Background reading and research for Part four Light

I have had to research extensively for Part four on Light.

I have found two books by David Präkel (Exposure and Lighting) from the Basics Photography series from AVA Publishing ‘s Academia list very helpful. I have also referred to Bryan Peterson’s “Understanding Exposure” 3rd Edition 2010 Crown Publishing Group.

I have also found  some instructional videos webinars on the Sekonic (makers of light meters) website very useful. (

The best are by Joe Brady who, whilst promoting Sekonic lightmeters, explains how to use lightmeters effectively and gives many useful tips on using studio lighting and off-camera flash.

I have also attended a day’s workshop by local photographer Chris Williams from Mango Photography ( on using off-camera flash.
