We do not teach photography; we show you how to 'burn' the knowledge and skills you need deep into the 'firmware' of your brain. Meet your authors: Professor Bob Ryan ARPS FRSA: a specialist in analysis and the development of expert judgement. This book builds upon decades of his work in the development of deep-learning and the activation of non-conscious skills. Here is a small sample of what has been said about Bob as a photographer, image analyst and educator: 'A highly accomplished, wildlife photographer' (Chris Weston - amongst the top 50 most influential photographers); 'in the top ten percent of image analysts' (Jon Fishback - PSA Director of Education Services at the Photographic Society of America); and as an educator: 'student evaluations consistently rank Bob amongst the top three academics on Manchester's Global MBA' (Professor Elaine Ferneley, Global & MBA Director, Alliance Manchester Business School). Andy Beel FRPS: a photographic alchemist who can turn the most ordinary and uninspiring of subjects into photographic gold. His specialism, developed over 30 years of intense effort, is in black-and-white photography. Realizing how Bob's deep-learning methods could radically foreshorten his own struggle for mastery, he now uses them to inspire his own work and to teach others. Here is a small sample of what his clients, workshop participants and talk audiences say about Andy's work as a photographer and teacher: 'truly stunning' (Simon Galloway, Group Picture Editor, Bristol News & Media (Bristol Evening Post)); 'as always you are an inspiration' (David Bathard FRPS AWPF, Frome-Selwood Photographic Society); 'superb tuition, I learned an awful lot from you' (Jay Charnock FRPS).

Mastering Exposure

Genre: Photography

In photography, every decision, creative and technical, rides on achieving a good exposure. When shooting portraits or products, landscapes or architecture, we must control our camera’s settings to ensure that just the right amount of light is allowed into the camera. When we strike the right balance in our exposure, we have a full range of tones, from pure white to deep blacks. We have rich visual detail. We have a sense of dimension. The colors and tones and contrast in our images weave the visual story of our subject and scene in a way that visually computes. As a result, we see just the image we strove to create, rendered perfectly in a way that satisfies our creative vision. In this book, Mark Chen shows you how to take full control over the science of exposure, providing you with the foundational skill-set you need to maximize your artistic vision.
