Lighting Techniques for Fashion and Glamour Photography

Lighting Techniques for Fashion and Glamour Photography

In fashion and glamour photography, nothing can create a mood quite like light. It can evoke a mysterious feel, a playful quality, or even a natural, sun-kissed look that renders the model simply radiant.

In this book, Dantzig outlines the basics of light theory, then moves to a discussion on metering. He describes the lighting equipment used by fashion and glamour photographers and advises on the best placement for lights when creating fashion shots and beauty images.

Discussion on the additive nature of light, the angle of incidence=angle of reflectance law, working with models, and other savvy tips will leave you with greatly improved, highly marketable images.


*Identifying the best possible light sources and placement

*Using light to set the mood of the image

*Techniques for studio and location photography
