New eBook: Exposure for Outdoor Photography

This morning we released Michael Frye’s second book for Craft & Vision: Exposure for Outdoor Photography. Michael, as many of you know, is an accomplished outdoor and landscape photographer, he knows his craft, and he’s an excellent teacher. So when he asked if a book about exposure would be helpful, I didn’t wait a second to reply. The questions I am most asked, on a technical level, are about exposure, and what I love about the way Michael teaches is that he directly relates the technical aspects of exposure, which he teaches well, to the aesthetic/artistic aspects.

Exposure for Outdoor Photography is about all natural-light photography, and could be one of the most broadly-applicable books we’ve published. Michael, in this 50-spread PDF ebook, tackles the basics, and goes on to discuss how the different ways of accomplishing different exposures bring about different aesthetics, metering modes, exposure modes, histograms, high-contrast scenes, depth of field, shutter speeds, and exposure blending, and more, and includes 10 case studies, and beautiful photographs, to illustrate. This is a solid book and  I’m thrilled to have been part of making it, and proud to have Michael a part of the Craft & Vision faculty.
