This authoritative work provides a thorough examination of exposure calculations in support of composition, the myth of 18% as midtone, exposure meters, photosensitivity (film speed) of both emulsion (film) and solid-state (digital) media, spatial resolution, dynamic range, the photosensitive exposure range, exposure compensation, the Sunny f/16 Rule, the Zone System, APEX calculations, ISO/ANSI standards documentation and depth of field calculations. In addition to explanations of these terms and their connections, this book offers a very general exposure equation, tables of representative and exact stop values, extensive diagrams for and examples of exposure calculations, very general depth of field equations and extensive depth of field tables that make it useful as a supplementary text in a course on photography or as a field guide.

Michael G. Prais, PhD., has degrees in chemistry from the University of Chicago and the University of California, San Diego, and has extensive experience as a theoretician using mathematics to understand physical phenomena. He has been a tenured university faculty member teaching general, physical, and analytical chemistry. For the last 25 years, Dr. Prais has worked with faculty, students, and staff to understand and use modern information and communication technologies in their academic pursuits. When photographers were just beginning to digitize their images with scanners and cameras and then manipulate these images with Photoshop, Dr. Prais combined a long-time curiosity about photography and visual design with his interest in supporting faculty, students and staff across the university in their use of technologies by learning about analog and digital photographic technologies. In doing so, he has thoroughly analyzed the calculations that go into the exposure process and has connected this process with a composition process. This analysis recognizes the similarities and the differences among solid-state (digital) cameras and emulsion (film) cameras and shows how these features influence exposure in the service of composition.
