The New Lighting Bundle Deal

Christopher Grey's Advanced Lighting Techniques
Illustrating various lighting techniques employed by professional photographers, this unique guidebook demonstrates how to create more visually complex effects.

Lighting Essentials: A Subject-Centric Approach
Encouraging photographers to take a subject-oriented approach to lighting, this manual shows it is possible to make better decisions about both the technical and artistic aspects of lighting.

Minimalist Lighting Professional Techniques for Location Photography
Photographers who shoot on location with traditional studio lighting equipment may spend more time packing and porting their expensive equipment than designing beautiful lighting. Fortunately, Kirk Tuck has found a better way. Using small, computerized, battery-powered flash units and lightweight accessories, Tuck shows you how to get the top-quality results you want

Normally £15.00 each but for all 3 books for only £40.00 including free postage and packing to UK customers.
