Kubota Image Tools grew from the digital experience of Kevin who began pioneering the field of completely digital wedding photography in the 1990s. As one of the first photographers to master digital imaging, Kevin became inspired to share his experience and natural teaching ability with other photographers. He has successfully trained thousands of photographers to make the digital transition and continuously empowers existing digital photographers with new, effective workflow ideas and outstanding Photoshop® techniques.
Wiley Publishing will begin sending copies of his newest book: Kevin Kubota's Lighting Notebook: 101 Lighting Styles and Setups for Digital Photographers™, to bookstores across the country during the Fall of 2011. This complete book will provide details for how Kevin used and controlled light to capture a wide range of stunning photographs, with each picture brought to life under a different type of lighting environment. Using his experience from over 20 years as a photographer, each photo will include:
* an overhead diagram showing the locations of the photographer, subject, and each piece of lighting equipment used
* a complete list of lighting equipment used, including brand and model info
* a step-by-step summary of what Kevin encountered that led to his chosen lighting setup
Along with the release of the Lighting Notebook is the companion iPhone® and iPad® App. The interactive App will provide a convenient, portable resource for your lighting questions. Featuring hands-on tutorials with lighting diagrams, sample images, and "How It's Done" videos, the Lighting Notebook App is nothing short of a pro lighting workshop on-the-go.

Rarely does the photo industry see an educator with an equal balance of recognized artistry, technical expertise, gifted teaching ability, and the energy to inspire and motivate other photographers to push themselves to completely new levels of vision and success.
