About the Author
Daniel H. Bennett was born in London in 1965 and lived in England until moving to the United States in 2000. A degree in electronic and electrical engineering took him into a career that’s been focused on high end desktop computers and displays, with expertise in computer graphics and display technologies. Among his passions is to communicate how technology works to audiences at any level, from school children to experienced professionals. His interest in vision and observation of the behavior of light has been life-long. On a trip to France as a young man his hosts called him “Monsieur Tête-en-l’air” (Mr. Head-in-the-air) due to his always watching for halos, rainbows, sun-dogs (parhelia), etc. He was particularly influenced by a book written in 1939 (published in English in 1954, Dover) by Professor M. Minnaert, called The Nature of Light and Color in the Open Air. "A Field Guide To Time-Varying Light Sources" was conceived as a modern successor to that book, and adopts a similar approach, while revealing the secrets of modern light sources.
