  1. Hello Bob,

    First of all Happy New Year 🙂
    I acquired your book on the 04/11/2014. Since then if I understand correctly you have updated the book and I should have received some email regarding the new download (?) I haven’t received any email … is that normal ?
    Thank you in advance
    Maciej

    Maciej,

    Did you purchased the PDF or paperback version?

    If you purchased the paperback, then Email/Forward your invoice for the purchase. I will reply and attach the updated PDF “Edition 2.0” to the email.
    If you purchased the PDF version, a bulk email will be sent in the next few days with “Edition 2.0” attached.

    Here is the page for instructions on how to get the updated “Edition 2.0” version:

  2. Hello Bob,
    Purchased your excellent book (no cover problems) from Amazon and would like to receive the free pdf version, so I can have it on my iPad for consultation anywhere.
    I did not see a free downloadable version on your site. Can you arrange. Thanks in advance.

  3. Greetings, Bob. Yesterday evening (11/20/2014), I purchased your e-book “The Optimum Digital Exposure [PDF] – $9.99” and paid via credit card. The PayPal receipt number is available if you need it.

    I expected to receive an e-mail message containing download information, but I have not. Please advise. Thanks!

    Regards,

    Michael Miller

    P.S. I follow LuLa and have been aware of ETTR for years. Recently, I sold my entire Canon EOS system in favor of Micro Four Thirds (Panasonic GH4 and a few good lenses). I’ve been experimenting with GH4 spot metering coupled with exposure compensation (+2/3 to 5.0 EV). My results have been inconsistent, and I’m hoping to learn from your book exactly how to set proper EC when using the spot meter. Of course, the problem may simply be that GH4 spot metering is inaccurate. I’d bet on pilot error, however!

    If I understand your LuLa article correctly, in essence your OneZone method is:

    1. Spot-meter what I want to be the brightest *textured* feature of the image…

    2. …which metering would interpret as 18% gray…

    3. …which exposure compensation would then adjust to maximum brightness without clipping…

    4. …which I would then re-render in ACR per my own sensibilities…

    5. …knowing that this process will have optimized shadows tones for lowest possible noise at capture ISO.

    Do I have that right?

    It would seem that EC to get from 18% gray to maximum brightness without clipping should be a fairly standard EV interval…

    Thank you, I am pleased that you have grasped the understanding from the article. What you are describing is the OneZone Method#1 Using the Spot Meter. (Using the in-camera’s spot meter needs a little more consideration than a hand-held 1° spot meter… Please read that section)

    “It would seem that EC to get from 18% gray to maximum brightness without clipping should be a fairly standard EV interval…”
    Yes, I am calling this maximum brightness the the Optimum White Point (OWP) and that “clearly standard EV interval” the “OWP Exposure Bias”. You can determine this EC/Exposure Biasbias in Section A of the Procedural Methods Chapter II.

    I look forward to hearing how you make out with your results.
    Bob

    PS I own a couple of Lumix GH3s which have produced many razor sharp 20×30″ prints. (no snickering from doubters out there.)

  4. Hello Bob,

    I purchased the pdf version of your book last night while unable to sleep. I hasten to add that this was not in the hope that I had found something that would help me nod off.

    Description Unit price Qty Amount
    The Optimum Digital Exposure – PDF Book – The Optimum Digital Exposure [PDF]
    $9.99 USD 1 $9.99 USD
    Subtotal $9.99 USD
    Total $9.99 USD
    Payment $9.99 USD
    Payment sent to support@bobdinatale.com
    Invoice ID: 72317d3cc8ff2d87909c054aff606cf8

    Anyway, when attempting to download it, I got an error page. I then pressed the back button and pressed download again, only to be told this time that I had used up the maximum number of downloads when I had, as yet, downloaded nothing. Please advise on how I should proceed.

    With thanks,

    D Browne

    PS I tried sending this to support@bobdinatale.com, but it bounced as undeliverable.

  5. Hi Bob!

    I just bought the book through Amazon. Looking forward to reading the entire text.
    Thanks for doing all the leg work and research to come up with this.
    I tend to underexpose .3-2.0 stops to keep “the blinkies” away. That’s all about to change!

    You indicated that purchasers of the book were also entitled to the PDF version.
    How do I register for that?

    PS love the picture zoom tool on the website! Nice find.

    Dale,

    This will all be done through the OneZone website… The exact logistics of this is still a puzzle for me.

    I’ll need to figure out who has purchased the paperback… because of “Buyers Protection”, I can not be told who purchased the book either through Amazon or CreateSpace.

