“The ten volumes of the Focal Manuals of Photo Technique have long become firmly established standard texts and sources of reference in the English-speaking world and beyond.
The first three were published in the early 1940s, the others after the war in the 1950s. Extensively revised and in some cases entirely re-written editions of most titles were produced in the 1960s. Almost exactly twenty years after its first publication, W. F. Berg’s Exposure concludes this process of bringing the series thoroughly up to date.
It is a key volume to the series in more than one sense. The impact of light on the sensitized material is the basic and decisive point of action conditioning the whole photographic process. An understanding of the theory as well as the practice of this function is essential to all who use photography as a purposeful tool, rather than a casual occupation.
Scientific research and technological developments during the last twenty years did contribute a great deal towards making this casual use of the camera not only ubiquitous but also incomparably more easy and rewarding than it used to be. However, as in so many other fields of contemporary life, the increasing accessibility of satisfactory products conveniently masks a corresponding degree of change and sophistication in knowledge and thinking on which the new, apparently so automated products rest.
This change and sophistication is fittingly reflected by the extensive revisions applied by the author to his original text. In the words of the Preface to the first edition it “is more than a simply guide to correct exposure. As it proceeds from chapter to chapter, examining all the factors that influence exposure, it (more than ever) inquires at every new step into the theoretical reasons for whatever practical advice is given”.
A major addition is an entirely new chapter on Latent-Image Formation- the core of all photographic theory- based on a simple model which is both easier to follow and less speculative than most and which deals extensively with the many effects of Reciprocity Failure.
The similarly fundamental chapter on Photographic Image Structure has received major additions which deal with the new concepts of Transfer Function, Acuntance, Contrast Index etc.
The cumulative result of these major and a great many minor additions and revisions is to fuse in this work what matters most, both in theory and practice of photographic technique. It will very adequately serve as a unique compendium
of essential information to all those who prefer a single volume to a whole shelf of books.” – A. Kraszna-Krausz (foreword)
