The Techniques of Natural Light Photography

What makes or breaks a picture? Composition, of course, and perhaps less obvious but equally fundamental--light. "Subtle or dramatic, the impact of light on an image completely alters how that image is perceived," asserts Jim Zuckerman, who discusses the qualities of light--direction, diffusion, harshness--and how to use them as creative tools. There are many impressive color photographs (including twilight panoramas of Rio de Janeiro and interiors of Spanish architectural wonders), but few illuminate Zuckerman's text like his multiple images of a bikini-clad model on a beach, taken during a rapidly-changing sunset. While he is generous with technical details and data, he does not cover black and white photography.

Jim Zuckerman also teaches excellent online photography courses here at BetterPhoto.com - Eight Steps to More Dramatic Photography, Mastering Light, and Creative Techniques in Photoshop.

Light is around us everyday. We do not live in the dark, learning to see the world and the light it offers assists us in using our own creativity to maximize the use of natural light.The book is divided up into lighting sections, from sunrise to twilight and some extras. I felt it was very well laid out and a lot of detail I can put to use in my own photography.
