What’s the best way to determine exposure? How do you know which settings to use for various lighting scenarios? Why does exposure differ for digital photography versus film photography? In this ebook, photographer Andrew S. Gibson answers these questions and more, showing how to use the histogram to obtain optimum exposure in your images. Going beyond simply focusing on how to achieve the “right” exposure for a given situation, he examines how the question of exposure is as open to creative interpretation as any other aspect of photography. By the end of this guide, you’ll understand how to take a photo that is correctly exposed using the tools provided by your DSLR camera. In this updated edition, he provides in-depth coverage of using Manual mode, including how to use Live View with a filter to make adjustments to composition and focus, and using manual lens attachments to ensure proper metering for correct exposure. In addition, he provides greatly expanded coverage of three key scenarios: the subject brightness matches the dynamic range of the sensor; the subject brightness is less than the dynamic range of the sensor; and the subject brightness is greater than the dynamic range of the sensor. This coverage includes details on how to use diffusers, portable flash, reflectors–and much more.

Mastering Digital Exposure will take the “pro and aspiring pro” remit of the Mastering photography series into the little-understood realm of digital exposure. Of all the disciplines necessary for good photography, exposure remains the most challenging. Digital cameras have added to that challenge by introducing new considerations when dealing with exposure. These are sometimes complex (e.g. the linear nature of digital sensors, the occurrence of digital noise, mastering the digital histogram); often they are generic to photography but their application is different to that for film (e.g. white balance, ISO equivalency, dynamic range). A few will form the basis of the development of the next generation of digital cameras, in particular High Dynamic Range imaging. All of them need explaining and this book will be the first to do it, comprehensively, for the commercial digital user. Mastering Digital Exposure covers all aspects of controlling and managing exposure in-camera for commercially-viable results explored and discussed in language suitable for professionals and aspiring professionals. The book will include case studies form real-world projects and assignments, both studio and field based.

Throughout the course of the book, the reader will gain an understanding of exposure for many different situations, such as taking portraits, action shots, landscapes, and more. Additionally, Jeff covers techniques that many DSLRs now have helpfully built into their hardware, such as panoramas, in-camera HDR, and even time-lapse photography.
