Great book, beautiful pictures,
This review is from: Lighting for Portrait Photography (Revised Edition) (Paperback)
I bought this along with several other books on lighting in general and particularly studio lighting as I am setting up my own studio.
This book is packed full of beautiful and professional images from front to back. If you are looking for a book that shows you a lighting setup and how that translates to the final image this is the book for you.
A simple key is used on all images to show you the type of light, number, lens and aperture and this is consistent throughout. Shows you difference between natural and studio light and how the number of lights gives you more choice. Rather refreshingly though there is a focus on keeping it simple. Most of the images can be recreated with one or two lights and a reflector so even beginners can get started.
I have books on the technical details of light and lighting and they are very useful, but if you're more visual this book will help you along, or at the very least inspire you to shoot some great images.
