Photographer's Lighting Handbook

Front Cover
Amherst Media, Incorporated, 2002 - Photography - 127 pages
Professional photographers have access to specialized and often expensive lighting equipment, but amateurs can take great photographs with much simpler setups or even just available light. This guide explains how to get the best results from the most minimal investment with plenty of patience and practice. Photography is the art of capturing light on paper, and all that is needed to take wonderful pictures is a sophisticated understanding of how light works. This handbook provides that knowledge, starting with technical explanations of film and lenses and moving through different general scenarios (indoor, outdoor, nighttime) to specific case histories.
