Available Light - It's hard to beat natural light for creating dynamic and meaningful images. This book will show you how to use natural light - to sculpt it, mold it, shape it and use it to achieve stunning photos. Whether it is under overcast and sunny days, backlighting and flare, window light, daylight studios, natural reflectors, and studio lighting at home, you'll discover how wonderful it is to be able to work without a studio.

The pure spontaneity of the moment with real light opens up a world of possibilities for photos. It forces you to focus on the subject and environment rather than a bunch of studio gear.
