Lighting People: A Photographer's Reference

Author(s): Rossella Vanon


Lighting people is the most important part of any professional photographers skill-set, whether its run-and-gun wedding photographers with portable speedlights; fashion, editorial or fine-art photographers in studios; or the many trying to learn and experience all the possibilities before specialising. Rossella Vanons contemporary style and up-to-the-minute knowledge, derived from her day-to-day experience with students on varied budgets to top-end professional clients with unlimited expectations, makes her the ideal person to teach how each kind of light works, providing a key grounding for photographers, as well as some of the more creative techniques unimagined by the authors of more traditional texts. Because time is money, especially in the studio, this book also includes an amazing reference section; fully one-third of the book is devoted to a series of photographs of the same four models, representing different gender and ethnic groups, shot from different lighting positions and against different lighting backgrounds.
