About The BetterPhoto Guide to Exposure

Exposure is often what separates good photography from truly stunning photography. It's essential to producing high-quality images, but mastering exposure can be very difficult.

No matter how engaging the subject matter, it's often exposure that makes the picture remarkable, powerful, poignant and memorable.

The BetterPhoto Guide to Exposure, helps take photos to the next level, by demystifying exposure using the series' signature assignment, diagrams, tips, and illustrations.

The BetterPhoto Guide to Exposure is like a full-scale photography course between the covers of a book-all taught by Sean Arbabi, a seasoned instructor whose photographs have been featured in 250 publications and by 150 companies, including National Geographic and Microsoft.

The BetterPhoto Guide to Exposure offers the same instruction style as, as it reveals a plethora of information on both digital and film photography, how different file formats affect exposure, how to adjust files, color correction, combining digital exposures, and much more.

And of course, the author's 200 stunning full-color photographs make this hardworking guide as inspiring as it is instructive.
