David Noton - Light, For Photographers
Light is the fundamental building block of the photographer’s craft: it’s the energy that makes vision possible, bathing our images with its beautiful and subtle variations. All photographers must understand light and how to work with to best effect, so in this book world-renowned photographer David Noton brings to bear his years of experience behind the lens to present a comprehensive, practical guide to light for photographers of all skill levels.
He looks at light in all its different forms, demonstrating how to use it with success: from front, back, and sidelighting, through high and low light, hard, soft and diffuse lighting, and onto reflected, hazy and clear light, David explains the nature of these different lighting scenarios and how to employ them to best effect in your own photography. Shooting at different times of the day presents specific challenges, so working under sunlight, twilight, moonlight, starlight and man-made illuminations will also be explored, as will working with atmospheric affects such as smog and light pollution.
With in-depth discussions on lighting for travel portraiture and creating infrared images, as well as an extended section on shooting the stars, the inspirational and practical guidance is accompanied throughout by David’s breath-taking images from around the globe. This must-have photographic guide will inform and inspire all photographers to improve their images through a deeper understanding of and feeling for that vital element – light.
