Overview

An amazing (and some would say magical) resource on photographic lighting that has been talked about in the community and recommended for years. This highly respected guide has been thoroughly updated and revised for content and design - it is now produced in full color! It introduces a logical theory of photographic lighting so if you are starting out in photography you will learn how to predict results before setting up lights. This is not primarily a how-to book with only set examples for you to copy. Rather, Light: Science and Magic provides you with a comprehensive theory of the nature and principles of light to allow you to use lighting to express your own creativity.

Numerous photographs and illustrations provide clear examples of the theories, while sidebars highlight special lighting questions. Expanded chapters on available light in portraiture, as well as new information on digital equipment and terminology make this a must have update!

Great book for semi-professional and professional photographers. Students could learn much. But you have to be open to the fact you may not have put all the parts together that this book does. I will never think of light and photography in the same way now. Definitely one to get. Does not matter if you shoot digital or film. The information is applicable for ALL photography.

I am a beginner with some experience - on trial and error base. This book gave me deeper understanding of light and the way one can manage the light. Good examples, understandable language, improves skills if you follow the examples.
