Kevin Kubota’s Lighting NotebookDPMag Published in Blog
Here's a useful book. Kevin Kubota's Lighting Notebook offers a glimpse behind the camera and details on 101 different lighting setups. Kevin is an acclaimed wedding photographer, so he's used to using a variety of equipment in a variety of ways to create a variety of dramatic—and dramatically different—looks with his lighting. Though the book isn't especially technical in terms of lighting, it is filled with diagrams and pictures to help you create the exact same same lighting techniques that Kevin used in creating the example photographs in his book. It answers, fairly precisely, the questions about the types of cameras, lenses and lighting equipment used to make his favorite photographs. And that can be a very useful learning tool. Be prepared, though, as this Light Stalking review points out, Kevin relies on a wide variety of equipment—and that means you're going to want to buy a whole lot of new gear. That's either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it. Even if you don't care to invest in new gear, this guide is bound to give you a bunch of good, new ideas when it comes to lighting your shots.
