Best-selling guide on lighting theory covering the principles, applications, and equipment for informed lighting decisions

-- Numerous photographs and illustrations provide clear examples

-- New chapters on painting with light and shooting digitally

This highly respected guide introduces a logical theory of photographic lighting -- one that teaches beginning photographers to predict results before setting up lights. It provides the reader with a comprehensive theory of the nature and principles of light to allow individual photographers to use lighting to express their own creativity.

The third edition includes a new chapter on painting with light -- the invaluable technique of moving the light source during a long exposure. Also included is new information on shooting digital, in particular the popular method of shooting on a white background so that subjects can be digitally "peeled" off the background and inserted into another image in a program such as Photoshop or Premiere.
