Complete Guide to Light

Complete Guide to Light

by Mark Cleghorn (Author)


A photographer's understanding of light is fundamental to the success of their images. When trying to control light in photographs, technical knowledge is closely linked to creativity and a grasp of both is vital. In this comprehensive guide, Mark Cleghorn introduces us to and fully explains the important subject of light. His clear, no-nonsense style means that the reader can really get to grips with this fascinating subject, whilst clear graphic diagrams (demonstrating how to arrange studio lights around the subject), mean effects can be recreated easily. The chapters cover: understanding light, ambient light, on-camera flash, studio flash and Photoshop techniques.Mark Cleghorn is considered to be one of the most creative and influential portrait photographers today. One of a few photographers to be awarded a Fellowship by all three major photographic organisations, he has worked professionally for more than 20 years and specialises in portraiture and wedding photography. Mark lives in Cardiff.
