2.0 out of 5 stars Okay but not great for Kindle
Lots of good information and the author does a good job explaining the shots.
The equipment is more studio-focused and not suitable for on location shoots.
It doesn't incorporate modern equipment like flashes and triggers.
The images are blurry and not rendered well from Kindle device, and do not flow will with the text.
As a result you find yourself...

Ce commentaire est de: Master Lighting Guide for Portrait Photographers (Paperback)
Christopher Grey is a master of photographic lighting, and this expertise shines through in his latest book, appropriately titled, Master Lighting Guide for Portrait Photographers. Grey eases his readers into the topic with a discussion on the properties and quality of light and a review of modern lighting equipment, both store-bought and homemade. Then, after an informative chapter on lighting ratios (a frequently misused and misunderstood term) he embarks on an instructive and comprehensive journey that covers everything from classic lighting styles to the advanced lighting methods used by today's top studio photographers. Beautiful color photos and helpful diagrams complement each scenario.
Grey's writing is conversational and witty, which is a blessing when one is digesting material that, in duller texts, can quickly veer off into technical mumbo jumbo. In addition to his lighting information, he sprinkles every chapter with plenty of useful advice - things he's learned during his 30-year career - for saving money, choosing backdrops, building trust with subjects, capturing better expressions and much, much more. I'd recommend the book to anyone interested in portrait photography. The photographs alone are well worth the purchase price, but the lessons enabling readers to create similarly stunning photos make the book an extremely good value.

Lots of good information and the author does a good job explaining the shots.
The equipment is more studio-focused and not suitable for on location shoots.
It doesn't incorporate modern equipment like flashes and triggers.
The images are blurry and not rendered well from Kindle device, and do not flow will with the text.
As a result you find yourself constantly scrolling backwards and forwards.

This is one of the best investments you can make if you are interested in learning how to use strobes and studio lights... I still refer back to it 5 years later... Highly recommend.
