Techniques for Studio and Location Shoots by Dr. Glenn Rand

Amherst Media has released Lighting for Photography: Techniques for Studio and Location Shoots by Dr. Glenn Rand, a professional photographer and professor of photography at the Brooks Institute. He is also the author of numerous books, including Film and Digital Techniques for Zone System Photography.

Dr. Rand’s new book presents the tools that are needed to create and control photographic lighting, going beyond avoiding bad lighting to gaining an understanding of how to use lighting as the ultimate tool of the photographer, whether with digital capture or film.

The book begins with how light is created and the optical functions that provide the ultimate controls for lighting. These underpinnings are followed with a discussion of the qualities of light. Next, the book covers the use of various control methods for manipulating and modifying light, as well as how to best measure and capture it. With these basics in hand, the book then moves on to discuss defining the shape and form of the subjects, followed by a brief description of lighting highly reflective surfaces and transparent materials. Finally, the book addresses the specific types of lighting equipment used by professional photographers.
