Thereâ€™s just too much lighting gear and lighting techniques available today, youâ€™d be forgiven for thinking some of those guys just want to sell you stuff and not really improve your craft. â€œSimplify and simplify,â€ according to Confucius, and when your mind clears up you realize you donâ€™t have to spend much to get the lighting you really need.
Thatâ€™s where this new book by Bill Hurter is headed to. â€œSimple Lighting Techniques for Portrait Photographersâ€ aims to take the fluff out of lighting techniques and point you to the direction of simplicity to be more effective and natural.
In his new book, Bill offers some help in choosing versatile lighting equipment so you can use them in many situations. He also teaches the reader how to use simple modifiers to create professional portraits just with window light. Plus, there’s more.
Bill Hurter has been a professional photographer for more than 25 years and is at present the editor of Rangefinder magazine.
