In this book you will learn how light and shadow can be used to compose photographs. Example images and diagrams illustrate lighting concepts and demonstrate how different sources of light affect a subject. Photographers of all levels are bound to improve their skills and cultivate a new appreciation for light design as they discover how to successfully use a variety of lighting tools.
