Review quote

If you don't know a tota light from a omni from a soft box or a fresnel; if you are unsure how to light a scene to achieve a particular look; if you think that lighting for a night shoot is to simply take your cam out at night and press 'record', if you fail to understand the difference between hard and soft light or find lighting terminology undecipherable, than this book is a must. Even if you already know all those things there are excellent and useful chapters for the advanced shooter and lighting tech covering low budget setups, advanced lighting setups." - Steve Douglas, kenstone.net
