fors." I will save the rest of my comments on that until the review.g"—BetterinBlackandWhite.com

"The Exposure Field Guide is written all about lighting and getting a good exposure. It covers topics like using a gray card, using a handheld meter, exposing for color, metering modes, and lots of lighting scenarios. It includes lots of beautiful photographs as examples throughout the book. It is technical to be sure. However, I learned several new things while reading this book. This would be a good read for someone who is feeling comfortable with their camera, but wants some in-depth information about exposure."—MomandCamera.com
