How to Set Up Photography Lighting for a Home Studio ( paper edition )

It is one of the most expensive books I have bought at £5.44 for 88 pages and then they are double spaced so really only 44 pages.

I wanted to know how to set up the lighting for a home studio. So skip the first 62 pages, nothing about lighting set-ups there. Six lighting set-ups are discussed 1) The Rembrandt 2) Clamshell one light 3) Clamshell two lights 4) Rim lighting 5) Butterfly 6) Loop lighting. Unfortunately, for the two most complicated set-ups, the text does not correspond with the lighting diagram, so what are you supposed to do? The lighting diagrams are only for flash ie instructed to reduce output to a quarter, can't do that with continuous lighting. Only a plan view is shown without distances, it is usual to also have an isometric view to show heights. So not really a practical guide you can copy.
Obviously no editor has been involved in the production of this book, neither has it been proof read. The paper is yellow and coarse, the most professional part of this book is the glossy cover. It appears to be written by a child determined to maximise the word count. It is not worth wasting time reading it.

This is a fairly quick and easy book to read and understand.
It's just a lot more basic than I had hoped for.
So, not one I would recommend to anyone who knows there photography skills.

However, for a total novice it would be very informative, but a few diagrams wouldn't have gone amiss to visually show
what each particular lighting pattern is that is being discussed.

You can get plenty of free video guides on this subject on you tube and discussions on photography chat forums that may be better.

Having received my first DSLR for Christmas I knew I needed to do some reading up in order to put it to good use. I'd never really thought about a home studio but it seemed like a nice idea so I gave this book a try. It really is very helpful for the beginner. There is good explanation of the rationale behind setting up your own studio and the importance of proper lighting.The focus is on lighting but other subjects related to a home studio are covered, even ideas for setting yourself up in business.

The most helpful section is on the necessary gear. Elsewhere it all comes across full of jargon and confusing but this is very simply laid out with sensible advice on going about investing in what can be incredibly expensive equipment. There are lots of pictures and everything is explained in a friendly style, good for reassuring the layperson! This equipment is then collected into different bundled setups for achieving different effects and there are links to videos to see it in action, a very useful idea. Overall a terrifically useful starter guide!

A bit brief and not very many setup models to replicate at home.

Utter rubbish, I genuinely felt cheated, this is essentially the skimpiest badly edited, badly planned howto that I've ever bought

To be honest even as a novice in lighting I found this book really basic. It didn't focus enough of the different lighting set ups or give any kind of objectives or assignments to work towards like other books do to put what was learned into practice.

Even as a novice taking your first steps into lighting I would give this book a miss, not worth the money.

I am not quite sure where to start, it is that bad. It really tells you nothing in real terms of setting up a studio, that has any value. There are some links to third party YouTube videos, not even made by the author. Two out of five of the basic lightings are mentioned. The book on setting up a studio including equipment sis very vague and I feel one can get more by surfing the web.
The worst ever
