He also introduces readers to the proper use of standard photographic modifiers softboxes, umbrellas, octoboxes, beauty dishes, and other tools so that they can sculpt their every portrait subject with incredibly flattering light. This book is filled with over 150 inspiring and instructive images from a true master of the craft. In these pages, readers will learn step-by-step instructions for mastering the many critical concepts one must understand to gain mastery over light.
