Professional photographers have access to specialized and often
expensive lighting equipment, but amateurs can take great
photographs with much simpler setups or even just available light.
This guide explains how to get the best results from the most
minimal investment with plenty of patience and practice.
Photography is the art of capturing light on paper, and all that is
needed to take wonderful pictures is a sophisticated understanding
of how light works. This handbook provides that knowledge, starting
with technical explanations of film and lenses and moving through
different general scenarios (indoor, outdoor, nighttime) to
specific case histories.
