    Evrey photographer should know what is in this book.

    If you are newer to photography and don't quite know how to make your pictures to turn out how you want them, then you should get this book. This book is a good introduction to lighting and covers everything you need to start taking control of your pictures.
    Lighting is one of the technical skills you need to understand to be able to get the results you want. Lighting can minimize or exagerate wrinkles, skin blemishes, muscle tone, texture, and more. It determines the shadows and highlights(while this is obvious it has a great deal to do with how your photo looks).
    This is one of the basic areas of photography that is often overlooked by beginers. I spent a long time reading photo magizines and working on stuff that did not allow me to control my photography. This book will get you up and moving making it a bargin.
    You may also find yourself wanting to learn more about exposure, compesition, and photoshop/digital editing. All four areas are more important than having the best lenses or the latest and greatest cameras. Consider the earlier digital images in magizines like National Geograpic and CD covers from the early 2000's. Think about the low res images on the internet that catch you find compelling and interesting. These images do not depend on a magical lens or the latest and greatest camera. The photographers you find yourself admiring knew something you don't and I find myself trying to catch up.
