The book is well-organized, well-written and the choice of photos to illustrate the author's points is almost perfect. The book does not oversimplify nor does it brush over details. I now use the book as a reference when considering lighting setups or just as a periodic refresher concerning what to consider when lighting a portrait.
If you are at all interested in learning how to light your images--even if its only using ambient light and a speedlight--to transform a snapshot into a professional image that "pops", this is a book for you.
This book cleared up a lot of basics of direction of light and now I am taking some amazing shots with on camera bounce flash.
The only negative is the Kindle version flow and formatting. It is very random and changes when you advance then come back to a page. I would recommend the physical copy over kindle. I wish I had bought the physical copy but it was out of stock at the time.
If you want to take great people portraits or similar this is the book but don't forget to consider the others as well. They are kind of like a series. Learned more from Neil than anywhere else.
Can't wait for the next book.
Hope you keep me coming but it's going to be tough to top this one.
It is clear that a lot of thought went into the writing, structure and layout of the book and it really pays off for the reader in a very usable and educational book.
I spent so much time shooting only landscapes and had a hard time understanding how to look at light when people were added to the mix. The books Neil writes are valuable tools for learning and review. I would still be "stuck" if I did not read this.
