Lighting Interiors is in Print!

I get a few requests for a print version of my eBook, The Essential Guide to Lighting Interiors, and so I’m happy to announce that now it’s available (but be prepared to spend some $$).

I have to say that I don’t think this is a very good idea: we have enough dead trees already without printing things that are (frankly) perfectly good on an iPad. But if you feel strongly about it, you can now order the book from Lulu.com.

It’s $126(!), which is slightly more than half the price of getting it printed at Kinko’s. I’ve seen a copy, and Wow! They did a good job — it looks great!

Lighting Interiors – 2nd Edition is Live!

Almost a year in the making…it’s here! I’ve given “The Essential Guide to Lighting Interiors” a vigorous overhaul, doubling the page count (277 pages…yikes!) and adding four new chapters as well as a bonus section at the end.

If you’re not familiar with it, this is an eBook (PDF download, click here to buy it) that covers lighting techniques for interiors photography, with a strong bent towards real estate photography. Small flash is used throughout, and the photos are shot and presented with either zero photoshopping, or extremely minimal re-touching (which gets discussed every time). My philosophy with photography, and especially for real estate photography, is to make a deliverable photo entirely on location, so that I can produce a JPG with absolutely minimal RAW adjustments¬† — or maybe none at all — the least time spent in post-production possible.
