Lighting Essentials: A Subject-Centric Approach for Digital Photographers

Lighting Essentials: A Subject-Centric Approach for Digital Photographers46. Lighting Essentials: A Subject-Centric Approach for Digital Photographers by Don Giannatti

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This book is full of photographic examples, often with a shot of the setup as well as the final photograph. Though there aren't lighting diagrams, he describes his setups. Nearly all of the shots are portraits of women in different environments. If you want to know how to photograph someone outside while also using flash, this would be a good resource.

It will help if you already know a bit about photography and lighting equipment.

I would've preferred fewer sexy style shots of women (e.g., thumbs hooked through her bikini bottom as though she's going to pull it off), but I reckon that's what ad agencies want a lot of the time.

The book has a thorough table of contents and index which is always handy.


Note: I received a copy of this book for free.
