What people say:

"You get all the basics in this book, including a very comprehensive overview of what is out there in lighting, but they go way beyond the basics, including how to survey a location simply to avoid problems cropping up later in the shoot…. The other great thing I find very helpful in this book are all the practical tips of the trade that are regularly slipped into the text…. There's a fund of really practical information here, in just 300 pages packed with first class photographs, clear diagrams and tables…. Focal Press gives excellent value with this volume; it is a powerhouse of information on lighting for film, illuminating the nooks and crannies as well as painting the scene with flattering light." — www.shootingpeople.org
