This paper back book in Focal Press' handy 19x24.5cm format is part of the Essential Skills series which has a school text book approach so it won't suit those who prefer an armchair read. This is a get up and do it book. Each chapter has a section with information on particular aspects of studio photography along with several useful assignments to help you practice and grasp the subject. Then at the end there's a revision bit which checks your understanding of the subject. The chapters cover basic studio housekeeping through lighting exposure, image capture, and creative control. You then move into Still life and people assignments, which will really help you get to grips with all aspects of studio photography. An essential read for photographers wanting to make a living from advertising or product photography.
