'This book is fantastic! ...The terminology is easy to understand and techniques are explained in a "no nonsense" format. Excellent for beginners to intermediate photographers. I have had this book for a few months now and through practising and completing the revision exercises, I have a better understanding of the techniques used for photographic lighting situations - location and studio.'

It also discusses film and how it responds to light, the use of a light meter and so on.
To conclude, the book is a good concise reference to the general topic of light and lighting. It's easy to read and very accessible. Well worth the money!

I have had this book for a few months now and through practicing and completing the revision exercises, I have a better understanding of the techniques used for photograhic lighting situations - location and studio (lighting ratios etc)
I hope they publish many more books like this one.
Perhaps if you are a teacher without an idea you could use this for lesson plans. The authors are an example of university teachers who publish garbage to appear to advance their status on campus. Otherwise this book is useless.
