Light painting and night photography specialist Troy Paiva (AKA Lost America) has finally written a “How To” book. It explains in full detail his easy to learn techniques for creating elaborate studio-style lighting effects with a few simple flashlights and a single, pocket-sized strobe. The book demystifies LP/NP, so even a novice can create amazing images.
All the secrets of his working process, never revealed before; from light settings and gel types, to white-balance methodology and post-production techniques are revealed. Each of the 44 images gets the full treatment; not only full explanations of his lighting and exposure methodology, but also anecdotes on compositional strategy, waiting for the decisive moment and making the best of difficult working situations.
Loved it! The breakdown of the individual pictures was extraordinarily informative. This ebook is a steal at 10 bucks!
Great Book! Packed with Value
I'm just into the eBook, but so far am very impressed with what I've read so far. Invaluable information on the gear you need for night photography and painting with light. I've tackled night photography before and covered it in a photography class at the junior college, but this book has a new tidbit I can use on every single page.
