Comments about Amphoto Book: The Portrait Photographer's Lighting Style Guide:

This book has execellent examples of the photographs along with diagramed lighting. It's very good if you are trying to experiment with new lightin technics or just starting out with photography. The book gives you all the settings, cameras, lights and use of several locations. The biggest flaw is that it could contain a little more literature for new photographers.
