  • It's easy to spend hundreds of dollars on lights...but it isn't necessary! With the judicial use of reflectors, it is possible to turn one single light into a 5 light setup! AND that one

    light could even be the sun!

    You can get results to rival the best studio shooters with very little cost. Reflectors can even be homemade - so they cost almost nothing.

    Filters - for the most part physical "on camera" filters have dropped by the wayside due to the digital revolution.

    We still use filters, but now - with many of them - it is after the fact (in Photoshop) rather than in front of the lens. But, there ARE a few filters we still need on camera. the effects

    simply can't be easily done (or done at all) in Photoshop...

    The UV Filter - This one can literally save you thousands of dollars.

    The Polarizing Filter - this one should be in your camera bag ALL THE TIME! The results you will get can take your photography to completely new levels and it is difficult if not

    impossible to duplicate the results in Photoshop.

    The Neutral Density Filter, Graduated neutral density filters and so on...

    Read through this easy to understand and easy to implement course volume and in a matter of minutes you will have a firm grip on effectively lighting with reflectors and

    using the essential filters.

    I always like this author's writing style, straight forward and to the point. I have an ebook, and estimated it contained about 10 pages information about using photo reflectors. There was not much information there. It lacked of information about the weakness of using reflectors. Often we need an assistant to hold the reflector shooting outdoors. A little touch of wind blows the reflectors away, if we set it up on a light stand and reflector holder. There is insufficient light to be reflected onto the model if we shoot in a cloudy day. The list of problems using reflectors goes on for pages. The only benefit of using reflectors is that they are very affordable and easy to carry. The author should have included the pros and cons of using reflectors. His comparison of reflectors versus studio flash lights was irrelevant. Reflectors can never provide the flexibility, light power and punch as studio flash. Umbrellas should be classified as light modifiers, but not reflectors. If he classified umbrellas as reflectors, so are all the other light modifiers.

    Learn how to make and control light and call yourself a photographer. The book contains great solid advice on how to capture and achieve the essential without breaking the bank. Surprise! Multiple strobes are not necessarily the answer. The chapter on the 5 light studio portrait (using one light) is worth the price of the book. I have just one reservation: There is well intentioned advice for those who want to use Photoshop but cannot manage the cost; but it does not strongly enough caution that purchasing an older version may provide software that is not able to process RAW files from the most current cameras and cannot be updated to do so.

    An ideal book for all of us hobbyist photographers wanting to take our photography up a notch or two on a limited budget. In the first part of this book Dan describes in a concise and easy to read manner how to create great lighting using reflectors instead of purchasing studio lights. I can't wait to get into town to buy my first reflectors, but in the meantime I'm certainly going to try out the cheap home-made options he describes. And the filters he recommends are definitely next on my wish list. I'm so grateful for this guide to what are the most important purchases to make out of a bewildering and expensive array of equipment available.

    I have read several of Dan Eitreim's photography books and as well as lots of others. I learn something
    EVERY time I read on of his books! I am just starting out so my budget is tight. The use of reflectors
    lets you get the shot you need to get plus it saves you lots of $$$. I didn't realize all the control
    you really have with reflectors. I have one set of purchased ones but also use some I have made myself.
    Thanks Dan for the great lessons in the book! I learned alot just by doing the exercises listed.
