This eBook is intended for photographers at a beginner and intermediate level where lighting is concerned. There is a lot of beginner material that won’t be of much use to the advanced photographer who already knows everything there is to know about studio lighting. The emphasis is on studio lighting, not natural light.
Topics covered in This eBook include the fundamentals of gear and lighting options and modifiers, traditional portrait lighting patterns, one-light setups, multiple-light setups (main, fill, hair, background light), classic portraits, headshots, full-length lighting, white background lighting, and other topics.
Chapter List (117 Pages):
The illustrations mostly feature main and fill lighting represented by small flash units modified with shoot-through umbrellas. However, any of the light sources can be re- placed by other types of lighting and modifiers to suit your particular needs.

What You'll Need:
4. Use a lighter to set the twine on fire.
5. Spin the bottle constantly so the heat doesn't settle in one place.
This neat little photography trick will certainly come in handy when dealing with product photos like this one:

Black-and-white, often abbreviated B/W or B&W, is a term referring to a number of monochrome forms in visual arts. Black-and-white as a description may be considered a misnomer in that the images are not ordinarily starkly contrasted black and white but combine black and white in a continuum producing a range of shades of gray:
Digital photography has very clearly changed the way we can shoot in black and white, and it is perfectly obvious that by far the most important practical difference between a sensor and film is that now you can have both color and monochrome from the same shot. There is no prior choice to be made, no decision to load black-and-white film rather than color film before setting out. So, why wouldn’t you try it?
