Complete Guide to Lighting £18.50 inc 1st class post
A photographer's understanding of light is fundamental to the success of their images. When trying to control light in your photographs, technical knowledge is closely linked to creativity - a grasp of both is vital. In this comprehensive guide, Mark Cleghorn introduces us to and fully explains the important subject of light. His clear, no-nonsense style means that you will really get to grips with this fascinating subject, whilst clear graphic diagrams (demonstrating how to arrange studio lights around your subject), mean you can recreate the affect you want easily. The chapters cover:- understanding light, ambient light, on-camera flash, studio flash and Photoshop techniques.
Deep Bevel Mount Kit: £58
Show photographs in classic style without spending a fortune. Producing Fine Art photography is all about quality of the image. Taking time and care to get it right, only to use standard mounts and frames is criminal. Deep bevel mounts look stunning, but don’t assume they are difficult to produce. Simply line a mount with decorated strips of foam board, giving an added depth of 5mm around the image. Keep it classically simple with a white linen edge, or be more adventurous with a rolled gold bevel. DIYframing has put together a special deep bevel mount package. It has the materials and extra kit needed to create amazing quality mounts. Part of the package is a sheet explaining how to complete the projects. All our Handy Hints project sheets are free to download from the UK School of Framing page: just register with DIYframing.
