From the Publisher

"This is a quiet book full of information, but bubbling with the kind of energy that is created when you realize you can do what you thought you couldn't."  —Lighting Essentials.com

"Pure gold, showing real solutions to real lighting situations and along the way creating some of the most natural-looking on-location portraits."  —Shutterbug

"I wanted to do a shoot using just the sunlight outside my studio. No electronic flashes, no multiple light sources, and no large studio flashes."  —Kirk Tuck, Studio Photography

"Richly illuminated with location portraits and a few still lifes, and written in a clean down-to-earth style."  —ppmag.com

"The beauty of this book is how much information is packed into 122 pages of content. And yet the information and explanations are deep enough to give the reader an understanding of the subject in order to start experimenting with it."  —robmalgieri.com
