Meet the Author

Back in the dark ages of view cameras and enlargers, Syl Arena studied commercial photography at Brooks Institute and fine art photography at the University of Arizona. An early indication of Syl's willingness to explore the boundaries of photography was his construction of a pinhole camera into which he loaded 20 x 24 litho film. Over the years, Syl has shot commercially for newspapers, magazines and catalogs. He has been recognized for his expertise on color-critical workflow and his ability to turn noon to night by firing off a dozen Speedlites simultaneously. Today, Syl covers the world of photography on his blog PixSylated.com, is a full-time art teacher, and leads workshops around the world including at the popular Maine Media Workshops. He is the author of the best-selling first edition of Speedliter’s Handbook, as well as Lighting for Digital Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots. He lives in San Luis Obispo, CA, and can be found at pixsylated.com and sylarena.com.
