Practical advice for real world situations
on 14 February 2013
As is obvious from the title, the book teaches how to handle difficult lighting situations. It does so by examining a typical problem we all encounter too often; shooting in mid day sun, shooting in flourecent light and so on, and then step by step walking through suggestions on how to handle the problem.
I have read quite a few books on photography, lighting, composition etc, and too many of them (all of them actually) suffer from a lack of "teaching quality" - they often just show a great picture and explain how they made it. Whereas in this book they teach you how to actually get from here to there. Starting with a typical crappy photo and walking through the thought- and work process to arrive to one or more solutions.
I think it is fair to say I have gained more practical knowledge from this book than from any other so far. So five stars it is! I only hope to find more books with this approach.
