Exposed is a journey that takes you across the western United States in order to explore light, the way it works, and how it changes. It took place over the course of more than four months and in excess of 15,000 miles. It covers 10 states including Washington, Oregon, Utah, and California. It also travels to many places including Mount Saint Helens in Washington State, the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, and to White Sands in New Mexico to show you how to understand light and how it affects your photography in a wide variety of situations.
The goal of Exposed is not to show you the steps to create a great photograph, but rather it is to give you the ability to learn the concepts and techniques of exposure and light so that you can see it and work with it in any situation. The training comes on a DVD or as digital download. The interface is very easy to use and Exposed is fast loading, presented in high definition video, and breaks out into 14 chapters that run 4 hours and 30 minutes in length.
Chapter 1, "Hitting the Road (11:37)," begins with an explanation of what this training is and what it is not – that it is not step-by-step but rather a thorough understanding of light. It will explore how to build your vision of the final output and how to go about to produce that vision.
Chapter 2, "Exposure Foundations (23:12)," describes the core fundamental concepts of how you need to approach working with light. Here you will look at how aperture, shutter speed, and ISO are used to capture light and how changing one affects the others as well as how you can control each of these in differing scenarios. You will also see how to measure the light using different kinds of meters.
Chapter 3, "The Zones (30:55)," examines in detail the use of the Zone System to manage your light. Here you will learn about the zone scale and how it relates to your image and how you can use it to manage your exposure. In this chapter you will see, through several examples how to use the Zone System and the fundamental principles that make it so useful.
