Essentials: A Subject-Centric Approach
Lighting Essentials: A Subject-Centric Approach for Digital Photographers
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. It teaches how to identify qualities the subject possesses that the light will react with and how to use this knowledge to create perfect photographs. Through a variety of amply illustrated shoots, the book explains how to approach each image from the perspective of controlling the subject’s appearance to match the photographer’s vision for the picture.

have decided to go for it and take part in this year's Movember.
We have created a team for The Societies and if any members wish to join our "hair-raising" experience you can so do via the link below:
It's not "Just for Men"...(ok I'll stop now), girls can join as a "Mo Sista" (an individual that is dedicated to supporting the Mo Bros in her life through their moustache growing journey). These inspirational women are committed to raising awareness of men's health issues and much needed funds for men's health along the way.
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of mens faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for mens health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
