    When looking for books on photographic techniques I ran into a bit of a problem. many of them were heavily focused on so, you want to take pictures of half naked young girls, well here is how Very few books focused on anything other then how to make skin look good I was VERY happy to find this book.This book spends most of its time going over fundamentals Rather then give recipes for various shoots, it attempts to teach you the underlying mechanisms of lighting so you can build your own When looking for books on photographic techniques I ran into a bit of a problem. many of them were heavily focused on so, you want to take pictures of half naked young girls, well here is how Very few books focused on anything other then how to make skin look good I was VERY happy to find this book.This book spends most of its time going over fundamentals Rather then give recipes for various shoots, it attempts to teach you the underlying mechanisms of lighting so you can build your own setups The authors encourage you to take their examples and recreate them and post them to their flicker group , which I admit I did not do but I liked the idea.For examples they used a wide variety of photographic fields people, landscapes, product, so it really did not pigeonhole into a single type which really helped get across the whole fundamentals aspect They kept a good balance between humor and seriousness, and I think on the whole worked very well.It is a book I highly recommend to anyone who wants to really learn about and understand lighting However if what one wants is a quick set of patterns they can use and get on to other things, this really is not the book for them This is for people who want to play with lighting, at least in part, for they joy of itself

    This is the best book I ve ever read on photographic lighting It reads like a college textbook, and I believe it is used for this purpose.Many lighting books are light on theory sorry, couldn t resist , leaving the photographer without an understanding of why to do things a certain way The authors spend a great deal of time explaining the various types of reflections and their characteristics, emphasizing the key point that most photographs are images of reflected light.Anyone who reads This is the best book I ve ever read on photographic lighting It reads like a college textbook, and I believe it is used for this purpose.Many lighting books are light on theory sorry, couldn t resist , leaving the photographer without an understanding of why to do things a certain way The authors spend a great deal of time explaining the various types of reflections and their characteristics, emphasizing the key point that most photographs are images of reflected light.Anyone who reads Light Science and Magic will gain, as the authors state, a set of tools and ideas that may be applied to various situations in the future

    Two philosophies broken for this book so far I spent 40 bucks, on a book with an ATROCIOUSLY UGLY cover, which I picked it up in a CHAIN BOOKSTORE one bored afternoon Nuts I couldn t put it back down again and just abandon it there, like a mill puppy in a pet store it looked so ridiculously useful and accessibly written I will make your life so much better it promised with its weird bouncing silver balls and custard colored font This is probably true Guys I m psyched.

    There s a lot of fun light info in this book A lot that I will never use, but it s interesting nonetheless I especially enjoyed the breakdown of RAW and what our eye prefers to see as far as curves are concerned.

    I m trying to work my way through this I m on chapter four , but this technical side of things is just too technical for my taste I guess I m not sure what this says about my photography potential.
