This book is renowned for being the book to own to understand lighting!
This is better than all the other how to books on the market which just provide set examples for photographers to follow. Light Science and Magic provides photographers with a comprehensive theory of the nature and principles of light to allow individual photographers to use lighting to express their own creativity. It will show you in-depth how to light the most difficult subjects such as surfaces, metal, glass, liquids, extremes (black-on-black and white-on-white), and people.
With more information specific for degital photographers, a brand new chapter on equipment, much more information on location lighting, and more on photographing people, you'll see why this is one of the only recommended books by www.strobist.com.

"If you are a photographer of any type, especially on who does studio work, this is a must have reference." ? BC Books (May 2007)
"The first book on photographic lighting that is worth using as a text. Light - Science and Magic is about principles, not cheap tricks or the authors' portfolio."
-Pete Christman, Savannah College of Art and Design.

Summary: "This new edition of the book is based on the behavior of light, and its principles that will not change because the fundamental physics does not.
