Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Most experts agree that the most important element in photography (and in painting, for that matter) is the use of light. Digital photography provides a level of control over the capture and manipulation of light that is far beyond the limits of film photography. Freeman (The Complete Guide to Digital Photography) here offers the most comprehensive manual on how to interpret and alter light through digital means. He begins with exposure strategies that are unique to the digital camera—the histogram (a graph of the distribution of tones in an image), the measurement of light, white balance, and hue. The next four chapters deal with daylight, artificial light, photographic lighting, and digital lighting. The final section takes a detailed look at studio lighting, fill lights, reflectors, etc. Highly recommended for all collections.
