..a combo of previous "how to" cook books..!! Nov 18, 2007
This is actually a combo of previous "how to" cook books with all essence on it. If you don't have his previous works or want to have "One" only, this is your choice..!! The weight of this book is kind of heavy, but very useful and interesting..!!
Good but not great Nov 13, 2007
This book does a great job of giving a really clear graphical overview of the lighting setups of each photo in the book. My biggest hangup was that some of the pictures have no lighting setups at all or are setups with only an on camera flash, etc. Obviously it's nice to know how different looks are achieved, and in a way it's nice to have a reference that you might consider, "how not to take a photograph", I guess I was expecting to see more conventional pro photography. (examples: the Strange Trinity photo, Orange Trousers photo, etc.)
sorry but really not very good Oct 11, 2007
the idea and concept for this book is brilliant . BUT the diagrams are the only thing that look modern in this book, the pictures are really old and theres not one i'd aspire to take. Infact by todays standards of photography they look amateurish. Theres a shot of two supermodels , but they are obviously 20 years old and probably amongst the first and the worst they've done. This book should be retitled ' how not to photograph people' . If the authors kept everything the same but had decent modern looking pictures by people that would not be laughed out of a picture editors office then it would be worth its weight in gold!
dissapointing book.. Sep 24, 2007
I was looking for a good lightning book and got this one because of the relativ good reviews. BUT BUT.. i dont even think the authors are pro photographers - just have a look at their web site - a joke!!. Anyway this is not a book with images done by them but by other pros. But it is their text, one must assume, made for every lightning setup and it is lacking everything. Just diagrams - sometimes with up to 9 umbrellas / heads for one shot without any further explanation. Totally waste of money - for learning; get cristopher greys " master portrait lightning".
Solid Book, Some Silly Setups Sep 10, 2007
This is a good book, definitely not for beginners, and some of the setups shown are ridiculously overimplemented.
