about

Lighting is one of the most important creative components of any image. Joe Lavine and Brad Bartholomew, commercial photographers and instructors, offer a unique approach to learning about studio lighting. They start with their philosophy of lighting, tackling the characteristics of light and how to approach building your shots. Then they discuss some basic photographic concepts and equipment needs, and how to use this knowledge to start a successful career in photography.

Packed with gorgeous images, this book provides two distinct perspectives from the authors based on their experience as studio photographers and instructors. This is not a recipe book, but instead provides the background and technical knowledge to understand how light works and how to create your own successful images.

In this guide you will learn about:

  • Color temperature, filters, flash duration, metering, and the histogram

This guide for beginning to intermediate shooters covers all the practical aspects of starting a photography career and setting up your first studio–with insider details to expand your photography skills and turn your passion for images into a professional career.
