[PDF eBook eTextbook]
Publisher: Amherst Media (March 4, 2013)
“This should be a textbook in every beginning photo course and a permanent addition to every shooter’s library.”
Providing readers with a study of learning how to turn poorly lit images into finely crafted, masterfully lit photographs, this guidebook instills photographers with the self-confidence to think on their feet and photograph any portrait subject anywhere. Acclaimed photographer Neil van Niekirk presents seven distinctly different lighting scenarios—available light, exposure metering, a touch of flash, bounced on-camera flash, off-camera flash, video light, and hard sunlight—to show readers how to manipulate the direction and quality of light, the subject’s and photographer’s position, and numerous other variables so as to turn a bad image into a stunning, professional-level portrait. Packed with dozens of instructional, full-color photos, this work also features 10 sample photo sessions, allowing readers the opportunity to see the seven lighting scenarios put to practice.
Neil van Niekerk is a professional photographer and the author “of Off-Camera Flash Techniques for Digital Photographers” and “On-Camera Flash Techniques for Digital Wedding””and “Portrait Photography.” He lives in Wayne, New Jersey.
