How to capture and control light to make the best digital photographs.
Light is the essence of photography. Follow master photographer Rick Sammon at dawn in Kenya or nighttime in Miami as he demonstrates how to achieve the best composition with the available light, which camera settings are best suited to existing conditions, and how to obtain the best exposures in challenging situations. Sammon shows how to make photographs instead of just taking them, providing the tools necessary to take artistic command of the images you create. Drawing on intuitive analogies and technical tips, his in-depth lessons on light apply to every style and subject of photography.
In this beginner-to-intermediate-level guide, Sammon also teaches how to 'rescue' potentially imperfect exposures with the resources available to the digital SLR camera owner. Technical exposure information accompanies the book's images where relevant.
