    This book is the one to get if you want to learn a lot about studio lighting and photos.

    Here's the deal, most photo books read as though a person put a microphone in front of a photographer and asked them about each photograph. The writing in most books by well known pros is stilted and plodding. The big draw is the photos. But you can't learn theory and practice from a bunch of disjointed anecdotes about how the "big name" did it in the old days.... Tuck is first a great and engaging writer and second a very, very good photographer. That's the way you really want the priorities to pan out if you are going to buy a book on a subject. Tuck knows that what you really want to know is why and how to do a lighting style---not some vague story about how a famous photographer had a bad flight and stayed up all night and used a crew of six to light a celebrity at sunrise. I'm sure those stories play well with people who don't really have to do assignments but I'd really like to have this book in front of me if I was getting ready to go out on an assignment! Two of my friends have it pegged. When celebrity photographers "run out of gas" in the market they resort to writing their memoirs. Tuck is not doing that. He's writing the actual owner's manual but in a way that feels almost like a cool novel.

    If you want to learn how to light stuff in the studio, run out and buy this book.
