Focus on Lighting Photos free pdf Have you ever wondered if you need to use a flash in sunlight? What the best lighting is for a macro shot? How long your exposure should be in low lighting? If you have, this book is for you! Lighting affects composition, focus, exposure decisions, and pretty much everything about taking a picture.

Loaded with photos, tips, tricks, and inspiration, you can't help but walk away from this book with the critical knowledge you need to know to take the perfect picture. This title breaks down a complex subject into digestible bits through the use of tip boxes, colorful photos, and practice assignments. It includes enticing interior design that will appeal to a very visual audience. It features numerous project assignments for the budding photographer.
