Available Light Photography is one of a line of lighting books from Amherst Media.
This title looks at using the light already available to you – so any light source that does not involve you setting up studio lighting for. The book helps you to make the best of any available light source and get correct exposure any time, anywhere.
The books talks us through hard and soft light, falloff and other basic terms before delving in to the world of available light. Its starts with exposure, that key part of any photograph, and how good exposure can be found. Literally every aspect of light is covered in this book, to enable you to take good photos whatever the lighting you may find yourself with.
After covering the essentials and basics, the book then goes on to explain how to modify available light by using reflectors, overhead blocks, using flash and more.
As well as looking at available light sources, the book goes into how composition can be used to full advantage with available light. This book is a great read for anyone looking to learn more about getting good results with available light photography.
Brilliantly visual with full page photos, this book is a must for anyone who is looking to better their available light photography. The book is also great for those looking to better their photographic skills in general, as all photography uses available light in some way.
