Photography Exposure, 2nd edition, is a comprehensive guide to the theory of exposure, explaining the fundamental relationship between the photographic image and the effects of light intensity and duration.

It describes the use of lens aperture and depth of field in relation to exposure and outlines the principles of in-camera and hand-held light meters: their strengths, limitations and correct use in a wide variety of lighting situations.

Offering a detailed guide to using exposure for expressive purposes, this is an invaluable reference tool to all students and practitioners of photography.

The second edition includes new images, as well as all new case studies and practical assignments - using examples from a range of international artists. The book has also been updated and restructured to take into account the technical innovations since it first published in 2009.
