Light science and magic by Fil Hunter, Steven Biver and Paul Fuqua
I’ve just finished reading this book on lighting and have to say its one of the best lighting books I’ve read, clear and concise with good examples throughout. It covers the basic principals of light, shape, reflection management, family of angles, surface appearance, metal, glass and many other topics. Finishing with a whole section on portable lights and battery strobes.
As with all the books so far on the course I can honestly say I have read this book cover to cover, tried many of the examples in the book and truly learned a great deal from the experience. Before you get to the light section of AoP I suggest reading this book.
