With tips for creating natural, hassle-free lighting, this reference shows photographers how to abandon complex lighting scenarios in favor of more straightforward, uncomplicated ones. Photographers will learn the advantages of simpler lighting—such as saving money by avoiding excessive equipment purchases and maintenance and making location shoots less cumbersome and more convenient. Emphasizing that photographers should imitate the sun’s natural light—not only to create a realistic setting but also to allow for genuine facial expressions from more relaxed portrait subjects—this guidebook illustrates how to create one- and two-light setups, making simple refinements with lightweight, inexpensive, and portable reflectors. Covering the basics of lighting and applying them to portraits as well as discussing the equipment available today, this resource ensures more enjoyable photography sessions for both photographers and their subjects.
