Understanding Exposure, by Brian Peterson, is just what I needed to get a grip on understanding the many important things about exposure; typically called The Exposure Triangle (apeture, speed, and ISO).
The book is filled with good photographs that give examples of how a picture can change when these settings are changed. That was a good teaching tool.
As a beginner, all this information can be a bit overwhelming, but with a lot of practice (i.e. picture taking), and this tool in my pocket, I'm sure my photography will improve little by little over the years.
There is a good section in the book that explains some special techniques, using polarizing filters and graduated neutral density filters.
There is also a comprehensive section on using different types of flash in your photography.
I'm sure I will refer to this book many times, and am glad to have it among my reference books on photography.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
