The Studio Photographer's Lighting Bible explores lighting through the working relationships of the studio photographer, and the skills and techniques used for lighting in other disciplines. Covering commercial, practical, technical and creative issues, it identifies how studio photographers can work successfully with other professionals, what skills they can learn from related fields, and how they can use these to benefit their own work. Showcase images, backed up with clear 3-dimensional lighting set-up diagrams, are presented as case studies, from brief to final image, to give readers solid practical knowledge and reveal successful working methods. These cover creative and technical issues, unusual techniques, tools and equipment, props, and accessories. Instances in which the requirements for digital and film photography differ are highlighted, and key features and considerations, including postproduction issues, are noted.
