Anyone who starts their photographic career with legendary photographers Annie Leibovitz and Mary Ellen Mark has to be off to a good start – right?
Photographer and photo educator Steve Begleiter did just that and he’s just written his sixth book Photographic Lighting for Everybody: Techniques for Mastering Light With Any Camera-Including iPhone (Pro Photo) which includes a section on iPhone photography, though clearly all lighting principals can be applied across platforms.
Unfortunately, I’ve not had a chance to dive into the covers yet, but I have had this book highly recommended to me from a creative professional who I respect and admire and of course there’s always so much more to learn about light in a photographic and artistic context.
Also, as I mentioned, anyone who started off learning their profession with those amazing female photographers and has already written five books has to be worth a read.
I hope you’ll give it a whirl and let me know what you think in the comments below.
Photographic Lighting for Everybody: Techniques for Mastering Light With Any Camera-Including iPhone by Steven H. Begleiter is published by Amherst Media, Inc and will be available in June 2020.
