Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
want to learn all about the various photographic lighting equipment available, then this book is for
you ........ if you're a seasoned photog and are in need of a bit of a refresher on lighting to get the
creative juices flowing again this book is also for you....... Kirk style of writing is informal and very
down to earth, one gets the feeling that he is talking to you like he would talk to a friend.
He never seems to get bogged down with equipment rather he is teaching from his past experiences
about the vast choices of lighting available today...... I especially love how he shows by example that
one doesn't have to go out & spend allot of money on equipment...... in one section he shows how
he is able to shoot portraits using portable construction lights & a shower curtain! I have always
found his insight enlightening and entertaining....... This is a comprehensive book about all manner of
lighting equipment with the exception the newest lighting option of LED...... fortunately, he's just
released a book devoted to LED so if you want to learn about lighting equipment, buy this book & his
This is my least talked about book. Nothing controversial, just an overview of lots of different devices to make light or make light better. And probably my favorite.
