· Lighting diagrams & gear
· How to build your career

From finding your vision, to building your dream team, this book will provide you with the essential gear and know-how to capture the looks of the media world that leap off the page or screen.

"Dixie Dixon is a truly wonderful, vibrant young talent in the field of fashion and lifestyle photography. In this book, she takes you on a lively, complete tour of not only how to make compelling, beautiful photographs, but also how to grow a business, develop a signature look, make your own breaks, gather clients and keep them, use social media well, and assemble a great support team. And that's the short list. This book is full of gems about the seemingly small details that are essential to success." - Joe McNally

Capturing Light

Michael Freeman
Authors:
Michael Freeman

For professional photographers, chasing the light, waiting for it, sometimes helping it, and finally capturing it is a constant preoccupation and for some, an obsession. Drawing on four decades of working with light, Michael Freeman takes a simple but practical approach to interpreting, reacting to, and capturing photography's most valuable commodity.Practical advice is organised into three straightforward sections: Waiting, Chasing, and Helping. Begin by mastering the art of patience, and recognise the immense value of anticipating and planning for gorgeous light that's just over the horizon. Then learn the techniques to meet otherwise transient and fleeting lighting conditions halfway, with quick thinking and fast reactions. Finally, make the most of the tools at your disposal to enhance and manipulate light as you find it, covering everything from in-the-field shooting choices to technical transformations in post-production. This is the method of a working professional the way to interpret, approach, and master whatever lighting situation is thrown at you and always get the shot, no matter what.
