Understanding Light 2nd Edition

This is the 2nd edition of Understanding Light. It has been expanded in this edition to include many new case studies!

If you understand light and how it affects the landscape throughout the day, then you'll have a good basis to begin making good landscape images. In this eBook, Stephen Trainor covers the principles of understanding light using The Photographer's Ephemeris, while Bruce provides case studies that illustrate how the application may be used.

This eBook covers subjects such as colour temperature, geodetics, twilight, sunrise & sunset, astrophotography, and how the quality of light varies through the day.

The Photographer's Ephemeris is available as a free Desktop application (Mac, PC, Linux).

Digital Darkroom, Image Interpretation Techniques

Many people own an image editing program. It's easy to learn a computer application, but what is not easy to learn is what to do to your images and why. 

Knowing what to do to an image, rather than how to do it, is a skill that takes years in learning.

This e-book shows you how to read your images and learn what you need to do to them in the digital darkroom. The ebook contains many examples to get you on your way.

Simplifying Composition

Yes, there are certain devices you can use to aid composition, and sometimes, there are rules at play. Our brains are always balancing, weighing up scenes and in this book, I make you more aware of what's always been going on in the back of your mind, except you just didn't know it.

Simplifying Visualisation

Being able to look at a scene and successfully capture what we 'see' in our mind's eye onto our cameras sensor or film, is the fist step in visualisation. In this eBook, I cover the approaches that I use to convert a scene into a successful image capture.

Nocturne, mastering low-light photography

Nocturne - "a painting or a tone poem of a night scene".

I love creating a new reality in my pictures. Shooting on the edges of darkness or at night does just that. This book contains some essays on the subject of low light photography and is backed up with technical chapters about long exposures, tripod use and for film shooters - reciprocity.
