    Calling all Photographers!

    I've been searching for a book like this for quite a while. If you, as a photographer-student, have ever admired the Hollywood style lighting, and have ever wanted to know how they did it, this is the book for you. The author acknowledges that the diagrams are not infallible, still, the suggestions are a great help. I've haven't yet finished the book, but the images are a great lesson in themselves. Enjoy!