    I’ll need to figure out how to automate this process to make this feasible. Being a photographer and not a programmer is certainly posing some challenges – but, I’m getting smarter all the time! 🙂

    Thanks for your support, Bob

    PS love the picture zoom tool on the website! Nice find.
    Yes, nice find. I knew I needed a device to overcome the limitations of the printed page to show the qualities of the photos. It’s a free WordPress plugin… see, I told you I’m getting smarter all the time 😉

  6. Hello Bob,

    I would like to buy your “OneZone” book in PDF version but I have one question. I have an old (maybe ancient now) DSLR (Canon EOS 350D) and Lightroom 3 installed on my notebook. Is this equipment is sufficient to use at least 50% of the advice given in your book?

    Sorry for any mistakes, thanks for reply

    Absolutely! That is the beauty of the methodology. It evaluates the camera you shoot it with! I would somebody with a discontinued Foveon sensor

    You want to talk odd or ancient) I have somebody who use the system with a discontinued Sigma Foveon sensor!

    I’m pretty sure all of the information in the book will be relevant and useful.

    Thanks for your inquiry, Bob

  7. Bob,

    Thank you.

    Front cover looks fine. Back cover content is perhaps a bit off center — to the left and down — but nothing ‘clipped’ on my copy. Nothing serious at all. I got mine through an Amazon order.

    Ed,

    Thanks for the update. I was told yesterday that they found the issue and reset the cover so the book went live again about 1″30 PM (EST) yesterday (Nov.14th).

    There have been sales after that so we’ll see.

    Thanks again, Bob

  8. Bob,

    Just received the paperback version of your book — I guess cover issues did not delay it…

    Anyway, I notice there are numerous links in the book. I seem to remember that on an earlier version of your website you had a solution for following the links (.pdf, version, perhaps?) for folks with the paperback version. Is there still such a solution?

    Thanks,

    Ed

    You remembered correctly…

    Purchasers of the paperback version of this book are eligible for a free download of the eBook in PDF form containing dynamic links, notation and search capabilities. (need Adobe PDF Reader 10.0 or higher)

    I will attach the PDF to you in a separate email.
    Obviously I need to find a way to automate this process our own leather take another picture 🙂
    I need to figure out some logistics of how to do this… not sure if I should do this in bulk or on request?

    A quick question, was the front and back cover of your book clipped?
    CreateSpace/Amazon was reviewing the issue yesterday… A 24 hour review –UGH!

    Thanks, Bob

    Is the USD9.90 “PDF” version is available right now?

  10. Mister Di Natale,

    You mention, at the top of the “purchase book” page, that neither the Kindle nor the paperback version of your book is available; it appears that you waiting for the proof copy.

    So what happens with the availability of the pdf version? Already downloadable or not?

    Best regards,

    RT

    Bob DiNatale Reply:

    Roger,

    Not sure I understand. All forms will be the same in content.

    The only thing I’m waiting for in the proof is to see what it looks like on paper before click the “Publish” button.

    I cannot release the Kindle version until I okay the proof (click the “Publish” button). That is why there will be a small delay time between the Kindle release and the paperback. The Kindle release will be immediate… The paperback release will be a little longer than immediate availability. Hours? Days? I’m not really sure… This is the first time I’m using “CreateSpace” to publish a book.

    Any of you who have thought about publishing your own book, I can save the “CreateSpace” experience has been wonderful.

  11. Hi Bob,
    Amazon links are still inactive. Is there a way I can be notified when the book is available?
    Thank you,

    Matthew,

    It may be better for you to keep checking back to the “purchase book” page.

    I will be receiving the printed paperback proof copy on Wednesday. Providing there’s not changes the paperback should be available next week.
    The Kindle version should be sooner.

    Thanks for inquiring,
    Bob

  12. Kindle: $0.99, PDF: $9.99. Does it mean I can purchase 1/10 of price with Kindle, I understand I need to wait till November 1 for Kindle?
    If so, do I miss any advantage in PDF, other than I can easily copy extra file?

    Kinya,

    IYes, that is my intent to fight have lucked with Kindle and Amazon publishing.

    Not being a Kindle user so I can’t speak with total knowledge but the Kindle version should have acted links. I’m not sure it would have interactive charts and graphs and, I’m not sure Kindle books provide any print function. This might be a difference if I decise to make my eBok prinable as have been asked by a few users.

    Stay tuned.

  13. FYI – link to Amazon Kindle purchase not working.
    Wonderfully clear article at Luminous Landscape. Thanks.

    I recently started “overexposing” a bit using camera matrix metering but had not taken it nearly far enough.

    Thank you for your comments on the article.

    I find photos who

    I think you are like most photographers who are exposing to the right. The additional exposure inches down the right of the histogram… There is still a lack of commitment to really move towards the rightmost end of the histogram. Hopefully, after reading this article, you’ll give your raw captures a little more exposure then you will get the maximum benefit from optimizing your digital exposure.
