The third title in Ilex's continuing series of Field Guides is best-selling author Michael Freeman's guide to exposure, the deceptively simple concept at the heart of photography. By explaining the mechanics of today's DSLRs, and breaking down the key exposure situations, Freeman demystifies the art of capturing the right exposure first time. The handy format allows easy reference in the field.

Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career. Since then, working for clients that include all the world's major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman's reputation as one of the world's leading reportage photographers has been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture. Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.Review :
"Focal Press is launching a new book series this spring. The Field Guide series is collection of pocket-sized how-to books that can easily slip into a photographer's camera bag. International photog Michael Freeman is the author of the first three books: The Photographer's Eye Field Guide, The DSLR Field Guide and The Exposure Field Guide. The first two are out; the third is coming soon. They will be followed by birding, wedding and landscape Field Guides later this summer and fall. This will increase your ability to get better photos through skill rather than luck."--press release posted on Adorama.com
"I'm reading Michael Freeman's The Exposure Field Guide for a review I will be posting soon. Initially, I was thinking that I could not imagine an entire book, even a relatively small one, on the subject of "exposure," especially since it deals with digital photography. How much could there be to say about the methods of getting good exposure when you can check the screen to see if there are red and blue areas blinking to tell you, generally, if you need to give a little more or less exposure. Well, as it turns out, there is plenty to say and Freeman is saying it well and a book I thought I would be skimming is being read rather carefully. Part of this is that he not only goes into the "how-tos" but also the "why-fors." I will save the rest of my comments on that until the review.g"--BetterinBlackandWhite.com
"The Exposure Field Guide is written all about lighting and getting a good exposure. It covers topics like using a gray card, using a handheld meter, exposing for color, metering modes, and lots of lighting scenarios. It includes lots of beautiful photographs as examples throughout the book. It is technical to be sure. However, I learned several new things while reading this book. This would be a good read for someone who is feeling comfortable with their camera, but wants some in-depth information about exposure."--MomandCamera.com
"Would make fantastic Christmas gifts for the photographer in your life"--review in Kimberlygauthier.com
