Reviews - What do customers think about The Studio Photographer's Lighting Bible?
Quite disappointed... Apr 21, 2008
This book is definitely not what I expected. Too brief lighting information for every setup, not supporting the book title. Hardly any discussion of the lighting, just a description how to arrange it (with little explanation how and why it works). A lot of extra discussions which one would not expect looking at the title (for example, how the author arranged a stylist for a model shoot). I would prefer fewer arrangements with more discussion of the lighting, or at least a change of the title.
At the same time I bought "Creative Lighting Techniques for Studio Photographers" by Dave Montizambert. That I consider a much better choice to understand how studio lighting works and get creative ideas.
Great Book but over my head( make that over my budget) Apr 10, 2008
Good book. But I just have a home studio (Hasselblad, Novarton 3 head set up) seemed like everything had 2 BIG soft boxes plus 3 to 5 more strobes, geared towards a much larger studio. Lots of thing I think I can glean out, A good book!!! Not what I wanted, But a real good book, Goes into lighting of People, still lives, Pets, Food Lots of Cool Information
Great solution Feb 8, 2008
At the middle of last year I opened a photo studio. So, I can say, I'm still beginner int this topic. So, this book was very helpful for me to gt advance knowledge about art of making great photos.
Very helpful Jan 28, 2008
I thought this book was very helpful it gave many tips that will be useful. I would recommend this book to a friend.
Lighting Bible? Definitely NOT Jan 13, 2008
This book does not live up to it's title. If you are looking for a technical reference book to all aspects of studio lighting, lighting equipment, technology and techniques then you will be disappointed. This book gives simple examples of different subjects and genres with nice photo's and a basic description of the lighting setup involved. I'm only an amateur and found this book disappointing as I thought I'd find all my answers and learning in one book. I'm going to have to purchase individual books on studio lighting get the technical help I was looking for.
