Whether you’re a novice, intermediate, or advanced photographer, you will find Shaping Light beneficial. It effectively describes and explains key concepts relative to lighting. Although all the chapters are first-rate, I particularly enjoyed the chapters on “Specular Light,” “Diffused Light,” “Beam Modification,” “Diffuse Modifiers,” and “Fills, Non-fills, and Blocking.” Without question, the authors are quite knowledgeable and experienced.
My only criticism is that the models shown lack sufficient diversity. Few people of color are portrayed. The great majority of portraits are of younger, white women, most of whom are blond. Perhaps the next edition will make amends.
All in all, this is a terrific instructional work that will make me a better photographer. I highly recommend it.
