The Ecology of Photography Author: Mike Shipman Paperback: 52 pages Publisher: Blue Planet Photography, LLC; 1 edition (January 2020) Language: English Product Dimensions: 8.5 x 0.3 x 11 inches Shipping Weight: 16 oz Signed by Author There is no recipe for setting exposures. While some situations are similar, every one of them is different in one aspect or another. Relying on the programming of your camera, a set of formulas or charts, or a familiar camera setting, limits your ability to use the camera to its fullest. Understanding the foundation of photography, light, and the components that allow you to control the path of light into the dark box of the camera, gives you the flexibility to make whatever type of photographic exposure necessary to create the photograph you see in your mind. Attempts to simplify the process of making exposures with tables and charts and formulas have only made it more complicated and confusing. I've developed a method that simplifies the understanding and application of exposure. I've taught this method for 10 years and have recently created a book describing the Exposure Equation. The Exposure Equation includes a brief history of photography dating back to its roots over two thousand years ago, and an overview of the elements of exposure: light, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and the light meter. Color and black and while illustrations help describe some of the concepts. The book is printed and comb-bound by me as ordered. Allow up to 5 business days for printing and assembly prior to shipping. Typical turnaround is 2-3 days.
