Light is at the very heart of photography and plays a fundamental role in creating successful images. Not only does light affect brightness, it also determines tone, mood, atmosphere, texture, colour and luminosity. Mastering Lighting & Flash Photography contains everything you need to know about controlling and manipulating light to capture the beauty of the world around you in your own signature style. Written and photographed by a multi award-winning photographer, the book describes and demonstrates all the key topics: from understanding light and how to use it; through choosing the best kit and mastering the essential techniques; to different forms of flash photography and studio lighting, tips from leading professionals, and elevating your prints in post-production. Aimed at the serious amateur, this is a practical guide to achieving professional results in digital photography.


"The author's wide experience helps in bringing in lots of examples which do their job well in illustrating the capabilities (and pitfalls) involved with any particular light source. Perhaps the most important message that's communicated is just how much lighting choices affect the look of your photography, and, that they can be an integral part of developing your own photographic style." - North Light Images
