Beginners guide to lighting techniques
on 18 April 2014
This book should have been titled 'Beginners guide to lighting techniques'The information on lighting layouts and equipment used is pretty basic, but can be useful to to people with no previous experience, however the images used in this publication look very contrived and in my opinion let the book down. Some of these publications aimed primarily at the US market, do not travel well.
' Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it' from Scott Kelby is a far superior product. You get much more detailed information on lighting configurations, equipment used, rational behind the shoot, and some stunning images. My advice would be to look at this publication before you purchase a book on this subject.
