Abstract:

With basic information on the characteristics of light and specific techniques for controlling light in a variety of environments, this resource teaches photographers how to harness light, the most important factor of good photography. A discussion of light basics that includes exposure, colour balance, and light ratios provides photographers with the essential understanding they need to approach any photography project. Specific analyses of studio, portrait, and indoor and outdoor lighting detail how to use studio strobes, set up a Rembrandt lighting scheme for a portrait, diffuse window light, and flash-fill with direct sunlight. Tips and photographs from more than 30 wedding, portrait, and commercial photographers offer practical advice and inspiration to help photographers take advantage of - rather than be limited by - light's powerful effect.
