Overview

By emphasizing basic principles of good lighting and how to apply them, this informative guide shows advanced amateur photographers and professionals how to improve their photographic skills. After explaining different types of light, flash basics, and the benefits of on- and off-camera lighting techniques, it discusses how to use this information to increase the “gasp factor”—that powerful, emotional response that compels the viewer to take a second look at a photograph. Also included are assignments meant to help solidify this new flash knowledge for the photographer in order to put it into practice. As a bonus, the book contains inspirational stories demonstrating real-world applications of the techniques from a photojournalist with decades of experience.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Barry Staver and his cameras are the ultimate storytellers. Having worked on hundreds of stories with him, I know. As with all difficult things, when photography is done correctly, it looks easy. It isn’t. Barry Staver’s work looks effortless. It isn’t. His photographs work because of the level of his professionalism, his sensitivity, his unobtrusiveness, his humor, and a great deal of thought. A good story never really ends. And a good photograph lasts forever. Barry’s work is proof of that."  —MC Marden, photography editor, People magazine

"[This book] covers speedlights, exposure, flash basics, adding off-camera lights, mixing in ambient light, adding light modifiers, and the equipment used." —www.BookNews.com
