Format: Paperback
I'll start with what I regard as the positive elements.
There are lots of good pictures of light setups and the resulting images. The author encourages the reader to experiment and to photograph the setups used. That is something I intend to do. Even if you don't have the luxury of two high end cameras (I suspect the author does), even a mobile phone camera will give you a record of the setup. Link setup shot and result (use keywords!) and you'll know how to repeat a good effect.
There is a good section on setups with one flashgun. Useful for those without bottomless pockets.
The author stresses the importance of shooting raw but doesn't really say that some of his suggestions on things like white balance can only be achieved with raw files. The author also persists in using 'RAW' as if it is a file format. It isn't and should never be capitalized.
Now for the negative points.
This is a book about lighting with flash, not general lighting. There is no mention of continuous lighting. That's why I say the title is misleading.
The author is a professional, as clearly stated on the back cover. That means that casual amateurs may be rather dismayed when they discover the cost of the flash equipment he talks about. He has some setups where the three flashguns alone will set you back nearly £1000 new.
The author is also based in the USA so some UK readers will give a hollow laugh at the assertion that a dining room makes a good home tabletop studio "with room for several lighting stands"!
The book may annoy some Canon users as the author has used Nikon gear for all the illustrations. He does mention Nissin flashguns.
There is one serious omission in his stuff on basic principles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend 2 Oct. 2013
By Eugene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very pleased with this book. Mr. Harrington put together a very clear, concise and attractive package. The book goes over the gear, "science" and the application of photographic lighting quite nicely. It covered a myriad of shooting situations and provided many easy behind the scene photos showing "how to get the look" as well as the finished product.

Though I was surprised how small it was at first, I quickly found the advantage of this. It fits into my bag or jacket pocket nicely and is easy to pull out and put away when reading on the subway...

I recommend this book to anyone starting out with photographic lighting as well as those who want a nice reference book. That can easily fit in most any camera bag...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great instructor 30 Aug. 2013
By Frederick Pilot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the book after taking a one-day training course from the instructor. Great instructor with a nice approach to classroom teaching, great book. He did seem a little too loyal to one of his sponsors who makes flash accessories, but after all he has to put the kids through school. He left a high-paying job to do what he loves and it shows. Look him up, take his class.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a must read and bring along in your camera bag on assignment.... 5 Aug. 2013
By Marketing Holistics - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Super comprehensive treatment of Photographic Lighting from an accomplished pro who shares a multitude of techniques which allow one at varying levels of competence to quickly jump to the next level or a few steps up.

I love the tear out guides in the back as well as the comprehensive discussion of various photographic styles and subjects. Definitely order this book...it's compact and easy to bring w/you on assignment.

3.0 out of 5 stars I was expecting a little more 4 Sept. 2013
By mk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First of all FYI everything is for Nikon users (even though Canon flash works pretty much the same way). And I was expecting a little more from that book.
