Light Science & Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting


Light Science & Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting by Fil Hunter, Steven Biver, Paul Fuqua

2015 | English | 400 pages | PDF | 112 MB

Photographic lighting is a topic that will never go out of style, no matter how sophisticated cameras and other technology get. Even with the most high-tech gear, photographers still need to put a lot of thought and vision into lighting their photographs in order to get great results. This key skill has the power to dramatically and quickly improve photographs.

Light Science and Magic provides you with a comprehensive theory of the nature and principles of light, with examples and instructions for practical application. Featuring photographs, diagrams, and step-by-step instructions, this book speaks to photographers of varying levels. It provides invaluable information on how to light the most difficult subjects, such as surfaces, metal, glass, liquids, extremes (black-on-black and white-on-white), and portraits.

This new edition includes:

All new chapter titled "Setting Up Your New Studio"
A re-vamped and expanded chapter 8 now titled "Making Portraits"
New appendix of reliable photo gear sources
Over 100 new photographs and informational sidebars
Updated information about advances in flash equipment, LED panels and fluorescent lights

Styles of lighting continue to change, but the nature of light will always remain the same. Once photographers understand the basic physics of lighting, they can apply that knowledge to a broad range of photographic styles.
