    A great book on lighting for digital photography

    Some books are so good that, after reading them, you want to share the experience with others. That's exactly what happened with Professional Digital Photography -- hence this review. I think I need to qualify my review. I am an amateur with experience in film and digital. I got interested in digital because powerful tools are more affordable than their film counterparts. For example, I don't need tons of filters, hugely expensive light kits or my own color lab; Photoshop and a good photo printer go a long way for a fraction of the price. With this in mind, I am frustrated by recent titles on digital photography. Half of the books out there are essentially dictionaries. What's a CCD, what's a pixel, what's a computer? Yeah right. The other half are 'me too' books on Photoshop tips and tricks. How to use adjustment layers, how to use the stamp or the corrector tool, and more. Useful but how many copycats do we need? Professional digital photography dare to be different. It focus on one specific topic: lighting for digital photography (including color correction and creative lighting) and it offers tons of information on the topic. The author share his (and his brother) experience on the subject. The book includes both a solid theoretical background and lots of practical (how-to) information. It discusses in great details those techniques that are unique to the digital process, showing you how to get more from the tools you already know. I feel like I'm on the other side of the mirror and have just stumble upon a fascinating new world. Dave Montizambert is a great guide in this journey. A word of warning though: [as the other reviewer noted,] this is not an book for beginners. Nor is it complete (it has a strong biais towards studio lighting). If you are total novice to lighting, get yourself a reference in addition to this book (I recommend the 'Lighting for...' series from Rotovision). But if you're past novice and you would like to get progress, make sure you get your own copy. You won't regret it.
