I really didn't understand the whole lighting thing until I read this book. I really needed someone to explain it very clearly so I could use the techniques and not only know how, but WHY. Especially thought the before and after photos were super important for those of us to whom lighting does not come easily.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I have just finished reading this book and have found it SO easy to read and understand. So many wonderful
"real world" applications. Very well written. I would recommend this book to a novice or a seasoned pro alike. Great information.

This is one of the best books I have read on lighting; it is easy to read with top quality photographs in the book to show you exactly the concept with the setup of lights and theory. It is as much for the professional photographer with experience as a newer photographer who needs to learn basics. I took a lighting workshop from Stephanie Zettl last year and she is very knowledgeable about portraits and wedding photography and her lighting skills are amazing. This is one book I am sure to refer to repeatedly to change up my lighting in my work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book doesn't just throw a bunch of lighting theory at you, it breaks it down into simple, easy-to-understand concepts. The photographic examples that accompany each topic really help.
It's packed with information on how to handle the challenges of lighting on location - beyond the safe confines of a controlled studio situation. And there's a great overview of basic lighting concepts, too.
I especially loved the "problem-solving on location" section, where the author shows multiple lighting solutions for a bunch of different scenarios.

This book was like taking a college lighting course but much cheaper! It covers all different aspects of lighting starting with how to see and recognize different lighting scenarios. Then it goes through how to use those scenarios, modify them and create them from scratch. Plus it has before and after photos which I find super helpful. A well worth it read.
