About this eBook
Light painting and night photography specialist Troy Paiva (AKA Lost America) has finally written a “How To” book. It explains in full detail his easy to learn techniques for creating elaborate studio-style lighting effects with a few simple flashlights and a single, pocket-sized strobe. The book demystifies LP/NP, so even a novice can create amazing images.
All the secrets of his working process, never revealed before; from light settings and gel types, to white-balance methodology and post-production techniques are revealed. Each of the 44 images gets the full treatment; not only full explanations of his lighting and exposure methodology, but also anecdotes on compositional strategy, waiting for the decisive moment and making the best of difficult working situations.
What People Are Saying
This book is excellent both for novice night photographers and those with experience. Troy reveals many secrets that it has taken him years of trial and error to discover. The book is well worth the price of admission, as it will jumpstart you on the road to successful night photography and provide novel ways of approaching many different subjects. If you already have some experience shooting at night, you will learn techniques that will give your images that extra edge. The book is well written and I highly recommend it."— Dave Evans
