The Complete Guide to Light and Lighting in Digital Photography by Michael Freeman
Most of us don’t want to be professional photographers, but at the very least we need to be able to take good documentary photographs. When my husband and I started out taking pictures of my jewelry, we were still using slides and he shot everything with a real 35 mm SLR.
Now that we’ve gone digital, I shoot most of my own pictures, but he still knows more about photography and lighting.
So I was excited to see this book on lighting specifically for digital photography. It is clearly written, has lots and lots of great photographs.
One benefit you can get from this book is that if you want to buy some lights but are overwhelmed by the choices in the photography store, this will help you shop by explaining what all those things are called. It’s basic without being insulting.
