This is the first book I have read that thoroughly explains and provides examples of getting correct exposures in the digital format. The author has made some very technical terms and processes very easy to understand. I especially liked the discussions, in separate chapters, the use of shutter speeds and aperture openings.

Altogether, a very complete picture of exposure considerations with advice I had not seen elsewhere.
