Understanding Exposure – Aperture

Thu March 11, 2010

As some of you know, I am going through Bryan Petersen’s excellent book, Understanding Exposure, on Photoxels on Facebook and adding my comments to each chapter. I learned a lot from that book and heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to learn and improve their photography.
