He takes you through all the different options that you have today for lighting a scene and for modifying the light source you have. He explains these options and when to use which.

Review: Tack Sharp by James Brandon

One of the most basic things you need to get straight when taking a photograph is to make sure it's sharp - tack sharp! If you like a softer look in your images, you can always add that later in your post-production. But making a blurry image sharp is far more difficult and in many cases even imporssible. In the 3rd edition of his book Tack Sharp: A Step By Step Guide To Nailing Focus James Brandon teaches you all the different ingredients to creating the sharpest possible images. And there are many ingredients to this. It's not just about using a tripod.

In her 7-hour video course, Lindsay Adler takes you from the very basics of working in fashion and commercial photography all the way to the intricate details of lighting a scene and to diverse retouching techniques. But this course is not only targeted at the aspiring fashion photographer. It is much more fundamental than that since it takes you through the thought process of creating an image. Lindsay shows you how to come up with an idea for a photo, how to turn that idea into a concept, and what it takes to get from that concept to your finished image.
