Overview

Aspiring photographers are always looking for that edge, that fresh point of view to add drama to their images. Photographer Joey L. found his vision early, drawing critical acclaim as a brilliant commercial photographer with a distinctive technical expertise for lighting.
            In Photographing Shadow and Light, Joey lifts the curtain on his dramatic, creatively fearless approach to portraiture, sharing his personal philosophy and a behind-the-scenes look at 15 striking photo sessions—from personal projects shot in Africa, India, and Brooklyn to commercial shoots for 50 Cent, the Jonas Brothers, and Project Runway All Stars. Joey provides readers with a step-by-step description of how he visualized each shoot, formed meaningful connections with his subjects, and “built” his signature dramatic lighting effects—one light at a time.

    Must read for anyone in high school that is thinking about becoming a photographer

    Joey L. has developed a style of lighting that works for him. He covers how he arrived at this style, what it accomplishes, and then applies it to many situations. He always starts with his simple lighting and then explains what he is seeing and why he add each additional light.
    But more important than his lighting technique is his work ethic and ability to interact with people. This is a must read for anyone, especially a young person (high school age) that is thinking about becoming a professional photographer.
    Joey L. is the exception. I believe he is a blend of very high I.Q. and common sense (very rare for a person so young, he was only 21).
    I am going to watch his career with great interest.
