You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
— Ansel Adams

Good studio lighting tutorials are surprisingly hard to come by. I’m sure loads of you are ready to to agree with me. There is an abundance of education out there for learning Lightroom, Photoshop, and basic studio technique, but relatively little when it comes to advanced lighting tutorials. In actual fact, much of it is poorly produced, badly taught, and, on the rare occasion, just downright wrong. That’s why I thought  would be very useful to create a book finalized to explain high-end studio lighting solutions.
