This review is from: Light Science and Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting (Paperback)
This is a brilliant book on lighting. The authors have managed to strike a balance between the highly technical and the "too easy". The information presented has to be absorbed and applied. I used this book like a textbook. I made notes and added my own observations. Once you diligently work through the book, the magic does happen :)
I loved the chapters on photographing different types of materials such as glass and metal. It has really increased my confidence as a photographer and has given me the motivation to try new ways of lighting and setups. The knowledge contained in this book can be applied to all types of photography, even macro.
