Light, vibrant and malleable, is the greatest tool at the disposal of portrait photographers. It sculpts the face, adds definition to the body, and puts a sparkle in the eyes. It creates drama and intrigue—or even a soft, romantic feel—at the photographer's whim. In the book Master Lighting Guide for Portrait Photographers from Amherst Media, master photographer Christopher Grey teaches portrait lighting from start to finish, showing you how to control light effectively for unmatched results. You'll learn the function and positioning of studio lighting, aided by clearly illustrated lighting diagrams that will help you emulate a vast array of lighting effects—from soft and flattering to edgy and dramatic. 

From high and low key lighting strategies, to techniques for simulating the look of sunlight in the studio, to understanding light ratios, to the creative application of mismatched film setting and light source, this book will open your eyes to a whole new world of imaging possibilities.
