Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs with a Film or Digital Camera
by Bryan Peterson
This is a must have book for the beginning photographer, and the one I recommend every beginner own. It even comes in handy for those of us who have been at it for awhile. Bryan takes the language of photography and makes it easy to understand. And the book has been updated for digital photography, but also covers the necessary information for those who want to shoot film. As you read this book, you'll begin to have those 'now I understand' moments and begin to see how the pros come up with the pictures they take. Have no doubts, this book covers the fundamentals of photography like no other. If this book is not sitting on your shelf, it should be, particularly if you ever hope to master the medium of photography.
