Michael Freeman, the author of more than 20 books on various aspects of photography, now helps digital photographers see (and understand) the light! Because good lighting is key to a picture's success, it's a topic of interest to anyone who picks up a digital camera...and Freeman's comprehensive manual gives readers an essential toolbox of techniques and creative ideas. Find out how to create and manipulate lighting scenarios for professional-looking photos. Examine the many varieties of natural light, from blazing sunlight to gentle twilight, as well as incandescent and fluorescent lights. Make the most of your camera's flash and lighting equipment, including diffusers, shades, and reflectors. From shooting techniques to imaging tricks, this provides photographers with a solid groundwork for producing top-quality pictures.
