By now, you should be familiar with the fact that photography is all about lighting. Whether it’s natural or man-made, light is the first deciding factor whether the photo is good or it just plain sucks. Joe McNally has been in the shooting business for decades now and this new book is a follow-up to his many wonderful publications. Sketching Light (Voices that Matter) is from the same guy that gave us The Moment it Clicks and The Hot Shoe Diaries. It delves on the use of speedlights (mainly Nikons) but tackles on professional lights as well. If you don’t want your photos to suck, use lighting properly. This book may just show you how. $25.
We hope you enjoyed this Sketching Light article!
