Richly illustrated with Harold Davis's beautiful images, Creative Lighting explores exposure and how to effectively use many kinds of lighting, as well as creating and using shadows and reflectivity. Then it takes you into the digital darkroom where you'll find out how to enhance lighting effects with Adobe Photoshop.
