Jeff Smith's Studio Flash Photography: Techniques for Digital Portrait Photographers (Paperback)
With a practical approach to the art and business of professional photography, this handbook shows how to use lighting more effectively, efficiently, and economically. Beginning with a discussion of lighting sources and moving into an outline of light modifiers, this guide demonstrates how a few light sources can be infinitely modified to create precision lighting effects that are customized for each subject. Every aspect of designing a flattering lighting setup is covered in detail, with techniques from head-and-shoulders business portraits to full-length glamour images. Including before-and-after shots and ample setup shots to show lighting from both the photographer's and subject's point of view, this invaluable resource is a must-have for photographers looking to improve their studio lighting skills.
