LED Lighting is a modern, sleek book, much like the lighting technique it teaches us about.
LED lighting is very much an up and coming technique that is becoming more and more popular. These lights are much more versatile than other older lighting types, as this book shows us.
With LED, the user can change the warmth of the light, making them useful for a lot more things than ordinary lighting. They are quiet, have no flicker and provide a continuous light source.
Kirk Tuck first goes the many pros and seemingly few cons of LED lighting, before moving on to how an LED light works. He then goes on to talk us through accessories, and how to get great colour with LED lighting before getting on to how to take various types of photo using LEDs.
The book is very informative, and uses diagrams to demonstrate where lights should be laid out in different situations, which is extremely useful for photographers who are starting out in professional lighting and may need guidance like this.
Tuck covers all the possible issues and explains why he chooses the methods he does to create the best looking effect. The book is easy to follow and an invaluable tool for anyone who is using LED lights professionally, or is an amateur looking to learn more about using LEDs effectively.
