direction & quality of light
I tried to distill the essence of what we, as photographers, work with – light! Before we can truly grasp on-camera flash and off-camera flash, and really, any kind of photography, we have to be aware of the direction and quality of light. We need to observe the light that we have, and then decide how best to use it, or enhance it.
With this book, I try my best to share those “aha!” moments with you, and I do believe this book can make a difference to your photography.

Errata & Corrections – Direction Of Light
I would like to correct an error in my book, Direction & Quality Of Light:
(No matter how many times work is cross-checked, entropy will have its way.)
- The photo shown in Plate 1-12 on page 19, was shot with direct, off-camera flash. No diffusion. There is a contradictory statement there that a softbox was used. This is incorrect. Just the bare flash was used, off-camera on a monopod being held up by an assistant.
