Photographers who shoot on location with traditional studio lighting equipment may spend more time packing and porting their expensive equipment than designing beautiful lighting. Fortunately, Kirk Tuck has found a better way. Using small, computerized, battery-powered flash units and lightweight accessories, Tuck shows you how to get the top-quality results you want and arrive on location with more energy and a better ability to focus on creative problem solving. Packed with incredible images and step-by-step techniques, this book is a must for commercial, wedding, and portrait photographers who want to maximize their time behind the camera and minimize their time spent hauling cumbersome lighting equipment.
- Choosing digital flash equipment, controllers, and power sources
- Tips for using small flash units for maximum effect when lighting people indoors and out
- Light modifiers for softer lighting effects
- Blending flash with existing light for more natural-looking effects
- Accurately controlling color temperatures to minimize post production corrections
- "There are lots of books on light and lighting. But to my knowledge, this is the first one that specifically addresses so much of what you can do with small flashes while shooting in a corporate/editorial style...This is a book for photographers who want to learn how to light clean and corporate, without buying (or hauling around) a ton of lighting gear." -Strobist
