Sometimes photographers have to shoot in less than ideal lighting situations. Maybe the wedding is mid-day in the middle of a field, or perhaps the event is in a florescent-lit room. These scenarios can be particularly intimidating for beginning photographers who don't know how to handle the many undesirable lighting situations they may encounter. This book will cover the top ten worst lighting situations and provide a variety of solutions for each. Author and professional photographer Lindsay Adler explains which solutions are most practical and why one solution might be preferable over another, examining such problems as extremely low lighting when no flash is allowed, strong backlight, and the light on an overcast day. Unlike other books that focus on natural light or lighting in general, this book addresses a very real need of beginning photographers, answering the question, "What do I do when the lighting is terrible?" Adler uses humor and candor to show how to resolve challenging lighting situations by creating shade, adjusting shutter speed, moving the subject, reenacting a scene, and more.
