Step-By-Step Lighting for Studio Portrait Photography By Jeff Smith Cover Image


Documenting the process of lighting studio portraits from start to finish, this handy manual covers both the artistic and technical aspects of achieving success. Short one- or two-page lessons are amply illustrated to guide the reader through each phase, and before-and-after images--or image sequences showing variations and alternative approaches--are presented to facilitate understanding. Noting that light can present a special challenge that is part art and part science, new photographers are encouraged to bring this guide to practice sessions. By working on replicating or refining the provided examples, a self-study course can be created, allowing for comprehensive learning.
