Description

This book utilizes award winning photographer Rossella Vanon’s contemporary style and up-to-the-minute knowledge to teach how each kind of light works. This approach provides a key grounding for photographers, followed by creative techniques that go beyond traditional approaches. Unique to this book is a reference section that clearly presents a series of photographs of the same four models, representing different gender and ethnic groups, shot from different lighting positions and against different backgrounds. This versatile segment is organized in such a way that photographers can study it for hours when time permits or flip through it in moments while shooting.
