Rating details. Sort order. When looking for books on photographic techniques I ran into a bit of a problem.. 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..
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 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.
See a Problem?
This is for people who want to play with lighting, at least in part, for they joy of itself. Feb 21, Jonelle rated it it was amazing Shelves: I think this is a must have as well. I am still reading this by plucking information from each chapter when needed.
This is not the kind of set down and read from front to end text book which is good. You can the information you need from the chapters you are interested in. I need to purchase this one too.
Of cou I think this is a must have as well. Of course it is easier if you have money to spare on lighting equipment. But I think I will stick to old fashion light bulbs and foil! Keep it old school or broke school Jan 10, Billrogers rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Billrogers by: 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 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. 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 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.
This is probably true. Guys I'm psyched. Jun 28, Jedrek Kostecki rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: The greatest book on light and photography I've ever seen. An excellent guide for anyone interested in controlled light photography and very handy for anyone who's interested in photography in general. Jan 06, Jennifer added it Shelves: I'm trying to work my way through this I'm on chapter four , but this technical side of things is just too I'm not sure what this says about my photography potential.
Sep 22, Courtney rated it really liked it. There's a lot of fun light info. 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. A thought provoking book that talks in simple terms about light and how to work with it.
Literally a revelation. I will be writing about it soon on my website. More to the point it has inspired me to learn more, practice more and understand the more I know the more I need to learn. Jan 28, Aaron rated it it was amazing.
This is more for Photographers than anything. Amazing book about what it all goes over. This book distills everything you need to know about photographic lighting into just over pages.
Through repetition of key principles, and the gradual layering of more details into the example scenes at a pace that we can all cope with, it is easy to follow and full of tricks. Through clear diagrams and text, I found myself enjoying the discussion of different surfaces and how they reflect light, how small and large lights create different kinds of shadows, on to how to make perfect copies u This book distills everything you need to know about photographic lighting into just over pages.
Through clear diagrams and text, I found myself enjoying the discussion of different surfaces and how they reflect light, how small and large lights create different kinds of shadows, on to how to make perfect copies using some basic principles. Overall an excellent book, accessible for its teaching of fundamentals that every photographer should know, while providing a path to more advanced learning.
Do you need to understand light? You will, after reading this. By far the most useful book on understanding light. Plenty of examples and really useful advice. It is one thing to look at recipes videos, and quite another to get the required knowledge to light your subject, which will always be different.
Photographers need light, and this book is a sort of Bible to master the light. No matter your level of experience in photos, this books will help you go further.
Light: Science and Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting by Fil Hunter
Not perfect, but rather close Sorry, it seems like an advertising slogan: I swear it's not. Nov 30, Tim Dumol rated it it was amazing Shelves: Fantastic treatment of how to get the perfect lighting for your shot.
Starts from first principles diffusion, direct reflection, polarized reflection and goes through sample setups for different subjects metal, glass, white on white, Great primer on the subtle techniques and theory for controlling lighting to get better photographs.
Can be used as a textbook or lab book to practice the techniques or a handy reference for common situations. Mar 10, Gerry Pelser rated it it was amazing. I would not be the photographer I am without this book.
Light Science & Magic (5th ed.)
This is the literal bible for anything lighting related. If you are serious about your photography, get this book, read, it study, and study it constantly. Feb 03, Kelly rated it it was amazing.
Great information! Now, if only I could find more time for actually taking photos Sep 11, Kimberly rated it it was amazing. My editor at my college newspaper job in the early 90s told me to get this book. It is a practical course in light and shadow that I think still holds relevance for today's digital age. Mar 10, Nouha ShawQi rated it really liked it Shelves: Best choose for anyone interested in photography.
Jun 23, Satya rated it it was amazing. If lighting is the language of photography, the book "Light: Excellent book on light and how it works. This is universal From this solid foundation the authors show how to light various common photographic situations.
This first edition from doesn't cover more recent developments such as digital cameras That said - it does this concisely and does discuss colour correction of lights and lens. There were quite a few annoying editorial errors references to wrong figures, etc.
The fifth edition was published in and is on my to-read list already. It has more pages of detail plus an extra co-author! Not well written, terrible typography, typical textbook. Redad through to the bitter end, though, because it did contain some valuable information, but finding it was like panning for gold. Jan 03, Schmusepferdchen rated it it was amazing. This book is how light behaves and how it changes the picture. It covers basic principles to understand the lightning of pictures.
Since the book focuses rather on principles than on certain situations allthough it uses some cases to illustrate what has been said it is a book that had a very high value for me. It helped me to "see light" in photos. The authors have done an amazing job by writing about a difficult subject in an easy style that allows the reader to fully understand the concepts of lighting and how it will shape your images.
