Photographic Lighting Simplified is a great book for the beginner like myself. It explains in novice language the details concerning all aspects of photographic lighting. When to use and not to use various lights depending on the situation. The book covers hotlights, flash, strobe lights and accessories. Also covered are exposer-reflective meters to manually set your camera and correct use of the Kodak gray scale for proper exposer. I read the entire 163 pages in about 3 days. The book also has 9 self-assignment for you to try out on you own. All pictures in the book include camera settings and shot detail that make it easy for you to reproduce a similar shot. All photos are in black & white except for the cover page. At first I found this distracting but then realized that black & white photos show the best contrast and light on the subjects in the photographs. I bought the book to improve my knowledge and skills to do lighting for desktop studio photos for Ebay.
Another book that I have heard about but haven't been able to track down yet is Digital Desktop Studio Photography by Rick Ashley & Dennis Curtin. Amazon does not carry this book yet.

I have three main criticisms of this book. First, the book has no color pictures when it is clear the author did not take many of these pictures in B&W (or if she did she needs to find another profession). This is ridiculous when the subject of the book is photography and the pictures are an important learning tool. Second, the author spends too much time on hotlights and flashes when most photographers (even amateurs) will be using strobes because of the availability of light modifiers and other advantages.Third, the last half of the book is about doing photographic assignments rather than adding more information (and there is a lot more) about lighting. In sum, I would skip this book if you're light on cash and get "Master lighting guide for potrait photographers" and "Beginner's lighting guide to photographic lighting" which are both excellent (avoid "basic studio lighting").

This book was quite disappointing, so much so that if it were possible I would ask for my money back. The author belabors her writings to the point that it becomes irritating. For instance, she explains how electricity heats the filament of a bulb to make it light up. Superfluous information! She also - as another reviewer wrote - publishes all her pictures in black and white, even those she took in color. What was the purpose of that? To make the book cheaper to print?

There is some useful information in the book if you take the time to sift through it all, and it could have been condensed into half the size without losing any valuable content.

Terrible format and poor editing. It looks like the author made some Xerox copies along withsome notes scribbled with a Sharpie marker. The entire book is in black and white. Photos look like they were taken with a disposable camera not a pro photographer's SLR. Very disappointed with this book. Not much usable information. Do not recommend this book.

I learned a great deal from this book. It's well-written, and the explanations are in plain language and easy to understand, yet not dumbed-down. It gives the how-to's without requiring expensive equipment and explains how to do things with simple equipment so beginners really can learn how to use photographic lighting professionally.

I was a little disapointed when i received this book. the image makes it appeat as if it's in color. needless to say i was a bit disappointed when i recieved a black and white copy. i don't recall the description saying it was in blck and white.
Good basic information but not very detailed. Not for the intermediate or advanced photographer.
