Last week I wandered through Boarders and discovered that Light: Science and Magic is out with a new edition, its third. The book is my favorite book on lighting, hands down. I was a little concerned because I hoped that they hadnt changed the text too much. Well, they havent. It is basically the same text, but with updated photo-illustrations. So, if you have the second edition, the new edition is not a must have. Albeit, I did enjoy reading the text without any of it already high-lighted. For those not familiar with the book, it is not a follow the diagram book. Light: Science and Magic deals with how light behaves, the theory behind lighting and how surface reflections affect the final photograph. The idea is that once you know how light behaves and surfaces reflect it, you can light anything. A great book for the beginner to advanced photographer.
