Putting the Puzzle Pieces Together!
Reviewed in the United States on January 8, 2016
I have read a lot of basic photography books and articles, but I think this one is the best! It put all the puzzle pieces together for me. I had a lot of photography information stored and compartmentalized somewhere in my brain. When I read this book, it just all came together and made sense. I am actually going to move from shooting in Aperture Mode to Manual! To illustrate, let me start by saying that all photography teachers/authors refer to the exposure triangle, but David helped me see how to put this to use! First, set the ISO, and then decide if you are going for depth of field (A) or action (S). If you've chosen depth of field (A), for example, then your third step is to set the shutter speed (or vice versa). I love such practical advice! David is a great teacher. He introduces concepts clearly, he gives examples, he gives you assignments, and he reviews! "Demystified" is a very apt word for his title!
