Format: Paperback
This is a great book if you already have some knowledge of photography and own Nikon equipments. I already owned Nikon gear when I bought this book. So it was very helpful. Also there are lots of things that you can learn from it even if you have camera other than Nikon. The quality of pictures were very good and his writing style is easy to understand. He really shows way to get great effects with one or more than one light source. This book motivated me to shoot more challenging pictures.

The before and after shots in this book are spectacular. For example, Krist shows you a picture in an ordinary lab room with flourescent lights and no special lighting. Then he shows you how to make it a magazine-quality photo with light fillers, gels, etc. Exceptional book.

Bob Krist is a master photographer who has come across all the difficult lighting problems and has found ways to overcome then. He shows you how he did it--in a clear explanation and with diagrams. Bob shows many comparison shots-- of how the shot looked and what he did to make it a great shot. Bob is a down to earth photographer who shows how to use what you have and not go out and buy the store for a shot. I recommend this book for all levels of photogrhers who want to make better pictures.

The best, most carefully written book on location lighting I've read. Needs to be updated for digital (all references are to film and the associated color correction issues). Can be skimmed for the great examples, each explained in detail, or read through to get his narrative as well. Most of the work has been for national magazines, so it is slick and impressive. I will read and re-read this book.

Format: Paperback
I find this book to be fairly easy read (english is not my first language) though you probably need to have some basic knowledge of photography. He illustrates and describes how he has taken the pictures shown in the book, and it seems to me that it is more a book on personal experiences, and therefor it's mainly about use of his own equiptment (Nikon SLR, Nikon SB24/26 flash etc.)

This book would prove to be of utmost benefit to those who use a Nikon camera and an SB series flash. You would also benefit from the book if you are taking pictures for large corporations, which the author says has not been done since the 1980s. The book is a little too limited in scope to prove to be of great value. SOME of the diagrams are helpful.

As a pro in a remote location I constantly need an opening to new ideas, Bob's book provided this. The book is very well laid out, clear and has already improved my techniques conciderably.

In reality it doesn't matter what camera system you have, this book is a boon to anyone interested in any kind of lighting, studio, location, what ever. Many of the shots were done with a studio system or non-dedicated flash units. Bob Krist is a master at blending ambient light and flash and shows you how to do it in numerous situations with many real world examples. On top of that he gives you an insight into lighting for scientific/technical subjects I have not seen in other books. This book is a great find, don't pass it up!
